Beautiful place and really welcoming, friendly owners. The bed was very comfy and the whole apartment was clean and well kitted out with great tea and coffee-making facilities. Would stay again and would recommend to friends.

Our stay was short but this motel is clean and well set up. They accommodated our large family no problem and were so friendly and welcoming. This is a great place to stay on a quiet street. Foxton is a quaint wee town and we would like to spend a bit longer next time. Would happily stay again.

After a long days driving/ferrying, Celtic motel was just what we needed. Greeted by genial host Paul, we were shown our room for the night....it was all you could ask for, ultra clean, well appointed and with decent wifi....much better than some of the big hotel chains that we had stayed in. Highly recommended for a good nights sleep.

We stayed here for one night as Wellington was full up because of the AC/DC Concert. Therefore it was good location, very friendly and helpful host, clean and large sized rooms with simple furnitured. In the bathroom sink was unfortunably equipped with two separatet taps for hot and cold water. A good price service ratio.

I am there with my friends for a day. I experience was amazing. The Motel staff are very sincere and dedicated. I forgot by camera in the room. The Motel person made a great effort to reach out for me and hand over my belongings.

The Celtic Motel is likely the cleanest motel we've encountered on an extended motor tour of New Zealand. We had a good rest there because it was so quiet. As we departed, we suggested to the owners that they put a sign on the highway to help people to find it (we almost didn't find it ourselves) but they responded...

Thank you for the review and feed back. We have been working for sometime with the department for signage in our region. We are finally getting in place an international sign symbol, re motel to clearly direct customers to our motel.

Quiet, nice and dark at night, great heating, everything you could want. Host was very friendly, even putting heater on for us. Comfortable bed with electric blanket. Couldn't complain about anything, we really enjoyed our stay and will go there again.
