5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2013

Anyone visiting masterton should definitely stay here - great place, really nice rooms all named after race horses which is novel & gives the hotel character, great service - boutique accommodation in Masterton.
Location is great, lots of parking, really nice bar & dining area, nice outdoor patio's off rooms where you can sit in the sun & relax. Stay & you will enjoy it - Faisal will look after you with great service.

From the moment we walked through the door and had our bags carried for us this was a most enjoyable stay. The room had nice décor and was spacious and clean. The grounds lovely. The meal delicious. Host Faisel is an entertaining and accommodating host. Had a great "boutiquey" vibe. Will definitely be returning. Rob & Debbie

Thoroughly enjoyable weekend thanks to Faisel and staff. Dinner was a delight and the service could not be faulted. The Hotel is easily found as you approach Masterton from the south. The rooms are very well appointed and spacious. Naming each room after a well-known race horse is a nice touch. The decor has an "old world, family feel" charm about it but the facility is thoroughly modern.

Host Faisel made our stay very enjoyable. When we drove in didn't know what to expect but a very cool little boutique hotel that exceeded expectations and a great place for a getaway. Decor very nice, rooms very nice and price was ultra reasonable for its standard. Would definitely recommend to anyone heading this way .

Great weekend in a botique hotel, good sized rooms and quiet. As previous reviews frontage doesnt do justice to the inside decor. Faisel was an excellent host and even bought a card and bottle of wine for friends partner whoses birthday we were celebrating. hope owners look after him as he is an asset to any hospitality business and a lot of places we have stayed could do with a host of these qualities

Loved the room - spacious, comfortable, clean, luxurious. Very quiet, an undisturbed nights sleep. Great afternoon sun on the private deck - great for relaxing. The service was impeccable. The very friendly hotel manager helped us with our bags, he was extremely polite, personable, and helpful. The meal was lovely, quick and in comfortable surrounds. Would definitely stay here again and will be recommending to all our friends and family.

A fantastic weekend.The exterior doesnt do this place justice.

We really enjoyed the evening meal which was superbly cooked and presented. We were hosted by Faisel who presented the motel in a fantastic way by looking after us very well and hosting us during the meal. Everything was catered for and he even supplied an evening plunger coffee when requested.

The evening meal consisted of garlic bread then the main course of steak cooked to perfection with beautifully cooked vegetables. Then followed the desert of cheese cake and for my partner chocolate desert.

The rooms was a very well presented king double and was well insulated and warm. The continental breakfast was nice.

A great weekend and I would recommend anyone going tol Masterton to try and book this great motel. With Faisel at the help this place is tops.

Room Tip: Our room was very well presented. There are only ten rooms and im sure they are all of a high standa...
