Avalon Motel Thames, Thames, New Zealand
A very comfortable stay
We arrived slightly early but luckily our room was available. Newly decorated and very clean. Extremely comfortable bed. Room 10 has a view across the garden to the main road but there was not a noise problem.

Good convenient clean and comfortable
Great convenient location. Even though it’s beside the road the double glazing means you don’t hear any noise. The rooms have been upgraded recently and everything feels relatively new. My room was a little cold but there was a heater and we were experiencing a wicked cold snap. The kitchenette is just that, not enough utensils to cook a meal. But good enough for one person.

Convenient spot on south entry to Thames
Great spot to stay a night. Close to road on entering Thames. Very quiet due to double glazing. Recently refurbished unit and spacious. Friendly staff. Only caters for quick meals as only has microwave, fridge, electric jug and toaster. no other cooking facilities or utensils, cooking bowls etc.

Great hotel, highly recommended
Very friendly manager who was helpful with knowing a little about the condition of the local hiking trails. The room was larger than expected and it was very nice to have the bathroom separated from the studio to better isolate the moisture from showers. I would definitely stay here again when passing through or near Thames.
