The motel was very easy to find coming in from Wellington. Our room was very clean and spacious with full oven, microwave and free Wi-Fi. Amenities such as pool looked very inviting although was too cold when we stayed. Very handy to supermarket and just a short drive into town and out to motorplex complex. Would definitely stay again.

I was a bit put off when I arrived at this motel. I said to myself it is going to be another night full of traffic noise. Then I asked the owner if I could have a room further away from the street. To my delight, there are several rooms ‘hidden’ at the back. I upgraded to one of the...

My family and I came down to celebrate a 21st. The staff were wonderful and our room was clean and spotless. We have been here before and enjoyed the family unit so when we entered the doorway we were presently surprised when we saw how spacious our studio unit was. Thank you once again for making our stay pleasant

We only stayed one night in this motel and was easy to find. It is very handy to the shops. The room was very clean and comfortable and had a lovely warm heat pump which was most appreciated this time of the year. We enjoyed our overnight stay thank you.

I travel around a bit by motorcycle and do not usually book ahead preferring to find a place when I get toward the end of the day . I often spend a night in Masterton because it is relatively close to Wellington and the ferry and I do not like staying in the city. I will use the Highwayman again...

Lots of space in the room, bed was super comfy and warm but the decor is super outdated, shower is old and pressure isn't all that good, dribbling almost.. $109 to stay for one night, room wasn't worth what we paid!
