Think about all those terrible motels you have seen in American Movies. That sums up this dreadful place. Scruffy in the extreme. All the kitchen equipment looks as though they were seconhand. The zinc shower room floor had a nice bounce to it. Don't expect more than a tiny bar of soap. No other toiletries provided. The TV was newish... More

Booked into this motel because of its price, central location and thermal pool. Motel room clean with comfortable bed, amazing thermal heating with water underfloor heating, shower was particularly good with strong water pressure and hot water. Thermal pool proper experience with genuine mineral water, hot and relaxing. Very therapeutic and good for your skin. So good to stay somewhere... More

When we spoke to the owners about the oven, as we wanted to cook tea. My husband was told, QUOTE... "I don't... More

Stayed here for 4 nights but wouldn't do any more. Rooms were dated and our oven didn't work so had to use just the hob! Free wireless internet is a bonus and price was decent. Didn't use the spa. Room was quite big and shower was decent. Good location as was opposite supermarket and 5 minute walk to town. Could... More

The room was a little tired but perfectly clean, it had central heating and it was very comfortable. We are... More

The beds were very comfortable and the bedrooms quite large with enough room for our luggage. The lounge/kitchen area was spacious and well equipped to make... More

We drove around to lots of motels to try and get the best place for the price and found this one. The lady was lovely who owns the property and offered loads of advice about good places to visit. She knew a lot the Waitamo caves and which Mairo village was best to go to. The accomodation was very big... More
