This is a wonderful motel... We have stayed numerous times now, always beautifully clean and warm, and as it is away from the Main Street and railway it is very quiet. Wonderful thoughtful hosts, and everything you need plus some delightful little extras.

It might look an old building but inside is sparkling clean, immaculate all round, nice new appliances and very comfortable. Being one block back from the main road it was very quiet, beds very comfortable and lots of thought given to little extra details. I would stay here again for sure.

Thank you so much for your comment. Unfortunately we cannot do anything about the look of the outside of the building except keep it looking it's best.

I think I've been extremely lucky to stumble on this little gem. I do however really disagree with their three star rating, it should be five. The room I got was inmaculate and the shower was absolutely bliss. The hosts, well I find it hard to find words to describe them, the closest is absolutely amazing. They were friendly, helpful and very welcoming. This is my second stay and if I could afford it, I'd stay here once a week. Lovely place, quiet, COSY and very homey, easy location with exceptionally amazing hosts is how I'd sum this place up. Oh and I forgot to mention, they're even walking the dog for me while I go do the walking event I'm up here to do.! Now that's way beyond the call of duty if you ask me. I don't have enough thumbs to give it the thumbs up it deserves. Highly recommend this place as your first port of call if you're ever staying or passing through Levin.

Room Tip: Book in advance to get the choice of room best suited for you, it's a popular motel.

This would be the second time we've stayed at Totara Lodge Motel and both times my sister and I found the motel to be clean, spacious, light, well-equipped and peaceful. Bo & Jane were great hosts and made us feel very welcome. Would highly recommend their motel when passing through or staying for a while in Levin. A home away from home!
