The Charlton is very basic but absolutely serves its purpose. A little outside of town, which isn’t really a problem with a car or good weather if you don’t mind a bit of a walk. Rooms are simple but functional. Beds aren’t the most comfortable. Bathrooms are clean. TV has Sky. Wifi is pretty patchy. Staff are absolutely lovely and can’t do more to help you or provide you with everything you need for your stay. Dunno if I would stay here again but I was happy for the 2 nights I was here with my wife and our 9 month old baby.

We spent one night when passing through Gore. The unit was clean and warm and we were greeted in a friendly manner. The average rating is more of a reflection of the units condition - we were in one of the older units. They are doing them up so once they are done it will be nicer. There was a bit of road/train noise but wasn't too bad.

Gore was a stopover place for us between Duendin and Te Anau. The motel was easy to find just off the highway. We were greeted warmly and made to feel welcome. Our room was modern and very spacious. Wifi was free and great quality which we loved being International travellers. The armchairs were so comfortable we could've slept in them. The bed was also comfortable and provided us with a great nights sleep. There was a full kitchen including an oven which we loved because we could soon a full meal for ourselves. There was a fridge which was a good size for our food. The only minor downside was that ventilation in the kitchen was a little poor so we ended up with a fair bit of steam from our cooking in the room. The bathroom was high end especially for the price. The pressure and temperature of the water were fantastic and made for a relaxing shower. The room was very clean and it is clear that a lot of love and care goes into these rooms. The carpark outside our room was also very handy. Can't fault this place at all. Would definitely come back.

We just arrived into Gore and the T.I. office found the room for us. Very happy with it. Had everything we needed, was nice and large and clean and warm with a comfortable bed. We had a unit around the back and it was nice and quite. Stayed 2 nights and could not complain about anything. Had a laundry , and the young man, Andrew, who checked us in was very helpful, looking up information for us. All units are ground floor which rates highly with us. No complaints at all.

We stayed here for one night but liked it so much we came back again on our way home. The units are very spacious with comfy beds and armchairs. The separate kitchen had a full sized oven so we utilized this by cooking our evening meal there. Great bathrooms with high pressure showers. The staff were welcoming and friendly. Would thoroughly recommend this motel to others. On the outskirts of town it is very easy to locate.
