Celtic Motel - Foxton's Quietest Accommodation

Nestled amongst rural landscapes in the sunny Horowhenua township of Foxton, Celtic Motel is where comfort and friendly hospitality meet a hint of country. This 7-unit gem in the beautiful lower west coast of the North Island offers peace and quiet, yet is conveniently located just 400m off SH 1. Situated 110km north of Wellington, this is the ideal place to stay if you are catching the interisland ferry and Palmerston North is just a 30-minute drive away.

Your hosts Paul and Lesley offer 7 spacious and spotlessly clean ground-floor units, including 1 x Superior Spacious Studio unit (sleeps 2), 3 x Premium units (sleeps 4) and 3 x Classic units (sleeps 4).
All units include Sleepyhead Queen beds and have parking right outside the door. As well as all the comforts you need while travelling, we offer added extras to make your stay that little bit special, with delicious plunger coffee and complimentary biscuits and chocolate. All our rooms are smokefree and have FREE WiFi. Superior and Premium units have Samsung 50" UHD LED TVs. Classic units have Samsung 32" HD LED TVs. All units have 50+ SKY channels with Guest Select.
Cooked and continental breakfasts are available.

We are just a 1.5km drive from the Foxton town centre, and while you are here explore the many attractions, from Te Awahou Nieuwe Stroom, the fantastic new multicultural tourism centre, Off the Loop, offering cable wakeboard and waterski riding on a private lake, a horse-drawn tram, Dutch windmill and Audio Visual Museum to the Flax Stripper Museum and Foxton Golf Course. Foxton Beach is 10-minutes' drive away and home to New Zealand's number one kitesports provider, Wind Warrior, who are experts at kite surfing and stand-up paddleboarding. With endless outdoor experiences around Foxton, you will also want to get amongst nature - visit the Manawatu River estuary, a wetland of international importance, and enjoy the walkways, cycleways and tramping tracks in the Tararua Forest Park. If you're in need of some retail therapy, a boutique shopping experience is just a 10-minute drive away in Shannon..
