Beautiful room and friendly guy on reception. Really nice bed and great shower pressure. If being really picky I would say the sink is too small to be practical to wash dishes in. But not a major. Loved our stay.

Advertised”free wifi” but aces / reception was at best poor. Only good wifi access was around the main entrance and communal lounge. This needs serious attention given huge choice of other motels nearby. Tv channels and selection also poor, which with poor wifi does not make this property great value.

Fawlty towers revisited! No one there to meet and greet - couldn’t raise anyone for ages! Rang bell, rang phone walked all around whole complex but no one there! Finally raised someone! Website indicated there was a bar and restaurant but alas NO! Been closed for months! No champagne glasses in room, no cups/mugs for tea/coffee, no remotes for TV! Paint job on deck lazy! Rolled but no cutting in so paint on walls etc. screws holding up fence a joke! Half of them didn’t make it to the stud! But clean, nice room, great shower! Disappointed ☹️ not what we expected!

Clean tidy and comfortable.

Pros: As above
Cons: Nothing
Location: Masterton is a nice clean and tidy Wairarapa town servicing the farming sector.
Great place to stay, nice decor, clean and comfortable but the best part was the friendliness and hospitality of the staff upon arrival.

A Hidden Gem

Pros: A high quality place to stay.
Cons: The plain entrance, car park and gardens don't do justice to the lovely hotel inside.
The facade of the hotel that greets you doesn't do justice to the quality inside. The room was huge, comfortable, quiet, tastefully decorated and the bathroom modern. The hosts were very welcoming & helpful. Wouldn't hesitate to stay again and to recommend it to anyone.

The place is tired and needs an upgrade to modernise it. Whilst it was ok for a bed for the night, I wouldn't recommend it for a stay longer than a couple of nights.
