Good service at the motel when we arrived early due to attending a daytime concert. They allowed us to park our car on the premises although the room wasn't ready (before 10am we arrived). Good friendly service. Sleep well although the bed was a bit bouncy, no noise, Good check out process.

Arrived at the Motor Innexpecting a friendly greeting and gave my booking number off booking.com and was quickly told it was booked by name only. Went to the the pool which was cold and expected a spa pool to warm up in as advertised. The Spa Pool was empty. No working spa pools on site. The website photo shows a... More

Due to my usual stop over motel had no vacancies due to the fact it was the new years weekend and Taupo was bustling with holiday makers. I drove around looking for somewhere that had vacancies. My trusty vehicle lead me to this very place. My luck I got the last room which was a spa suite and with my... More

Our second stay here and we'll definitely stay again. The accommodation is clean and has all the expected supplies. We had a spa unit which was lovely because you can see the TV while sitting in the bubbles. Very handy for town and unlimited free WiFi.

We had 23 rooms at this motel last weekend as part of our end of year work function. We started planning a few months ahead and found anyone we dealt with at the hotel to be very helpful and accommodating. Our room in particular was one of the 2 bedroom suites which was very comfortable and tastefully decorated. Televisions in... More

We stayed one night en route from Wellington to Auckland. Had a room with a spa bath upstairs and included a cooked breakfast of bacon, poached eggs and hash brown with toast. The room was spacious and the bed was comfy. It would have been nice if the heating was on in the room as it was bitterly cold and... More

Absolutely loved this accommodation - my partner and I have said we will definitely return here! We stayed in room 3 - it was perfect. There a was a tiny bit of road noise, but what can you expect staying on a main road? We loved the spa bath and the bed was very comfortable. The shower facility was good,... More

We stayed for a single night en route from Napier to Auckland. The facilities were reasonable. Bed was good. Shower was excellent. Plenty of space. Laundry facilities were fine. No major complaints about anything but we just didn't like it very much. We were processed very professionally and any queries were answered to our satisfaction. It seemed very business-like but...
