New owners have done a really good job of updating the inside and outside of the motel - really clean and friendly service. Beds were very comfortable and showers had great pressure. Will definitely be back.

Visited a friend who was staying in unit with young children. It was cold and the children were cold. I asked the manager for a heater to put in the room and he said no heater needed but could give more blankets. Appliances were old and had to guess minutes on microwave. Wasn’t impressed by lack of empathy. Positive note - it was clean and a nice unit.

Stayed at this clean motel with two grown up boys. Nice and clean just lacking in a few things. We didn’t realise there wasn’t a hob or oven just a microwave and not enough sockets so couldn’t do more than one thing at a time. Lovely hot water and good shower with plenty of toiletries.

New owner trying to make changes and update the rooms. Motel was decent but parking on the premises was tight. Clean and comfortable and supplied a decent sofa bed for our child, so we all had a decent night's sleep Located on the corner of Thames road (and opposite the racecourse) but traffic dies down reasonably early

Thanks for your comment, Chris. I really appreciate that because every single point you mentioned is real and honest. The renovation is still going on and after all inside works, outside works will start, pavement, painting, signing, etc. All I am saying is, I try my best to make everyone stay comfortable. Thanks again for your time, and please stay with us again whenever you stop in the area. Regards, Tony

We had a great experience with Tony at the Racecourse Motel. We were caught on the wrong side of a storm which closed roads to the Coromandel overnight. In a tight spot, we rang Tony late at night on a Public Holiday eve, and he was more than accomodating, putting us up in rooms with a brand new heat pump and lending us some phone chargers. The accommodation was everything we required in a tight spot, and the price was fair,
