We are delighted to bring Anderson Park Motel to the market, get in touch if you’d like to arrange a viewing of this perfectly presented, easy to run, motel business in Central Otago.

The property is situated in spacious and landscaped grounds with mature trees and plantings. There is great parking and access driveways to all units.

This centrally located motel in Cromwell features 12 units and an awesome business owner/manager’s home, comprising 2 large bedrooms, large lounge, dining and kitchen, plus a fully private backyard, including courtyard, spa, covered entertaining area and established flower and vegetable gardens. There is also a substantial two car garage, with plenty of additional storage, as well as an additional car space. The office has direct access from the lounge.

  • All units are ground floor units
  • The only pet friendly motel in the area

The motel units were built in 1972, and the manager’s residence was built in 1995. The current owner has updated and replaced many chattels in the motel complex (see chattels list in documents section). Since June 2016, new beds, nets, curtains in all units have be purchased, and there’s new carpet and vinyl in all units, plus a new gas hot water system, water softening equipment, new playground equipment, plus a new BBQ, and generally all units totally upgraded. The guest laundry features a washing machine and drier, with the business working laundry featuring a Maytag washing machine and a Maytag gas dryer.

The business enjoys over 55% direct bookings and there are great forward bookings in the reservation system for the months ahead, with the bookings being predominantly commercial and returning guests (i.e. not overly reliant on international tourism market). For example, holiday periods are more often that not booked out by South Island residents, who’ve booked and stayed for the same time period for many years.

This motel is also the only pet friendly Motel in the area, with the added bonus being that the manager is able to have a family pet as well – currently Spencer enjoys being the Motel feature puppy!

Cromwell in Central Otago

Cromwell recently claimed the title of the largest town in Central Otago. It is also, technically, the newest town, after the original old town had to be moved when the Clyde Dam was built and Cromwell’s main street was flooded to create Lake Dunstan. Cromwell is located centrally between many of Central Otago’s major tourist towns, just 50km’s from Wanaka, and only 60km’s from Queenstown. Dunedin, the largest city in Otago is a scenic 3 hour drive (approximately).

Stone fruit is the jewel in the crown of Cromwell, but when you’re not devouring sweet new season fruit – including cherries! – you can get your fill of activities no matter what the season, as Cromwell offers a plethora of action packed activities, or smooth scenic highlights.

Take your pick from the following activities:

  • Picking fresh stone fruit right from the tree!
  • Jet boating on Kawarua river with Goldfields Jet
  • Visit the “world famous” & historic Goldfields Mining Centre
  • Countless family-friendly cycle trails
  • Highlands Motorsport Park
  • Enjoy the many award-winning local wineries
  • Boating and swimming in Lake Dunstan
  • Spectacular walking tracks
  • plus access to five local ski fields, all situated within an hour’s scenic drive from this motel!

Whatever the season, there is something to enjoy in and around Cromwell, which is why it is so popular and has many visitors returning year after year, both for business and family holidays.

A great place to stay ★★★★★

We enjoyed 6 nights here over Easter. A nice quiet area. We had a lovely, generous-sized studio unit at the end of a block which we really enjoyed. Very nicely appointed and comfortable bed. Easy walking to The Old Town and an ideal base for travelling to Wanaka, Queenstown, Arrowtown, Alexandra etc. We would happily return and would recommend.

5/5 | Friendly owner, chocolates were a nice touch. We appreciated being able to bring our dog. Motel unit clean and quiet. We had a very enjoyable stay. Thank you

5/5 | Hubby & I stayed planned to stay here for 2 nights, back in February 2020. We ended up staying 4 nights (nearing the end of our 3 week trip to the S.I). Absolutely fabulous location, as we did day trips using Cromwell as our base. Oue room was delighful, super staff, with lovely grounds. Used the free shuttle to & from the local Club overlooking Lake Dunstan & great meals served too. A must visit destination, with the Old Cromwell Town worth visiting & many surrounding areas. A beautiful town, scenery, cafes, restaurants & people. Can’t wait to go back here again.
