Cheap, in need of some TLC

Posted Oct 17, 2016
Pros: Price and location were good.
Cons: Lots of small general repairs. Light fittings needed to be attached properly, all light bulbs should be working. Shower could use some love.
Location: 20 minutes from Fielddays where Equidays was being held which is what we were down for.
This was the only hotel that had 2 bedrooms with more than 1 large bed (double, queen or king) that didn't cost ridiculous amounts of money. The ad said it had 2x queen beds but it actually only had 1 queen and 1 double. Condition of the rooms were pretty poor, light fittings were falling out of the ceiling (not like dangling from wires but not sitting flush how they should). Not all the light bulbs worked. The shower control was broken (still usable) and the walls in the shower were showing a lot of wear, edges/joins were starting to flake off the laminate. All the doors were hard to open and shut, hinged doors were tight and sliding doors didn't slide smoothly. Also for a "Family" suite the TV was pretty small, you'd have a hard time fitting your family around it.

Chiefs Rugby Game stay over.

Family room was old and outdated, cobwebs in one room, a smudged organic substance in carpet in another room. Could not contact reception/personnel at all at 9pm all phone numbers went to voice mail. Paid $190. Hotel owner was very polite and thanked us for the stay, good customer service at check-in time.

suited our needs

Can be hard to find accomodation for 5 at a decent price, this meet our needs in that area. Could have been cleaner with surfaces wiped down but mostly it was fine. Facilities to make breakfast and wash dishes would have been a bonus! There is a jug and fridge but washing dishes in the bathroom isn't ideal

Convenient and comfortable

Posted Oct 20, 2013 on Hotels
The hotel is basic and in places a bit jaded but as long as you are ready for that it has everything you want - HD TV, coffee/tea, off road parking, and for my $89 I got double bed, single bed, couch, kitchen with microwave, shower/toilet/handbasin. The reception was helpful and the location is ok. It was clean and tidy. You get what you pay for and this gives you waht you pay for.

Clean tidy room, pay for what you get. Happy with what the room provided. No sky tv which was a little disappointing.

Wonderful spa bath.

The only real complaint was that the restaurant was supposed to be open Mon-Sat, we stayed Sat nite and went to have dinner and it was closed. Change the signage perhaps?

a bit funny...but in a good way

Posted Jul 16, 2013 on Hotels
Check in was smooth and very informative of the room's...unique features...like antique space age lighting. There's a pool! Looked clean but didn't use it. There was a bar! But it seemed deserted, the one beer I bought there was expired and they seemed confused to see another human. Overall, sweet bath tub win us over. Seriously, get the jet tub.

Pros: Handy location
Cons: As above
Location: Handy
It was uncomfortable. The room was drafty and cold. We needed the heater on full all the time and overnight on mid heat. There was no sink to fill the jug and it wouldn't fit under the tap in the bathroom basin, so good thing we had a bath to fill the jug from bath taps. Both drinking glasses were dirty with something pink and sticky inside the bottom of them. The bathroom wall between the tiles were dirty and mouldy. A third of one curtain had snapped off it's hooks and was just hanging there, looked tacky. It was all very outdated and disappointing.
