Very Good8.0
Very nice - but noisy!
We were here overnight prior to competing in the Kerikeri Half-marathon, the following morning. We were very happy with the service we received and everything was fine and fulfilled our expectations. Unfortunately, it is directly adjacent to a restaurant/bar which meant it was very loud and noisy with the usual drunken raucous noise and profanity till the early hours of the morning. This spoilt our stay somewhat but was not the motel owner's fault. However, in future we would not stay here when we really needed to sleep!
