Good for short and long stay visits. Nearby shopping centre. Do not leave without having there Continental breakfast, a must. Always friendly, will return again and again. Very clean rooms. Ideal for business stay or holiday visit.

Stayed here with my family in January 2015. Well equipped and comfortable. Good position and easy to find. Pool a little cold but very clean. Very helpful staff. Would definately stay here again on my next visit to NZ.

I have stayed here twice for work now and really liked it. The decors a bit tired and the Lino in one of the bathrooms was cracked but it seems well taken care off. They have a selection of charge back for dinner within walking distance. Good selection for breakfast and reasonably priced. Internet is free and pretty quick. Beds... More

Discovery Motor Lodge is a great place to stay to be in town and has everything you could want for a short or longer stay. Self contained rooms and a pool are on offer. The owners are really friendly and easy going. The rest of the staff are great. We stayed in a self contained room which had a lounge... More

We stayed a night recently and would recommend the place. It is a little tired, chips and knocks and cracks in the shower etc but everything was very clean, surprisingly quiet for a busy road and good sized rooms. Minus a few 'features' such as TV in the bedroom and bedside lamps but otherwise a perfectly acceptable accommodation. Good location... More

Absolute first class accommodation and service, well located, well appointed rooms/suites, clean, comfortable, can't hear road noise from bedroom (rear unit). What more can one ask for, I will definitely stay here again. Staff are friendly too. One other thing, before I arrived the heat pump had been turned on for me beforehand so the suite was already warm.

I have stayed at this hotel twice now, and have been impressed both times. The staff are friendly. The rooms are clean, a good size, with good sized bathrooms also. Kittenette is handy with basic facilities there to use. The hotel is handy to a supermarket, local restaurants and not too far from the main shopping area. The thing I... More

Best nights sleep I have ever had in a motel. The beds were really comfortable. Nice rooms, quiet location and walking distance to shops. Kitchen was well set up and heating was excellent. Will be staying here again.

An older place but clean and tidy. The room was a very good size, older furnishings but clean, tidy and well looked after. Staff all very friendly. The spa bath was nice to relax in at the end of the day. The main thing I didn't like was the lack of net curtains on the windows overlooking the car park,... More

We stopped at Masterton on our way north from Wellington. The motel is well situated at the start of Masterton and not far from the supermarket. Restaurants are a drive away down to the main street unless you want KFC. The rooms were a good size and the kitchenette quite adequate. The owners were very helpful as to restaurants and... More
