“Needs some work sadly.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013

Mixed feelings about this one as owners lovely and helpful, but place quite obviously run down. Playground not flash at all. Bathrooms were clean but patrons made to pay deposit for key to use them. They advertise a spa pool and sauna but they don't appear to be operational (could be wrong about this tho as it was locked, we weren't given a key, and didn't bother to ask about it in the morning). It was cheap, and we might stay there again if passing through town and stuck.

All I can say is either find somewhere else or drive to Taupo. This place is dark and dingy. From the motorhome sites it is a long walk to the bathrooms, no lighting etc. The TV in the lounge didn't work, no DVD's for hire, overall a bad experience.

Credit to the lady at reception, she was lovely, however the place appears to be run down with no attention to maintenance.

We ended up leaving after a few hours and going somewhere else which was added expense but it wasn't worth staying.

Not many options in Turangi if you are in a motorhome. My recommendation would be drive the bit further to Taupo and stay at the Top Ten - its amazing.

Website way out of date, including prices. We stayed in a 'refurbished unit', that was in need of refurbishment.. Drab and washed out looking. Cheap cutlery, plates etc. Managers blame owners for everything and say they have no 'power'. Certainly not value for money. At a peak time, occupancy was sparse. I guess their reputation has become known. Certainly would not stay again.

Totally disastrous. Had booked (and paid) for a motel room at this location for 2 nights (the day before and the night following the Tongariro Crossing day long hike) and we could barely get a nights rest.... rooms had terrible smell of smoke although no signs of cigarettes you can tell the smell was just part of this very tired place. We couldn't even bare the thought of staying the second night and left after one night of torture (with no refund).
