I booked 2 nights online through booking.com as the photos & information looked good. Very nice friendly greeting by Sanjay (the manager). The location was convenient, the room lovely (quiet & clean), the foyer is homely & welcoming. Only one niggle - trying to contact reception from the room by phone outside of regular business hours was difficult. I would... More

Very clean hotel and friendly couple running it. Room was spacious with great shower and they let us check in early. Feel they could do more with the bar area as it was shut the whole time we stayed. Otherwise perfect for our needs.

Yes, the property does not look impressive on the outside and the decor is a bit conservative but the quality of the fit out, the warmth and comfort, the size of the rooms and above all the warmth of the fabulous staff makes this a great choice.

We were a little surprised to turn up and find that the place looked deserted. On entering the Office area we were greeted warmly by the Manageress, our first impression of the inside was that it was spotlessly clean. We were shown to our room which was large, bright and tastefully decorated, the walk in shower is amazing. The Manageress... More

Arrived late to a place in darkness but once raised the manager could not have been more helpful. I had a quirky but very spacious room, amazing bathroom with a super walk in shower and a very comfortable bed. Although it looked a little old fashioned and run down from the outside, I spent a very comfortable night here.

We stayed in this hotel for one night whilst we were in Masterton. Our room was large, modern, and comfortable with a king sized bed on which we slept very well. There was also a seating area with a comfortable couch. The room had a very modern bathroom with a walk in shower, which was lovely to use. We also... More

We had a very comfortable room which was quiet, spotlessly clean and suited our needs well. On the downside, while the kitchen space was adequate, a bit more room wouldn't have gone amiss, as would some more shelf space in the bathrooom. A contintental breakfast in our room was nicely served with plenty of variety. Sanjay, the Manager, and his... More
