A lovely motel owned / operated by friendly , helpful and knowledgeable proprietors . Accommodation as part of Grabone " Tongariro Crossing " was clean , comfortable and noise free . Having access to the spa after the crossing was a real bonus. Great choice for breakfast as part of the package

Like many others we stayed here using a grab one voucher to do the Tongariro crossing. Like the other comments I would agree that this place is clean and comfortable and overall a very friendly and well-run place to stay. I would recommend staying here as we did to do the crossing.

We used a grab one voucher with a room upgrade which was worthwhile getting. Our rooms were spacious and clean but could do with an upgrade and some sound proofing. There is a busy road outside so a pair of ear plugs are useful but was feeling pretty tied after the walk and so traffic noise wasn't too annoying. Chris... More

Chris the owner was quite helpful and friendly. Just a 5-10 minute walk to the 'big carrot' and downtown for a few good restaurants and pubs. We had a beautiful view... More

Stayed on a grabone deal and had a wonderful time. Chris was a great host and the food was excellent. We had some bad weather but were kept totally informed the whole time. For vaue for money we have not had a better break. If you get a chance to go there then we would recommend it.

Bought the GrabOne - Had to pay extra $70 because single room not available. Pros- clean, helpful hosts, good meals provided, nice place for meeting fellow trampers. Cons- 40 minute ride to crossing. Not good sound proofing between rooms, extra $5 for internet (good speed, VOIP capable). NEXT time I will drive from Taupo (almost 2 hours) or find a... More

Many thanks for your review. Your comments are take on board regarding the sound proofing. Due to the age of the building it is one of the issue that we will address down the track in own ongoing upgrading of the hotel. More

I got a grab one deal for 2 nights, shuttle to the Togariro crossing, breakfasts, lunch for the crossing, and a chicken dinner. I upgraded this deal to have the Queen executive room for a bit more. The deal was superb and I can't imagine that the hotel is making much money on this deal. The location is good. On... More
