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.

Stayed here in mid May for 2 nights while exploring the surrounding area. The unit was clean and tidy with a good kitchen. Always a bonus if you don't want to dine out for every meal. The owners were extremely helpful and made sure we were aware of what there was to see in Cromwell and surrounds. We would definitely... More

We stayed in an upstairs Studio (2 Adults & Infant). Was a huge room with nice furniture. Nice place to stay at. Had heat pump which was very handy. Kitchen & bathroom where separate from bedroom/lounge which was very handy with a crawling infant!

I recently stayed at this motel. The service was outstanding. The owners went out of their way to accomodate my needs and even left a delightful message on my phone advising me of their plans so I wouldn't be inconvenienced. The motel unit was very clean and tidy. Many thanks and highly recommended.
