Very nice place to stay. We got in late to Wellington from a Ferry. The owner was nice enough to stay up late and let us in. He was super-friendly. When we left we forgot some items which he sent up to us without us asking! Much appreciated and highly recommended!

This was a great place to stay for our family. So very quiet; comfy beds; super clean and great the way the sleeping was divided into two. The couple that own this motel were really friendly and welcoming. There were also lovely touches like the yummy chocolates to welcome us. Not only did they supply the usual coffee and tea,... More

Just off the main road in Foxton but that is an advantage because it is so quite, odd sheep and goat noise !! Beautifully clean, very friendly and helpful, everything catered for in the unit, wifi extremely fast and efficient and close to the shops. I strongly recommend this motel to stay if you are in the area.

Billed as the "quietest motel in Foxton - and absolutely sure hat it was! Room very nicely appointed with comfy beds and original artwork. Shower was great. Recently has 3 weeks on the road across the South Island and the Celtic rates up there with the best.

Beautiful place and really welcoming, friendly owners. The bed was very comfy and the whole apartment was clean and well kitted out with great tea and coffee-making facilities. Would stay again and would recommend to friends.

Our stay was short but this motel is clean and well set up. They accommodated our large family no problem and were so friendly and welcoming. This is a great place to stay on a quiet street. Foxton is a quaint wee town and we would like to spend a bit longer next time. Would happily stay again.

After a long days driving/ferrying, Celtic motel was just what we needed. Greeted by genial host Paul, we were shown our room for the night....it was all you could ask for, ultra clean, well appointed and with decent wifi....much better than some of the big hotel chains that we had stayed in. Highly recommended for a good nights sleep.

We stayed here for one night as Wellington was full up because of the AC/DC Concert. Therefore it was good location, very friendly and helpful host, clean and large sized rooms with simple furnitured. In the bathroom sink was unfortunably equipped with two separatet taps for hot and cold water. A good price service ratio.
