The Rolleston is a quiet motel situated in a peaceful street. The rooms are large with extremely comfy beds. We had a good table and a sofa. The kitchen was excellent, well placed in an alcove. The shower was good though it good have done with more hot water pressure. We had an excellent patio from which we could view... More

We loved it here! The people who own the place are really friendly and work very hard to make everything perfect. The room was very clean and quiet and they even offer the best priced room service breakfast in New Zealand - $10 for a cooked breakfast delivered piping hot to your room. You cannot beat that!

We enjoyed 2 nights at the Rolleston motel as we walked "The Pinnacles" on one of the days. The service was friendly and the motel clean. We asked about using the bbque and were able to use it free of charge. The helpful owners gave us information about the area. There is a spa and swimming pool to use, particularly... More

We stayed for 3 nights in a Studio with a comfortable King size bed. Hosts were very pleasant and helpful and everything was nice and clean. No noise from the main road as it is set quite a way back - unlike the other properties you see as you drive into Thames. That said it is only a 2 minute... More

Stayed here for 2 nights in Thames. On arrival we were given lots of useful information about what was available locally in the way of things to see and do, and where we could eat. The motel is an older property in a quiet cul de sac not far from the main street of Thames. A short walk gets you... More
