“Very confortable stay”
Reviewed December 2, 2012

Really enjoyed my stay at the White Eagle. Jeanette & Peter have done a great job of modernising the motel, and are charming hosts. Set well back from the main road, the rooms are quiet and spotlessly clean. But it is the little touches like flowers in the room, lots of extra pillows and blankets, and attention to decor that make the difference. The bed was so comfortable, and there is everything you could need your stay. Be warned the breakfasts are huge!

We believe all units should be fresh and clean for all our customers. Your comment is very much appreciated.
We love the gardens, and at this time, they are looking really pretty with all the roses flowering. Great sunny weather at the moment , which allows us to do the garden and grounds.
All the best and once again thankyou very much:).

Thank you Jeanette & Peter for being such friendly Hosts and for providing us with a lovely stay at White Eagle. You both certainly went the extra mile with your service during our stay.
The location is peaceful and our motel unit was spotless and we love how you have modernised your motel, very tastefully done and very comfortable.
Thank you Donna & Walter.

Motel entrance is on the State Highway, but the motel itself is two sections back and well away from the State Highway that runs right through Inglewood. The Motel is owner operated and very clean and tidy. Rooms have been upgraded and are very nice. Prices are good rural town prices, not the resort type prices you would expect in Taupo.

No Internet available. Flat screen and TV channels were good, selection of SKY and Digital Free View channels. Good parking for vehicle and trailer.

I stayed here for a conference and was really impressed with both the service and the room. These photos are nothing like the motel currently is, it now looks very modern and is very comfortable. The room was large and very clean and the motel is very quiet. The current owners are very helpful, professional and polite.

Hi there

I is now a year since you gave us feedback.
I am just letting you know that Trip Advisor allowed me to remove the old photos from the internet (previous owners) and add ours.
So thankyou for letting that happen. Hope you had a great New Year.

We travelled to Inglewood for a family wedding in March and we were absolutely wrapped with the service we received from the new owners of White Eagle Motel. They were extremely welcoming and helpful. Our children enjoyed the ample outdoor area, and we had a very comfortable stay in the room which had recently been refurbished. All of our requirements were met and we would definately recommend the Motel to anyone!
