Celtic Motel is nestled in amongst the sunny Horowhenua township of Foxton, giving it a hint of 'country' and ensuring it is very peaceful and quiet, yet it is conveniently situated just 400m off SH 1. This comfortable Foxton gem in the beautiful lower west coast of the North Island is where friendly hospitality is guaranteed. We are only 1.5km from all the amenities to be found at the Foxton town centre, and just a 10-minute drive to Foxton Beach and the Manawatu River estuary, a wetland of international importance. Nature abounds around Foxton with endless outdoor experiences including walkways, cycleways and tramping tracks in the Tararua Forest Park. We are the ideal place to stay if you are catching the Interisland ferry and it is just a 30-minute drive to Palmerston North. Book direct via this site for the best rates!

We stayed just for one night with two children and our little dog. The owners were super friendly and helpful, and even posted our daughter’s soft toy back to us. Beds were comfy, room was clean and we’d definitely stay again.

My husband and daughter stayed for one night. They both commented on the cleanliness of the rooms, the very comfortable beds, and the friendly owners. With this being just off the main road it was very quiet with a lovely country outlook. Highly recommend and will definitely be staying again!!

I booked this motel after a google search. So impressed, friendly greeting at reception and the host engaged with my children. Room was a premium room, large and extremely clean. Heater had been put on for our arrival, milk, juice, cookies and chocolate all supplied in the room. Awesom large TV with 50 sky channels. Can’t fault the motel and will stay again next time through. Thanks.

We stayed at The Celtic Motel in March of 2020. We were met at check in by Leslie, one of the owners, who walked us to our unit with a pint of milk for coffee and chatted with us for some time. The room was very clean, roomy, and comfortable. The bathroom was roomy and clean with all the amenities we needed. We had dishes to eat with and Leslie directed us to a local supermarket where we picked up dinner. The bed was comfortable and clean. We would definitely recommend The Celtic Motel when passing through Foxton, New Zealand.

Very comfortable well presented motel. Layout of room gave degree of privacy within the one room. Clean and attractively set up. Good basic facilities but no cook top. Attractive garden to sit in out the back as well as table outside the front. Breakfast available. Owners pleasant and easy to deal with. Quiet being away from the main road
