Owner was most unhelpful, and not friendly, don't deserve to be in business really!The owner was completely unwilling to compromise or negotiate the rate even though we had booked five units for a family function. Units very overpriced for Masterton, more like Auckland prices

Stayed here for a few days with work. Room was a studio which normally would be too small for a longer stay but the rooms were big enough for a dining table and a couple of lazy boys which was great. Cooking facilities were fine, bathroom and shower were great with good pressure. The free wi-fi is a bonus. Only... More

The room was clean and tidy, there were some nice touch's with some mints by the bed, tissues and toiletries in the bathroom, They also have some basics toiletries for sale eg toothbrush and past set ect.

Good point – Nice modern facilities. Unfortunately that’s where it stops Bad points – Kitchen cupboards and draws still had old food from the last occupant - We had booked for 8 people and were given 4 rooms. Upon arrival our numbers had decreased to 7 and we no longer needed one of the rooms, we were told that if... More

This is a very disappointing false review as this "terrible experience" was bought upon themselves. This guest booked 3 One Bedroom spa suites and 1 studio suite for 2 people in each. The customer was told the price of the accommodation when he made the booking some weeks prior to their stay. Confirmation for this booking was e-mailed to him... More

If exploring this area, a good base. Neat, tidy, everything you need - and a spa bath to help relax at the end of the day. Or sit in the Lazy-Boy chairs and watch sport...Good kitchen and everything you require. You can order cooked breakfast - and the menu was reasonable. Friendly and helpful staff and unit serviced each day.

Stayed just one night in a spa one bedroom unit. The lounge was bigger than most and had a couple of Lazy-Boy chairs to relax in. Real luxury !!!!!!. There was also a dining table, kitchenette, sky tv, free wifi and a king bed in the separate bedroom which also had a second TV. The bed was a bit firm... More

Stayed here very recently and theres certainly nothing really to complain about! The motels are modern and new'ish and checking in was quick and friendly with plenty of parking available right outside your motel door. The complex is relatively handy being on the way into the Masterton shopping area. We stayed in a studio unit and this was of a... More

Nice modern motel with plenty of parking. I am not sure why on tripadvisor it is not grouped with the other motels in Masterton and listed as specialty lodging?? At first was unsure of its location as it is on the main road into Masterton but didn't find it noisy at night as it is fitted with hush glass. The... More

This is such a lovely motel with polite managers and clean, tidy rooms. We had a 2 bedroom unit which had a tv in the lounge, main bedroom and second bedroom, which isn't very common in motels, so I loved that. The water pressure was amazing in the shower, which is great, unlike many motels. I actually moved to this... More
