I've stayed here a few times now and I'm happy with it. Plenty of space. One common room with two beds and a small kitchenette. Ensuite shower and WC. All nice and clean as usual. No cooker just a microwave. Usual crockery etc. heat pump and ceiling fan. Good level of friendly service. Nice and quiet place to stay.

We stayed at Te Aroha Motel in 2012 so knew what to expect. However, the motel has new owners and we were pleasantly surprised at all the changes they have made. Light and airy units with new linen, new heatpumps and i think the bathroom had been upgraded too. It was all very clean and tidy. The beds were really...

Friendly owners and comfortable accommodation. Just there for 1 night. The unit had single beds - but very comfortable. The room was dated, but perfectly adequate for a short stay. Had a great dinner at Austins Bar and Grill. Scallops were absolutely fat and yummy. Friendly owner and staff.

The moteliers are friendly and the rooms are clean, light and quiet. We strolled up the short distance for a soak in the local Spas and visited the i-site a vouple of doors down. There is plenty to do all within easy walking distance. Plenty if eateries close and supermarket across the road. We would certainly recommend this motel.

Motel is right in town so you can walk everywhere. Next to spa baths complex. Reasonably priced motel and good size room. Te Aroha is a lovely little village. We were going to stay one night when passing through but ended up staying two nights.
