Value for Money”

Price and location.

We stayed at the Avalon Motel while on a weekend break to visit Miranda Hot Springs, the Karangahake Gorge and blueberry farms. The location of the motel was good. The motel itself is a little dated, but the owners have taken care to ensure everything is working and the rooms are in a fairly good condition. I'd say good value for money.

old hotel that needs a facelift”

comfortable bed, high-speed internet, in-between Auckland and Coromandel attractions

It's an old hotel that needs a facelift. We had good and bad experience. It was generally ok but had ants and spider. Room was spacious, linens were clean, had very comfortable bed, and acess to internet was not a problem. Was given stale milk on second day but they apologised. Location is 1.5 hrs away to Cathedral Cove and Hot Water Beach -- not good base for these attractions. I was misled by their website description. Should have booked in Whitianga, Hahei or somewhere closer.

Spacious and clean. Nice host. Comfortable bed

Felt very comfortable and had a homelike feel as the room is well designed, clean and very spacious. The bed is great and come with a electric heater which is extremely useful as spring has just started. Almost wanted to spend the whole day in the room!!!! There are fast food and supermarket nearby but main attractions like hot water beach is quite a distance away. The host is very nice and a good man. Overall it was a great stay and value for money esp if you dun mind travelling longer.

Although Thames probably won't be a highlight of too many NZ trips, it is fine as a stop over and there are plenty of eating and drinking options on the main stretch. The hotel itself was fine - nothing to get too excited over either positive or negative.
