stayed for one night for a business trip. The rooms are quite large with full cooking facilities. Breakfast was continental as I needed to set off very early the next day. I was able to get an evening meal at the local sleights ale house and charge back to the room which was handy. The room was well presented and... More

Very pleasant motel. Management were welcoming and provided lovely fresh home baked muffins. Our unit backed out onto the golf course and was very quiet. The beds were very comfortable and we had free WiFi An enjoyable stay.

After looking at 3 other accommodations we were very impressed with the rooms that were offered to us at Lake Dunstan Motel, Cromwell. The rates were reasonable. We took 3 rooms as we were 3 couples traveling together. The complex layout was simple and there were lots of parking space. We could park our vehicle right in front of our... More

We view "Trip Adviser" to gauge accommodation especially in unfamiliar towns and it works well. Here we were greeted by cheerful Marianne who showed us to our delightful sunny unit overlooking the golf course. After our long journey warm muffins & cuppa was appreciated. too. The presentation of our unit was immaculate, well heated and with modern appliances incl multi... More

After many days of travelling, we wanted to spend 3 nights in Central Otago region tasting wine, walking, etc. This motel was an excellent place to stay, closer to wineries than Queenstown. Our room had a view on the golf course, very quite. Service was very good. Do not expect fancy furnishing, etc. but expect a good place to stay... More

Stayed here a couple of days ago - what a delight. Unit backed onto the Cromwell Golf Course and was soooo quiet. 2 min walk into Cromwell Mall. Clean and tidy. Great price. Comfy beds. The homemade Muffins on arrival given to us by the friendly owner were a nice touch. Will return for sure for longer next time.

Due to school prize giving I had to change our bookings a couple of times, this was not a problem at all. On arriving we were greeted with lovely home made muffins. My husband and I were based in Cromwell for 3 days. The motel room was lovely and quiet, it overlooked the golf course. We had a morning paper... More

First and lasting impression was standard of cleanliness. Meticulous and Impressive. Our room was quiet and we left ranch slider open as it backed on to flowering roses . Would not hesitate to stay again at this motel. Owners are friendly and helpful.

We stayed two nights at the end of October. We chose Cromwell because of its proximity to several wine sub-regions and this property because of the positive Trip Advisor reviews. Both choices proved to be spot on. Its golf course location gives you quiet and privacy, its kitchen and close proximity to a New World market allows for proper self... More

We had a unit overlooking the golf course. A lovely outlook. We found the unit cramped but quite adequate. We were welcomed by lovely hosts and beautiful muffins. We would rate this as a good 3.5 star motel in a handy location.
