Stayed here for the 3rd time recently with a large group & again was extremely happy with these motels. The hosts are only to willing to help you out with information on the area e.g. place, dining etc. plus go that extra mile to assist you during your stay. Arriving late in the evening the rooms were warm, very tidy... More

This is a very friendly motel. It was scrupulously clean and well presented giving good value for money and is very handy for the town centre. It was a pleasure to stay there, and we will look forward to a return visit.

We stayed here for three nights over Easter. We were impressed by the size of the rooms and the cleanliness. Our hosts were friendly and attentive. We enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere. Parking was plentiful and had extra parking for our race car trailer. We would highly recommend. Great location to shops etc.

Thank you for your review. Easter was certainly busy this year with Warbirds over Wanaka, The Winged Warriors at Central Motor Speedway plus The Festival of Speed at Highlands as well as weddings and Speedboat racing on Lake Dunstan. The extra driveway is very handy for when guests have oversized or additional vehicles ..... last weekend we had a tunnel... More

Thank you for your kind review. We get a lot of good comments about the comfort of our beds since we put topper pads on them.A good nights sleep is probably the most important thing in a motel after cleanliness and our team works hard to ensure these two things are a feature of our Motel. Thanks again, hope to... More

Great clean and tidy room and very close to the town centre/mall. The room was large, very quiet and it was no issue to add a fold out bed for a friend we had join us. It had full kitchen facilities.

Thank you for your review. As a keen (but useless) golfer it is no problem to lend out sets of clubs to people who wish to play at our fabulous local 18 hole course. In fact we have 3 sets of mens RH clubs available. The bikes are a new addition to our guest amenities and have proven to be... More

I found this motel clean, quiet and well situated. It came equipped with a toaster, electric tea kettle which allowed us to make our own breakfast in the morning. The proprietor was very knowledgeable about the area and was able to point us to a very nice restaurant. He was also knowledgeable about the local wine industry and directed us... More

Thank you for your review. We have quite a few good restaurants in Cromwell but not all are open in the evening which can be tricky for the unsuspecting guest. As far as wineries go, we are really spoilt for choice as there are over 60 vineyards open to the public in the immediate area. We have our favourites but... More

Stayed here three nights and felt really settled. All facilities are well maintained and presented. Spacious and very functional. Would stay here again if in Cromwell again. Hosts friendly. Grounds are beautifully presented and car park right outside your room. Super handy to local shopping centre. Lots of walks and bike trails around this area. Hosts have hire bikes too

We booked here as it was a Host Motel. Something we now realize is a bit of a have. It seems the proprietors up the rates when you mention 'host'motel. The unit was adequate, however dishes had to be washed in the bath room sink. The bed was comfortable and room was clean. Had a lovely meal at pub across... More

Thank you for taking the time to post a review. I can assure you prices are not increased for Host Group guests.

Spent a night there on a visit to Cromwell. Found the room clean, warm and comfortable and the hosts were friendly too. Attended a barbeque in the grounds of the motel a couple of days later - lovely landscaped grounds.
