Scott H. Couples Australia, August 12, 2015
very quiet, clean and spacious. friendly staff.

location, bathroom, fee wifi
Really enjoyed. Location is peaceful and only 5 minutes from city. But we had hire car, so not good if you don't have transport. Lots car parking. Very clean. Free wifi. Microwave, heater, electric blankets, large bathroom and on south side rooms have views of Mount Wellington. We would definitely stay here again!! Only thing to be careful if you leave your room at night and go outside to your car, but leave the room key with your partner inside. Because you will be locked outside!! Luckily I did this when early. It easy to do because key has card that needs be in slot for power... :-D

poor location

helpful staff - recently renovated room - hot shower
Security at heritage cottage was poor and access in poor weather needs to be addressed. As the Lodge is without a restaurant,the location is too isolated from shops and restaurants if guest is without transport. It must be said,however,that the staff were very helpful.

Good for budget stays for one night

Bedding was very new and good quality. Plenty of heating if it's cold.
It's clean. But very old and a bit worn. Also out of town. Nothing near by. But for budget traveling it's fine.

Beautiful peaceful location generous room size

Generous Room size, located on the water, great value for money
I would highly recommend this Motel great value for money lovely waterside location away from the city but still close enough. Generous clean room size and very reasonably priced. Whilst my room stated it came without a view I still had a lovely garden outlook.
