Very handy location with Pak'nSave across the road and walking distance to town. Owners very helpful and accommodating with our large group, with free pick up service from the bus station. Units were clean and tidy with full size oven plus microwave.

As it says in the name, really close to the town centre, a three minute walk, and a Pak'nSave over the road, so ultra convenient. It has been there for a long time, so not brand new but has stood the test of time pretty well! Friendly reception was taken to new heights in sending on a left-behind jacket and...

This was my 2nd stay here. I wrote a review for another place recently that is usually my go-to for a room with a view. City Close is now going to be my usual go-to for a good value budget-ish central motel. Can't give it 5 out of 5 though. No aircon (wouldn't expect it in a cheaper place anyway...

Very clean and friendly hotel. Very dated, but in a nostalgic way The Kitchen and the bathroom has a very 1950s feel to them and the kitchen was well supplied with an authentic 1970s range. The bed and furniture was more current and the atmosphere nice. There were a few minuses. One being that I suspect this place has either...

Spent a night in this motel on a toad trip from Auckland to Wellington. It is not that easy finding dog friendly accommodation in NZ and this was one we found online. The motel is not the most modern one but it is spotless clean, the rooms are quite spacious and the owner very friendly. There is free wifi and...

We stayed for one night at City Close motel and were happy with our stay. We'd give it 3 and half stars if we could. Good location. Close to shops, beach front and supermarket. Friendly staff and the unit itself was very clean. Bedding, curtains and carpet have all been recently upgraded and are very nice. Bed was comfy. Kitchenette...

At first I was skeptical of the motels because of the movies, but the couple that manage this motel was very friendly, the room very clean and neat, although the motel it is like a 70's motel is very neat and does not look old nor bad conditions, great stay. I was a bit worried because there are glass doors...

The best thing going for this motel is its closeness to the city centre, supermarkets, restaurants and shopping. Very dated decor. Old fashioned in every way. I was in unit 8 up flight of steep stairs, dangerous for kids or elderly. Milk was provided in open top uncovered jug. Room was very warm, no air conditioning. Cicadas in near trees...

Well it's not the flashiest accommodation - the fridge is a little loud and it can be stinking hot the staff were friendly and helpful! The room had great kitchen facilities which meant we could cook breakfast rather than dine out, but it was super close so we could walk to local restaurants and bars if we wanted. Close to...
