Not knowing the town and being in a big truck we needed some supplies and Leslie the owner took us to the local super market and waited for us while we shopped then drove us back to the motel unit. Treated us like family , nothing was too much trouble. Enjoyed the piece and quite of the site , got a good nights sleep. Thank you both Paul & Lesley.

We were met by the owner a nice friendly man. Bed was very comfortable and with good pillows. Room was really very clean, 10/10 for cleanliness, a little dated in some areas but because it was so clean I didn't mind that at all. Cooked breakfast was delicious. Quiet and nicely presented we would definitely stay again.

We stayed overnight whilst traveling with our two granddaughters. We were greeted by Lesley with a very warm welcome. The room was spotlessly clean and comfortable, and the girls really appreciated the electric blankets on the beds. The configuration of the family room is excellent, as are the amenities on offer, and the motel is very quiet and peaceful. Paul and Lesley were exceptionally helpful in returning an item which we had left behind.

Just a wonderful all round experience , we were in town for a funeral and certainly cheered us up. The hostess was wonderful and friendly, even offered to help with our luggage and would close the curtains at night while we were out and turn the night light on. This was hospitality that used to happen a long time ago, absolutely fantastic. Bed was great too.

Weekend away

Reviewed 10 Feb 2018

The Celtic Motel is on the edge of the town close enough to State Highway 1 to be handy but far enough away to avoid any traffic noise. The unit was comfortable and made for a pleasant stay. One trick however is if leaving the ranch slider open leave the net curtain drawn across the doorway - this stops insects from getting in. Foxton is an interesting place for a stopover, particularly with the Dutch museum and windmill, the Mavtech technology museum, and a number of other interesting things in the area. By prior arrangement guests arriving late can have their key left for them in a security box enabling immediate access to their unit.
