Right up there with the best. The unit we had was quite spacious, very modern and spotless. This was our second time at this motel. We were extremely impressed with our first visit in 2012. Ownership of the motel has changed between visits and the new owners have carried on the outstanding service of their predecessors. The motel has designated... More

Had a lovely nights accommodation here last week. Booked late in the afternoon and once we arrived we were given a free upgrade to a 2 bedroom suite. We were made to feel very welcome by the hosts. Enjoyed the spa pool. Handy to shops and supermarket.

The staff and management were extremely helpful at this motel. The facilities were clean and well equipped. The evening meal I ordered was tasteful and well presented. Will definitely book in for a return stay next time I am in the area.

Was good for an overnight stay. Also has spa pool and play area for kids. Had we stayed longer I am sure we would have enjoyed the facilities. One could also book breakfast the previous evening if they wanted to. Mark, the manager of the motel was really nice and friendly.

On the 31st of August until the 5th of September I was part of a sports team (15 teenage girls & 3 adults) attending the Secondary Schools Winter Tournament week in Carterton. We chose to stay at the Highwayman Motel, Masterton as it was only 10 minutes from the venue we were playing at. Kylie and Mark were awesome hosts.... More

The brekkie was amazing, real bacon, sausages & not stingy. Well worth the price and very filling. Had a brilliant couple of days R & R before heading on to more work. Kylie & Mark very approachable & down to earth people.

We stayed at the Highwayman Motel in April 2014 for a bowls tournament. The owners Mark & Kylie were very welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. Our unit was clean, bed comfortable and water was always hot for showers, even though all the units were full during our stay. The washing machines and dryer were free to use and... More
