Im not sure there are that many places to stay in Te Awamutu but this motel is worth considering. The owners were welcoming and flexible. The motel is close to the road so it is worth asking for the rooms furthest away if you are alight sleeper. Rooms had TV, Fridge, cooker and air con. The motel is a short... More

Thank you for taking the time to write a review about our motel and pleased that you were satisfied with your accommodation. You made a very valid comment about being away from the road if one is a light sleeper and we are only too happy to meet our guests requests. Regards Cheryl and James. More

We booked well in advance since it was a holiday weekend. Bit of a mix-up over the unit but the charming owner, Cheryl, soon had it sorted. Kitchen cabinetry is dated with drawers needing repair. Window security stays would be great for night ventilation. Comfortable bed in a well appointed unit, clean and tastefully furnished.

So pleased that you were happy with the unit you requested and it was clean and comfortable to your satisfaction. Fashion changes over the years, not only in apparel, but also in kitchens and bathrooms. I look forward to achieving the dream of new kitchens and bathrooms in the motel and plans are underway to start on that project. I... More

Stayed here as we had a 21st birthday party to go to and this was the closest motel to the venue. The room was clean, tidy and spacious. The room had a kitchenette, iron and ironing board, hairdryer. The room had everything we needed for our overnight stay. Cheryl was most helpful and friendly. This motel is on the main... More

We stayed here over Christmas and New Years. I have family in Te Awamutu which made staying here a no brainer. The weather was humid which we are not used to so we made great use of the pool, jumping in for a dip every afternoon. The pool was always very clean and the water nice and cool. The beds... More

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Cheryl was very welcoming and insisted if we needed anything to give her a call. We had a room next to my inlaws which was also very handy. We would definately stay again.

We were in Te Awamutu for a friends wedding in August and had a great stay at the Rosetown Motel. The rooms are spacious, clean and the hosts very friendly. We had friends staying in other rooms and they were happy for us to all socialise in the grounds which was awesome. Thank you!

We booked with a large group for a wedding and were welcomed by the lovely Cheryl to our accommodation. The rooms were cosy on a winters nights - thanks to Cheryl for putting on the heaters before our arrival. The rooms were clean, tidy and very well stocked. Not far from town or the golf course. Would definitely recommend Rosetown... More

Everything about staying at this motel was easy. Cheryl was very kind and helpful and she even turned the heater on in our room before we arrived as it was quite cold out.

Just a note to express my gratitude for the understanding that was received from management, with their decision not to charge for an extra night after my son stayed with them for 3 nights following the breakdown of his car. We were advised that he would need to pay an extra night after checking out after 10am. He did try... More

Stopped here enroute Waitomo - Auckland. Very adequate and reasonbaly priced and looking around the area is probably one of the best VFM motels to stay in. The rooms are pretty large and all the systems worked well inlcuding a small amount of free wifi. Manager/Owner was very helpful and pointed us towards an excellent fish and chip shop close... More
