Clean & comfortable (albeit a little dated) quiet location as we had the last unit at the back. Has a small swimming pool and hot tub at the back (although we did not use these) as well as a small childrens play area. Good location to base yourselves if visiting the Waitomo caves as only a short drive away.

My family and i stayed in this accommodation for one night whilst doing a tour of New Zealand. We were given a friendly greeting and bybour hosts who also suggested some wonderful things for us to see whilst we were in town. The accommodation was both spacious and comfortable, we also found the accommodation to be good value. I would recommend this accommodation to anybody who is travelling in a group or family situation. Unfortunetly we didn't use the pool but it was there if we had wanted to.

Room Tip: We stayed on the opposite side of the road to the office after being offerred rooms on both sides of...

Although getting a bit old this place was clean and comfortable. It's not as close to the caves as we would have liked but it was easy to find and had full kitchen facilities. The owner was very helpful with local information and gave us a cheery welcome

Value for money accommodation. Dated 2 bedroom unit but comfortable, with room to spread out for our family of 5. Clean and tidy, with expected towels for each guest. Pool was fantastic in providing much needed relief for Mum and the kids due to the scorching temperature of the day. Dad disappointed that the spa pool was out of order. Motel staff quick to respond to query regarding laundry requirements, and provided guided tour of laundry facility - washing machine and powder provided at no charge to guests (Wow), but $2 if dryer to be used. Plenty of washing lines to hang washing with pegs provided. Nice that motel provided fly spray for guests use. We enjoyed our stay.

Excellent value, low budget motel.

Clean faclities all round. Attentive staff.

Very tidy grounds, beautiful clean swimming pool and clean communal spa pool. Lovely peaceful location looking out to Waikato countryside.

The motel staff recommended the Otorohanga Working Men's club for dinner, and that was delicious and great value.

Would thoroughly recommend. A great place to stay, when visiting Waitomo caves (15km away)

We stayed for 2 nights in a fully self-contained unit, 1 bedroom with closet space, bathroom had 3 separate spaces, 1 with a sink/mirror, 1 toilet and a third room with a shower, very handy! The kitchen was small but we were still able to cook a proper dinner. The living room space had 2 extra beds, a sofa and a dining table with 4 chairs, it was small but not cramped and we felt very comfortable! All windows opened which was fortunate as it was very hot and humid while we visited. We had a large fan next to the bed, which is good because of course no aircon (I think we haven't seen aircon anywhere in NZ!!!).
Hosts Willem and his wife were very friendly and were happy to share tips about the region. We were able to use the laundry and dryer. We walked across the road to the main building and used the outdoor pool and the indoor spa.
The grounds are beautiful and very well kept, as are the motel units. Decor is a bit dated but everything is extremely clean and the bed was very comfortable!
The motel is a short dive away from the town, which has a McDonalds, lots of coffee- and lunch places, few restaurants, souvenir shops, banks, a pharmacy and a large Countdown supermarket. Just a minute's walk up the road from the motel is a small convenience store.
Definitely recommended!
