This place was very good for a week long stay as we were attending the three day Wings over Wairarapa air show. All the advantages are: - single floor motel with no stairs to climb, suitable for wheelchair access (and that includes the shower) - parking outside your door, and not visible from the street - situated on a main...

I stayed here on the way through to Wellington with my parents the beds were very uncomfortable so soft that they could hardly stay on if one rolled the other would fall off. Someone's shoes left under the bed which was weird. Very dated looking and old smelling. Didn't feel clean and could have done with a fresh paint.

Great stay at this very clean, comfortable motel. Very good value and close to shopping and eating places. Great service and helpful staff. Also great value. Senior reduction which is nice. All units appeared very fresh and good linen and bedding, cooking facilities and small fridge.

This place offered good value for money. The room was well equipped with a kitchenette, large bathroom, a comfortable bed and free wifi. The staff was nice and helpful, the recommended a couple restaurants nearby and they were just right about their choice. Only stayed for 1 night, but wouldn't mind staying longer.

Friendly staff reduced tariff when asked. Neat and clean accommodation with kitchenette so stayed another night. Laundry facilities which is always a plus for us. Close to supermarket and eateries. Parking is tight but manageable.

Stayed at Colonial Cottage in room 8 which was disappointing and well below basic. The room requires redecorating with a bit of colour like the other better rooms in the complex. The bed is well over 20 years old, the pillows are thin and neither provide a comfortable nights sleep. The crockery also requires an update. If we weren't booked...

Wouldnt recommend. Booked online through their website. Quoted a price which I booked. Upon arrival I was charged an extra $60. When we showed the motel the booking we were told the price was wrong on the internet and wouldnt change the price. Beds were way too soft. Room was too hot. Not told about free wifi. Should have booked...

Very friendly owner. She was prompt and efficient and provided us a map of the area and directions to Castlepoint without us asking. Had a smile on her face all the time! We had a unit with a bedroom and 2 beds in the living room. Plenty of space for the 3 of us. Kitchen was adequately equipped and the...

We only stayed one night in Masterton and did not have much expectation for the motel we picked. Location Location is great - near take-outs and supermarket. Room Basic with everything you needed, including a well-equipped kitchenette. The heater was small and was not capable of warming the whole room. The bed came with heat pad, but it only warmed...
