On recommendation from family, we stayed at the Rainbow Motel en route from Auckland to Wellington. We stayed in the one bedroom unit. The decor is cute and retro and the rooms are spacious and immaculately clean. The bed was super comfortable - had a great sleep! Hosts Ann and Bob are incredibly friendly and very helpful. Our highlight was the private thermal pools (water from natural hot springs) where you can have a soak after a long drive and look out at the stars. One thing though, the walls are very thin and can get a bit of noise from the next rooms so bring ear plugs. Otherwise we loved the stay and would definitely come again!
