Taihape is ideally placed for travellers between wellington and the north. We made this choice and enjoyed a friendly welcome. The room is a reasonable size and has separate bathroom. The motel is fairly close to the road and there is road noise from trucks. I noticed, my wife didn't Very good value for a one night stop.

We arrived in Wellington late due to a ferry delay. We drove North and Taihape seemed to be the right place to stay (about a 3 hour drive). Graham was very pleasant when we arrived. The accommodation had a separate bedroom with a queen and twin, and there was another single in the front room. We also had a small... More

While on my way up north I found the coachman motel. Very relaxing and quiet inside the room. Rooms are clean and welcoming. Arrived late at night and owner was accommodating. Bed was very comfortable. I would stay here again without hesitation.

What a lovely experience the Coachman was, such lovely helpful people and much to our amazement our very dirty car windscreen... More

Excellent service received from the couple at the coachman. They were very helpful and accomodating. The room was very nice and comfortable and they even had the heater going for our arrival. I would definitely recommend this as a great place to stay. Ps. Thanks for cleaning the ice off the ute before we left.

Very clean. Everything we needed after a long drive. We enjoyed the recommended nearby walk. A great place to stop over in. Bed was very comfy and host friendly and helpful. No need to detour from the main highway. We cooked for ourselves but looked to be plenty of eating out options close by.
