“Very Friendly and Relaxing.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2012

My Partner and I and Mother-in-law stayed here over two nights over the weekend. The room was spacious, very clean and modern with comfortable beds, kitchenette, and dining table and chairs.
The breakfast was good and the peaches were great.
Our Hosts, Paul and Lesley, were very friendly and gave good advice on restaurants in the area. A very welcoming pair.
We received a package from them once we were at home in which was my Mother-in-laws glasses. Thank you Paul and Leslie for sending those up.
I would highly recommend this Motel as a great place rest and relax. It is central to the area and has great Hosts.

My husband and I had a stay in the Celtic Motel for a night and day. This motel is the cleanest we have ever experienced and it is tastefully appointed too. The bathrooms are large and convenient - in fact we could have held a party in the shower - they are really roomy. The charge is very reasonable and the owner/s went out of their way to make our stay comfortable and convenient. They even cooked out steak for us! We are very impressed and would stay there again and also recommend it to any of our friends. Thank you Paul. A fabulous stay and our business was conducted with privacy and in peacefulness.

Room Tip: The motel is situated away from the main highway and therefore quiet.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2012

The family unit we stayed in had been recently decorated and was very clean and modern. Celtic Motel is in a quiet, pleasant location. We were very impressed with the proprietor, who went out of his way to assist us on a couple of occasions. The only (minor) downside is that the cooking facilities are very basic - just a microwave and very few bowls to actually cook things in.

We would definitely stay here again.

Lovely comfortable beds , quite, and clean.
Unit was ok for family of 4 for 1 night only but not enough room in unit for any longer. We felt very cramped.
Ideal for 2 people but definately not a family unit however rate was same as a family unit elsewhere.
Host was friendly & helpfull.

We stopped in here on the way north fro Chch. I emailed before hand to ask if it would be a hassle if we arrived at 11.30pm. This was fine as they were able to leave the room unlocked for us as well as we pre ordered breakfast whiich was delivered on time and was excellent. The bed was comfy, the room was large and very clean. I stay in alot of hotels/motels for work and this was one of the cleanest. The heater waas on when we arrived so the room was nice and warm.

My only suggestion would be extra blankets, although there are electric blankets on the beds.
