  • 8.0.Very Good

    The service was excellent, very pleasant reception, spacious motel unit, very clean, towels changed every day, also very quiet and a back lawn for our grand-daughter to play on. But the best feature was the location, we could walk to Pukekura part for the Festival of Lights. Also not far to drive to the local beach and super market. We have been staying there now for at least 6 or 7 years. Motel unit in need of a bit of TLC but no big deal.

    Handy Location

    Nice and spacious but needed upgrading. Very tired. Virtually no service but people pleasant enough. Was okay for what we wanted and the bonus was we were able to have our own rooms. Handy walk to town and Pukekura Park.
