We enjoyed our stay at Coachman Motel. We arrived late and the owners had shut our curtains and turned on the heater which was really appreciated. A nice tidy room which had everything we needed for our stay.

Good overnight accomodation on State hwy 1 in Taihape. Not very quiet with highway and railway traffic. Older facility though very clean. Staff very personable and helpful. Very reasonably priced. We had finished a long day and enjoyed the hospitality.

The Coachman Motel is an impressive place to stay, from the immaculately clean room and bathroom, comfortable bed and amazing staff who met my difficult reservation after being delayed for three days because of a closed highway. Thank you and you deserve your awards. Impressed!
