I was a bit skeptic before booking because of the claims of the 1 star reviews. I was pretty struck to see that the motel is actually very comfortable, the room is big and with everything you need, including a fully equipped kitchenette (microwave and stove as well), big TV, a quite big bathroom and a desk. It's true it's... More

Having read the 1* reviews, we came properly prepared with body armour for the cat and motion-sensor lights to keep the burglars at bay. Thankfully the cat was away (probably at anger management classes) and while we covered the TV in blankets to avoid shrapnel wounds, in the event, it didn't even explode. We can report a rather savage-looking Bichon... More

I had searched for accommodation for our last night in New Zealand and found Shortland Court Motel online. I booked it without much research and we were very happy with everything. The motel is very clean and comfortable and the King size bed was the most comfortable we had slept in. The bathroom was large with a magnificent shower and... More

We had left booking until the last minute and this was the only hotel left where we could get a room big enough for 4 of us. It was a very good size room, with two bedrooms - the kids room was curtained off rather than a separate room but that was ok. We were only staying for one night... More

While Shortland Court was clean and tidy, I have to admit we have stayed in Motels half the price that are better appointed. One thing that really irritates me is mismatched crockery and cutlery in units. Not the most comfortable bed, although our son says his one was very comfortable. Shower was fantastic and they did not skimp on tea... More

We arrived late to Thames (around 8.00pm) and after driving around the town thought this motel looked the better of the accommodation offered. The room while large was not 'lovely' as described by reception. The room was dated, close to the road and generally not inviting at all. From what we observed at other properties in the same price bracket... More

The room and facilities were fine though there was an ant infestation which meant the kitchen bench, and anything left on it for more than 10 minutes, soon attracted the little pests. No oven in the unit I had, just a hob and microwave. The road noise was noticeable both late night and early morning. Friendly host.

We stayed here to visit the Coromandel ( which was wonderful.) There were 3 couples in 3 rooms & everyone felt their rooms were clean & comfy. We walked the short distance to town for dinner though there was a small kitchenette in the room. They also had a very friendly kitty who came to visit us. The price was... More

We had a pleasant stay with our grand daughter. Motel was very clean. It is very close to the town where we strolled along for dinner. I think the unit we had was charged at the right price. I also am very surprised at some of the guests comments. Fortunately, I had not read the comments before heading to Thames.... More

Stayed in the studio unit. The unit was very comfortable and the motel host very friendly and helpful. Bed and shower were really good. Conveniently located and only a short walk into town. I think that the unit was good value for money and I am a little surprised by some of the previous guest comments. I recommend this motel.
