Awesome location, very handy, friendly staff. Toilet had come away from the wall, with mould behind the cistern, there was a stain on the sheet under the pillow, the unit didn’t have a sink or washing liquid to do dishes

Everything we needed. Spacious queen bedroom with plenty of hanging space. Everything needed in the bathroom including toothbrushes and paste and slippers. Hairdryer in bathroom cupboard. Could do with somewhere to put things down in the bathroom or a hook. Living room had two single beds with good duvet bedding. Only one single bed had a bed light above it. Plenty of towels. Dining table with 4 comfy chairs. Good Sky TV and a radio/cd player. Only one armchair but there is room for a sofa or a second armchair. A small side table to save putting a coffee mug on the carpet would be useful. Ironing board plus iron (which we didn’t use!) available. Good small fridge, microwave, electric jug, crockery and cutlery, plunger pot and toaster. Tea/coffee/sugar sachets and fresh milk. This unit didn’t have a ‘kitchen’ so had to use the bathroom basin for water and washing up. Ordered a good continental breakfast the previous evening. Cooked breakfast also available. No aircon but a portable fan and a fixed wall heater in the living room. Clean carpet. For cricket fans, the motel is right across the road from the Basin Reserve ... very handy. Wellington Hospital is a short drive up Adelaide Road. Supermarket and other shops in that area too. We were more than happy with our stay. Would stay again.
