Dirty nappy and rubbish left in the bin. Bathroom floor wet and sticky. Ran out of toliet paper. Ran out of hot water after 2x three minute showers. Unit was for a family of 5. Oven didn't work. No microwave safe dishes. Bathroom filthy. Floors filthy. Noisy from unit next door. Crockery dirty. Towels/tea towel did not smell clean. PowerPoint in the bathroom did not work. So nowhere in bathroom to use hairdryer. Over all would rather stay in backpackers accommodation.

Close to where we needed to be. Have stayed here in the past and found it to be very good. Was able to park the car here during our day trip to Kapiti island. Thanks to the staff member attending, very helpful.

Good location and easy to find. Plenty of parking off street. Quiet rooms which were well maintained. Friendly and helpful staff as we arrived late. Nothing too much trouble.
