Overpriced $125 for a studio unit 3.3m x 7.0 mtrs But the hand basin toilet and shower was in an area 1,1 x 2.1 mtrs .I am pleased I don't have a weight problem. Not a good stop NOT again. The Man who signed me in should take a course at Kiwi Host Milton

While this motel is just off the main highway in Otaki noise from the busy road traffic is very moderate. The units are spacious modern with heat pumps including a full kitchen. The bathroom was well equipped with a large shower and good water pressure. The bedroom well furnished with a very comfortable bed. Parking is adjacent to the units... More

The staff and owners treated us with kind manners, appreciation and they would make sure everything was in order, haven't been treated like that for along time at... More

I'd stayed there perhaps 10 years ago, and stayed again as it still seems about the only appropriate accommodation in Otaki. It has definitely been refurbished - the Cottage was, as other reviewers had said, clean, dry, very spacious, and the refurbishment has obviously made the best of older structures - the decor, carpet, and facilities (shower, sink, tv, hob,...

On arrival, was very warmly greeted by John, who also took the time to be very informative regards local resources (places to eat, shopping etc). John made us feel very welcome, and took the time to also accompany us to the unit (cottage), to explain its outlay and utilities. Cottage itself was quite large and very well furnished, and had...

We spent two nights here recently and were very impressed with the clean, cosy, comfortable accommodation. One of the owners was also very helpful and went out of his way to accommodate us. We'd recommend this venue to singles, couples and families. Also very reasonably priced. Hellen and Dave Johnston

A family funeral led us to book a unit at Cottage Park for three nights. The motel is conveniently located yet we were lucky to get the back unit meaning road noise from the highway was kept to a minimum. The unit was the cleanest I have seen in a motel for a long time. The beds were comfortable and... More

Some reviews here are due to "sacked" managers, look at the more recent reports. We found this place very pleasant, clean, good facilities and nice host. One little thing (because it was the deciding factor to choose this place) is the heated pool was not heated. When we were looking at places we were happy to pay more for this... More

We booked 8 units for a family wedding and were very delighted to find the Units comfortable, clean and convenient. The owner was most helpful and we thought Cottage Park to be excellent value. Really appreciated the use of the big kitchen for catering for us all.
