6/10 Good

Easy access to shop etc. Cleanliness of the room was ok but windows need attention inside and out. I understand that there is gravel outside but inside needs cleaned. The kitchen tap leaks and did last time we stayed in that room a year or so ago.

Tuatapere Motel
The backpackers in Tuatapere was about the WORST we have stayed in this trip. They charged me the same price as a nice motel but had NO amenities whatsoever, not even TOWELS! If we wanted a towel they charged an extra $5! Single toilet for 8 upstairs rooms and tiny sink that only had a thin stream of water and light not working! No REFRIGERATOR, only a freezer! For the price they charged it was OUTRAGEOUS. DO NOT stay there unless desperate.
