10,0 Excellent
Pros: The manager on duty when we arrived (Chris?) could not be more helpful, he provided us with milk, walked us to the door of our room, had a travel cot already set up for my little one and even came back with another duvet for us to use to pad it out for him. We also saw him at the rugby game we attended that evening and he spent time talking to my husband the following morning regarding it. I asked when checkout was and was told "it's 10am but we won't be over that way till about 12 so take your time there's no rush". You wouldn't get that response in a hotel! The room was perfect for our one night stay, had all appliances you would need and right on the beachfront too. Highly recommend this motel.

9,6 Excellent
Pros: Great comfy beds, lovely spa bath, heater worked well and fantastic location.
Cons: One of the children's beds was right by a window, just a bit worried about a small child opening it and climbing out.

Pros: We stayed in the Presidential Suite and were impressed with the quality of the whole unit. The bedding, furniture and all within far exceeded our expectations. Had a beautiful private garden outside our ranch slider. The owners were super friendly and accommodating to our needs. Parking outside the unit is a plus. Location was just a spit from the town squares. All walkable in a few minutes.

7,0 Good
Pros: Breakfast was good quality and good value. Room was comfortable, bed was lovely, cleanliness standards were high. Complimentary robes were a lovely touch and access to a balcony was a nice extra! Kitchenette was well equipped and tea/coffee/real milk were provided.
Cons: Dinner in the hotel restaurant was good, but on the expensive side. Some menu options had run out when we arrived at 7.30pm. I booked the room for our anniversary and was intending to enjoy a spa bath, but the bath was tiny and I couldn't get the bubbles mechanism to work. No instructions provided in the room for how to activate it and didn't really want to call someone up from reception when I was already in the bath! No lift, had to carry heavy case to upper floor. Request a ground floor if you aren't fit enough to carry your luggage upstairs!

10,0 Excellent
Pros: We have both travelled extensively around NZ and the world and found Trailways to be the best hotel we have ever stayed in. The staff were attentive and extremely helpful, the room was clean with a very comfortable bed. The parking area had a couple of disability parks which we found to be so helpful for us.
Cons: Nothing. There wasn't anything we could find fault with. Maybe next time we will request a ground floor room as the stairs proved to be a challenge.

5,4 Okay
Cons: It was my second time to stay there, I quite liked it when I first visit it that's why I came back. But this time was so frustrating. Someone stole and use my food, tearing a name tag, chucking them into another fridge. It never happened to me at any other hostels before. I went to the reception but the staff just said I don't know. The next day someone, I don't know if it was the same one, again threw my can away. It was not practically Yha's fault but I just decided I will never come back again to encounter these nasty people in the hostel.
