Totara Lodge Motel
Ranked #2 of 15 Levin B&B and Inns
Reviewed 22 March 2016

We stayed in the front unit and it was just like a little flat with a separate bedroom and our own front garden and entry. Very close to the shops, restaurants and quiet. Whilst the motel is not new, clean, great hot shower and the owners were very friendly and helpful. Would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Room 5 at the front facing the little yellow house

Stayed here for one night on our war to Wellington.
As we were arriving late, we had instructions on what to do on our arrival.
This motel is in a great location, it is really clean and tidy, and everything that you require in a motel room.
I would definitely stay here again.

Arranged to stay a few nights and ended up for two weeks. Lovely clean motel with everything in the room that we needed. clean tidy and 'felt' right. the motel was very well presented and serviced to a high standard (the beds were the best motel beds that we have stayed in - so comfy and clean) Loved the sitting area outside to soak up the sunshine and chat to the neighbours if you wanted to - we did ours were lovely but the biggest plus was that nothing was to much trouble for the lovely owners Bo and Jane. Thank you for your hospitality and we will be seeing you again.....

Room Tip: Just off the main road so quieter but within easy walking distance to the local amenities.

Was very happy with our room. Unit we stayed in was not modern but it was very clean and very well equipped. Only stayed one night but would have been happy to stay longer. Front office very accommodating.

Room Tip: All rooms appeared to be quiet as well away from the railway track and main road

Stayed here 2 nights whilst visiting family with my father, as soon as we arrived we were upgraded to a larger more suitable room. The room & grounds are immaculate - not a speck of dust anywhere & such gracious hosts who can't do enough to make your stay more comfortable. Even the lovely Jane advising me on the unpredictable Levin weather so as I take a cardy.
Beds are extremely comfortable with crisp, quality linen, location is perfect, so handy to everything.
We couldn't recommend this motel highly enough - great accommodation at such a reasonable price.
Thank you Jane & Bo for being such gracious hosts.

Room Tip: 1 bedroom rooms are large & spacious
