We had a great experience following a minor hiccup with the booking, which Tony went out of his way to sort out at a very busy time in Cromwell. The motels were all full as a result of a national vintage motorbike rally, but he looked after us very well. There were six of us in our group and the... More

I took my parents through to Cromwell so we could catch up with my brother. Dad, at 89, is not very mobile, so we asked for a unit with good Accessability. We were give a unit on the ground floor, at the end of the block that made easy acces for Dads wheelchair. All very comfortable and convenient.

This was a great place to stay, the owners were so helpful and nothing was a problem to them. The rooms were of a high standard and extremely spacious. Can't wait to stay there again and see all the great staff that made my time in the south island so good. Thanks

We had a very pleasant, comfortable stay in this lovely spotlessly clean motel. Lovely comfortable bed. The owners were very friendly and obliging. From a female point of view, a nice little touch having a mirror in bathroom that you pick up to see the back of your hair, appreciated that, thank you. They have a nice grass area with... More

Our stay at the Colonial Manor Motel was great. There were 5 in our party and we were able to get two rooms with access through an adjoining door which was perfect. Beds were extremely comfortable and the overall standard was very high. Very friendly service and we were told without having to ask, about the restaurants and stores close... More

I have been remiss in not writing this earlier! We stayed here for 2 weeks last year and have since recommended it to friends who are there now. The hospitality extended by Tony and Jenny was much appreciated and made our visit even more enjoyable! Cromwell is a great centre to explore this region of NZ.

Colonial Manor provides very comfortable beds, bathrooms with high quality showers and all the necessary facilities for a great stay. We had a sitting-out area which was great in the evening sun. The surrounding vineyards and old gold mine towns provide great daytime adventures and there are good reataurants to meet most needs in the evening (try No. 7, the... More

Great place to stay. The motel was very clean and well appointed. The bedding was super soft and comfortable. There was 4 of us travelling in our party and we all thought it was a great place. Would highly recommend to other travellers.
