“So clean”
Reviewed April 20, 2014 via mobile

What a lovely motel. Friendly owner, and our unit was serviced daily which isn't something you get often these days without asking. Great parking and so close to town we could walk. Will definitely stay here again.

Stayed April 2014, traveled as a couple

Taihape is ideally placed for travellers between wellington and the north.
We made this choice and enjoyed a friendly welcome.
The room is a reasonable size and has separate bathroom.
The motel is fairly close to the road and there is road noise from trucks.
I noticed, my wife didn't
Very good value for a one night stop.

Room Tip: The higher number rooms are further from the road.

We arrived in Wellington late due to a ferry delay. We drove North and Taihape seemed to be the right place to stay (about a 3 hour drive). Graham was very pleasant when we arrived. The accommodation had a separate bedroom with a queen and twin, and there was another single in the front room. We also had a small kitchen area. The bed was comfortable; all the appliances worked just fine; the bathroom was clean and more than adequate; we found they had even cleaned the windshield on the car before we left the next morning. Never heard the cars on the road. Not luxurious, but we didn't expect that. Good value.

While on my way up north I found the coachman motel. Very relaxing and quiet inside the room. Rooms are clean and welcoming. Arrived late at night and owner was accommodating. Bed was very comfortable. I would stay here again without hesitation.

My sister was out from London so we decided to go have a look at our old home town, not many left that we know now - couldn't catch up with Dawn as she had already gone home....at 9.30am!
What a lovely experience the Coachman was, such lovely helpful people and much to our amazement our very dirty car windscreen had been cleaned for us in the morning. The room was great, plenty of room in the shower and nice comfy chairs to sit in. Restaurant right over the road which was very good, we had to laugh as they were even playing our music from the 60's, thought we had never left. We would both go back again anytime.

Room Tip: We did not look at any other rooms but ours was excellent

Stayed here for a night due to bad weather while coming back to wellington from Ohakune.
The Owners are very friendly and pleasant people. They have a list of local restaurants/eateries and they even gave us suggestions where to eat. Rooms were neat and clean, albeit a bit small. the room had kitchenette facilities. The heater in the room was powerful and heated up the room quite efficiently. As the motel is right beside State Highway-1 so you could hear trucks passing by however we would recommend this place to everyone.

Excellent service received from the couple at the coachman. They were very helpful and accomodating. The room was very nice and comfortable and they even had the heater going for our arrival. I would definitely recommend this as a great place to stay. Ps. Thanks for cleaning the ice off the ute before we left.
