My husband chose this motel for us to stay at, I actually found it nicer than some of the more expensive hotels we have stayed at. It's nothing overly fancy but it doesn't cost much and it has everything you could want. I'd definitely stay here again.

The kitchen is well appointed and the bathroom has a good shower etc. The proprietor's are very friendly and welcoming and allowed us to bring our wee dog which is appreciated. Cromwell is a nice quiet town... More

Nicely decorated too, made you feel very safe and cosy! Nice short walk to Old Cromwell Town and the old Victoria pub. Would definitely stay there again and... More

We had the Cabana unit, nice enough (although a bit dated), clean, private, pretty basic but for the price we weren't expecting anything too fancy. Hosts we very nice and friendly. Handy for Cromwell old town (although it was closed at 3.50pm on a holiday weekend)

Fantastic motel, it was warm and comfortable, very quiet with full kitchen facilities. The bed was soft and we slept so well. The owner was very friendly and helpful and they has lots of lovely extras, like good plunger coffee. huge bathroom. Good wifi. We would stay here again I give it top marks.
