Reviewed September 26, 2013

While the staff were excellent & the breakfast delicious and on time there was no sky tv or DVD's available, no extractor fan in the bathroom and on the whole its was a little dated.
Good location for the work I was doing that day though.

My husband and I recently had the privilege to stay in a studio Room in this wonderful establishment. The lady that greeted us at reception was lovely and even offered to dry some clothes for me at no charge. The motel was spotlessly clean and had all the amenities one would want. The king bed was one of the most comfortable I have slept in. When booking out had the pleasure to meet the lady's husband who was just as friendly as she was. Don't book anywhere else this is an absolute gem! Thank you Tudor Court can't wait to come back! There is an excellent restaurant Black and White Café about 300m away.

Room Tip: Room 10 has a king bed and double spa bath and is quiet as it is away from main road.

The man behind the desk was friendly and helpful, the accommodation was very clean and comfortable. We had a spacious 1 bedroom 'room' which was perfect for our family as it 2 singles in the other room meaning we didn't all have to retire to bed at 7pm! My only suggestion for the future is to have an extractor fan in the bathroom so one can still use the mirror after a shower. And a light above the mirror for applying makeup at night. We thought it to be modern (possibly late 90's early 2000's??) decor. We thought the price was good for the standard of it and will definitely stay at again.

Room Tip: Perhaps look at a room further away from the road as there are a few trucks that take this main rout...

This motel tops the stakes in cleanliness - absolutely spotless. The proprietors are friendly and efficient and prepared to go out of their way to ensure that all guests are comfortable.

As there was a large group from within the same organisation they were prepared to juggle units to allow maximum flexibility.

The studio units are very well laid out.

Family groups sharing may wish to request confirmation on layout of the family units. While this is not the current proprietors fault,in some family rooms the bathroom facilities are accessed from the main bedroom with extra beds in the lounge area. This is probably not an issue with family groups with younger children however two groups of friends may find it uncomfortable visiting the bathroom via someone elses bedroom.

We booked a night here, the facilities were good, location good. Cellular range was poor but that cannot be blamed on the hotel.

However, the service was absolutely horrendous. The woman at reception, which I suspect was the owner was rude and has the inability to communicate to guests in a professional manner. While standing at reception, she was on the phone taking a personal call, leaving me waiting for several minutes. Their booking system failed, however, the owner was adamant that it was out fault and was not interested on rectifying the fault.

We felt very let down, we paid not only for the accommodation but also the service, we met many amazing friendly people in Hawera, and were only let down by the owners of this motel.

I have advised friends and family to stay elsewhere to ensure their stay next holiday is not ruined by the rude customer service received at Tudor Motel.

The last discussion on check out summed up our stay here, we advised that we appreciated the clean room and great location and advised to have a great day and happy new year. The owners response, Ok. Typical.

Tudor Lodge is very clean and has spacious rooms which are away from the road so not noisy. However we found the beds very uncomfortable and in need of replacing (we tried all 3 in the room) and the inside decor is dated. The spa bath was heavenly and the owners are very friendly.

We visited Hawera for a couple of nights, the hosts were very friendly and helpful people, suggesting various sights to see. Handy location not too far from town, on the main road, but the units are sited back from the road so we had quiet nights. Very clean, comfortable and plenty of room, our bathroom had both shower and separate spa bath. Good shower too. We'd happily recommend staying here. We travelled as a family with our teenage son.

Room Tip: It was nice to have a unit with a separate bedroom if there are more than two of you staying.
