Rosetown Motel
Ranked #1 of 2 Hotels in Te Awamutu
Reviewed July 1, 2012

Myself, husband and two girls stayed here for two nights to attend a family reunion in mid June. It has recently been redecorated and is clean and appealing (kitchenette still dated though). Staff were lovely and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend EXCEPT for the terrible shower. There is absolutely no water pressure at all. Was a challenge to get clean and washing hair was impossible.

Room Tip: If you can handle the shower situation and decide to stay here choose a room well back from the road...

Your comments are always appreciated. The unit redecoration was only just completed and I was unaware that the shower was a problem until Jill mentioned it to me. I was mortified to think that she did not have a decent shower and I am truly sorry that she had this experience while staying with us. A plumber has since adjusted the water pressure and now everything is fine.
I note the comment about the dated kitchen and agree with Jill. That will be replaced with a modern one in the near future. I am working my way through the motel redecorating all the units to a higher standard so I can offer our guests a comfortable and enjoyable stay - and will make sure that the showers are all working properly before the guests arrive.

We stayed at the Rosetown motel in Te Awamutu for two nights to attend a friend's wedding. The motel was lovely and clean and Cheryl was very helpful and friendly. The room was a decent size and the bed was very comfy. There was some noise from the highway, as mentioned in other reviews, but it was minimal and we didn't notice it, also all the motels are located on the highway in this town from what I can tell so another would be no different. A nice, affordable, clean motel in a pretty little town.

Comfortable beds and an adequate bathroom. Free breakfast for Goldcard holders.
Noisy neighbours, road traffic and railway though.

We booked 5 units for a wedding weekend (3 Mar 2012). Cheryl was very helpful and provided us with any extras such as towels etc. Rooms clean, comfortable, well equipped and serviced each day. Staff very obliging and friendly. They made our stay most enjoyable and we would highly recommend the motel. Our party of 13 adults and 2 children all enjoyed their stay.

Room Tip: Book in advance, family rooms have extra bed in lounge so sleeps 5

This was clean, basic accommodation, nothing more. The rooms are old, with cinderblock walls and older furniture. The room was very clean, with everything in working order. Hosts were very nice. They provided us with a card for 1 hr free internet, which was very helpful. The nightly rates were as high as we paid for more modern accommodation elsewhere, but I think this is as good as it gets in Te Awamutu.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the highway.

Thank you for your reviews. We knew we had a lot of work to do when we took over the motel last October and since then we have made considerable improvements. New bedding has replaced the dated soft furnishings and modern dining suites have been installed in most of the rooms. Comfortable armchairs and soft lighting have been provided to help create a pleasant relaxing atmosphere in the living areas. We are slowly working our way through re-decorating the motel and making improvements all the time to ensure our guests get value for their money. If only it could all be done in a day! And of course, there is always a warm welcome awaiting you.

This motel has changed hands since our last visit. James and Cheryl now run the business.
Aside from the change of faces, nothing else has changed. The same great service, smiles and nothing is a problem attitude make this motel a gem of a place to stay. Highly recommended.

One slight change I should perhaps mention. The cooked breakfast uses free range eggs and bacon. That is awesome :) Well done.
