Comfortable older motel on the outskirts of town. Perfect for an overnight stay. Nothing flas but everything worked and although it is on the main road I slept solidly thanks to the bed comfort and cosy nature of the room.

The hosts were very helpful and friendly, and the rooms were very tidy, clean and comfortable. Not too far to town where there is everything you need. Plenty of parking and although I didn't use, there is also extra parking for large vehicles. I will definitely be back.

Robcol2, Owner at Rosetown Motel, responded to this review

Thank you for your review. I would be interested to know which unit you stayed in so that I can address the issue of the low water pressure in the shower. If you would like to email me, I can look into the matter. More

Scoring this motel 2 seems a bit unfair, but an "average" rating doesn't feel right. This was ok for one night but very dated and the shower was the weakest we had in the whole of New Zealand. On the plus side there is a pool to cool off on a hot day, on the minus you need it because... More

I am concerned that your shower had low water pressure and that you had problems with the lock on the door. I have had the locksmith in to check the locks on the doors and all are now working as they should. I agree with you that there is nothing better than a good shower with plenty of pressure. The...

The small outdoor pool was welcome after a hot day. Spacious room with good kitchen facilities Welcoming and helpful owners - they phoned us after we left about clothing my son had accidently left in the depths of his bed, and we were able to pick it up later.

That pool is well used on these hot days! When it is time pack up and leave, It is easy to overlook an item left behind, especially when it is the depths of a bed.
