Set in park like grounds with stunning views of the Central Otago landscape you could be mistaken for thinking you are far out of town. However that is far from the truth, Colonial Manor Motel is located in the very heart of Cromwell township. All our spacious rooms feature large comfortable beds, reliable Wi-Fi and flat screen TV's with Sky 50 Channels and double glazing. Kitchenette facilities are provided in all but two rooms (these are the upstairs studios where a microwave and toaster are available). All rooms are fitted with fridges. Guest laundry facilities are available with a washer and a dryer, or for those with an environmental mindset an outdoor clothes line is located between rooms 8 & 9. We pride ourselves on offering spacious, clean and comfortable smoke free rooms accompanied with a caring attitude and desire to provide a quality service to ensure an all round enjoyable guest experience.

We have just stayed with the wonderful hostess Sheryl at Colonial Manor Motel in Cromwell. The location is superb being close to the bike hire we acquired and the township. Quiet and restful. The outdoor setting is great to relax and unwind in with a glass of the local wine!! Sheryl is the perfect host...warm, welcoming and helpful on every level!!

This was a wonderful find in Cromwell.... close to the town and the staff are very welcoming. The room was just lovely with everything we needed for our one night stay. Very comfortable, great shower and bathroom facilities.. a return will be on our cards for sure.

We stayed in an upstairs studio unit. It was very comfortable with two beds and a good size bathroom. The motel is very close to the main shopping mall in Cromwell so it's in a convenient location. The service was very friendly and I was able to make use of the guest laundry and clothesline. One aspect that could be improved on is there is no sink for doing dishes although you are provided with a washing-up bowl that you can use in the bathroom. It worked but it was slightly awkward.

Fabulous service- Cheryl went above and beyond with her hospitality. Great location, nice and clean and excellent local knowledge. Lovely gardens with outdoor tables to enjoy a late afternoon wine in the sun. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Colonial to anyone visiting Cromwell.

Cheryl and her team are amazing - they are the reason we keep coming back. Cheryl's warmth and friendliness and commitment to ensure your stay is outstanding is a credit to her. We travel to Cromwell just to stay there! Cannot recommend it highly enough.

Fantastic time with Cheryl and her team at this beautiful motel. She went above and beyond to help us with organising the Dunstan Bike ride. A fun place with lots of things to see and do in the surrounding areas. Lovely clean rooms, great facilities-highly recommend 😊

We just did one night in Cromwell on our way to Wanaka, but this was such a lovely place to stay - very clean and tidy, a very warm welcome and so close to Cromwell Mall - would definitely stay here again 😁

We recently stayed a few nights & were very impressed with the comfortable rooms which are also spotless. The owner Cheryl is very obliging, warm & friendly which made our stay even better. We would definitely recommend this motel to family & friends for a stay in Cromwell.

Tried to book a room over the Easter period for 1 night, which they had 1 available, wouldn't accept unless we stayed the 3 night requirement for this period. Only got 2 days off for the weekend, so would have been in Cromwell for 2 days, spent money for tea, breakfast, fuel for boat and car, so other businesses would have benefited. See advertised on television for Kiwi's to support tourism, because of COVID-19 - we tried to do our bit but looks like not good enough for this motel.
