“Very comfortable place to stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2008

We stayed two nights at Carrick Lodge in May 2008 - it is now under new management and the new owners seem great. The rooms are very clean and comfortable. The location is good too - there are several food options just over the road at the Cromwell Mall. Cromwell also makes a great base for exploring the local wineries so we were glad to be staying there.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2008

We opted to stay at Cromwell for 2 nights rather than the busy Queenstown. We had an end room with windows on three sides and it was very spacious. The spa bath was very welcomed at the end of a day touring the region. It was just delightful. The greeting was warm and friendly, and the manager at the time could not do enough for us. The motel I understand has just recently changed hands. We would certainly go back!

  • Liked — The large spacious room, the spa bath in the bathroom and the extemely helpful attitudeof the staff

We stayed the night before we went to Queenstown but should have stayed here for the two nights instead!
Nicely decorated with comfy beds & a clean & inviting atmosphere. The value for money was excellent & out of the 10 hotels we stayed in while in NZ, it was one of the best. I'd certainly stay here again.
Great spa & close proximity to all shops & services. We were in a room near the main road but didn't hear any traffic noise at all.

  • Liked — Atmosphere & brilliant room
  • Disliked — Nothing, it was excellent

LOCATION:
Only 1 hour drive from Queenstown , it is a nice alternative place to stay if you are after a quiet night for a very reasonable price. We paid $115 for the 1 bedroom unit. We were upgraded to a room with a spa.
ROOM:
Very clean, new, comfortable bed, quiet.
FACILITIES:
Coin operated guest laundry available. Parking just outside your unit. Breakfast also available on request.
OVERALL:
Would definitely stay here again. If you have time, there are places you can visit within Cromwell. This town was famous for Gold Mining. The service was good and we highly recommend it!

  • Liked — Cleanilness
  • Disliked — Cars parked right outside the rooms. Can be a little noisy
