Nice place, value for money, clean fresh presentation, extremely quite. Great night sleep, friendly no hassle service both on the phone and in person. Would recommend to any company traveller as a stop over.

It's difficult to fault this motel. We stayed just one night (with an excellent meal at the Manawatu Marine Boating Club, Foxton Beach), and found the very large room to be excellent. The manager was amazingly friendly and helpful. The prices may be slightly higher than elsewhere, but they are well worth while. There's no point in looking elsewhere - this is the place to be! We stayed in over a dozen different motels on our month-long tour of the North Island, and we would have been very happy if all were as good as this. Need I say any more?

We found Paul to be friendly and most helpful. It is located in a quiet street with ample parking right in front of the unit. It was well presented even a chocolate to have before bed. The bed was as comfortable as we have had anywhere in the world during our travels., even the pillows were the best we have had. Should we have a need to say in Foxton we would certainly return and would recommend them.

Thanks for the review.
It is good to read that the extra investment into pillow quality has paid off.

Tucked away from the main highway, the Celtic Motel provided a clean and quiet comfortable room in which to rest and relax. Very hospitable owners who provided that extra touch to the stay. Would stay there again.

Would highly recommend this motel to others and will definitely use them again on our trips south. Paul was friendly and helpful pointing out everything in the room. He gave us juice for the kids who were weary after a long days travel. Nothing was too much trouble even posting our 2 year olds teddy back to us that we left behind. The location is very quiet and the rooms absolutely spotless! A great place to stay!

The owner Paul was extremely helpful which included making provision for storage under cover of our two expensive motor-cycles to protect them from overnight weather and for added security - this consideration was much appreciated. The motel was very well presented and clean in a quiet location.

Paul and Lesley are genuine hosts who run a very peaceful, very clean, tidy and comfortable motel. They went out of their way to ensure our stay met all of our expectations - and it did. They provided invaluable advice on tourism attractions and restaurants - nothing seemed too much bother. The room was very comfortable with everything you would expect in today's technological world. Beds were very comfortable and the room was well equipped with all necessary cutlery and crockery.
