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.

I had a studio unit, which was nothing but outstanding. It was super clean and tidy and had all the essential things required for my stay. The bed was really comfy. The check-in and check-out was super friendly and Mark and Anne could not have been better hosts. I've stayed previously and this visit did not disappoint. I would recommend to others that this is a gem of a motel to stay at.
