Great location in town centre, easy walk to cafes, restaurants and shopping. Very clean and everything has been thought of right down to complimentary snack bowl and fresh milk on arrival. Bathroom clean and spacious in our studio unit. Owners friendly and helpful.

I notice that most people review this Motel at 5 Star; I beg to differ when compared with other Motels. Yes, I stayed in a downstairs unit, and it is a superb home away from home, with spotless surroundings, a large room, fully equipped kitchen, great shower, air con and wonderful hosts, it doesn't quite measure up with 5 star...

We really enjoyed staying at the Hawera Central Motor Lodge for two nights. The rooms are immaculate, well appointed, comfortable and spacious with lots of extra things to enhance your stay. On arrival I asked about storage for my two bikes and the owner didn't hesitate to offer his personal garage space to keep them safe. When we walked into...

Stopped overnight here for a family funeral - we wanted two nights (Sunday and Monday) but most of Hawera was booked out and we could only book for one night - all due to the Fontera dairy factory and the off shore oil project - family provided the accommodation for the second night - first impressions count! The unit sparkled!...

What more could you want? Arrived after dark and it was nice to be taken to the already warm room and have the lights switched on. Spotlessly clean, very well appointed and little extras like the nibbles. Great TV and full Sky channels plus movies and sport. Very comfortable bed and a great breakfast in the morning.

This is a great little motel indeed quite a hidden gem. I spent 2 nights at this motel and was met by good sized rooms immaculately clean. Everything you would want is in the room complete with a small gifts basket of fruit chocolate and biscuits. A real pleasure to spend the time there. So well priced as well.

Was doing three days of writer workshops around Taranaki. Lovely to 'come home' to the friendly faces of the Stringers and their lovely clean and roomy units. Shower was excellent. Bed bouncy. Cleaning done to perfection each day. Wee treats and lots of generosity.

Perfect location across the road from a supermarket and down the street from a great restaurant. The manager was extremely friendly and welcoming. The room was exceptionally clean and most importantly the bed extremely comfortable. It was a cold evening and the room was toasty warm.
