Although everything appeared clean and tidy, we were a bit disappointed in the old towels that were in our unit and would like to report that a couple of the pillows had an odour of being previously used - perhaps it's just time for them to be sanitised. Other than that, we had everything we required.
Thanks for the time you have taken to write a review and we appreciate your comments . We only have recently taken over this motel and have taken you comments on board, We are pleased to advise that we have purchased new pillow and are in the process of replacing some of our older towels.
Friendly, helpful staff. Rooms are well equipped and tidy. Big, warm clean swimming pool.
Close to Napier, Hastings.
Bathroom fittings and furniture still functional, in mint condition and in good working order. May need upgrading to modern standards in the near future.
Loved the quiet air conditioning on a very hot night!
Room was tidy, close to the pool, and staff were very helpful
Friendly hosts, nice place to stop, great pool too!
Our hosts were helpful and welcoming. Pool looked lovely and clean although we did not try it out. Only stayed one night. We were concerned about being next to the highway but it quietened down at night and we slept well. Interior slightly dated but was fine for one night.
Lovely unit, clean and tidy and very big for the whole family. Hosts were very friendly and welcoming. Recommend to everyone wanting to stay down there.
Hi Heather, thanks for your time to write a review. We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us.
Had enjoyed staying here and wished we stayed for another night.
The apartment/studio that we had booked felt just like home and everything was just so nice and cosy. Thank you :)
Hi Denise, many thanks for your review - so pleased you enjoyed your stay and hope to see you again, maybe longer next time :)
Thanks Ness & Gilly
Unit was nice and clean. Friendly staff. Road noise at times was quite loud.
Generally good value for money
Hi Warren. Thanks for taking the time to write a review - your comments are greatly appreciated.
Hi, nice venue though it would be nice if they put a little more effort into providing great customer service. I made a request and they couldn't even bring the information to my room.
Hi Donnalynn, thanks for taking the time to write a review. We are sorry that your request was not attended to. We apologise for this (although we are unsure what request you had made)
What a small world, the lovely lady running the motel, Vanessa, and I went to primary school together.
Lovely motel, would recommend
Thanks and so lovely to see you again after all these years!!!! We are pleased you enjoyed your stay
We spent one night at this friendly motel - quiet and peasant. The owners were packing to leave as they had sold the business. We look forward to the new owners keeping the welcoming atmosphere.
Clean and Tidy. Welcoming reception. Very helpful
friendly service, comfortable, well appointed,and excellent value for money
warm friendly quiet ...12 out of 10
Place was clean and tidy and warm
Very helpful and friendly people.
Recommend to all
The cleanliness of the motel was outstanding and staff were very obliging and friendly, but we had no idea this was a truck stop and were disturbed by trucks leaving in the early morning, and by road noise.
nice clean tidy motel, all in great order only one minor drawback I do not think steak when cooked is odouriferous but I can understand the reasoning. The major problem for me was the volume of large noisy truck & trailer units that travel past the property at all hours of the night, this particular problem is not confined to this motel
Have stayed there before. Good reception. Clean, comfortable accommodation at a reasonable price.
Arrived at hotel on a lovely hot day (33Degrees) to find that the air conditioning unit had been turned on for us. Bliss!
Accommodation met all our requirements, including a swim in the pool to cool down.
Very friendly and helpful. Had a great stay.
We flew our own aeroplane into Waipukurau Airport to stay for two nights for a family celebration in the area. The location next to the airfield was all important for us but once we checked in there was much more to this motel than just the location. First the people were good to deal with, the room was satisfactory with better than average size. We were offered a courtesy car for use on a short term basis and drove to town although it was only a 10 minute walk. At the end of our stay our hosts were happy to drive us in their own vehicle to the airport which was close by but we had some baggage.
This motel is highly recommended as the rooms are large with a very comfy bed. Bathrooms are spotless and a very good shower with lovely hot water. The kitchen area has all you need including a table and chairs. The double glazing is very good, which means you don't really notice the traffic. Air con units very quiet and effective.
The owners go out of their way to help. We stayed for 11 days over Christmas and they looked after us very well.
We recommend this motel to anyone staying or passing thru Waipukarau or Waipawa. Thanks again for making our stay with you so pleasurable. Kathie and Clive T
I found our 2 bedroom unit to be above average, air conditioning was on in our room which was a welcome relief upon arrival.
Separate access to bathroom and kitchen areas from each bedroom.
The pool was clean with varying depths so the little ones have fun too.
No worries with door bashing from other cars, plenty of space here.
Down to earth Hosts who are attentive to the things that matter.
