Te Aroha Motel
Ranked #2 of 4 Te Aroha B&B and Inns
Reviewed February 25, 2012

This place is pretty dated, wooden cupboards and floral bedspreads and the rooms are a little on the small side, but it's a real taste of small town New Zealand. Well provisioned, close to the domain, close to everything in town (as the town is so small), air conditioned and quiet. The hosts very friendly, good value for money.

Have stayed at this motel many times and keep going back (most recently in Jan). The hosts are always welcoming. It is a motel so you wouldn't expect the rooms to be opulent. But there are lots of really nice touches that make it such a pleasant place to stay. Each little kitchenette has a microwave, and the cupboards and drawers have all the cutlery and utensils you could want. The bed is comfortable and the rooms are always clean and aired. They had installed air-conditioning in each room since our last stay, which we didn't need to use but some may find desirable. Very reasonably priced. We highly recommend staying at this excellent little motel in this delightful little town.

Spotless clean, nice and tidy studio unit. Not very well heated in a frosty winter night but this is the norm for NZ, sadly.

We arrived here after a very bad experience at the Te Aroha Holiday Park, to be greeted with a wonderful warm welcome. The room we were given lacked for nothing and the amenities were first rate. It was very reasonably priced and was warm and comfortable. If you are looking for a motel that is excellent value for money then look no further.

We ware 5 cyclists who arrived at Te aroha Motel in the pouring rain at 10:30ams. Nothing was a bother. I know we were early but the rooms were quickly made up, heaters were on and extra tea coffee etc was supplied so we didn't have to go out in the rain.
There were many little touches that made our 1 night stay so much better - magazines, biscuits, really good supply of toiletries etc. Our bikes were locked safely in the garage

I would recommend this motel to everyone

We highly recommend this Motel. Though built some years ago, the facilities are very clean with updated beds, bedding & bathroom fixtures. The shower pressure is great & there is plenty of hot water.The hosts very friendly & helpful. Though the motel is situated in the centre of town it is qiuet & the restaurants & hot pools are within a short walk.
