Australian hotel metasearch website, HotelsCombined, has awarded Pedlars Motel in Paeroa with a Recognition of Excellence Award.

The award is based on data from a survey of millions of guests’ reviews of hotels and motels in New Zealand.

Scored for its customer service, cleanliness, location, facilities and comfort, Pedlars Motel ranked 9.8 out of 10.

“Around 153 people who had been guests at Pedlars Motel contributed to the 9.8 rating placing the Motel amongst the best in the country,” said marketing manager for HotelsCombined New Zealand, Alberto Castellucchio.

Paeroa attracts thousands of tourists per year driving along the Hauraki Rail Trail, and the Pedlars Motel offers accommodation with that in mind.

“As a team, we are committed to giving our guests the best experience possible. We are friendly and down to earth, finding pleasure in our guests enjoying themselves. Our commitment to delivering not only superb accommodation but also genuine country-style hospitality has been instrumental in achieving this award,” said Christine Laurenson, manager of Pedlars Motel.
