“Fantastic”
Reviewed October 27, 2011

If only their was more Fabulous accommodation like Carrick lodge in New Zealand backpacking would be a breeze. The self contained room is a great size & absolutely spotless I could not find one fault. Most comfy bed ever. You have everything you need from coffee/tea making facilities (they even supply you with proper milk not the UHT crap.. Which as we were recovering from jet lag & love our tea cheered us up immensely!) to sky sports to every kitchen appliance you could possibly need. The location is ideal you are directly across the street from the supermarket, cafe, banks etc. But more importantly the liquor store is right next door. Joan & Rob have thought of all the little luxuries you need when you are away from home but are unable to fit into your rug sack. So far the best motel we have come across. I encourage people to check in to Carrick lodge.

Room Tip: If only their was more

We travel to Cromwell monthly for business and can't say enough about the warm hospitality and excellent accommodation at Carrick Lodge. Rob & Joan go the extra mile to ensure we are well looked after each and every time, and there isn't a better accommodation or more convenient location in Cromwell. The rooms are spacious with up-to-date decor, plenty of windows and great views of the surrounding hills and all the amenities that make a home away from home - fully equipped kitchen, comfortable dining table and chairs, spacious and modern bathroom and very comfortable beds. With Wanaka and Queenstown only 45 mins away, Cromwell is a great central base for corporate travellers, as well as those touring Central Otago for the skifields and the wine country. Carrick Lodge does not disappoint.

Hi Jan
Many thanks for your kind comments. "A home away from home" is the experience we work hard to develop for our corporate travellers and we are delighted you feel that way. It is always a pleasure to host the two of you on your regular visits to this area. We are fortunate to have a unique positionto offer the corporate travellers as Cromwell is central to so many towns and businesses.
Kind Regards
R & J

We found the Carrick really marvellous. Rob was very hospitable and even lent us a DVD about the history of the flooding of the original town for a dam - very interesting and informative. Our room was self contained, large, comfortable and beautifully furnished - a cut above the usual motel (several cuts actually). We also had an outdoor area with lovely views to snow-capped mountains. The area is very scenic (as is the whole of the SI !) with lots of wine growing and with such lovely accommodation, we were really disappointed that we could only stay one night. Highly recommended.

Hi Ngarita
The Historical presence of this place never fails to inspire me - perhaps it is the "Gold fever" within, the high rocky Mountains or the fact that these early pioneers of Cromwell had so much to do with the shaping of our young country. It is fantastic that you have been able to gain so much about this unique area after only one day. Thankyou for your generous comments about Carrick Lodge Motel.
We work hard to maintain high standards.

We were offered excellent off season rates by the friendly staff in reception who gave us an excellent recommendation for a lunch venue (Mt Difficulty Winery). The rooms were very clean and roomy.

We were really happy when we arrived at this hotel with both it's location and the hotel itself. It was meant to be a one night stopover on our way to the Milford but if we had had the time we could have stayed a couple of days. Cromwell is a beautiful spot surrounded by water, wineries, restaurants and history. Our hosts were warm and the little touches they offered such as makeup remover clothes, fresh towels after we went out for dinner, choice of milk for coffee togetherwith plunger coffee were nice. We also had a great meal up at the Golden Gate pub with a selection of local wines. We wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

We stayed one night while exploring the wineries of the area. We stayed in a large studio and it proved to be a modern, sunny, chic room where we stayed in for the night and just took it easy. We cooked our own dinner as there was a grocery store about two short blocks away, and the kitchen was nicely stocked. Our room had a view of the mountains and while it was right off a main road, I slept soundly and did not hear any traffic. We had a delicious authentic Thai lunch at Thai Crom in the little mall across from the Lodge. Also, there is an I-site to provide recommendations for sightseeing in the area and beyond. There are quite a few places to do some hiking and the Old section of Cromwell. If you enjoy wine, be sure to visit Mt. Difficulty, Quartz Reef, Wooing Tree, and Carrick (no affiliation, I believe). There are plenty more, but those were our absolutely our favorites. Be sure to visit Wanaka which is just a 40 minute scenic drive away! Cromwell is a quiet town and was great for relaxing from our hectic itinerary.

We have stayed twice now at Carrick Lodge and we can't say enough positive things about it. Rob and Joan, the hosts, are really delightful people which is always a great start. The rooms are super clean (even when we turned up at the last minute) and the bed and linens are lovely quality. We have stayed in a spa room both times and they are warm with a HUGE spa bath. The other great thing about Carrick Lodge is it's location. You literally cross the road to Cromwell Mall which has a few eating options (go to Feast) as well as takeaways and the i-site. We were almost snowed in here and were quite sad when we weren't. The rates are really reasonable. Highly recommended...
