Reviewed 31 March 2012

Comfortable beds and an adequate bathroom. Free breakfast for Goldcard holders.
Noisy neighbours, road traffic and railway though.

We booked 5 units for a wedding weekend (3 Mar 2012). Cheryl was very helpful and provided us with any extras such as towels etc. Rooms clean, comfortable, well equipped and serviced each day. Staff very obliging and friendly. They made our stay most enjoyable and we would highly recommend the motel. Our party of 13 adults and 2 children all enjoyed their stay.

Room Tip: Book in advance, family rooms have extra bed in lounge so sleeps 5

This was clean, basic accommodation, nothing more. The rooms are old, with cinderblock walls and older furniture. The room was very clean, with everything in working order. Hosts were very nice. They provided us with a card for 1 hr free internet, which was very helpful. The nightly rates were as high as we paid for more modern accommodation elsewhere, but I think this is as good as it gets in Te Awamutu.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the highway.

Robcol2, Owner at Rosetown Motel, responded to this review, 10 November 2011
Thank you for your reviews. We knew we had a lot of work to do when we took over the motel last October and since then we have made considerable improvements. New bedding has replaced the dated soft furnishings and modern dining suites have been installed in most of the rooms. Comfortable armchairs and soft lighting have been provided to help create a pleasant relaxing atmosphere in the living areas. We are slowly working our way through re-decorating the motel and making improvements all the time to ensure our guests get value for their money. If only it could all be done in a day! And of course, there is always a warm welcome awaiting you.

This motel has changed hands since our last visit. James and Cheryl now run the business.
Aside from the change of faces, nothing else has changed. The same great service, smiles and nothing is a problem attitude make this motel a gem of a place to stay. Highly recommended.

One slight change I should perhaps mention. The cooked breakfast uses free range eggs and bacon. That is awesome :) Well done.

Stayed here for 3 nights while on vacation in New Zealand. We chose to stay here as a central location to get to Raglan and Waitomo Caves area. The motel has a nice, quiet location but is also close to town. Very kind and welcoming hosts. Good laundry facilities and reasonably priced internet. Rooms are very clean and well-equipped but decor was somewhat outdated. Room contained microwave, stove-top burners, mini-fridge, phone, TV, hairdryer. We very much enjoyed our stay here.
