We have been touring NZ and had really found all motels to be of high quality. This one, as other reviewers have said, is really tired run down and in need of investment. Don't get me wrong, the room was clean and the people managing it were most helpful and friendly. The building and facilities are really old and not what we expect these days. In its present state it certainly is not worth 4 stars. We also made the mistake of going to Taupo when the iron man competition is on, avoid it unless you are really interested in a whole day of men doing many things to prove how fit they are, there were 1400 entries and so no peace any where.
