The room was comfortable and well equipped to eat in if desired. The manager was extremely friendly and helpful. Interesting town was a good halfway point when traveling between the east and west coasts.

Our only regret with this property is that we weren't staying longer, just a one night to break a long journey. The room was very spacious, spotlessly clean, very well equipped and just what we hoped for. If we were staying again in the area we would be back!

Great stay. Tidy and comfortable stay in a quiet motel. Across the road are the shops, cafe's and bars. Close to the winery's and a simple drive to either Queenstown and Wanaka. Summer or Winter this part of the country is worth a visit.

Thank you for your positive comments. We have been surprised that Cromwell doesn't attract more skiers over the Ski Season as we are quite handy to all the Southern fields and as you correctly point out our local Cromwell motel prices are significantly better. Hope to see you again next season. Thanks for choosing to stay with us. More

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.

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!
