This is a great motel to stay in especially for its central location. It is within walking distance of everything, and the owners (Martin & Heather) were so hospitable. We came home one night a bit late, and the Ecoya candle was burning and the room looked so inviting on a cold night. After we checked out, Martin was still... More

The bed was reasonably comfy but sunlight comes through the curtains making sleeping in past sunrise difficult. The bathroom was a bit dated. Also I didn't see any food at the motel so you must bring your own or... More

This is my Motel of choice when ever I'm in Marlborough. I stay here regularly every five to six weeks and it is always up to a high standard. Always clean rooms comfy beds and great service. Very handy to restaurants and town centre. Book ahead as it is a very popular place to stay. Highly recommend.

A comfortable and spacious place to stay with the kids. Loved the spa bath. The place was clean. Convenient and central location - walkable to town centre and only a short drive to most of the wineries. Reasonably priced. Service was friendly.
