Nice little hotel in the small town of Turangi. The owner was very nice. Our room was nice, a decent size and really clean. There was a kettle, fridge and toaster. This was one of the best hotels for Internet of our 21 days in Golden chain motels in New Zealand. In a lot of the motels they annoyingly make... More

We arrived around 3pm to a pre heated room and dumped our gear and went to the bar for a couple of quiet drinks. What a great atmosphere in front of the fire chatting with other guests and staff. We had one of the best steak meals I have had, cooked to perfection. The staff were attentive and friendly without... More

We stayed at this hotel for two nights so we could do the Tongariro Crossing. The owners were very nice and helpful and told us how we could catch the Tongariro shuttle and gave us a local map of Turangi. The room was nice and clean and had a large window facing the Turangi river, although the embankment is too... More

Thanks for the review. I'm glad you got an opportunity to try some trout. Surprisingly few non-fisherfolk get the chance to taste quality rainbow trout. The river stopbank is a relatively new addition having being installed around 2006. Prior to that there were excellent views of the river from the riverside units but unfortunately it (the river) had a bad... More

This motel has a great location, just beside the Tangariro River, a few minutes drive to town center. Room is specious with full cooking facilities, free fast wifi, peaceful environment and of course comfortable bed and good shower. I just have nothing to pick on this motel. All in all, this is a great place to relax, especially if you... More

We booked two rooms and Kay & Brian the hosts, offered us two rooms which were inter-connected. We loved this place where we had a small but well appointed kitchenette. We conveniently cooked breakfast (not the dinner because we are curry people and we were advised against cooking with curries in the facility). The rooms were large and very comfortable.... More

This is a very clean and tidy motel complex. Well placed in the centre of the North island for those wishing to break their journey, or for those wanting to sample the local activities such as the famed trout fishing. The motel has a good bar and restaurant with very friend staff and serves really great food. The motel also... More

We stayed here for two nights, before and after our Tongariro hike, and we really liked the place. We booked two rooms, and got two adjacent rooms with a connecting door. Both rooms have a small kitchen, which was a little unexpected. After coming back from a difficult hike, we grabbed their hot water tub room and just sat there... More

Our family of four stayed here on our way from Wellington to Auckland. It's in a great location: on the main road and close to the shops but also close to a nice walk along the river. The rooms are clean and well-equipped. We had breakfast at the restaurant and our hosts were very accommodating of our little kids.

Thanks for taking the time to write a review. We agree our location is ideal for a stop over to break up a long trip. Turangi Tongariro also has a lot to offer as a destination in it's own right.
