“Better than being at home”
Reviewed 27 December 2013

Immaculately presented rooms and so quiet.I was moved at no extra cost to a downstairs room which was available due to that day being so hot.Price was very fair and reasonable and so close to centre of town.I would definitely stay again.

Thank you for your review. It was a particularly hot Cromwell summer day and as we weren' t particularly busy we were able to move you. Most things are a short walking distance and that is a feature of the motel.

My wife and I were touring NZ from January to March and this was the best motel we
experienced. The facilities,cleanliness,and attention to every detail were perfect. An excellent cooked breakfast was also good value.That is based on NZ costs which with the current exchange rates we found to be expensive everywhere.

Thanks for reviewing our property. Our cooked breakfasts are becoming more popular especially as we move into Autumn but we also offer a continental breakfast which is delivered the previous evening which is handy for those guests wanting an early start to their day. We have tried to keep our prices as fair as possible considering we offer a 4 star experience with many extras which our guests appreciate.

We spent one night here in early April and had a very pleasant stay. The people on Reception were very friendly and informative. The Motel room was fine, well equipped and clean and we also got free Wifi. The Motel is situated close to Cromwell Centre so within easy reach of shops and places to eat. Happy to recommend it to others

Little things really do count.. make you feel wanted :) ~ good supply of tea, coffees, hot chocolate.. and a little treat :)
Great to have real milk! (so sick of the little tubs supplied at other places!)
Clean & comfy.
(We stayed in the studio unit..I see comments about a need for a sink... now they have a bin supplied for our convenience :) )
Friendly hosts
Handy to the shops.

Thank you for making the time to post a review. We get a lot of satisfaction from making our rooms as special as we can for our guests and it is great when the extras we provide are appreciated. These days it is all to easy to cut costs wherever possible but we find the little extras help to keep our guests coming back.

Thank you for taking the time to post a review. We have taken on board your comments and changed our on line description to make it clearer what the upstairs studio room offers. Unfortunately is not possible due to space configuration to have either a sink or cooking facilities in those 2 less expensive rooms. We can lend guests an electric frypan and have done so in the past. Please just ask ,we are happy to help our guests wherever possible.Hope to see you back at some time in the future.

Stayed for two nights at the end of December (27 and 28) and found the room and the complex to be absolutely wonderful. The room was spotless and the bed was THE MOST COMFORTABLE bed we've ever slept in! It even beats our brand new bed at home! Attention to detail was spot on - everything had been thought of, right down to the fruit bowl for all the cherries we picked. Motel is within easy walking distance to the shopping village, restaurants (can highly recommend the pizzas at the Golden Gate Hotel which is about a 5 minute walk up the road) and the local pool is just across the road. Lovely garden setting with lots of places to sit in the shade and enjoy a cold drink. At $135 per night for two people, this was excellent value and we'll definitely be back. Thank you so much for a lovely stay!

Thank you SandraB for your review. The beds, since we added topper pads have created a lot of good feedback and after all a good nights sleep after a hard day of work or play is essential. The cherry season is in full flight at present and many of our guests are enjoying the export quality cherries on offer from the local growers......they are just delicious , straight off the tree! These are followed by apricots,nectarines and plums......Yummm

This is a very clean, well equipped and friendly motel. We stayed in a studio room which was a generous size, had a very comfortable beds and was nice and quiet. Highly recommend staying here if you come to Cromwell.
