We stayed here while visiting for a family wedding. Pat & Dave were extremely helpful and Dave's sense of humour always caught me off guard. They didn't mind at all when we had others to visit us and made everyone welcome. They helped me to do the washing and when my laptop appeared to break down they found me somewhere...

A colleague and I were on a road trip. We were late getting out of Wellington and so arrived late. The welcome was confusing stating they worried where we were. We had guaranteed the room with a cc. We were exhausted and with no consideration the interrogation continued .... do you support the farmers. This related to do we want...

Pat-Dave H, Owner at South Park Motel, responded to this review

It is disappointing that you felt confused by your welcome. Perhaps you were, as you say, exhausted and therefore not in a receptive mood. It is unfortunate that you did not appreciate our friendly nature and preferred to be treated in a 'strictly business' and impersonal manner that the larger corporate hotels offer. We are a small, friendly, owner-operated motel...

My wife and I stayed here for one night. Owner/manager was very welcoming and friendly even though we turned up late at night. Unit very clean and tidy. Probably recommend staying in a unit a little away from main road end if you want to sleep in. Would happily return.

I found myself needing accommodation in Masterton at short notice and was fortunate enough to get help from Dave and Pat the proprietors of the Motel. They were able to help me out and literally took me in at short notice and even made me a cuppa. Very hard to find people as helpful as these two and in a...

Beautifully kept motel. Room was immaculate,though on the small side. Owners were very gracious and friendly. Motel had easy access to downtown. Aircon a real plus. Would definitely recommend for an overnight stay. Bed was comfortable and linens and towels supplied very plush.

We stayed 2 nights & used Masterton as our base to see Martinborough, Carterton & Cape Palliser. Where possible, the hosts were very accomodating, & noted special requests & assited with familiarisation in the local area. The rooms were reasonably priced, had reverse cycle air conditioning, good kitchenette, crisp linen & nice towels & solid walls between the units. Would...
