nothing really stood out: no problems, no delights motel served as a base for walking the Coromandel Forest Park and strolling through Thames on market day, both enjoyable activities the tracks to and from the Pinnacle involve areas where both walking sticks [or trekking poles] and footwear with good tread are highly advantageous

Really enjoyed my stay here, came down with a large work group to do a hiking trip and the motel was perfect for what we needed. The rooms were impeccably clean and the service was just fantastic. The hotel offers both a decent sized pool and a spa, and each room is well serviced with more than enough towels, coffee,...

Motel is just off main highway into Thames township. Our room was quite tired. Really needs a faceift but had all the amenities you need and was relatively clean. Trees outside bathroom needed cutting back as the scratching on window all night was annoying. Our room also had an outdoor chairs and table area. Was lovely to relax there. Staff...

Unfortunately did not enjoy our room. Was not as we expected with lack of attention to detail in room and was not up to our standard. Staff friendly however we were hoping for more from photos. We cut our stay very short.

When we found the Rolleston we were very pleased with all aspects of the motel. The couple who run the business were so helpful in their advice on touring the Corranamdel peninsular and provided us with additional towels just in case we got to the beach. We've been touring New Zealand for the past month and were dleighted to find...

The room we were given was not one of the newer units so my comments are limited to the older areas. Our room was musty, the electric heater was antiquated and inadequate for freezing weather. The floor was rotten and collapsed. The doors at the back to the outdoor area are corroded and are difficult to open or close. The...

We were kindly upgraded to one of the new units so I don't know what the older rooms were like, but ours was perfect. Lovely modern bathroom and kitchenette, super comfortable bed and a semi-private outdoor sitting area. Rooms were very clean, serviced daily and warm and cosy on a cold night.

Quaint little motel recently remodeled, when we stayed here there weren't very many people staying here. At first, it made me wonder what little hole in the wall motel have we come to. Upon walking into the room I was pleasantly surprised, it was very nice, clean, and spacious. It was like a little studio apartment, with a kitchenette and...
