Good motel run by friendly staff. Rooms are large, well appointed and comfortable. The motel is set off the main road and is quiet at night allowing a good nights sleep. It is a 2 minute drive from the restaraunts and pubs in the main street of Thames. Very good value for money.

This motel, or part of it, is in dire need of refurbishment. The furniture is old and tatty - the crockery is disgusting and the sliding door (in no 1) really needs replacing. Having stayed at the Acapulco motel in Taupo which is the same "chain" we were very disappointed at the state of this accommodation. The welcome could not...

Our check in was excellent! Mary (filling in) was efficient and friendly. She took more time than usual to discuss walks and restaurants with us. Very nice. The rooms are wonderful; new, spacious, and clean. The feel was more like that of a mini condo than your standard motel. The location is great; not right on the main road, but...

We started our trip to New Zealand at the Rolleston Motel in Thames as a base to explore the Coromandel peninsula. Although basic, it was perfect for what we needed it for. Beds were comfortable and the kitchen and bathroom had all the relevant equipment in it. We had a lovely little terrace and garden out the back too so...

We stayed at the motel before and after riding the Hauraki Rail Trail. The owners were warm, friendly and very accommodating with our individual requests. The room was spacious and has a kitchenette which enabled some home cooked meals. A patio area was pleasant to relax at after the day. There is a nice pool, room access is all ground...

We stayed in the Rolleston motel overnight on our trip to coromandel. The motel is located just a short drive from the town centre where there are plenty of shops and restaurants. The motel staff were friendly and helpful. The room was clean and the carpet appeared new, however furnishings and facilities were dated and in need of an upgrade....

Booked at the last minute without reading any reviews we got lucky . The motel is easy to find and Mary and Dennis were welcoming hosts with clean , modern ( and modernised older ) units . My wife is a confirmed critic of the bedding and linen provided by motels/hotels and I think this is the first time I...
