Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

My partner and I stayed at the Pioneer Motel for two nights (31 December 2013 and 1 January 2014). We both had a fantastic stay and felt very welcomed by Brent and Barbara. On arrival Barbara showed us various activities that were on offer on the region and (as it was New Years Eve) named a couple of pubs were we could visit to see the new year in.

We enjoyed a 2 bedroom unit which had a decent sized lounge and practical kitchen area. The kitchen came with everything we needed to cook simple meals on the stove top. Perfect! The bathroom is small but perfectly functional with great shower pressure.

We think this motel is great value for money and a great location to explore the small township of collingwood and/or drive out to see farewell spit etc.

Absolutly brilliant, spacious and clean apatments in a lovely and very friendly location.
Family run buisness, both mr and mrs bright were very welcoming and made our honeymoon complete. We stayed at the beginning of march 2013 and returned at the end of march and we arrived very late at night so a key and milk was left for us. Will definatly return to them and would highly reccomend, they even advised us on all the best places to visit and were really lovely people, big thanks to mr and mrs bright once again.

The night we stayed was the Rugby world cup final so the hosts let us know how to watch on our tv and that the local across the road would be open.Basic unit but had everything we needed and was clean! Price was very reasonable as well.We had also booked and paid for 4 but only 3 of us made it and they paid us the extra person $25 back, I said don't worry but she insisted, lovely people.

We just spent one night but once we saw our room we figured we better keep this place in mind if we ever get back to Collingwood. We have been travelling all around NZ the last several months and this place had a better equipped kitchenette than most of the places we have been staying a week or more. The room was clean and tidy and very comfortable and definitely had everything we needed for our one night.

We stayed at the Pioneer Motel in Collingwood. It was a good value in Collingwood. The room had a nice kitchenette with small refrigerator that was adequate for our breakfast food. Several nice restaurants within walking distance of the motel.

The rooms are spacious, very clean and comfortable. The kitchen is well appointed. The motel is conveniently located in the heart of Collingwood. It is within a short walk to the beach, eating establishments, the museum, playground, the wharf and shops. The owners are friendly and helpful with information on local attractions.

As we had to make an early start for a booked tour in Collingwood we were looking for somewhere to stop overnight. This motel proved an ideal choice. We were welcomed with smiles by Barbara and our rooms were spotlessly clean and equipped with everything we needed. The beds were comfortable with good bed linen, there was plenty of good hot water and soft towels. And its location in the heart of Collingwood was ideal. We would definitely use this motel again.

We have stayed in this motel several times. since the last stay it has been upgraded. The beds are very comfortable and plenty of space in the lounge and kitchen area. There is a hot water cupboard with hooks for drying wet clothing which we found very handy. Its an ideal situation for the café, tavern and other amenities. there are interesting and historic features to see around that area plus a trip out to Farewell Spit by car or the Farewell Spit tours is excellent. We found the sofa rather low now we are older so put pillow on the seat to give it a boost. Maybe something to keep in mind for future renovations. The shower has always been small but you get used to it.
Barbara was very friendly and helpful.
