Good facilities and friendly staff. Comfortable modern room and nicely appointed bathroom facilities. Shower was good size and water pressure very good. Free WiFi worked well too. I would definitely stay there again when next in Masterton.

The owners, Pat and Dave, were brilliant — very friendly, chatty and helpful. We had a room (10) which was spacious, clean and comfortable with a neat kitchenette area and a double and single bed. The wifi was good and there was excellent dedicated parking for each room. I would definitely recommend South Park.

We stayed for one night. The room was clean, modern and well maintained. Easy access with a short drive to a variety of restaurants. This location is close to a main drive that does get truck traffic which we were concerned on but turned out not to be an issue. The hosts were great and the only reason for not...

We arrived much later than intended, tired and hungry, because of a BIG problem in collecting our hire car at the Wellington ferry terminal. Pat had stayed up to ensure that we got settled in properly, and she simply could not do enough for us, after hearing all about our rather stressful day. She upgraded us to a superior family...
