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.

Awesome place to stay.
The rooms were nice and clean, plenty of room and access to a pool and hot tub is a bonus!
Having on site washing as well as a communal kitchen was brilliant for our large group of 18 people. plenty of room to use within the camp area so the teens could burn some energy and relax as well.
The staff were super helpful and friendly are super accommodating
Would highly recommend staying here as it has everything you need at an affordably price.

I lived at the hotel for about 9 months from July 2021 in my motorhome- and I LOVED being there....a short walk to the shops, a shorter walk to the river with interesting walks and swimmind holes. Only about half an hour to Palmerston North and very easy to find.
The owners are doing up the place very nicely and are very approachable and helpful with everything. They are quick to maintain order among the permanent patrons and the emergency housing clients, making sure the atmosphere is comfortable and safe for everyone.
I wouldnt hesitate to recommend the motel, remembering is it being done up and there is more to be done but I have no doubt its going to become a really really nice spot and the people are wonderful.

A great location for our 1 night stay after an early morning Interislander ferry crossing. Close to town for cafes and eating places.
Very good service provided during checkin and when I needed somewhere to leave my caravan overnight while we used the motel they were very accommodating.
Overall a pleasant experience.

I felt very comfortable and welcome here, staying in one of the Standard Cabins after a day of biking through bad weather. Very friendly, relaxed and helpful staff and even though I arrived a bit early, I was welcome to check-in (and leave my bags with the owner until I continued my trip the next afternoon). The cabin and other facilities, such as bathroom and kitchen, were very clean (I could even smell it, which was great). Bathroom is obviously not the newest, and might well need some renovations in the future, but clean and the hot shower was great!! Some guests who are staying more long-term we're very friendly and I had great chats with them.
Only recommendation would be to stock up the utensils in the kitchen a little bit more (fine for me, as I had my own stuff).
Thanks for a great stay!

Lovely spacious unit for me and my dog. The pressure from the shower head was perfect and made the shower really enjoyable. The motel is surrounded by cows and is in a rural setting which is nice. Would stay again if in area.

Extremely clean with good facilities, we stayed in a 1 bedroom suite which was excellent value. Well positioned and although close to SH1 because of the double glazing was not too noisy. The staff were excellent and very friendly. The pool and spa area was well organised and kept immaculately.

We stayed in Bulls for a sports event and there are not a lot of choices in this town. The unit had 2 bedrooms a spacious lounge dining kitchen. One small TV in lounge full oven and plates cutlery etc. Only 1 large old nonstick fry pan and 1 large pot to cook with wasn't so good. Shower in wheelchair access bathroom had very low pressure and the drain was blocked and water pooled all over floor creating a large flood.while it appeared very clean an investment in decent beds and furnishings and cookware with a large screen tv would make the $140. Per night more palatable.

Stayed for two nights over Easter 2021 in a cabin and it was OK for what I paid. Handy location, easy parking and laid back.

Cabin(17) needs some changes:
Curtain over the frosted window in the door as the outside light makes it seem like the sun is shining.

Smaller bed is needed so the power point can be accessed and the provided fan heater can be safely used. Will stay again but likely in a studio if more than one night.

Very clean and tidy but extremely noisey with trucks shaking the loft in which has a very unsafe ladder up to it. Not ideal for kids. Had a nice pool and spa. Window in bedroom broken so couldn't shut so truck noise kept us awake all night. Been to 3 different places over last week and all of them need to see if they would stay in there own places and shower in there blocks
