    Room was clean and well presented. However, our room was by laundry and was a bit noisey. People also congregated in this area to smoke and the fumes came into our room.

  • 4.0.Fair

    Staff tried to charge me double the Wotif rate - $380 per night instead of $380 for 2 nights - and didnt back down until l fired up my computer to show them, even then no apology. Very rudimentary service of the room on the middle day. Reception only open short hours, from 9am. Property no doubt very nice in its time.

  • 2.0.Poor

    This is the worst and most expensive motel I've ever stayed at. The customer service was terrible, from the moment I arrived and wasn't even shown how to get to my room. It got worse. The apartment itself smelled of fat. There were dirty and ripped net curtains. There was grime on the walls. There was no power point in the kitchen, so I had to boil the water on the floor. The toilet seat was broken so it kept slipping to the side. The shower head was broken and had to be screwed up in place. Then, on my second morning there, the mixer in the shower broke and during my shower it went completely cold. It took the people in charge several hours before they phoned the plumber. When he came, he took the mixer away altogether, leaving no ability to have a hot shower, only a bath. After the plumber left, the water ran brown for 1.5 days. After we complained several times, the people in charge offered us our final two days in one of their other motels, but we refused because that one had got a lower overall rating than the one we were in, so we didn't want to risk getting a worse deal than we already had. They made no effort to refund us. Do NOT book to stay here. These people have no idea how to run a motel or how to have good customer service. We have told everyone we know how bad it was.

    Business trip and stayed 4 nights, office only open 9 am to 5pm so everything was done by email. Shame the restaurant isnt open any more. The room and bathroom are dated and could do with a re fit. A 3 star

  • 4.0.Fair

    Room was clean enough at first, except for mould in the usual places around the bathroom shower and floor edges. No room servicing at all during a four night stay. Noisy every night at the complex until 12 or 1am with thin walls. Mattress was well worn and sagged in the middle. Lock on room door was very flimsy.

    The motel has just changed ownership so it would not e fair to make any significant judgement at this point. However, the room was clean and well priced. The kitchenette could be better equipped, but that will probably come with the new ownership. The location is quiet and just a short drive from the business center of Lower Hutt. I can recommend this as a good place to stay.
