We stayed here as part of the Tour of NZ bike race so no idea what the nightly cost was. Despite Cyclone Debbie dumping 75mm rain on us overnight we did get some glimpses of a great view from the room. Our room was closest to reception (12) and as such was quite noisy. We could hear reception and with...

Located off the highway and good clean rooms. I had to stop there overnight and leave early in the morning so it was a quick trip. Rooms had microwave as well as usual tea facilities although not required. Only thing was the room was up a fairly steep staircase which had to be negotiated in the dark on arrival and...

Clean, tidy and comfortable, but very small without cooling and definitely not disabilty friendly! Built on the side of a hill. Parking at unit is not flat and I found it extremely difficult to get in and out of the car. To be fair there is level parking in front of reception, but then you are challenged by the steps...

We stayed at the Panorama when passing through last week. There was a bit of an issue checking in but we got it sorted. Staff are friendly but seemed a little clueless. The rooms are clean and tidy but still have those awful old style bedspreads that went out in the 80's. The walls are paper thin, so we had...

It was more for lack of options that we had to stay here as we pretty much booked a few hours beforehand due to change of plans and no other accomodation being available close to Waitomo Caves. AVOID AT ALL COSTS!! I cannot believe we paid the same amount here as where we stayed in Hamilton which was modern and...

This motel has truly outstanding views and the staff are lovely, it's just a shame it's looking tired and in need of some TLC. Given the price of a studio unit It would have been helpful to have some toiletries in the bathroom. There was a microwave and kettle but we had to clean crockery in the basin in the...

Thank you for your review, we appreciate both positive and constructive feedback. Sorry you did not have toiletries in the bathroom, as this is a standard and should have been in the room :( On check in we advised all customers to ring the office if we can help with anything, so we would have popped up with them if...

We stayed here for two nights whilst visiting new zealand. There were some real positives but some real negatives also. Carol on reception was lovely, so friendly and helpful. We ate dinner one evening and the food was better than expected although the dining room is like an old 70s diner and in desperate need of some tlc. The views...

This motel is basic and clean. We were greeted with friendly hospitality. What it offers and true to the name is a million dollar view through the large full length windows. The family room we booked was very spacious and nice layout. Unfortunately the bathroom was very cold but nothing we can't deal with. Another downside was the noise from...
