There are much better motels in town. The rooms here are very tired and quite small. The atmosphere is a bit dire - all concrete. The location is quite convenient Service is fine. Better to head to nearby cafes for breakfast

I recently booked this motel for a sports team who were attending an event in Masterton. Jo was very accommodating of the needs of our team members and helped to streamline the booking process as we were booking multiple units. Nothing was too much trouble, and she gave us a flat rate per person for our 2-night stay. The 2-... More

A group of friends stayed here last weekend for a wedding, we arrived a night earlier than our friends but were late. Arrived to find the light and heat pump on, staff were very friendly and units were clean and comfortable. Great spot so close to supermarket and shops. Highly recommend this motel.

The rooms and cleanliness are awesome but the bathroom was the only problem. The staff are friendly and offered to show us the room. The room had large space and had a kitchen to cook in the middle of the wild. The bathroom at night was terrible. When I woke up I found lots of dead moths on the floor... More

We stayed for one night on our journey north. We picked the motel because they had 2 bed apartments available at a good price. The rooms were quiet, clean and spacious. The staff were very welcoming and helpful. The motel was convenient for shops and restaurants. Would recommend for a stopover.

This was such a love!y motel. The host was so friendly, suggesting a trip out to castle point which was lovely. The unit was clean, modern and very comfortable. There is a pool on site which we didn't get time to use. We would stay here again if in the Masterton area.

Stayed just one night. Good value for money. Host was helpful, particularly when we had a minor issue with a leaky air conditioning unit. Room provided for all facilities one would need but felt it would benefit from having some net curtains at the main windows.
