Thankyou for your kind comments. We will always try to accommodate travellers as we are fully aware of the kind of stresses which can afflict those trying to meet deadlines, or travelling long hours.
If we know people are likely to be late , we make their rooms comfortable and inviting, so that they can immediately relax upon arrival.

Many thanks for your coments.

Another great stay at Carrick Lodge. We are fast becoming frequent guests and this place never fails to impress. Rob and Joan are excellent hosts and we are always well looked after. Rooms are spotless, very spacious and include kitchenettes with stoves. The motel is walking distance to the shops and the local pub. Speaking of the local pub..... Highly recommend you stop into 'the pub' (which I think is called Ale House Bar and Grill) for a meal and a handle of speights!
If anyone is heading through Cromwell and is looking for a place to stay please make Carrick your first choice, you will not be disappointed.

It is great to see return guests - some after many years and from different parts of the world. This is one of the great pleasures of this hospitality business - developing longterm relationships.
I'm glad you agree with our slogan that Central Otago "never fails to impress". It isn't difficult to be very confident when we suggest places to visit for our guests. A varied landscape with another slogan filling the mind - walk in the hills, or park up, turn off the engine, and "let the earth speak for itself". Hope you come back an visit us again soon. R & J

Not surprising to find this fine motel just as comfortable, clean and professional as ever. Ask Rob if he's got his wormery up and running yet! Bikes are available and there is plenty to see in the area. Summer temperatures are hot and a great place to taste fresh NZ fruit. Plenty of wineries too. Never known my washing dry so quickly! Fully recommended by a fussy Scot. Happy travelling.

"Lang may your lum' reek" Rob... always a pleasure to see return guests and renew old acquaintances. I've got the systems in place but just need to get the worms to feed - and we will improve our footprint to be less obvious. One thing about central otago - it is quietly confident of its natural heritage and is making good progress in maintaining it with dignity. It is definitely a place where you can find solitude if you want it - and always best when noise is kept to a minimum, and you hear the landscape speaking for itself.

3 days based in the friendliest little place in the country. The room is sunny and comfortable. The motelier is knowledgable about the area and gave us great pointers as to the places to visit. He regularly checked to see that all was good with the room, that we were enjoying our stay, well appreciated.
Cromwell is the perfect location to base yourself if wanting to visit the many vineyards in the area, a short drive to Bannockburn, Alexandra, Clyde and Arrowtown.
The Town and Country Club is right on the lakefront with astounding views and all the people are very friendly and welcoming.

Those who take time to explore the area do experience the difference that is Central Otago. It is unique in so many ways. Presentation of our rooms and support of our guests remain a major focus of our business, and we love encouraging others to explore the area. Central Otago never fails to inspire and surprise. Your great feedback inspires us to continue. Many thanks and all the best.

Just returned from spending Christmas and New Years in Cromwell New Zealand. This is the without a doubt the place to stay. I had a beautiful executive room. The room was ready for me early in the morning, spotlessly clean and large.

The owners are super friendly and helpful. This is an ideal place to stay as an alternative to the craziness of Queenstown. During spring, summer and fall you are right in the middle of the Central Otago winery area and during the winter ski fields are handy.

I have no hesitation in recommending this motel to anyone. Will stay there again on my next visit to New Zealand

It is always a pleasure to meet people and part as old friends. We cherish the relationship side of hosting people from all walks of life and parts of the world. We gain inspiration from each person and enjoy their stories as they explore this area of Central Otago. Cromwell is the hub of the wheel.

Great hosts and fantastic clean, big and modern rooms. All rooms have a small kitchen facility and outside seating space. They are fully equipped and are very clean and comfortable. The owner was very knowledgeable about the area and was keen to give us suggestions for things to do and see in the area.

We love to showcase this particular part of New Zealand. Often travellers are limited in time and we make sure that personal interest and unusual places of interest are included in our guests itineraries - whether while they are in Central Otago or as they travel to other places. There is such a lot of variety in this area and there are "not to be missed" opportunities for all guests. Enjoying the experience, creating a relationship with the environment and people who come our way is always exciting. A pleasure to have been part of your journey.

We spent just one night at the Carrick but the friendliness of the hosts, cleanliness and comfort of the unit had us wishing we were staying longer. The unit outlook over a greenfield/park was lovely and relaxing after what had been a very busy day. Would have no hesitation in recommending Carrick Lodge - and as another reviewer said - you got real milk not UHT!

Thankyou Raewyn for your encouraging comments. We believe that the "taste" and "Flavour" of the experience is as important as the journey. Next time - spend a longer time at Cromwell as we can suggest some great places to visit in the Central Otago Region.
