We drove into a lush garden which was the grounds of the motel and were shown to our room immediately. I felt at home and very comfortable right away. I loved this motel! The room had 2 bedrooms, a kitchen and a sitting room with two comfortable couches. The beds were very comfortable and the shower had lots of hot water, good thick towels. Outside the gorgeous grounds, the Tongariro River flows and it is a lovely walk along the river to the bridge. This is my favourite hotel in the world because it is homey and beautiful.

Our hiking group stayed 2 nights at this casual, properly maintained and well treed property.

Each couple had their own spacious suite. Simply furnished and comfortable, we had a two bedroom with ample kitchen, large living room and clean modern bathrooms.

Our group leaders cooked dinner for us at the outdoor bbq. We crossed Tongariro while there...and returned to Creel exhausted for a comfortable night.

It is a lovely place to stay with it's beautiful gardens and close proximity to the Tongariro River. We've stayed several times before and it's still good. We're not fishing people but do enjoy walking and the river track is right there.

We spent a couple of nights at Creel Lodge while hiking the Alpine Crossing. This is a very comfortable, clean and quiet place to stay. We stayed in several vacation rentals and hotels while in New Zealand and the Creel ranks right at the top. Very spacious, complete cooking facilities and comfortable place to relax. The grounds are very nice. People running the place were extremely helpful and friendly. If we go back we will stay again.
