Good value and quiet room

Clean, quiet, close to Te Puia
Stay was fine, the room was clean and quiet, less than five minute drive to Te Puia attraction. Giant spa tub was nice after a long day in the car. Would stay again without hesitation.

Nice motel near city centre

close to city centre, nice service by the keeper, spacious room
We were checking in very late in the evening when the reception was closed hours before. Yet, the motel keeper was very nice and patience to help us to check even waking up by us in the late evening. Appreciated that!

Old and tired

Location was only good thing
We did not know prior to checking in that the front desk was only open in business hours so were relieved we arrived in time to collect our key. With no air con the fan had to be turned off when sleeping as noisy. The room was non smoking however it was very old and the decor very 1970's. We would not stay there again.

No frills

Location, spa style bath, parking
A no frills stay. Motel was reasonably close to city centre with easy access to food and entertainment. Spa style bath was a nice added touch to otherwise basic accommodation.

good location and free wif without any limit!

good location and free wifi without any limit!
A lot of motel in New Zealand did say to provide FREE WIFI but it gave a lot of restriction: size and no. of device connected whereas New Castle motor lodge did not and it helped me a lot to do my work while I was on Holiday.
