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.

Gohil A wrote a review Feb 2024
Navi Mumbai, India11 contributions18 helpful votes
"While the rooms at this motel remain a comfortable choice, my recent stay was marred by challenges that need attention. Unfortunately, the previous review addressing WiFi issues seemed to have sparked an uncomfortable interaction with the owner during my visit. Such experiences detract significantly from an otherwise pleasant stay and can create an unwelcoming atmosphere. The conduct during this interaction left much to be desired. As a frequent traveler, I've rarely encountered such confrontational behavior from management in the industry. In an effort to be fair, I chose not to post the previous review, hoping to observe improvements during subsequent visits. However, my attempt to make a new reservation was met with disappointment, as the management denied the booking without offering specific reasons. This experience has left me questioning the professionalism of the management and their commitment to addressing concerns. Despite these issues, the rooms themselves remain a viable option for accommodation. However, for a motel to truly excel, it is crucial to foster a positive and guest-friendly environment. An improvement in the handling of guest concerns, open communication, and transparent booking procedures would undeniably enhance the overall experience for patrons."

Some people are not suited to hospitality. Inconsistent and neurotic, c card validation done in the carpark due to C19 restrictions (yes in Sep23). Led to over charge errors poorly resolved. WiFi poor

Arrived late afternoon and was welcomed by Mark. Motel room was clean and tidy. Shower was lovely. Heaps of parking. Nice little gem of a place if needing just the basics. Close to kfc and other fast food joints if you like those places. Highly recommend this motel as they are the BEST in tokoroa as told by locals as well. Thank you Mark and Anne for great hospitality. Will stay again if we are in the area.

Fantastic one of the better motels I've had the pleasure to stay in. The rooms are spacious with comfy beds. They have a big screen TV with Apple TV and Netflix. The room was immaculately clean. Directly across the road are the Tokoroa heated pools, the kids loved it.

I found Anne very friendly, helpful, and great to talk to from the emails and phone calls before booking. We were very, very happy with our room. The photos do not do the rooms justice, the decor is excellent, and the bedrooms, kitchen and bathroom are immaculate. Very clean indeed. Clifton Court Motel was very easy to find, being on the main road and very close to town and where our appointment was. Although the Motel is on the main road, it was a tranquil stay. There was also a trampoline and swing to keep my daughter occupied and Lucy the cat she loved. If we had to go to Tokoroa again, Clifton Court Motel is the only place we will stay and the only place we would recommend to anybody and everybody. Thank you very much.

Well, I'd not hesitate to recommend highly this Motel,it's owners and staff. All were very professioanl and friendly, while manintaing the necessary covid etiquettes. Simply kept to a very high standard, the grounds were brilliantly manicured, though, the addition of a park bench/seat under the trees at the front of the lawn might afford some weary travellers a nice cool spot from which to watch the world go by. My not expensive room was the equal if not better than many motels, hotels I've stayed at. I could not fault the comfort of my wonderful big bed, great water pressure in the fastidiously sparkling shower, along with plenty of soaps and shampoo's. It is obvious that the owners of this establish care passionately about ther guests needs and strive to set high standards of cleanliness, presentation and service. Seriously, I'd rate my stay at The Clifton Court Motel in Tokoroa New Zealand as amongst the very best our small country has to offer. Go here!

The location was perfect for our activity being through the back gate to the stadium no need to take your car. The rooms were spotless and comfortable. All contact with the owners was pleasant, helpful and patient. A group of 28 people takes a bit of organising but was done without any trouble. Would not hesitate to rebook when next in the area. This was our second stay.
