Positive Reviews

Nice quiet location

This motel offers peace and quiet. Guests mention how happy they are about the quiet atmosphere they experience while staying here. The hotel is located right off of Main Street, although one reportedly cannot hear much traffic noise at all.

Great customer service

Reviews indicate that the staff at this hotel is extremely friendly and caring. They offer guests a warm welcome and make them feel well taken care of during their stay here.

Spa and pool is relaxing

The pool and spa facilities at this motel are said to be fantastic. Guests are very happy with the fact that they can rejuvenate and relax in the place where they are staying instead of having to leave the premises.

Negative Reviews

A sulphur odour

Many negative reviews point out that the local area doesn't smell the best. There is the Geothermal Valley Te Puia nearby and the sulphur odour lingers in the hotel rooms, making it a bit uncomfortable and stuffy.

Basic rooms

Guests feel as though the rooms are very basic and do not offer all that much. They feel as though there should be more amenities included in the price of the stay.

Beds are hard

According to guests, the beds at this motel are very firm. It can be quite uncomfortable for those that like a soft pillow-top type of mattress.
