We stayed here on our way through to Greytown. The staff were friendly and helpful. The room was good value, and huge! It had good facilities. We enjoyed use of the spa before bed. It was a good location to walk to the supermarket and o get dinner. The rooms/units and set out in lovely grounds, and with the majority... More

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

I stayed with two girl friends for a night away from Wellington. Mark and Kylie (the owners) were awesome, great service and lovely people. We enjoyed a large 2 bedroom unit at the rear of the section so there was absolutely no traffic noise. There is a spa pool which we relaxed in before going to the nearby Wairarapa Trading... More

My friend and I were travelling the North Island when our car started having problems. It was Good Friday, so we were told to take the car into Masterton and wait the weekend until the shops were open so we could get it fixed. We got to the motel, and our host Mark called right away to see if anyone... More

We only stayed 1 night, stayed in 3 Bedroom unit. It was huge, owners were great. We live in Australia and were travelling around New Zealand with our 2 youngest children and a friend from Upper Hutt.

Stayed here for a few nights whilst in the area. The room are of a good size but in need of updating. The current owners are new and are aware that they need to modernise, they are very nice and helpful in ensuring your stay is a pleasant one. Slightly off the main road, the property offers a quiet respite... More
