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 stayed here so we could visit Hobbiton which was about 20 minutes drive away, you are also about 3-5 minutes drive from shops and restaurants so great location.
The room was very nicely decorated and a good size, we had a large double bed and a single which were reasonably comfortable but more importantly we had air conditioning!
The owner was very friendly and helpful. Unfortunately we did hear some noise from the road which disturbed us a little but otherwise a nice stay.

Very clean, comfortable Studio unit. Kevin and Tracey were extremely helpful and hospitable. Shower good power and lovely and warm. Towels changed daily which does not always happen nowadays. Motel is surrounded by fields so nice and quiet. There are just seven units so minimal traffic noise from other guests. The Tower Road cycle/walkway is right outside the entrance and you can walk for 80 kms if you wish. Walk to the Firth Tower Museum in 15 minutes and enjoy it. Definitely recommended.

The manager was amazing, so helpful and kind
We had had a death in the family,and he allowed us to check in early. It also wasn't a problem to change to a larger room and extend our stay
The manager checked in with us every day . Nothing was a problem
The rooms were clean and tidy and equipped with everything we needed
We stayed for 7 nights and received a discount which we appreciated

We spent one night here in a studio room. It was comfortable and clean. The two things that made our stay were the amazing garden that you could sit out in (so relaxing) and the welcoming owner. Karen was so friendly and helpful, and you could tell that she would help all guests out with whatever they needed.
Would definitely stay here again.

Excellent rooms. We had two rooms and were well looked after. Even dropped us if 5 minutes away to save us walking. They phoned us straight away that we had left something in our room. So arranged for that to be picked up. Only one thing apparently the coffee. Im not a coffee drinker but a few others were and they recommend change the coffee provided to another brand. Apart from that would recommend to other friends and family

The room was clean and bed comfortable. Although we were in a unit close to the road we sleep well. It was nice to have a couple of chairs and small table to sit outside and read my book, particulary after a day of travelling. The basin is in part of the kitchen on the opposite side to the sink and cabinets. I'd be happy to stay there again.

The perfect place to stop after seeing the Hobbiton film set .
The owners were lovely & full of local knowledge .
I was concerned that it was close to the road , but it was silent after 9.30 & we had a lovely nights sleep . The main town is 5 minuets away and has plenty of places to eat or stock up with provisions .

A clean and comfortable stay with pleasant surroundings and owners.
Despite the site stating no meals available, there was a microwave and toaster and tea and coffee available. No drinking chocolate though!
We had 2 rooms and both were equally comfortable.

The motel oozes comfort and care. Two things of note: my car had several splodges of lime on it from roadworks which the Manager noticed and volunteered to hose off - which he did. Secondly, locking myself out was remedied with good humour. I would definitely stay here again.

when my daughter and i stayed at Tower Raod Motel, we emailed the owner who was absolutely lovely and very very helpful, and she picked us up from the Information Centre in the heart of Mattamatta and dropped us back there when we did our Hobit tour. so I would email her and ask her if she could organise transport for you. i would highly recommend staying there, the scenery is so relaxing and very quiet.
