On my very late arrival I was greeted by the two very friendly new owners. They showed me to my room that had been recently renovated. The rooms were very clean, the bed was extremely comfortable and the shower was roomy & had excellent water pressure. I would definitely stay here again!!

The Host was very friendly and went out of his way to help my family and accommodate our pet dog. Being dog friendly is a huge bonus today. The meals were very nice. The rooms very tidy and clean. Nice beds. Everything you need. Thanks for the stay Brian and staff. I will return if down that way again.

We had a one night stay en route to Auckland. The new owners were very friendly and helpful. We just had a studio unit but it was clean and tidy. We also had a lovely meal in the restaurant the evening we were there. We wish them all the best and hope to stay again.

Thanks for reviewing our Motel and we're glad you enjoyed yourself in the restaurant. We think it's a pretty special spot too nestled in against the Tongariro River. We hope to see you again. More

Was a wonderful stay and was a highlight as far as accommodations while we were in NZ. Affordable, clean, great view of the river, just wonderful new owners there that were so accommodating. Free unlimited wifi at the restaurant!!! Rarity on the island. Great breakfast. 5+ stars in my book

We had a standard studio room (one queen bed and one single bed) which was great. The service was very friendly and staff were helpful. The room was modern and clean. Overall we had an excellent two night stay. Would definitely recommend this to others and will definitely be staying again.

Thanks very much for taking the time to post a review Laura. We purchased the Motel on September 1st (just a week ago) and we're now working hard to put a few changes in place. They include a new satellite based TV system. The current one is UHF and in this area the reception is, as you say, hopeless! We're... More

The motel is cute and good size, with good central location to Lake Taupo, Taupo City and ski fields. The staff were friendly and chatty, good service all round. The room was clearly a bit dated but then again, this is a motel and in NZ. The bed was fairly comfortable, however the bathroom was a bit lacking, as was... More

Recently returned from a fly fishing trip. This was a nice place to stay that was very convenient to both shops and, most importantly, the Tongariro River. The owners are very hospitable and really tried to make the stay enjoyable. The restaurant has excellent food. Excellent choice.

We only stayed one night as we were just passing through. The huge fireplace was awesome, great for sitting around having a drink. Food was excellent too. The staff are wonderful, very friendly and nothing is too much hassle.
