We stayed here on our way to dog trials in Masterton. Easy and convenient for us as we were travelling from Ohakune and Palmerston North was a good option. Convenient too as we went to Masterton via the Pahiatua Track. Clean and comfortable and good on them for waiting up for us as it was almost 10pm before we arrived... More

Good points: 1. The room is very clean (and at the end of the day, that is the most important thing on an overnight business trip) 2. The host (gentleman) was very receptive. I unexpectedly ended up in Palmerston North for the night and called one hour before arriving to book a room. On the phone they were co-operative and... More

Nice motel wee bit dated but very handy location and great hosts. I had a room off the main road which was really quite quiet - maybe rooms nearer main road would be noisier? This is a one level motel - no carrying bags upstairs

As last minute late night callers we were very surprised by the quality of this accommodation which backs onto a delightful small park . We sat late in the evening thinking of nothing watching nothing go by and woke the following morning refreshed to leave early. They coffee and tea provided far surpassed some four star accommodations we'd stayed in

I was booked to stay here for work as my regular motel was full. Rooms are very small and cramped, the room I was originally booked into, the bed was very soft however I was moved at request. However being told by the host that was his bed before he moved in there creeped me out a bit. The rooms... More

This is a pleasant property - no frills but suitable for me as a business traveler. The owners/managers are really friendly and ensure that the units are extremely clean. The motel is within 15 - 20 minutes from the town centre.

Our choice was driven by the pet friendly offering. Just remember you actually need to contact them for permission first (that note is not obvious on the booking site and the owner was quite grumpy with me about that). Rooms are clean and pleasant enough (with double bed in one and two singles in the other bedroom). Decent sized sitting... More

Ok, so I've seen some good reviews, and perhaps if you don't have to make changes to your booking he might be ok, but our experience of Wayne was awful. Here's our story... I originally booked through booking.com. My card subsequently expired and so I called to sort out, he had already booked the room to someone else, so said... More
