Stayed here for 3 nights in winter whilst travelling around the South Island. The room was beautifully presented, the owners were absolutely great, welcoming and interesting people. The units are set in beautifully maintained grounds. Cromwell is a great place to stay and so handy to travelling around Central Otago. If you like crowds of tourists, crazy traffic, almost vertical... More

Having stayed at this property a number of times over the past ten years, I would highly recommend the experience. Friendly manager, clean modern unit, all facilities working, handy to supermarket, shopping precinct, restaurants, hotel, golf course, everything required. Park the car and relax.

It was so obvious that the owner takes a great deal of pride in his hotel and worried that every detail was taken care of. The rooms were amazing with every amenity that one could think of. the bathroom was extremely clean and the... More

We were so stoked with the Colonial Manor- we were a late decision business trip over Easter weekend, and we hit the jackpot with this motel. We were blown away with the Hosts, Tony and Jenny- incredibly lovely people. The motel was spacious, clean, and well thought out! It did feel really homely, and nice touches with the lollies every...

Really nice motel in a great location. Hosts super friendly and always there if you have any queries or problems. Internet was a bit hit and miss, and shower pressure not that great, but apart from these two things everything else was perfect. Really clean and tidy, and lots of in room amenities. Thank you!

Thank you for your review. We agree there have been problems with the internet but it is not our TrafficMate system........there are so many people in the area at the moment the whole internet thing isn't coping. We have made our ISP aware. The shower pressure issue was hopefully fixed on Sat morning with our plumber replacing a valve in... More

All was to plan and delightful for my brief stay. I had a spa suite which was nice after my long run on Saturday. The room was spacious and everything worked well. There was great coffee to chose from too, a nice plus.

Wonderful clean and fresh. There was everything one needed. The little extra's were great like the make up wipes ,cotton buds, double sided mirror, cotton pads, free internet connection, biscuits, lollies. These extra bits and bobs made it just lovely. I would recommend this Motel to everyone .

Thank you for your kind review. We like to treat our guests as we expect our experience to be when we travel. As close to a home away from home, as is reasonable for us to achieve, is our goal. We are fortunate to have a great team of dedicated cleaners who do a wonderful job every day. More

This motel is well positioned in Cromwell town with no need for a vehicle to get around. The owners are wonderful people who are only too happy to give tour advice or just to have a chat. There a many restaurants nearby with the Thai being my personal favourite.
