The rooms here are great, with kitchen, hot tub etc - really well maintained and clean. The location is fine if you have transport, about 30 minutes on foot from the town centre. The owners, Gary and Sheila, were very helpful and hospitable, and made us extremely welcome. The roses around the motel are beautiful too, and add to the... More

Was suggested this by colleague who had arrived half hour before me. Was a bit worried about gear in vehicle (multiple laptops, GPS Surveying equipment, tools etc), trailer, and was told to park parallel to footpath. I was given Unit 13 which I thought was OK until I popped my head in my colleagues' room, unit 12. Thirteen in comparison... More

Three days here was too long but for a short visit this place would work. The service was good. The rain made for a longer stay inside and we never had the chance to use the spa outside. The room heater didn't work well but the owner brought a portable one which heated the place well. The kitchen area is... More

Dated, mouldy curtains in bedroom, ripped curtains at front door, bathroom in bad state on walls. Paid a rate of approx $150 per night for one bedroom with outside hot tub and was rated 4 star but...

Reached Rose Court Motel after a tiring day's drive. Well located on the main street with easy access to food joints. Thai place nearby was open late into the night (by NZ standards!). Owner, a grumpy old man, wanted us to check out at the earliest ignoring the fact that we had hardly spent 10 hours there.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Rose Court Motel. Were made to feel very welcome. The staff were very helpful and booked a few events for us. The place was very clean and we enjoyed using the spa bath.

Facilities are excellent and the rooms quiet, just off the bedroom in a small private courtyard you have your own spa, this has lots of hot water and is the ideal place top... More

I really enjoy staying here, the husband and wife team that run it is awesome and couldnt ask for friendlier service. Love the studio units as we like to cook our dinners and breakfast when we go away. We stayed here for christmas eve and christmas day. Really nice place! :) Gabby Irwin

We found the Rose Court motel to be a bit run down. It needs a lot of modernising inside. However the bed was comfortable. We decided to stay somewhere else on our way back home and got a really nice motel up the road for only $10 more than this place.
