One of the best motel experiences we've had in a long time! Fabulous hosts, the property is immaculate and rooms spacious with every detail thought of to ensure a great stay. Noise was not an issue on SH3, infact location was perfect. Thank you!

Very clean and comfortable / modern units with very good heating arrangements. My parents stayed in the next unit and also found it to be very pleasant and comfortable. Would definitely recommend to...

This is our second visit to this Motel. Can't fault it. Spotlessly clean and very comfortable. Yes it is next to SH3 but this was not a problem for us. Would loved to have used the bikes available but sadly ran out of time. We walked to Cobb N Co and had a lovely meal. Would definitely stay here again.

We stayed her on our wedding night, we arrived at about 9pm and there was a light left on for us in the unit which was nice of the owners. The studio unit was lovely, very spacious, and comfortable, and spotless. We had to leave at about 6.30 am as we had an early flight to catch, I would have...

After leaving our ultra-modern accommodations in Taupo, the Lockwood Manor appeared at first sight to be a step down. However, the owner was very efficient and pleasant, the bed was comfortable, the entire place was very clean, and the free wi-fi is always a nice treat. As another reviewer mentioned, we were surprised that a major road bordered the property,...

I booked a stay at Lockwood Manor based on the excellent reviews in trip advisor. I don't know why everyone else forgot to mention that SH3 runs directly alongside.... It would have been nice to have been warned. Otherwise - this is a very well run, very clean motel with excellent facilities, the managers go out of the their way...

We stayed overnight after having driven the "Forgotten Highway". Check in easy and friendly, room very clean and exactly what we needed. Close to the city, walked to a bar/restaurant for dinner. Check out just as easy.

Our Queen Studio was roomy, clean and comfortable. The internet worked first time, every time and 2 computers were no problem. Bath robes were a bonus and the breakfast was huge and arrived hot to our room. Kelly-Anne was very helpful with suggestions for restaurants and entertainment and nothing was too much trouble. We will be back on our next...

On Christmas Eve day and Christmas day we stayed at Lockwood Manor.
