    Fabulous

    Loved the mineral pool. When we booked, we didn't know there was an elevator, which was a nice pleasant surprise as I traveled with my mother who couldn't really do stairs. Parking was easy, and the motel cat was also very friendly. The location was great and as the motel can be access via Malfroy, it saved me having to do a u-turn in order to access it so that's another plus.

    The hot water was ... mild at best. The temperature was fine as it was hot enough, it was the water pressure that I have issue with. It wasn't just soft, it was basically so weak, I almost couldn't wash my hair with it. The motel could be cleaner, though it was acceptable. However, the bed was too soft for me. It was so terrible I couldn't sleep, but it definitely could not be said to have support. Another issue I had was bugs, but I guess that's not the motel's fault, but rather because it's summer. However, one big minus point for this hotel, was the lack of privacy while no one is in the room. They had simple curtains to block the corridor facing windows and glass pane door, which was fine so long as the door was locked from the inside. But if everyone was to leave the room, and to lock it from the outside, the design was such that one has to leave the curtain open for the door and thus allowing anyone to walk by the room to be able to tell that no one was inside. We drove down from Auckland so didn't have valuables with us to worry about, but if someone was say an international tourist, there was very little chance of hiding anything from plain sight. So the motel should definitely consider providing more coverage for the door with say blinds or other less see-through materials.

    The unit was very clean and roomy. Great for a family of 4-5. Very quiet, we experienced very liitle road noise or noise from other guests. Handy location with lots of supermarkets, shopping and food outlets close by.

    There seemed to be a bit of a hot water issue (to be fair quite common in many motels). Very low pressure so shower quite weak. Also room had own spa but water to fill was only luke warm at best. Motel does have private mineral pools though so spa not essential

    central location, Elevator, Spa pool in room , Free wifi ,

    The room we were given was very tired, mouldy curtains , hooks missing from curtains, ill fitting curtains on main door leaving gaps at either end, graffiti scratched in to painted wall , lack of bedside tables. Badly worded and incorrect spelling of instructions in Hotel room folder.

    Easy to check in, Friendly receptionist, Liked the hot pool. All necessary facilities OK.

    1. Lace curtain in bathroom dirty on the bottom edge. 2. Water did not drain quickly from shower. Water pressure in shower not suffcient. Not practical to use the spa in these circumstances. 3. I had to tighten the shower head to the flexible hose because of leakage and hence insufficient water going through the shower rose. 4. The pneumatic lift was not calibarated correctly. There was a 60 mm step from the floor of the lift to the landing on the top floor.

    Fabulous

    The private hot tub was good as was the larger pool. Location was perfect on corner of 2 major roads.

    TV in the second bedroom didn't work. Shame about the noisy guests at midnight.

    The owner(?) or lady at reception was extremely friendly and honest. When I asked about the thermal pool she replied they were usable but apologised about the tiles and explained they were getting them upgraded soon. So I knew exactly what I was getting. She was very helpful about any enquires and her manner made us felt welcome and even though the room was not flash we would still stay there again.

    Thermal pools definately need upgrading and a better spring on the gate so it self closes. If not shut properly I would worry about children getting in and falling in extremely hot water.
