We had a family Unit lovely and spacious, clean & comfortable. Kitchenette was just what we needed. Bathroom modern and extremely clean. The motel has lovely gardens and plenty of parking. Very happy with our choice.

Came down in 20m truck & transporter unit, the motel had enough room for me to park it without problems. Room was good & the staff were great, would definitely recommend this place for those on the road.

Stayed one night after coming off the rail trail. I love these older motel types -good solid walls which block out noise. The motel was clean, large, comfortable and had everything we needed including cooking equipment. We were greeted by a lady who was looking after the motel for a few days and she was great - helped us out... More

This is a real old fashioned NZ motel. Some work had been done on our bathroom but overall you would not see too many changes from 50 years ago. The grounds are large and it's near Cromwell's heritage centre which is most attractive. There are considerably worse places to stay but it's more of a night stop on the way... More

We stayed here when we couldn't get accommodation in Queenstown and were nervous about what it would be like but we were pleasantly surprised. Although the place is a bit dated, particularly in the bathroom fittings, the rooms were large and airy and the beds were comfortable. It was very clean and serviced daily. The kitchen facilities were good and... More

This motel is perfectly placed in Cromwell as a hub for visiting all the towns of Central Otago. 3 minutes drive from the shopping centre, cafes and bars, the motel is not new but has all necessary facilities and nothing is too much trouble for hosts Colin and Debbie.
