I stayed here for a night in a dorm room while I was on my way to Tauranga. The entrance is a bit confusing because all of the accomodation is upstairs and downstairs there is a bar and a restaurant. As I walked upstairs, I was overpowered by a very strong smell of smoke. It is a very old building,... More

Stayed here recently. Staff on arrival were very friendly. Room was clean and tidy, however bed was only a double bed which was too small for 2 people. Bathroom had no window or ventilation. It definitely needs one or the other as smells have nowhere to go! Our friends also stayed in a room for the night. Their room was... More

Another, couldn't be bothered cooking night and we tried a place we had not been to before. One of the original Hotels in Thames it now houses a good restaurant & bar. The decor & furnishings are a bit tired but the excellent food and service made up for any shortcomings. We were not staying at the hotel, just having... More

The rooms and facilities are clean. Nice friendly welcome on arrival. Beds are not that comfortable and quite a lot of noise from street. Restaurant was over priced. great secure storage for bikes if doing the rail trail.

Good walking distance to shops and next door... More

This lovely old pub is situated on a corner of the main street of this pretty little town. It's obviously very popular with locals, and it's easy to see why. Casual, friendly atmosphere in rustic surrounds. A mixed clientele, all of whom seemed happy. No children running around. A good choice of excellent food at an amazingly good price. We... More

Set across the room from a beautiful wooden church. The decor is nice and rustic and the beer was very cold and good. There were a couple of tables and chairs to sit out side and people watch in the beautiful weather and is very old town with lots of history and charm.

The accommodation at the Junction is very much a 'get what you pay for' affair (which makes it quite basic) but this is offset by the central location and access to the lovely bar and restaurant downstairs. Our hosts ironed out a glitch with our room assignment without a problem.

The prawns were hot & delightful & so was the asparagus however the salmon was cool & half cooked. Very disappointing. Sorry I cannot recommrnd the Junction Hotel... More
