Thanks StuartL.Trust you will be down our way again before too long and discover more of what Central Otago has to offer over all the seasons of the year. As you probably saw, our glorious Autumn leaves are really quite magnificent at present.

We booked for one night and stayed for three. This motel and its friendly helpful hosts is a must to book into when visiting picturesque Cromwell.

It was clean and modern and central to all activities in Central Otago. We had a wonderful stay and would not hesitate to stay there again next time we visit the area.

The hosts went out of their way to make us feel at home and were very knowledgable about the area. Thank you for your great hospitality!

Called in on our way through gorgeous Central Otago & found this spacious accomodation at a very good reduced price. Friendly helpful owners who worked the whole time we were there, offered help with everything around the area. All the little extra's around the spacious, fully equipped motel room & large bathroom with everything you could ask. Large laundry right next to us was wonderful ~ better than the 5 stars we had stayed in as we really had everything we wanted, quiet despite being close to busy roads ~ and some 'Hobbit's Crew' were staying there during filming!! Comfy beds, linen & fluffy towels nice. Thanks for the stay!

Room Tip: Have a quick look at amenities like cooking & laundry (& dryers!) if you have a chance. Th...

We have just completed a very happy seven night stay at the Colonial Manor, Cromwell.The purpose of our stay was a family wedding plus exploring the beautiful Central Otago region. Jenny & Tony and their staff made us feel at home the whole time, very friendly and helpful. By staying in one motel rather than moving around we realised we had a far more relaxed holiday and actually got to know the area better this way. Thank you very much Jenny & Tony.

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
A recommended stay

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.
