Unfortunately we found the room to be very shabby, Duck tape holding the mesh window screen over the bathroom window, old frayed bath towels, bed linen did not look commercially laundered, my bed had springs sticking out to the point where I could not sleep on the mattress, wiped water off the kitchen floor and it came up very grey...

Hot pool was just what was needed on a cold night! Staff were very friendly, customer service here is excellent. The hotel overall is a bit shabby and worn but our room was tidy. Will return to this establishment if in the area again.

The staff at this hotel were awesome, the rooms not so much, our room was clean and large and had plenty of room for 4 adults, it was just really outdated, not too sure I would recommend for the actual room, but the location and price made our decision to stay 3 nights a good one. Kitchen was well equipped... More

The Kuirau Park Motor Lodge had a friendly staff but subpar accommodations. We had a total of 3 rooms during our time there. The first had bugs all through the bathroom, making it nearly impossible to shower. The second room was okay. Both of those rooms were the studio family size. They had a queen bed, and a twin bed....

Perfect motel for what we needed - somewhere to sleep. Wifi: 500MB per day, per room. Short walk to main shops and Kuirau Park geothermal area. Tahnee did a great job at cleaning our room during our stay. We stayed over the Waitangi Day Long Weekend, motel was very busy and many guests disregarded parking in their own designated car...

We were made welcome by a helpful and friendly receptionist and we left we were farewelled by another friendly receptionist. These people were the best asset of the motel. We stayed In a downstairs unit of this 60/70's and it was adequate for our one night stay. It is however next to Kuirau Park which has good walking paths passing... More

The room was spacious and clearly recently painted. The bed was comfortable. There is no air con so guests are at the mercy of natural ventilation - taking wafts of the local sulphurous odours as they come or sealing things off and getting a bit stuffy. The private spa pool is what attracted us to this place and it was... More

Friendly staff, nice and clean room with all the amenities and kitchenette provided, and cozy bed. What can I expected from a hotel with a good price for a vocation? It is really the price of a ticket. Besides, have to mention that their own mineral spa pool for free is really good and relaxing.

My brother in law booked me into this hotel, on reading the reviews I was very apprehensive about going. However, I feel it is imperative I write this review as I found it to be quite a good motel. The reception staff are fabulous. Upon our arrival, my son had become ill and needed medical attention. The reception advised that... More
