Reviewed April 10, 2013 via mobile

Although we only live in Christchurch which is only 100 kilometres from Tinwald. My wife and I decided we need to make the most of a 3 day break and get out of CHCH after work. So used tripadvisor to find a place recommended by others.

Tinwald Motel was the pick and arrived there at 9 pm to receive a warm welcome. Motelier had been in a placed the air conditioner on to warm the room.

Very spacious and clean room. A good quiet nights sleep by both of us. So can only confirm the positive reviews and will recommend to others.

Dear NZ2,

Thanks for choosing us for your weekend getaway, we are pleased you enjoyed your stay with us! Because we only have 12 rooms we are able to offer that extra touch of service like putting on heaters on chilly nights for our late arriving guests, we even have electric blankets and have been known to switch them on for our guest on those extra cold nights!

Thanks again, and come back soon!

We stayed there twice this trip and would recommend the units. They are spacious and exceptionally well equipped with comfortable beds and a good Internet connection. The staff are very competent and friendly while the restaurant is quite good.

On our travels from Wanaka to Christchurch we decided to break our trip and booked into the Tinwald. So glad we did. It was spacial, clean, friendly, modern and quiet. A lot better than the other accommodation we had booked. Highly recommend.

Obliging hosts and a spacious unit for the tired traveller. Heater was on when we arrived so room was warm. Hosts even brought us ice from the bar next door. Super clean unit and good value. Back from the road so relatively quiet. Easy parking.

Room Tip: Upstairs are less used units.

We were very comfortable and happy with our stay at the Tinwald Motel. We had a little bit of trouble finding it as the address was just "Main South Road" and it was just a little set back but it was well worth the search. Our room was modern and clean and the hosts were lovely. Although they didn't have separate laundry facilities, we were able to do a load of washing in their machine and it was delivered back to our unit when it was done. The motel was a little distance from the town, but there was a restaurant right next door which had good family fare and it was excellent for our overnight stop as we were passing through.
