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. Tony was a terrific host and even leant me his golf clubs. They had free DVD's to watch and... More

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. The Host Group is a quality standard based organisation and not a discount based organisation.If you book through a third party and not directly with us you will not be getting the best price as we clearly state...

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.

We spent a night in Cromwell to explore the region before visiting Queenstown for conference. Tony was very friendly and welcomed us even though we arrived in the morning. The building is not new but is well equipped and the windows were all double glazed which is not always standard in NZ. Next morning we hired bikes for a couple... More

Thank you for your review. The 2 bikes have proved to be popular with our more active guests and are a good way to see a lot of Cromwell in a relaxed manner. Cromwell is different to Queenstown in many ways and appeals to travellers wanting a more relaxed atmosphere. The lack of hills appeals to many guests. More

Very pleasant stay on a business trip. Tony and wife very friendly and helpful. Unit was nice and clean and well stocked with coffee and the little extras :) And just a two minute walk across the road to supermarket and restaurants. Quiet location too.

Both beds have topper pads fittede for extra comfort. We do plan... More

We booked in here based on previous Trip Advisor reviews but have to admit to being a bit disappointed. We had a good welcome and the managers were very friendly and helpful.

We made a last minute decision to travel to Central Otago and managed to find accomodation at Colonial Manor. New and clean room with a well-functioning kitchen. Great hospitality. Would definitely stay again.

Immaculately presented rooms and so quiet.I was moved at no extra cost to a downstairs room which was available due to that day being so hot.Price was very fair and reasonable and so close to centre of town.I would definitely stay again.

Thank you for your review. It was a particularly hot Cromwell summer day and as we weren' t particularly busy we were able to move you. Most things are a short walking distance and that is a feature of the motel. More
