“Over priced accommodation”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 17, 2012

This facility was recommended for accommodation close to River Lodge where we were attending a wedding. So needs a makeover if they want to charge the price they do, Dark dingy room more like a cabin they call a motel $125 per night. What a joke. Would have been worth driving to Taupo for that price and staying in luxury, Not even a phone in the room ,mosquitos everywhere including squashed ones on walls, and a real old musty smell about our room. Never again.

2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 29, 2011

Booked this purely because the website showed a great kids area and swimming pool and must say there was great disappointment. The kids play area is seriously outdated verging on dangerous with metal bolts sticking out and sharp welding fixes on many parts. The swimming pool would have been gorgeous had it been clean but the thermal holes were absolutely revolting... Kids too scared to even go in due to overgrown state of everything.

Not wanting to be only negative...the units were very clean and well looked after, just tired and in need of an update.

If you didn't have children this might be an okay stop over but I wouldn't recommend for a family, not when for the price you can do a lot better elsewhere.
