Wanted to stay central to the Mall for food/drink outlets and came across this motel. Immaculately clean, older units so spacious and to us the best part was the double sliding doors out to a terrace and flat grass area with open views to the golf course. Hosts very down to earth and welcoming and an excellent range of tea/coffee... More

This well appointed motel complex is located within walking distance to the centre of town and yet is quiet and secluded. After a 'hard' day searching out historical gold fields, cherry and apricot orchards and perhaps sampling produce from some of NZ's best wineries or enjoying the thrill of a world class motor racing circuit, it was wonderful to be...

We stayed at this motel one night. Cromwell is a quiet town. This town have many fruits. This motel is very clean and convenient. Staffs are very kindness and very nice. And this motel is near Cromwell golf course, walking about 5-10 minutes.

I have stayed at this motel once or twice a year for several years while I visit the Central Otago region on business - Cromwell is central to most grape growing areas. I continue to stay here, not because it is the most modern but because it is very quiet, extremely clean and tidy (new paint and carpet this time... More

It’s difficult to come up with anything to add to previous reviews but we want to register our 5*. The room was clean, comfortable and well equipped. The owner was friendly and helpful (and we had complementary muffins !). We only stayed one night but can recommend this accommodation and would hope to stay longer if we manage to get... More

We stayed for four nights . Cromwell is an excellent location to use as a base for the wanaka queens town area. The motel backs on to a golf course. The motel is very well looked after and the owners were helpful. The only downside is that wifi in cromwell is poorer than in most of the other towns we... More

A small owner-run motel, typical of so many good places to stay in NZ. We has a sizeable room, with a small kitchen. It was very comfortable and functional. We wouldn't normally rate this type of motel higher than a 4. However, we spent a very quiet and pleasant evening on our patio, with a glass of wine, overlooking the... More

Big room, full kitchen. Internet with MB limitation. Small rest & bath room. Sheltered outside sitting & eating possible. Supermarket around the corner. Can be noisy, depending on your neighbors, we were lucky. Management is very supportive and friendly. Racetrack with different offers is nearby, you need to book in advance if you e.g. want to ride a Porsche.

Great rooms and friendly staff couldn't ask for more everything we needed was available in the unit and clean modern rooms were a joy to stay in with great cooking facilities and next door to the golf course and the bottle store
