The room was comfortable and well equipped to eat in if desired. The manager was extremely friendly and helpful. Interesting town was a good halfway point when traveling between the east and west coasts.

Our only regret with this property is that we weren't staying longer, just a one night to break a long journey. The room was very spacious, spotlessly clean, very well equipped and just what we hoped for. If we were staying again in the area we would be back!

Thank you for your review. Hope you can visit Cromwell again soon and perhaps plan to stay a little longer and enjoy the treats this part of the country has to offer both locals and tourists.

Great stay. Tidy and comfortable stay in a quiet motel. Across the road are the shops, cafe's and bars. Close to the winery's and a simple drive to either Queenstown and Wanaka. Summer or Winter this part of the country is worth a visit.

I have stayed at this hotel several times either alone or with the family. and reasonably priced. The studio room for this trip had two bed, a great shower and was warm and comfortable. The owner was happy with me coming up late from Dunedin. All for 130 dollars. Rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable. Cromwell is a great spot...

Thank you for your positive comments. We have been surprised that Cromwell doesn't attract more skiers over the Ski Season as we are quite handy to all the Southern fields and as you correctly point out our local Cromwell motel prices are significantly better. Hope to see you again next season. Thanks for choosing to stay with us.

Stayed here for 3 nights in winter whilst travelling around the South Island. The room was beautifully presented, the owners were absolutely great, welcoming and interesting people. The units are set in beautifully maintained grounds. Cromwell is a great place to stay and so handy to travelling around Central Otago. If you like crowds of tourists, crazy traffic, almost vertical...

Thank you for your kind comments. We are hearing more and more people with similar feelings about Cromwell and of course that is why we came here ourselves over 6 years ago.

Having stayed at this property a number of times over the past ten years, I would highly recommend the experience. Friendly manager, clean modern unit, all facilities working, handy to supermarket, shopping precinct, restaurants, hotel, golf course, everything required. Park the car and relax.

We stayed at this hotel for only one night and could have easily spent mutlple nights. It was so obvious that the owner takes a great deal of pride in his hotel and worried that every detail was taken care of. The rooms were amazing with every amenity that one could think of. the bathroom was extremely clean and the...

We were so stoked with the Colonial Manor- we were a late decision business trip over Easter weekend, and we hit the jackpot with this motel. We were blown away with the Hosts, Tony and Jenny- incredibly lovely people. The motel was spacious, clean, and well thought out! It did feel really homely, and nice touches with the lollies every...
