My boyfriend and I stayed at the Cottage Park Motel with my elderly aunt and her partner in December this year. The staff were lovely: very friendly and accommodating. The kitchens and bathrooms spotless. We had a cabin unit while our aunt stayed in their motor home. Unfortunately we had really wet weather but we remained very cosy in our... More

We just had a single night stay here en route to the ferry. We found it to be quiet and clean and the management to be very friendly. Our unit had a cosy chalet feel to it and it was very nice to be in a detached unit and not hear the people next door. Even though it is situated... More

We had a very great stay with my family. The cottage was very well maintained, great insulation and heating. Excellent service from the staff! Will definitely stay here again and will definitely recommend to our friends and family.

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
