Spent 2 nights here, on our way to Ski fields and back to the lower north island. We will be out most of the day so would only need a place to have a restful sleep and don't want to spend too much for an accommodation. This place did not let us down. It is neat, tidy and clean, and... More

We stayed at this motel on our way down to the South Island. The friends we were with have always stayed here and had told us a lot about the lovely owner. Upon arrival we were greeted with beer and chips and a lot of lively chatter. The owner has run this Motel for a number of years which is... More

Whilst driving to Wellington our car broke down and we needed a place to stay. Was recommended this place by the mechanic. Wasn't expecting much, But was blown away at the how friendly the owners were. Offered the legendary beer and crisps when we arrived. exceedingly comfortable rooms. A real steal for the price. altho I have no future plans... More

Have recently spent 2 nights at Taihape Motel one on way north & one on the way back. Clean, tidy, beautiful roses everywhere. Mine host was great. Nothing too much bother. Very reasonably priced. Puts a lot of more expensive Motels to shame. Two comfy armchairs, just great. Would recommend to anyone. Very comfy king bed.. Thanks Heather & Nev... More

We are three singles travelling through New Zealand and booking most of our accommodation a couple of nights ahead through internet research. We lucked out every night, but were doubtful about Taihape when people we were chatting with on the ferry from Picton to Wellington questioned our reasons for staying there. To us it was just a place to spend... More

We stayed overnight on New Years Eve 2013-14 on our way to Wellington. It was the perfect spot to break up our trip. Very friendly hosts, great range of complimentary DVD's to watch, clean and tidy unit despite the original older decor. Pleasantly surprised that the children's beds could be closed off from the rest of the unit - great... More

Maybe not the most modern motel you'll ever stay in but certainly the best welcome you'll find anywhere. After a long day in the motorcycle saddle we were greeted with beer and chips and the fridge was stocked for breakfast. The location is handy for town and the rooms are clean and comfortable. A choice of secure parking was provided... More

Turning up late at night in pouring rain we were greeted with a room already warm with the heater on, and the owner offered me a cold beer to relax after a long drive. The fridge was also stocked with food for breakfast. The motel seems to be a bit older and our room had a bit of a 70s... More

Our motel unit was clean and tidy. It had a well equipped kitchenette. The owners were very friendly. We were greeted with a cold beer and crisps. There was free wifi. We even got a gold card discount! A good place to stay overnight while travelling to or from Wellington.
