I have been staying at the Celtic Motel for many year's. Both for Sled Dog Races and Waitarere Beach, a great place to run the dog's and I just love the drift wood. The Celtic is very easy to find quite great staff what more can be said. Visiting Foxton area STAY AT THE CELTIC A++++++

Stayed here with 3 other father's and their kids on a mx trip. The owners were very friendly and helpful. The rooms were immaculate and clean. The outside surrounds were very clean and tidy. The beds were comfy and the kids loved the free wifi and the 50 sky channels. Will definitely be going back and would recommend this motel...

The room was spacious and spotless. Easy to find and with being off the main room, very quiet. The owner was very helpful in recommending a couple of places for dinner, offering to ring to make a booking. Overall, a good place to stop overnight, as part of our journey heading north.

Booked on behalf of staff travelling with client. The motel couldn't have been more helpful with the booking and the staff who stayed said the room and motel were lovely to stay at. Accommodated a late check out which was much appreciated and the price for the room was great

We were late getting there and they still went out of their way to find us a suitable room. Very quiet location. Nice and tidy layout inside and out. Was a pity it never had a hot plate but we made do with takeaways and using the microwave. Thanks.

Would highly recommend this Motel - spotlessly clean and very quiet. Obliging owners - nothing was a problem. Nice tidy gardens and ample parking. The Motel is set off the main road with a rural aspect so is very quiet. Beds are very comfortable and kitchen is adequately stocked. Would definitely stay here again.

Stayed at the Celtic motel while attending an event at the racecourse. Very impressed with the standard and service. Rooms were comfortable, super clean and tidy and Paul was lovely. As a bonus its in a quiet, but convenient location so not bothered by traffic noise. Definitely recommend.

Thank you for your review. It makes a huge point of difference, being located 400m off SH1 thus having no traffic noise.
