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.

We were amazed at the thought that had gone into making our stay great. Beds were really comfortable and snuggly. We had everything we needed to make our stay great. The units are well appointed and clean. There was a library of books outside our unit. Yay! AND the complimenary toiletries in our bathroom went way beyond our expectation. Body wash ( a large bottle) - Tea Tree shampoo ( a large bottle) - Hair spray ( I had forgotten mine, what a find!) Cotton swabs, tissues, plasters, were only some of the complimentary toiletries. Just these little touches made my stay. I want to say a huge thank you to the owners. You made our stay wonderful, a home away from home! I will send you some more books to add to your library.

I have just completed the Alps2Ocean Cycle trail with a friend and we stayed at the Kurow Motel as we passed through Kurow. We arrived after 8 hours cycling exhausted - the owner greeted us very enthusiastically (she was about to ring Cycle Journeys as she was worried that something had happened to us!). She had the heat pump on, the unit was spacious (like a small house) and had everything you could need. She told us to sleep in the next day and check out late if we wanted to as she didn't have the room booked. Unbelievably great service.

We stayed her over Easter weekend. Owner was so helpful and obliging, couldn’t have more helpful, fitted us in after a cancellation which was brilliant. She goes out of her way to help.
Room where older but scrupulously clean. We had a two bedroom unit with 2 singles in one room and a queen in the other plus lounge and kitchen and bathroom.
It has little touches which makes it very Homely, little moisturiser etc, cosy blanket in lounge to get you warm if you wished.
Even Easter eggs left for the whole family!
Outside was a nice with outdoor eating area and heaps of room for parking
We were very happy and would de go back

We cycled into Kurow as part of the A2O cycle trail, and were given a warm welcome by Justine the owner. Although this Motel is older it is obviously cared for both inside and out. It was very clean, had a good shower, my sister and I had a bedroom each and the living/lounge area with a seperate kitchen suited our needs for a one night stay perfectly

The apartment, kitchen, and bathroom were spotless. Beds very comfortable. Units arranged for a good view and away from streets. Stayed while riding Alps to Ocean trail. Bought groceries at store a short walk from motel and cooked dinner in kitchen. An amazing service from a very small community. Thank you.

We were 2 couples and the family unit we had was fantastic and roomy, and very clean. It was sunny and warm and had the most comfortable beds. Great night. Close to the hotel for a meal etc. Close to the road, but Kurow is a sleepy town at night so were not at all troubled by any road noise.

Nice friendly welcome but would be the oldest (not in a quaint way)accommodation we stayed in on our 5 day trip. The price was the same as the others but the standard below, the rooms are not retro they are just old and tired however they are clean.

This is an old motel in a small town on the Alps to Ocean Cycle Trail.
The rooms and fittings are old and the motel could be described as quaint.
But our stay was good value, we were comfortable, the room was clean, well equipped and clean.
the welcome was warm and friendly.
The motel isn't the ritz and doesn't pretend to be but for a couple of weary cyclists it was everything we needed.

Response from KurowMotels, Manager at Kurow Motel
Responded 27 May 2014
Thanks for the review we are pleased you enjoyed your stay, the motels are well aged we do try to concentrate on the cleanliness of the units, we are happy you found them clean and comfortable, some guests like the roominess of the units and the décor does appeal to mature guests who have a fondness for the retro look :). We do hope you enjoyed the completion of your cycle journey on the alps to ocean trail . Andrea Thomas Motel Manager

We'd originally intended to stay in Dunedin for four nights but it was booked out due to the rugby so we decided to take a drive over the Lindis Pass. We had hoped to make it as far as Oamaru but I was too tired so stopped where we were, Kurow.

Kurow Motel is very basic but had everything we needed and was reasonably priced. The separated unit was very much like an old granny-flat, but large. The kitchen was particularly aged, but everything including the microwave all worked fine. Nice view of the hill behind the hotel from the kitchen window.

We walked to the pub for dinner, the motel is close to town. Very quiet night.

When booking they took great care to meet our needs. When we had a nightmare changing dates twice and when they understood our position they were very helpful. We were very grateful for the old fashioned service.
