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.

Booked a 2 bedroom unit for 4 adults,2 children and was kindly upgraded to a 3 bedroom unit on arrival, Spacious rooms and comfy beds. Heaps of room for the children to run around in. A good shower too to start and end the day. Close to town. Thanks for the free wi-fi!. You go to so many motels that... More

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... More

Lots of space in the room, bed was super comfy and warm but the decor is super outdated, shower is old and pressure isn't all that good, dribbling almost..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!

Paper thin walls and cheap towels and sheets BUT had a great stay! Lots of space for 3 kids and a dog and 2 cars. Lots for the kids with a playground, trampoline, outdoor chess set and pool & spa. Nice and quiet with very friendly managers, lots of hot water and heaters. The cosmetics were not perfect but this... More

Stayed here for 3 nights, nice spacious place, clean rooms, we had four people staying, two adults with two teenage girls, they had their own room so they could go in there for their own privacy, nice big bathroom and close to all shops. Recommend to everyone looking for a place to stay in Masterton

Our third visit to this motel. Stayed five nights. Great management team especially Milo. Lovely friendly staff. Very comprehensive room manuals. We do a lot of travelling and we regard this motel as arguably the best in New Zealand. Great for any type or genre of group.

We stayed in the Highway Man on our travel from Wellington up the East Coast of the North Island and found this motel to be great value for money. Despite it being on the main road, there was minimal noise from cars passing by. The staff were friendly and very helpful despite having to cater for a large rugby team... More

Huge spacious place or should I say the place we stayed in was the size of a small house with everything you needed for a long stay. Plenty of parking. I even had a swim in the pool the morning that we checked out.

Spacious room, with everything you need. I did wonder why some things hadn't been updated though like the kitchen cupboards and bathroom, fairly tired looking, marks/holes on walls, old shower. Also the comforter on the bed wasn't clean so I didn't use it and the clean towels had a strange smell to them. Great to be able to do your... More
