Chose this motel from the NZ AA Guide book and we were very happy with our stay. It looks very ordinary from the driveway but the rooms are spacious and the beds look new and were really comfortable. Kitchen had all we needed except for a freezer so manager took our items and stowed them in his own freezer. Great... More

We stayed here on our way from Dunedin to Invercargill. The motel is quiet and clean and comfortable. We were dealt with quickly and efficiently at the office. We had a 2 bedroom unit which was nice and roomy.

The Charlton was initially chosen because it was pet friendly, which on this occasion was necessary. It was also very conveniently located close to the A&P Grounds, which is where I was required to be for most of the day over a weekend. So, it is located a little outside of the town centre, but if staying here, you are... More

My husband & I spent 2 weeks at this motel, using it as a base for research we were doing locally for a book we are writing. The unit allocated to us was at the back and therefore quiet and safe for our small dog who was welcomed. The unit had a full stove with 4 rings & a very... More

We had never stayed here before. It was cold and snowing, but the rooms were beautifully warm. Looked as if the units were recently or were keep done up. Very comfortable arm chairs to sit in while chilling out. Great electric blanket to keep us warm. Plus a good heater. Roomy separate kitchen with full stove and microwave & fridge.... More

We found the accommodation clean and comfortable, albeit dated. We used a double bed in the living area (with small kitchenette and table) but there was another room with 3 single bed in it which served to put our bags! It is out of town and not much is open in Gore on a Monday night so we ended up... More

Very pleased to get in a newer or renovated room. Nice furnishings, spacious and clean. Tv system ok but not digital in room so features and extras not availsble. It is a bit out of town but totally manageable if driving.
