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.

My parents and I booked 2 cabins here. We were arriving late in the evening and leaving early the next morning so didn't want to book an expensive place. However the place was filthy. My room was full of ants making a trail from the fridge to a hole in the ceiling, the beds were falling apart. My parents were... More

This is budget accommodation but our unit is tidy and clean. We received fresh towels every day and there was a little space to sit outside during the hotter parts of the day and into the evening. It was quiet and fairly close to town. The furniture was a little tired we all slept ok. The couch needed respringing. If... More

This place is definitely the budget end of the spectrum but was clean, comfortable and quiet. It was definitely better value than the last place we stayed in Taupo. The bathroom in the studio motel unit was tiny but if you were going with a group you could just overflow to the shared ablutions block. As there were only the... More

We stayed in the motel section. It IS cheap, it is old, but it is comfortable, clean and quiet. It had everything we needed for a good night's rest. Very friendly and helpful owner. The laundry was the cheapest we found in 3 weeks.

With this place you definitely get what you pay for, For only $37 cheapest place out for a seperate cabin. The cabin contains just a bunk bed, double size on the bottom, single top. Aesthetically- not much to look at- paint chips etc but ok for the price. The biggest downfall- bathrooms- very dirty, rundown etc, Big kitchen, but again,... More

Late emergency stop. Wouldn't again . room smells Don't think bedding has been changed. Will need a bath in disinfectant on leaving. Noisy fridge only quietened by unplugging. Good insight into what it must be like to live in the ghetto. Maybe someone left their wet running shoes under the bed. Too scared to look.

One of the least impressive hotel/motels I have ever stayed in. Although it stated no animals there was certainly a dog barking in the unit next to ours. The cabin was cramped and smelt like smoke. Not the most comfortable night I've spent
