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

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
