Comfortable. But nobody available at check in time. Notice saying back in 5 minutes. 20 minutes later I rang. No reply. Rang again and got someone who said they would be there in 2 minutes. 10 minutes later they arrived.

Good morning, thanks for your review! We are happy you enjoyed your stay. And I would like to apologize you had to wait to check in! It was not a normal situation. I was abroad for 1 week. My wife was alone to manage the motel, and our 9 months old baby became sick. My wife didn't knew what to do first. We hope to see you again. Kind Regards,

Thank you very much for your review. We are happy you enjoyed your stay. Concerning the beds: they are standard motel bed frames and legs with good quality mattresses on top. It's the first time we get a remark about the height. I was not aware it could be an issue for guests with a back problem. I will check if we may install higher legs on the beds in a few rooms. Please give me a call next time you come to Kapiti Coast and I will tell you the height of the bed. Kind Regards,
