“Quiet motel near town centre”
Reviewed March 1, 2007

My wife and I stayed here for three nights, having picked Turangi as the base for walking the Tongariro Crossing, which was one of the highlights of our time in New Zealand. We had a motel unit, with a large living/dining/kitchen area, bedroom and bathroom. The kitchen had a fridge, cooker and microwave. The decoration and furnishings were simple but pleasant. The staff were friendly and helpful. It was a short walk into town, where there wasn't much to do, apart from visit the Tourist Office and have a meal. We paid NZ$110/night, which was reasonable value for money.

One story motel. Quaint and friendly family atmosphere. Restaraunt was surprisingly good and they will bring the food directly to your room. Separate bedroom from TV room. Good for kids. Free newspaper.

Was warm in room when we arrived and there is no A/C (That is not unusual). Opened windows but bugs came in as there were no screens. Night air cooled off the room and the heat was not an issue. Stayed in Unit 11. The bed was very soft and made noise every time we moved. We both woke up a little stiff in the joints.

We liked the place especially the family feeling and would stay there again but we'd ask for a different unit with a better bed. Length of stay: one night.

  • Liked — The food and the friendly people
  • Disliked — The soft, noisy bed
  • Stayed December 2006, traveled with family

Nice motel in a not-very happening area. The reason I picked it was its proximity to Tongariro Nat'l Park, which was about a 45 min. drive from the hotel.

Has a rustic cabin-like feel with logs/wood panelling in the rooms. The staff was friendly.
