“great bargain compared to Taupo”
Reviewed September 1, 2010

I've been here three times. Discovered it by accident when I was so tired driving from Auckland to Wellington, I needed to spend the night somewhere. Had tried Taupo, but so expensive. This place is old but nice, sort of sixties furnishings. It's not spectacular but for the cheap price and locality, it's great The owner always throws bags of chippies and a drink at me which is appreciated. I end up in a good unit, and can walk to the shops. Taihape is a stopover place. Will use it again

Reviewed August 12, 2008

For anyone looking to break their trip on the Auckland to Wellington 'Overlander' train, this motel is well placed.

The proprietor offered me a large breakfast. I could have had 16 pieces of toast (six suffuiced!), two large plates of peaches, orange juice, muesli...and so on. Very generous and kind hospitality.

Impressive.
