    Our favourite
    Of the 16 similarly equipped accommodations that we stayed in on our trip round NZ, this was our favourite. The room and its facilities were spot on and the sun-facing veranda delightful. The free hot spa and laundry were a bonus. Unlike most other motels which can feel a bit hemmed in, these units have plenty of grounds around them. Our hostess was outstanding, with an informative welcome chat and plenty of useful hints & tips throughout our stay. Great value too.

    Good central north island overnight stopover
    Pleasantly situated with grass, barbeque tables and semi detached units giving an impression of space

    Good 6.0
    Ok, overpriced budget accommodation
    Good location, walkable to town. Room a bit drab and furnishings need replacing. The air conditioning has no remote so you have to stand on a chair to turn on and off, the manager insists on setting the temperature. Room has small decking with table and chairs but covered in bird droppings. We were next to the room where they gut the fish, not pleasant. The spa has to be booked for a short period and key and towels returned almost immediately which means getting dressed to go to the reception,

    This place was amazing! Donna went out of her way to answer all of our questions and make us feel at home. The hotel is located just across the way from a plaza with a grocery store and plenty of places to eat; you can walk right over through an underpass. We stayed the nights before and after doing Tongariro and it was perfect for that. Additionally there is a free washer/dryer and Donna provided one loads worth of detergent for us to wash our clothes. Would recommend!

    Excellent accommodations, amenities & host
    Donna was a great host. Our room was clean and comfortable. The location was across the street from town center and convenient to the river track, which was an excellent walk, either short or long. Donna made us feel welcome and allowed us to use the laundry facilities and hot tub. Highly recommended

    Good motel up to NZ standards
    A good motel similar to most of I've stayed in New Zealand. Good location to Tongariro for the crossing or skiing. Close to the town centre with restaurants, supermarket, which was quite handy. Very nice service and the owner was very attentive. Sky TV was a good bonus.

    Good location. Easy access to amenities. Great for a family to stay.

    Good 6.0
    This property was reasonable and clean, but does have its drawbacks that are unique and under the control of the operator. These include unusually strict ‘rules’, air conditioning that is completely controlled by the operator and not the guest and although the property has good water pressure, there is little more than a trickle from the shower. The bed was also well past it’s use-by date. The exterior looks very attractive.
