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.

What a delight! We had such a restful night in this very tastefully appointed motel. Simple, very clean and just what we were seeking after a weary day on the road travelling. Thank you Robyn and Paul

We stayed in a good sized clean family unit for one-night in the busy holiday period - the owners' were away and the caretakers very friendly and helpful - when owners returned they realised that we were double charged (online and in then in person) and promptly refunded the money - very honest! The motel is easy to find and... More

More than adequate motel facilities in a clean family room environment. Being close to the motorway did not make for a restful night though. The receptionist was friendly and helpful. Was a good stay overall.

As Sara R stated a particularly noisy motel being right on the main drag and the by-pass directly across the road.Hard to hide from it.The room I had wasn't the cleanest but the bed was comfortable.Very handy to the town centre is a plus.

This motel is right on the State Highway, where the trucks change down in gear as they enter the town. It was horrendously noisy all night, even with all the windows shut as tight as the broken latches allowed. Of course that made the room stinking hot and there is no air-con. It was far too expensive for a tired... More
