We stayed for several nights and we found things lacking. The room where we were was so close to the main road that it was very noisy at night. We could hardly have a good night sleep. The wi-fi was weak in the room and we had to go out to check for emails. Room looked tired, a curtain railing... More

Had an upstairs room and did not notice any traffic noise. Clean and with cheerful furnishings in good condition. Had a studio unit and were able to eat a salad in the room the night we arrived but these units don't have a kitchenette so prepare to eat out (recommendations offered by Reception).

Have stayed here a couple of times, the last time was in November last year. Stayed in a large room upstairs (can't remember the number) Huge lounge and kitchen area, huge bedroom. Pretty modern - nice bathroom. Would recommend. I'm a pretty heavy sleeper, but light sleepers might get woken up by the trucks going past in the mornings (a... More

Needed a room and they only had a family unit; that was fine. Very neat and tidy, great service from the stand-in manager. Internet access didn't work though, not too worried as could tether my own phone and did.Only concern was not enough tea and coffee - enough for two cups, but otherwise very happy with stay.

We were on our way back to Auckland from Opunake after coming from Wellington, - needless to say we were very tired and looking for a decent night's sleep. We were greeted with a lovely couple who made us felt right at home, after a nice chat, the only room they had left was the (the family room) for the... More

A call to the motel to book the accessible room went well to start with. The room was available, the tariff was ok but then I advised the owner I had a Mobility Service Dog. That was the end of the booking process as he advised that he would not allow dogs. Fair enough I said, but this is a... More

Clean but plain motel. Friendly staff. No A/C just a fan. Located right next to highway very noisy at night as must have windows open as no air conditioning. Ok for on overnight stop but there are better places in the area.

As other reviewers have mentioned, this motel is close to both the main highway & rail lines but we did not find this too intrusive. The motel is very clean & our family room had all that we needed - toaster, tea making, fridge, toiletries etc. Owners Paul & Robyn were most obliging in finding space in their freezer for... More

We were stranded in Otorohanga as we blew 2 tyres and our electics on our vehicle after going over a unmarked pothole. The office @ Palm Court was closed but the ownwers still came to the door when the bell was rung. Awesome owners who were very friendly and helpful in every way. Very clean facilities. An awesome stay.
