We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. We were staying due to a family wedding. Only stayed the one night but could have definitely stayed for longer. Nice and friendly staff took us to our room and showed us where the reception was from our motel room very handy walk. Close to restaurant, liquor store, petrol station, supermarket and fish n chip shops. Would recommend to others and would stay here again.

We were very happy with our choice as rooms there are lovely, clean, very spacious and nicely decorated. With fully equipped kitchen which even includes an oven breakfast and dinner were sorted. Bed wasn't super comfy, a bit wobbly, but we are quite picky about beds.
We would definitely stay there again.

Hi OlgaFranco,

Thanks for your feedback, we are pleased you enjoyed your stay in our modern & spacious motel units. After reading your review we went through each room and did a 'bed test' but couldn't find a wobbly one. We would love to hear from you so that we can find the bed in question and make sure it's either fixed or replaced. Maybe you could email us at tinwaldmotels@xtra.co.nz and let us know which room you stayed in?

Thanks again, and we are pleased you enjoyed your stay enough to give us 5 stars!

Although we only live in Christchurch which is only 100 kilometres from Tinwald. My wife and I decided we need to make the most of a 3 day break and get out of CHCH after work. So used tripadvisor to find a place recommended by others.

Tinwald Motel was the pick and arrived there at 9 pm to receive a warm welcome. Motelier had been in a placed the air conditioner on to warm the room.

Very spacious and clean room. A good quiet nights sleep by both of us. So can only confirm the positive reviews and will recommend to others.

Dear NZ2,

Thanks for choosing us for your weekend getaway, we are pleased you enjoyed your stay with us! Because we only have 12 rooms we are able to offer that extra touch of service like putting on heaters on chilly nights for our late arriving guests, we even have electric blankets and have been known to switch them on for our guest on those extra cold nights!

Thanks again, and come back soon!

We stayed there twice this trip and would recommend the units. They are spacious and exceptionally well equipped with comfortable beds and a good Internet connection. The staff are very competent and friendly while the restaurant is quite good.
