“Perfect location, great value”
Reviewed November 28, 2013 via mobile

We have stayed at this motel on two occasions now. Both times we have stayed in room 12- which is in fact a 2 bedroom cottage. Both times have been fantastic. The rooms are clean, and serviced daily. Full kitchen facilities and directly across the road from the RSA. Great water pressure in the shower and overall a really great level of service and comfort. Sure it's not a five star hotel-but it certainly is outstanding in comparison to other accommodation offerings in the area.
Highly recommended.

Stayed November 2013

Hi there, sorry the response is so late but haven't joined up to Trip Advisor till now. So don't know just how Twin Rivers got on here in 2013 ? Anyhow I only have to throw some pics onto website, then I should be away. Thank you for your comments :o) Best wishes for a great 2017

Nice motel. Is clean and every thing you need provided. Tv needs improving. Could not get channel 3. Having spare toilet paper kept in the vanity unit would be nice. The shower was lovely and hot although it did go cold for a few seconds when someone next door used their water.

Stayed overnight while making our way back to Auckland. Room had had air conditioning, tv, dvd player, small kitchenette, queen & single bed, small table & 2 chairs. Bathroom was a bit cramped but plenty of hot water & good water pressure. RSA club is just across the road for good food and a drink. Parking is in front of your unit.

As we were doing the Forgotten Highway (Taumarunui via Whangamomona to Stratford) we decided to overnight in Taumarunui. We made no bookings but I found Twin Rivers on my I-fone although their web site interestingly enough isn't I-fone friendly and I couldn't see their street address anywhere! Thankfully Taumarunui isn't big so we found it OK. We were given a newly renovated Studio Unit and for $115 we thought it was excellent value for money, It was spacious enough for two people (particularly just for a one night stay) with full kitchen facilities and a small dining table and best of all, (very unusual for motels throughout NZ) it had a heat pump - thank heavens because it was exceedingly chilly. Well done Twin Rivers for having the heat pumps in your rooms. It was very clean and tidy and we parked right outside the unit.

Room Tip: The Twin Rivers name is a bit mis-leading as we thought it would be next to the river.It's on a...

Thank you Kathryn for your comments. I don't know how Twin Rivers Motel got onto Trip Advisor back in 2013 ? I sure didn't do it. I am starting to fill in the gaps now and hope to get the pics up and visible. Most of the units have ben refurbished and should be finished by New Year.
The TWIN RIVERS name is because the Motel is midway between the confluence of the Ongarue and Wanganui Rivers. It was called Tattles Motel after the owner builder. The Twin Rivers Motel is the very first Motel built in Taumarunui, 50 plus years ago.
