“Excellent Stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2014

Very friendly lady at the front desk, lovely quite motel. My children loved the beds they slept on and the available milo sachets. What a wonderful motel to stay at would highly recommend to friends. Thank you for a wonderful weekend.

We were attending a family function in Masterton on a busy weekend and found it hard to get accommodation. To be honest we normally pick the most expensive and work backwards. We searched and found Colonial and thought let's give it a try. We were surprised how good it was, especially for the modest price. Good sized rooms, very clean and great hospitality. Recommend...

I stayed here over the New Years period and had a really enjoyable stay. The room was very tidy and well equipped, especially the kitchen. We were given a warm welcome on arrival and the staff were more than happy to help however they could, and answer any questions.
An excellent stay - I would definitely recommend the Colonial Cottage Motel.

Easy, convenient stay. Had a good time with friends over new years and wasn't too crowded or expensive. Staff were very helpful, friendly. Unit was big and clean with plenty of bedding. Nice place, would stay there again.

My friends and I stayed at colonial cottage motel over the New Years period. We had the "family room" as there was 5 of us. It was huge! (And clean) The bed I had was really comfortable, plenty of extra blankets and pillows incase it got chilly. We split the cost between us and it was really economic. It's right across the road from all the shops which was so handy! Would defiantly stay again. The motel manager was lovely, 10/10! :)

My husband and I stayed at Colonial Cottage Motel late last year. We were in unit 11 just over from the office. This unit has been recently refurbish to a pleasing standard.

The manager and staff were warm and friendly, and very accommodating. The unit was spotlessly clean and had all we needed for the evening.

We would stay again if the opportunity arises.
