Our second time there and they have new owners. It's as good as ever and the service is fantastic. Nothing was too much trouble and this is the perfect location if you're going to the Mills Reef Concert! Very clean units, quiet and comfortable.

We attended a wedding at Mills Reef Winery on Friday. The Bethlehem Motor Inn were so accommodating, allowing us to check in a little early. Our room was very comfortable with everything we needed. I would definitely recommend to others!

This is a great motel very close to Mills Reef Winery. We went to a wedding at the winery and could have walked but we chose to drive. The hosts were friendly and helpful . I originally tried to book a studio apartment and they phoned to inform me that they only had one bedrooms left. I booked on line... More

A group of us travelled from Auckland to attend a concert at Mills Reef Winery and this motel was the closest at 50m away from the venue. Our stay was comfortable and the units were spotless and definitely affordable. Would definitely stay here again.

We arrived to a friendly reception and found our unit to be very clean and well presented. We were in town for an event but were forced to comply with their "two nights" policy when booking. We were not happy about that at all as not all of our group could make it for the two nights. No flexibility regarding... More

Thank you for your feedback Stuart. We appreciate all constructive comments to improve where ever possible. The two night stay requirement is a common practice used by hotels and motels in high season over public holidays. I do apologise that this was not to your liking but we do hope you enjoyed the rest of your stay with us. Warm... More

Many motels are reluctant for school sports teams to stay, however Martin and Jacqui recently welcomed the school hockey team I manage. They sorted suitable rooms to accommodate the team and management.
