We stayed in the motel for 3 nights. The motel owners, Marg and Doug were very friendly and they provided free bikes for us to get around. The room was very clean and tidy. If I am staying overnight in Cromwell in the future, I will not hesitate and choose to stay in the motel immediately!!!

Our hosts were very approachable and genuinely friendly. The facilities were very modern and clean. Much care was taken by the cleaning staff to ensure that our stay was comfortable for us as well as our baby. A high chair was even provided, which was a first for us on this holiday, and the port-a-cot was made up beautifully. By... More

One issue that means that some motels stand apart from others is the ability to relax in a comfortable chair, rather than having to perch on the edge of the bed or on one of the upright dining table chairs. Apart from being a large, well-appointed and well-equipped room, this motel had two large easy chairs. There was free wifi... More

Have stayed here a few times when needing accommodation in the area and found the owners really nice and accommodating. The rooms are spacious and well appointed and the place is very central to all of cromwells amenities restaurants etc. In summary have never found an excuse to change.

I stopped at Carrick lodge during a motorcycle trip down South. The manager had turned on the heat pump so that the room was nice and warm when I arrived. The spa bath was very welcome after some cold riding, room was well appointed, modern and comfortable.

Cromwell is a great stop for Motorcyclists - and we enjoy your entertaining stories. Everyone loves the roads and the scenery and the off-roaders find very interesting tracks to traverse the length of the South Island. Remember that (being a biker from earlier days) the garage is available to keep the bikes out of the weather while you stop at... More

Thankyou for your kind comments. We recently installed a new Heat Pump into the room for extra air conditioning as it is a large north facing room. It is the favoured room by our staff who enjoy having morning tea on the front terrace. Relaxing and views that speak for themselves. Regards. R & J More

The motel is perfectly situated to explore the region. The hosts were excellent, offering advice and a video on the construction of the local dams. The sitting out area beside our room was an excellent place to use the barbegue and enjoy the local wines.

Cromwell has so much to offer - it is a pleasure to share such a unique area. We are constantly made aware of the enthusiasm guests have for the area. The Landscape, the produce, the people - it all speaks for itself. Join us again sometime. R & J More

Forced myself to return here, quite against my better judgement (lol) and, try as I might, couldn't find anything wrong with the place...again. As someone else has stated, look no further, this is the best, and, you are guaranteed a lesson or two from the teachers... Still no wormery/compost bin tut tut. Thanks for a brill stay.

Love the comments. We did (lol). Great to meet up again and hear of news abroad. We work on keeping Carrick Lodge Motel up to standard with our 4 star plus. Hospitality and renewing friendship goes well together. Maybe 2014 is the year to get the wormery going? Thanks for stopping in the lovely Cromwell basin once again. More

A lovely stay, with very friendly helpful hosts. Chatted for ages on arrival, and were even offered a video to watch on how Lake Dunstan and the Clyde Dam was made. We really enjoyed it. The room was great, we stayed in the family unit. Slept very well in the comfortable bed. We would absolutely come back here again.

As other reviewers have indicated, this is in walking distance to everything in Cromwell - the shops, local restaurants, and the Golden Gate Pub ... great because we went to watch the All Blacks kick the Aussies and knew we could walk back to the unit.

Yes- we have the best location in town. Thanks for your review. It is always a challenge to put in three single beds into our spacious studio's that normally are configured with a King Double. We are certainly aware that the evening you were here would have had reduced space. It would be great to see you again. Perhaps the... More
