1/5 Terrible

Travelled with family
Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
The room was a cabin, lean too. Not what I would expect from a motel in Wanaka. When the owner saw I had booked through Expedia, he said ‘Nasty’ which I thought was a bit unprofessional.

2/5 Poor

I think this is possibly the worst motel I have ever stayed at! The young woman who greeted us on reception was friendly and that was about the best thing about this place. She asked us if we wanted to swap our room as it had a sloping ceiling so we 'upgraded' to a double room. However as it was a very cold and overcast day, the room was freezing cold, very dark and inadequate heating. The rooms are very tired and old fashioned with no redeeming features. The kitchen was very basic, and not that clean. The bathroom was an icebox and the shower a real danger as it is raised and has a raised lip on the shower tray which I grazed my toe on. The whole place was very dingy and dirty and we couldn't wait to leave the next morning. We left as soon as we woke up, it was too cold to have a shower and so we just got up and left. It doesn't even have a great location so there are no redeeming features and so many other better places to stay in Wanaka.
