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.

Stayed over the Christmas period on our way to catch the ferry the following day. Room and the location were all great. The quality of the facilities - room decor, towels, cleanliness were all of a very high standard, even better than any 5 star hotel we have stayed in.

But what made our stay memorable was the host who went out of his way to make sure all our needs were met. The attention to detail was incredible whether it was informing us of meal facilities in Foxton, or just going out of his way to make sure we had the best information to make the most of our trip. I have no hesitation in recommending this excellent motel to all my family and friends back home.

This is a small motel but has all facilities needed. It was very well equipped and exceptionally clean. At NZ$120 for two it offered good value for money. Staff very helpful and friendly. It had a little theatre for viewing sports games which was an unexpected addition.

The unit was very clean and tidy. However we were abused and sworn at by the manager on the afternoon of our departure, when we returned from a family function to collect our belongings and vacate the unit. He accused us of things which we absolutely had not done. He had bailed up the wrong person, as we did not even stay in the particular unit he was talking about. We were in a different one.
Based on his attitude and the foul language and profanities he used, I could not recommend this motel.
He needs to take a Kiwi Host course, and learn to manage his temper.

We stopped here at the last minute and were very happy with the price, quality and cleanliness. It's spacious and comfortable with a helpful owner. It is on the main road so has a bit of traffic noise but it quietens down at night.

We spent one night here.

Room was very clean and although it's on a main road we didn't notice traffic noise but we did have windows closed.

Rohan seemed very good although we only met him briefly as he had a bowling tournament on.

Perfect location for Foxton Town. Would go back again.

Just a small note which certainly wasn't the Motels fault but in case other travellers have had the same issue. We stayed Saturday night and there was a party going on somewhere near by with loud music until the early morning. I could hear the bass thumping in the distance.

What a lovely unit and motel. We arrived very late after a long trip from South Island and found this lovely motel in Foxton. The unit is great, spacious, clean, and comfortable. The owner was awesome, set up the washing machine for us to use and made us feel very much at home. Thank you. Guy and Debra Russell

Stayed one night while heading north. Everything was clean and we'll cared for.
The room had everything we needed including AC
Only a short walk to the shops.
It is on the main road road but the road noise it not bad at all.
