“Great Hotel, central location”
Reviewed September 9, 2012

My wife and I spent one night in Morronsville to attend a funeral had to make the booking at short notice was no problem. We had a recent experience of staying in a cramped motel room so chose a Superior Suite which was nice and spacious with greate facilities. Unfortunately I found hair not belonging to us in 3 different places in the bathroom, in the toilet, shower and on top of the tissue box (of all places). The rest of the suite was very clean and tidy this certainly seemed out of place with the general presentation which was very good. Apart from that we were very happy and would recommend this hotel and if you were staying for more then a couple of days would recommend the superior suite.

Room Tip: For longer stays, stay in a Superior suite well worth the little extra.

We stayed in room 14, a two bedroom unit, last weekend. The unit was very spacious and spotlessly clean. Bathroom facilities were great, spa bath a treat for my Mum :) Owner, Jan Wetton was extremely helpful and pleasant. We had family members stay in two other units while we were there and they were very happy too! Wouldn't hesitate to stay there again.

A couple of weeks ago we had to go to Morrinsville for our sons wedding. The lady owner was the most helpful lady I have ever encounterd on my many travels she is a gem and I only wish all motel owners were as friendly and helpful. The rooms are excellent and well appointed. I cannot recommend this motel highly enough. Would stay here again if we go to morrinsville. Thankyou so much to the lady owner.

Have stayed here on a number of occasions, the most recent a couple weeks ago. Nicely sized rooms, very obliging host's and some nice cafe's and restaurants down the road. The rooms are very tidy, warm and are comfortable. No hesitation to stay again.

Not a huge amount of touristy things to do in the bustling rural town of Morrinsville, but if you're passing though this pretty town and need a place to rest you head, then this is it. The motel is located within easy walking distance to the shops and cafes. The rooms are spacious and well appointed, with comfy beds, flat screen tv, kitchenette, internet...etc. We only stayed one night but would have been happy to stay longer. The owners were friendly and helpful.

We stayed at this motel during a trip around NZ in January 2012. We were very impressed with the room and the owners . We could not fault our stay in any way and would not hesitate to stay here again . The owner was very friendly and helpful - a lovely lady .

Room Tip: Its not a noisy place by any means , but those furthest away from the road are obviously the quietes...
