As I base my choice of motels mainly on price and location, I choose this motel based on the price. It was defenitely one of the cheapest, if not the cheapest motel in Masterton. Also I booked 10 motels for 10 days all around New Zealand and this was the cheapest during our trip. But you got see why. Furniture,... More

Was nice and clean, the kids loved it. Short walk to shops and out to dinner. Had sparks coming out of the plug so TV wouldn't work, but they came over quickly and fixed it. Nice friendly staff and comfortable beds :-) Not too far to drive to Wellington

We arrived a touch early so the room wasn't ready, we returned a bit later and were delighted with the amount of space (we have 3 children) The tennis court and playground were great for the kids to play on. The pool was a touch cold but very refreshing as it was a hot day. We made use of the... More

We enjoyed the havely ground's and the swimming pool Sadly the rooms are very tired, Kitchens and Bathrooms still in the 70's, while I see it is under New Management we did feel although old it could be a little cleaner Owner friendly,

One night for two in an Executive Studio. I booked the room via booking.com the night before, and paid on arrival. Check in/out was relaxed and friendly. Free wi-fi was advertised but not offered at check-in. The photos online represented the room well. Slightly dated decor, but comfortable and spacious. Quiet location with studio situated away from the main road.... More

The room was spacious, clean & tidy. We have stayed twice and have another two possibly 3 more visits booked. It is handy to restaurants, nice and quiet, and the pool and the spa were a hit with us. A genuinely nice place to relax after a long and tiring day. Would recommend to anyone. Good value at a reasonable... More

Couldn't believe the size of the unit !! Very spacious for the bed TV couch and side board. The grounds are very big and everything about it would suit the whole family. Within walking distance to town and our unit at the rear of the property was nice a quiet.

We stayed recently with dogs. It is great that they allow them to stay. We kept ours in the vehicles and the grounds are lovely to walk them in. Rooms very clean and roomy, but as stated above, ours was dated and did not have furniture or style as in picture on this site. Cutlery and plates but no tea... More

Largest and cheapest of four places we stayed on our trip. Plenty of floor space, which is good when travelling with dogs. The facility has an on-site area for free running, and plenty of grassy places for dogs to do what they need to. Seems like great facilities, although we didn't really take advantage of the opportunity to try them... More
