A group of friends stayed here last weekend for a wedding, we arrived a night earlier than our friends but were late. Arrived to find the light and heat pump on, staff were very friendly and units were clean and comfortable. Great spot so close to supermarket and shops. Highly recommend this motel.

The rooms and cleanliness are awesome but the bathroom was the only problem. The staff are friendly and offered to show us the room. The room had large space and had a kitchen to cook in the middle of the wild. The bathroom at night was terrible. When I woke up I found lots of dead moths on the floor... More

We stayed for one night on our journey north. We picked the motel because they had 2 bed apartments available at a good price. The rooms were quiet, clean and spacious. The staff were very welcoming and helpful. The motel was convenient for shops and restaurants. Would recommend for a stopover.

This was such a love!y motel. The host was so friendly, suggesting a trip out to castle point which was lovely. The unit was clean, modern and very comfortable. There is a pool on site which we didn't get time to use. We would stay here again if in the Masterton area.

Stayed just one night. Good value for money. Host was helpful, particularly when we had a minor issue with a leaky air conditioning unit. Room provided for all facilities one would need but felt it would benefit from having some net curtains at the main windows.

I have stayed at this motel on a number of occasions over the last 12 months and every time the standard has been high. The rooms are a good size and room facilities good for a business traveller. The hosts are friendly and helpful. The only down side like a lot of 4 star motels is the beds are a... More

We called in at the end of a day on a holiday weekend. Such a friendly welcome even though they could not house us for the two nights we required. They gave us the last unit they had at a reduced rate and then organised alternative accommodation for the following night. The unit was well appointed and spotlessly clean. It... More

We stayed with a group of car enthusiasts. The room was clean and comfortable with a well equipped kitchen. The motelier went out of her way to make us welcome, assist with setting up for a meeting and helping with catering preparation. The motel is well located near a supermarket, bottlestore and takeaway outlets, not very far from the centre... More
