We were very happy when we opened the door to our studio. The room was clean and the bed was comfy, the in-room spa and air con were just superb. The only thing to point out, which is just being picky really, we had read that there was complimentary internet access. Nothing about this was mentioned on checkin and as... More

This motel was really well situated near shops and cafes. The rooms were spotless and the spa was an added bonus after a long day cycling. Very comfortable beds, free wifi and obliging staff. Great place.

Although there are plenty of motels to choose from in this small village, I always return to Village Motel for the great customer service, and its simple, practical and tidy rooms. Rooms have a large spa bath in addition to an ensuite with shower. Rooms at this motel have all the basic amenities you need, including air conditioning/heat pump, and... More

Situated next to the little town, it is a stroll to bars cafes and restaurants. The units upstairs have large tinted window which gives a nice outlook from the room without people being able to see in. The rooms are spacious with the added bonus of a spa. It was spotless clean throughout. The beds comfy. The staff helpful. I... More

Having stayed several times previously and not done a review .... We often stay here and only stay elsewhere when unavailable. We like the upstairs units as the very large patio's are lovely in addition to the rooms. Whilst not private each room does have table and chairs, Nice for a quite wine in the evening after a nice dinner... More

We stopped here after a very long working day. Nice big modern room, very clean, lots of easy parking and at a reasonable rate. Central location. Friendly and helpful hosts. Perfect for what we needed.

We had a 2 night stay in a room with a spa bath. The balcony is shared & not private. The room was large & spotless. Tony very kindly rang me to inform me that I had left some clothes in the wardrobe. The rooms are serviced daily. The air con was a blessing. A very nice motel with easy... More

The large studio room. Well appointed room with extra large king bed (very comfortable). Our was by a main road but quiet enough for a good nights sleep. Little pricey going on the room (one bedroom ) we stayed in at Hastings a couple of nights later .

We recently had Christmas with family in Havelock North so wanted to stay somewhere central and comfortable with everything we needed. The Village has very friendly staff who know all about the eateries in the area. The rooms are large with every possible amenity, including huge comfortable bed ( I'm pretty fussy and I loved the bed), a fab spa... More