Surrounded by farm land and some sheep was a good outlook.
The location is on a main road however the unit had double glazed windows and vehicle noise at night was quite acceptable.
Very pleasant and will stay again when going that way.
Friendly, helpful owners. Clean and tidy with a great swimming pool.
An easy walk to town with kids. Good sized family unit for three kids. Clean and basic.
A lovely clean modern room with all that was promised. Friendly helpful service. Good for kids. A great location for the Pukeora Estate festival, which is why we were visiting. All in all, we were very happy with our choice to stay.
Very clean and comfortable unit, lovely beds to sleep in. Handy to town and although on the main road, traffic noise wasn't even enough to be annoying. Cold afternoon when we arrived, would have been nice if heat pump had been turned on to warm the unit before we arrived. Pleasant hosts. Would certainly stay here again.
I stayed here for a month while working in the area, and have been delighted at the wonderful care and attention I received from the hosts and staff. They went out of their way to make me feel at home. All the comforts, quiet, very clean - a great place to stay for an extended period.
My family of 7 adults and 2 children stayed at Thornton Lodge for 2 days. I have stayed in many motels and hotels throughout NZ and this experience was something very special. The hosts were very friendly and attentive and went out of their way to make our stay very special and enjoyable. We all came away feeling the same way and we strongly recommend Thornton so you can see what we mean.
We both thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Thornton Lodge. The management and staff were friendly and helpful, and it was much appreciated. We came there to relax, and we got what we came for. Thanks to all for having us.
Received warm welcome & enjoyed very comfortable bed.
The motel was reccomended by friends and we found their comments to be well founded. The room was excellent, with plenty of space to relax, as well as sleep, and the kitchen area was well equipped. The management were warm and friendly, and extremely helpful with regard to information about the local area and restaurants. We enjoyed our stay immensly.
We have had both our employees and ourselves stay at this motel. The service was excellent and very accommodating. Very welcoming with great knowledge about the area. The rooms are very clean with great outside area for the kids.
Thanks for the stay
We were met at the unit,given a guided tour and shown the operation of various equipment and generally made very welcome.
The bed was extremely comfortable (no roll together) and unit spacious with all home comforts and very clean.
We could not have wished for better hosts
The hosts went out of their way to assist us, the unit was great, very modern and roomy inside and clean and everything we could possibly need. Great parking area, and a really lovely swimming pool. Highly recommend this motel if you every need to stay in Waipukurau.
I found the hosts cordial and welcoming. The property is very well cared for.
The room was exceptionally clean, spacious and properly equipped. The price was very reasonable. The room was serviced regularly. I'll definitely come back when next in town.
We opted for the studio - guided by price!
Had arrived at the motel and everything was clean and tidy as one would expect.
friendly service and no problems had. Would recommend this motel to others.
Really friendly owners, nice unit, clean and tidy.
We arrived late and they had turned the heater on for us.
Would recommend, good location.
We have stayed at Thornton Lodge a number of times during the last year or so and consistently have had excellent service. Units are always clean & tidy. Selwyn & Bernice are always around with a smile and go out of there way to ensure you have a good stay. Recommend highly to others.
Thornton Lodge is immaculately presented. The hosts are efficient and friendly without being intrusive. Handy to town and very quiet! Rooms well equiped and heated. Extra blankets and pillows provided.
We enjoyed our stay and warm welcome to the Thornton Lodge Motel. We have visited a few times and have found owners very hospitable and helpful and rooms well serviced. The rooms are a good size to be able to relax in.We are happy to go back there next time we are in the area.
Fantastic accommodation - clean, crisp, tidy and great value for money. The kids loved the pool and the space to play. Was a great base for our family visit to the Hawkes Bay. Thanks again to the wonderful owners who went the extra mile for us.
Our visit was seamless! Pleasant staff and a relaxed atmosphere. The pool was perfect for colling off and everything else was clean and tidy. Thanks for a great stay!
Would recommend to all, great place and the owners were fantastic.Will be staying again for syre
Lovely clean spacious unit well off the road. Very accomodating and friendly hosts. Lived up to all our needs and expectations, very comfortable stay.
Very tidy and clean . Friendly and helpful owners. Even all the rain couldn't dampen our stay. Would stay again anytime. Thanks
Tim and Jacqui Johnson
My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay and the motel, despite the fact that we only were able to stay one night. We really liked the layout of our unit and the surroundings, overall a great stay, we look forward to visiting again.
We rented a one bed unit which had 3 single beds and one queen. We liked t he friendly welcome, comfortable beds, clean and tidy unit with plenty of room for the three of us. This motel is well located for golf and eating in town.
