Good clean & comfortable motel - reasonable range of crockery & cutlery - TV modern but only a few channels - no "Prime or Choice" channels - No free internet - road noise minimal when considering that it is on a main highway - didn't trouble me.

I would stay here again. The room was attractive,airy and clean. The bed was very comfortable. Location was good. Although the room was placed up near the road it was okay with regard to noise, however when a heavy transport vehicle passed by, the whole room shuddered. This was not a problem because the traffic dropped off early in the...

I found this motel to be extremely noisy being right on highway 4 in Te Kuiti. The unit I stayed in (unit 1) vibrated everytime a truck went past with the room and fittings shaking and rattling. About the same as a richter 3 earthquake. I was still awake at 2.30am wondering when the traffic would stop. I think I...

We stayed at the motel Te Kuiti the night before we rode the Timber Trail. The location is very convenient and the manager(owner maybe) John is a good guy. We had a one-bedroom unit. It was clean and tidy and not worn like so many places. It did however smell very strongly of air freshener when we arrived, nothing that...

Enjoyed staying at this motel, but the thin walls don't help when you have visitors. Still, for a quiet stay, its great (unless you're the one with the noisy visitors). Sometimes you just have one of those nights where you're a little louder than usual and having more fun than you usually have - don't do it at this motel...
