8/10 Very good

We love staying at Champers because it is close to whānau and we love the big spa bath. However, it is getting more and more tired looking and worn out. Stained carpet and ripped chairs are not a good look.

The motel location and facilities were adequate for my needs on a short business trip. But the owners were the most helpful and accommodating hosts I have encountered in my North Island travels, EVER! Many thanks.
