When we first drove up to the place my friend gave me a look that clearly said, This is where were staying?? From the outside it looks like nothing - I guess like your typical, old, middle of nowhere roadside motel. But inside, the rooms are very nice, with recently renovated bathrooms, new kitchen appliances, and comfortable beds. It was... More

We needed somewhere to stay for one night on our way from Wellington to Auckland and the Birchlands Motel was the spot we chose. It was clean, the bed was comfortable and although it was within walking distance of shops and restaurants, it was far enough away to ensure it was quiet at night. Fortunately the guests on either side... More

We stayed for two nights on Christmas and we had wonderful time. The kitchen is well equipped, the filtered water was perfect after a long day out in the sun and the motel is conveniently located, only a couple of minutes walk to the lakefront and town centre.

Amazing attention to detail for a motel. All ammenities excellent: beds, kitchen, bathroom, internet, water. The services was very friendly. The first load of laundry is even free. The only annoying thing was a sllightly noisy fridge.

We enjoyed our recent stay at the Birchlands Motel in two one-bedroom units. Pluses: close to lake, town and shopping; quiet; free wifi; comfortable couch and beds; very well-equipped kitchen, with also some condiments; filtered water; good selection of teas / coffee (even camomile tea!) and they give you the cutest little milk bottles. MInus: no dinner table to sit... More

It's a nice motel that everything you need is well prepared. Apparently the owner cares a lot so used nice staff in the room. Good taste decoration and the back yard garden is especially adorable! We stayed 2 nights, will come back again!

We arrived at Birchlands Motel having booked a 1 bed apt for 5 nights. On arrival we were given a studio which of course was not our choice, however Ailyn the manager asked if we would stay in the studio with a price reduction and she would open the bedroom and reconfigurate the lounge. We stayed in the studio that... More

Enjoyed our stay a lot. Great accommodation - heat pump kept the unit lovely and warm, really good value for money. Very Pet friendly, took my small dog with me - nice safe environment for him. Very quiet even though close to town.

Stayed in November and extended quite happily. Other reviews say it all. Good position, reasonable rates, most helpful and cheerful staff. Gave good advice on locality, shopping, services and deBretts baths.
