“Best I have stayed at”
Reviewed October 28, 2012

Stayed two nights at the great motel, Of all the motels I have stayed at over the last 12 years this would have to be the best, great location, great helpful staff, and the best rooms I have stayed in.
Every thing close at hand. The bed was soooo good
I will be going back again, and recommend to others
Thanks for a great stay.

Room Tip: All rooms appear to be great we had room one which was so quiet

Thank you Phil for your review. We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay and especially the comments on the beds. We place special care on bed comfort as we have travelled a lot ourselves and a good sleep is a priority at a motel for the majority of guests especially business guests. Hope to see you on your next visit to Central Otago.

Fantastic Motel - the most comfortable motel I have stayed in. Spacious, warm, heavenly beds and wonderful hosts. Can't recommend too highly. Centrally located in stunning Central Otago with views over the mountains from our balcony. Will definitely visit again.

Thank you Sarah for taking the time to comment on your stay. We are delighted you enjoyed your weekend away and hope you will visit us again some time. Quite a few of our guests have commented about our comfortable beds since we installed new topper pads over winter.

Stayed for 2 nights and highly recommend Colonial Manor. Large spacious room with bonus of DVD/tv in kids room, a desk in their room and a breakfast bar for eating at. Great location easy to walk to shops, pool. Friendly staff ready to help. Good to see they try and recycle as much waste as possible too.

Thank you for your review. The addition of the second DVD player in the two family unit side bedrooms has been very popular with both parents and kids since being installed about a year ago. The proximity of the heated pool across the road is also a big hit as a family entertainment both in summer and in winter . We have been pleasantly surprised and delighted at the willingness of most of our guests to participate in our rubbish separation and recycling program . Every bit helps reduce landfilling our lovely countryside.

Thanks StuartL.Trust you will be down our way again before too long and discover more of what Central Otago has to offer over all the seasons of the year. As you probably saw, our glorious Autumn leaves are really quite magnificent at present.

We booked for one night and stayed for three. This motel and its friendly helpful hosts is a must to book into when visiting picturesque Cromwell.

It was clean and modern and central to all activities in Central Otago. We had a wonderful stay and would not hesitate to stay there again next time we visit the area.

The hosts went out of their way to make us feel at home and were very knowledgable about the area. Thank you for your great hospitality!

Called in on our way through gorgeous Central Otago & found this spacious accomodation at a very good reduced price. Friendly helpful owners who worked the whole time we were there, offered help with everything around the area. All the little extra's around the spacious, fully equipped motel room & large bathroom with everything you could ask. Large laundry right next to us was wonderful ~ better than the 5 stars we had stayed in as we really had everything we wanted, quiet despite being close to busy roads ~ and some 'Hobbit's Crew' were staying there during filming!! Comfy beds, linen & fluffy towels nice. Thanks for the stay!

Room Tip: Have a quick look at amenities like cooking & laundry (& dryers!) if you have a chance. Th...
