We stayed at the Judges Pool Motel (named after a nearby fishing spot) for three nights and would definitely stay again. The units are extremely clean and comfortable, with hotel standard sheets and bathroom. The unit was serviced each day while we were out enjoying the many local attractions - Turoa and Whakapapa Skifields, the Chateau, Tokaanu Hotpools, Taupo etc. The owners and their three gorrgeous cats were very friendly! Our one bedroom unit was large enough for a family of four as kids can sleep on the two single beds in the lounge. Flatscreen tv, dvd player, heatpump and microwave were all up to date and made our stay more comfortable.
There is a covered bbq area with seating close to the units. You can borrow their dvds and even buy free range eggs for 30c each - a real bargain!
