Cannot recommend the Celtic highly enough. I am paranoid about cleaniness but I have never stayed in a motel that was as clean and that includes some very expensive highly rated motels in both Australia and NZ. Paul and Lesley are great hosts and nothing is too much for them. The rooms are large and well stocked with everything you need. To come in on a cold night after a busy day out and find not only a well stocked beautifully cleaned room but also the night lights on the heater turned on so your room is lovely and warm is amazing. So if you are looking for somewhere great to stay choose the Celtic - it is great and the cost is more than reasonable.

It really was something special in fact it was the cleanest most inviting place we stayed at whilst in New Zealand in fact we liked it so much we stayed for another night on our return trip from Wellington. I can highly recommend it to all who may be passing and wanting a bed for the night it was very reasonable and we had a most enjoyable stay and would certainly use it again. The owners Lesley and Paul were delightful people who put themselves out to help us at all times for which we were very grateful.

I stayed at this motel when speaking at a regional conference.
The rooms are a good size, rather large. They are very clean and the motel stil looks very new. There are only two motels in town and the locals recommended this as the better.
Hosts Lesley and Paul are very friendly and go out of their way to make you feel welcome.
The beds are comfortable and one of the highlights is free wireless broadband.
The motel is on the edge of town, so its a good walk to the town centre and resteraunts, although the motel provides a good breakfast. You probably need a car.
The advantage of this is that the motel is on a side road and it is very quiet. No highway noise.

I would stay here again.
