“Most enjoyable”
Reviewed 23 January 2012

A well laid out studio unit on the ground floor, well maintained and provided all we needed at a good nightly rate. Clearly the owners are focused on providing a quality service to their visitors.
The motel is situated close to the new shopping mall, isite and other amenities.
Wifi service was included in the room rate (with a reasonable upper limit on usage). The unit was very clean: the bed was comfortable: it was quiet and we got a good nights sleep: the bathroom was well laid out and the shower operated well: it had all the extras we needed, and more.
The hosts provided helpful advice on restaurants etc

Thank you David for your positive comments on our establishment. We are very focussed on a quality experience for our guests and thrive on the generally appreciative responses we get. The 100MB free wifi has been a sucess in that it is enough for most people to keep in touch with families and friends whilst they are away from home.

Thank you for your positive feedback. You are correct ,Cromwell is very different to Queenstown and being so central in Central Otago has a lot to offer the traveller that wishes to explore the area.

After fleeing Christchurch (escaping from yet another swarm of earthquakes) we stayed at the Colonial Manor for two nights. We were in need of sleep and so were looking for somewhere quiet. It delivered exactly what we were looking for - a clean, well laid out and set up motel room that was very quiet and away from the road. The bed was comfortable, it had a good shower and the kitchen contained all that you needed for a couple of nights.

Cromwell may not be Queenstown but it is a fantastic location to base yourself. It is an easy drive to many day trip destinations. It is also the pick of locations if you want to do some mountain biking. Queenstown, Wanaka and Alexandra offer fantastic options and are all very easy to get to if you stay in Cromwell.

We had a very warm and spacious room with all the amenities we required.
A very pleasant break in a beautiful part of the country.
We would highly recommend this property to anyone wanting a great experience and excellent value for money.

Thank you for your positive review . Our business customers are particularly important to us especially over the winter period when disappointingly Cromwell doesn't attract the snow sport crowds like Wanaka or Queenstown even though we are only a short drive away . We certainly appreciate our regular clients many of whom have been coming here for a very long time . Hopefully our room upgrades will meet with your approval and we can continue to enjoy your loyal business.

Lovely motels to stay in - beautiful surrondings, clean luxurious motel with helpful friendly hosts. Handy to restaurants and town Centre, but no road noise. Comfortable bed - slept like a baby. Breakfast was lovely sitting out on balcony in sun - even had sun umbrella provided.
Will definitely recommend the motel to all our family and friends, and will make sure we can have a longer stay next time.
