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

We only stayed one night on our way to Wellington. Great experience, very friendly owners. Was able to do all my washing/drying and ironing at no cost. Very clean. Fridge, toaster, microwave, kettle, tea and coffee all available in room, and free Wi Fi

My partner and I stayed for two nights to escape the ratrace. The staff were friendly and our room was spotless and well equipped. The motel has great facilities including a tennis court, pool, spa, imaginative play area for kids, giant outdoor chess game and well appointed b-b-que area. We will be bringing the kids next time.

Very congenial owners and perfectly equipped rooms. Well worth the awards it's won. The lovely owner even cleaned our car windshield for us as we were about to leave. Excellent little tea coffee and toast facilities too.

We'd been driving all day and just turned up here. I don't understand previous reviews about the price - at $95NZ it was exactly what we've been paying for motels over North Island. Service was great, the room was really clean, the tv worked and so did the wifi AND there's a spa pool (hot tub) which was nice. It's... More
