Modern room was very well designed and the shower in particular was excellent. The presentation on arrival was amazing and the bed very comfortable. Friendly staff who know who make you feel welcome and the WIFI in the room was fast and worked perfectly. A short walk to the centre of town with shops, restaurants, cinema and gym. A nice place to stay to get away from the busy city life. Would stay again.

We stayed here on a cold October night. The room was clean, warm, quiet and comfortable and the staff were friendly and helpful. The motel is in a great position just up the road from the main shops of Te Awamutu. Highly recommended, thanks for a nice stay!

Very clean and tidy, great beds for a good night's sleep, awesome shower with loads of pressure with multi adjustments for the rose.
Hosts couldn't be better.

Room Tip: Sounds a bit naff saying everything is excellent but it was. If I said anything thing else I wouldn...
