An overall great experience in the studio spa unit for myself. The room was very clean, warm and cosy, and the spa bath was nice, water was hot but took a few minutes to come through but that wasnt really a problem. The bed was comfortable and was good to be able to watch t.v from the bed. Only thing that got to me was the traffic noise from ricarton road as this room is close to the road, and was a bit hard to fall asleep the first night, however it wasnt as busy on the second night during the weekend. and also some of the young people out were quite loud, but there isnt really much you can do about that if you want to stay on riccarton road!. Overall good location to supermarkets and the mall. Room was not big but not small, and probably would be best just for a single person needing to do business while wanting the luxury of the spa bath, not sure if id recomend it to a couple wanting a special getaway.
Would of liked some hot chocolate sachets, and felt an extra charge for internet was a bit of a put off, considering most of the motels in the area offer this included in the price.
Another thing, was the bedlamps, the bulbs had blown in them. Nice large mirror though, and the hairdryer in the bathroom was superb for an in built one, as i have long hair and usually they arent powerful enough so i bring my own but i didnt need to use it at all. Was good to have an extra fan heater in the room also, alongside the oil heater :)
