After reading some of the reviews, I was a bit worried about the condition of the motel. But was pleasantly surprised at the friendly and helpful owners who made us very welcome. the room was clean and the linen fresh. I hope to stay again soon.

We parked our camper there for the night. Positives: It's cheap, unpowered ($25 for the camper). Walking distance to centre of Taupo Free, unlimited wifi Charging sockets in kitchen Hot showers Negatives: Toilets and showers filthy Kitchen was disgusting, everything was either dirty or dusty and every sink was stacked with dirty dishes. Both toilet block and kitchen was freezing.

I need a option to just put good. Not quite very good but way better than average. Or 3.5 out of 5 stars. For what u pay it's 5 stars. But it could do with some up keep. After a long day of runing around adrenaline seaking would be nice if the telly worked to chill out and watch it.... More

Booked through booking.com. I would be weary after this. old n run down amenities. situated in a lower socio-economic area. $85 better spent somewhere else. Toilet and showers common, but disgusting. Common kitchen, old. Avoid this place.

The bloke at the reception said "This isn't the Ritz" - I was expecting bad things, but after he'd shown me the room I wondered what the fuss was about. Clean room, with towels and bedding provided, clean toilets and a decent kitchen. Of course, some of the equipment is old, and the paintwork is peeling etc, but it's really... More

When I found this cabin accommodation at $30 per night I wondered if I might be making a big mistake booking it. But in a destination with as much to offer as Taupo, how much time does one spend in their room . As long as it's clean and comfortable right. This ticked those boxes being comfortable, modest and clean.... More

Stayed here for one night on my trip around NZ. Booked the place for its fantastic value, we paid $37 for a night in their backpackers cabin - a price that's just unheard of! Arrived and the owner was so so helpful, told us all of the local spots and the best places to go. Helped us with everything -... More

Our cabin was very small, filthy and had a lot of ants. There was a syringe between the upper bunk wire wove and the mattress (no needle with it thank goodness). The toilet / shower block wasn't clean and the hand dryer unit on wall was broken. The kitchen was a mess and I doubt if you could have keep... More

The owner is very friendly and a great source of information - put us on to a few local attractions we would otherwise have missed on our flying visit through. We also thought the room was great value for the money and we'll maintained. Would definitely stay there again.
