    Exceptional

    The staff was really friendly and helpful. We were recommended good places to visit and have diner. The rooms are big, clean, cosy and confortable. We were willing to stay more in this place

    Nothing, great value for money

    There was absolutely nothing to like about this motel except that the lady at the front desk (daughter of the owner) was very friendly.

    This is the scariest motel we have ever been to. It is set high up on a hill amongst what appears to be a "dumping ground". This is the dirtiest and most run-down motel we have ever seen, and the rate they are requesting is absolutely outrageous for what you are getting. You couldn't pay us $100 to stay there. In fact, we took the loss of our pre-payment/deposit just to get out. Yes, it was that bad. Would not recommend that anybody stay there; not even backpackers. We ended up staying at the Coves Motor Inn which was like a "day/night comparison" for the extra $20. We cannot believe some of the "positive" reviews we read on this motel. It cannot possibly be the same place. Very misleading.

    Fabulous

    The owner was very knowledable about the area and provided several hands on advices where to go to have the best time. He is one of the best hosts I have met during my travel. I would absolutely recommend this place to solo travellers as well as to couples.

    Fabulous

    The proprietor was very helpful and friendly. We didn't have towels for the caves the next day and he let us borrow some and bring them back after we had checked out. We had the family room (because it's all that was left) so we had lots of room and enjoyed just hanging out the night before our adventure in Waitomo.

    It was old and basic but that's all there is in that area. Don't expect the Sheraton.
