“Clean, tidy, and comfortable stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 June 2014

Nice little motel in the center of Te Aroha, very close to everything. Tidy and clean room, family unit, however the "parents" room had 2 single beds, not a double etc which was a bit strange. Friendly and helpful staff. Only small problem was the people staying 2 doors from us. I don't know if they were locals or just satying at the motel, but they would come and go throughout the day/evening and drink outside palying cards. They were very loud and noisy. I tink they may've been visiting someone staying, or perhaps lodgers. They did quiten down about 10pm so we weren't actually bothered by them. We just thought it was a little disrespectful, also playing the bass very loudly at 8:30am from their car parked outside is not on.

Room Tip: One room has a king sized bed, book early if you want it! Also you may want to bring a USB stick wit...

We are four friends who went for a weekend of tramping and exploring in the hills behind Te Aroha. We stayed two nights at the Te Aroha motel, our hosts were marvellous, friendly and helpful with lots of good advice and assistance about the local area. The rooms were clean and well maintained, and the motel is located on the quiet side of Te Aroha, but most convenient for the hot pools and other amenities. We would definitely stay there again, and recommend this motel to anyone wanting to stay in Te Aroha. .

We were very comfortable in our unit.
It was clean and tidy, had air conditioning, a bonus which I did not expect, and the internet connection worked really well. We were close to town, and the Museum with its hot pools and lovely gardens. I loved Te Aroha, especially the Museum, where I spent a couple of hours, and the general tidy appearance of the town. I thoroughly recommend this Motel.

Have to admit the motel didn't look much from the road , but as they say don't judge a book by its cover, as the Te Aroha is a great motel. The hosts are just lovely, friendly , very welcoming, and funny, just great people. The room , we had a studio room, was very clean and had everything you needed for a comfortable stay, even biscuits and mints.

Take the time to read the information booklet , which has the local history, it was so fascinating and made me realise how much there is to do around Te Aroha.

Location of Motel is very central. Loved hearing the town clock.

Highly recommend you stay here.

We stayed one night in a family unit. Very well presented and comfortable with everything that we needed. The information provided on attractions in the local area was comprehensive and very helpful. Would recommend to anyone wishing to stay in Te Aroha.

Was recommended by a family member and totally agree that it is excellent accommodation for a small town like Te Aroha. Clean, tidy, well priced and comfortable. Both of my daughters thoroughly enjoyed our overnight stay especially the cookies and mints provided.
