Stopped inThames to break up our trip around the Coromandel and to Auckland. Found the Rolleston Motel to be a perfect stop. The owners were friendly and welcoming, parking was right outside the door to our room and the room was really spacious and clean. Bed was comfortable, kitchen was stocked, outside terrace was nice, bathroom was good. It was Easter Sunday so there wasn't much open in town so we were able to really relax and enjoy our room. Highly recommend.

Rolleston Motel, older rooms need improvement
We found this hotel below average and more expensive than you’d expect for the type of Motel it is. Our rooms were old fashioned with a block wall, stippled ceiling. The lady at reception was lovely, very helpful. The room was spacious and the smart tv was great but the old cigarette smell in the room was overpowering, we struggled with it and ended up using some cut lemons from a tree outside to try to disguise the smell. The toilet was filthy, very stained, not nice. There is a small terrace outside with table and chairs which would have been nice to use except there is no privacy between the areas outside. Our next door neighbour was outside smoking and he had his washing hanging out. Perhaps he lives there, not sure but it might be more ideal to put up a wee fence or tall plants for privacy in between rooms? Location is good, ten minute walk or short drive to the Main Street. If you’re wanting a quick stay it may be ok, or pay for a newer room. Otherwise I wouldn’t recommend for longer than a night

Spent the entire night awake with a gang around us having a party. Loud music, cars came in and out all night. Although the room was non smoking, it stank of smoke.

Very great hotel and Vicky was really friendly, helpful and great customer service! It's in a great location as you can walk to town. The room was very comfortable, great bed and a nice sitting area outside your room! It has a great pool and a good size too!

Friendly place. Not right in town, but not too far a walk. Our room had a nice patio that backed on to the carpark of another hotel, do it was not quiet. But it was fine for a couple of nights. Staff provided good advice for seeing the Coromandel Peninsula.
