If you are looking for a night or two in Cromwell, I can fully recommend the Colonial Manor Motel. The room has all of the facilities you need; it is clean and comfortable and close to the Mall where there are restaurants and shops. The new pub, the Five Stags on Barry Avenue is worth a visit!

This place looks expensive but as there were many no vacancy signs out I booked here. The unit I was in was extremely nice with many extras that you only get in expensive hotels AT AN AVERAGE MOTEL PRICE. I would definitely stay here again, friendly staff who suggested the number 7 cafe that I walked across the road to...

Thank you for your review. The two Upstairs Studio units (as described on all our advertising) do not have a kitchenette but do have a fridge,microwave , electric jug and a toaster. All the other 12 units do have a kitchenette.

Easy to find we arrived early but were allowed to book in. Room was very clean, spacious and comfortable. We think this is very high on our best Motels list. Great position handy for shops and restaurants and only a short drive to some very easy going walks. Thank you, wish we could stay longer.

Thank you for your kind review. We will look at perhaps putting a sign in the 2 spa bath rooms requesting consideration for other guests but we realistically cannot control what guests choose to do in the privacy of their rooms.

This motel is located within easy walking distance to the main shops, mall, and restaurants. We walked down to the lake and as far as the historic area but these are a good 30-minute walk. Quiet location. Good facilities in the room with Sky for sports and a dvd and movie library at reception. WiFi worked OK. Some really good...

Better than expected stopover for our family of 5. Very clean, spacious and well set up for family visits. Location opposite main shopping precinct, park and indoor swimming pool added to convenience on a rainy afternoon

Well kept motel with good facilities and a minutes walk from the centre. Very short drive, or possible cycle ride to local (and excellent) vineyards. Good washing and drying facilities. Very helpful hosts.

Really nice people running this place, lovely setting a little out of town, so best to have a car, but it's actually quite nice to be out of the hustle and bustle. Bikes provided if you want to go for a ride. Highly recommended.

Easy to find this motel, and the welcome was awesome thank you. The linen was spotless crisp and lovely to sleep in. Good kitchen facilities if you feel inclined to cook. Roomy and warm. You could not be closer to the mall, good restaurants, bottle store. Great choice to stay here.
