    Being a motorcyclist the apartments have good undercover parking.

    Location was excellent- being able to walk to Salamanca and drive up to Mt. Wellington.

    No air conditioning- hot for sleeping staff at desk hard to understand

    Not enough parking, had to always park far away from the motel then walk there even with our heavy bags. There was no one at the motel reception when we went to cheque in, it took us 20 to 30 minutes before we got someone to get our key. I would not class this as a four star motel. My daughter had also booked in to this motel when she got there she was told that they had overbooked and had booked her into another motel.

    Good heating, having two single-sofa beds and with undercover parking are big tick for us and made our stay comfortable for a family of 4.

    The bathroom is mouldy.

    Good location. Close to shops and centre of town. Great views from the "appartment room"

    Room description was apartment style and sleep up to four people. We were expecting one double one single and a fold out couch. We only got one double and two fold out couches with a matress about 2cm thick so they were not very comfortable and when the couches were folded out you woul have no room. Good size for two people, we had three people and it was very squishy. Would not recommend it for four people

    The staff were friendly, the location was great & the room was well looked after. I would stay there again.

    The room faced east & was quite hot at times. There was no airconditioning or fan in the room. The bathroom was extremely bright in the morning, a blind on the window would have been good. Also the breakfasts were a little late each day.

    On arrival there was noone in reception, we waited for around 10 minutes and then finally had to phone them on our mobile. We then went to the room we were allocated only to find the toilet in a disgusting state with urine on the front of the seat and possibly more than that as the water in the bowl was dark brown. The toilet had obviously not been serviced so we immediately complained and asked for another room which we were given. The phone in the new room didn't appear to work as there was no dial tone when we tried to contact reception. We informed them of this but nothing appeared to have been done by the time we departed.

    Room is clean and heater light in the bathroom is great during cold season.

    Parking location is unclear and very difficult to find, especially at night. The gap below the room door was so large, we could feel the cold air flowing in!

    Blue Hills was cheap, close to centre of town, dated decor but spotless and helpful staff.
