Score from 4 reviews Excellent
The location of the property. The friendliness and helpfulness of management and staff. The hot pools. The excellent beds. Personal contact and help.
The lack of insulation. The poor showers. Not good value for money. The bathroom facilities.
Greated by lovely owners, very friendly and showed us everything we needed. Beds were comfortable and very well presented and the outdoor spa was great.
No shampoo or soap for the shower? A hand poored jar (tiny) of milk rather than a sealed bottle. Gross.
This was a fantastic place to stay regardless whether travelling as a family or a couple. The hot pools were brillant, the beds comfy, the unit warm and the hosts so friendly.
Warm beds, customer service, the private thermal pools
Very good quality natural hot spring.
The hot spring pool, need some improvements, on a windy day, the cold wind can blow in and give you a headache. Maybe is ok if it is not too windy.
Everything else. The poorest motel I have experienced in my 75+ years.They seem to think that some dirty looking and dingy hot pools would cover all the negatives. Everything seemed to be in a state of near collapse.No capital appears to have been spent for decades!
Great play to stay with the hot pools.
The heater wasn't the best, with not feeling overly safe with kids.
Rememires of our childhood, great hot pools and comfortable bed. What more could you want. We will be back!
Very friendly helpful owners. Lovely hot pools. Good drying room. Handy location.
hot pools and lovely beds and linen
We had a great time, the motel is an hour drive to ski field which is really convinient. Hot pool was fantastic!
Fabulous private hotpools (could do with a lick of paint). Very clean sheets and towels.
Big NO-NO: Bob (one of the owners) coming into our room without knocking! Not sure what he wanted, but we felt he was just going to perve. Everything is worn and run down - we didn't mind this, but it should be reflected in the price.
the hot pool
The quiet location, spacious unit, easy access, thermal pools on site, helpful staff. And good value for money.
We had no complaints!
Comfy beds, hot water radiators, simple practical. We came for the mineral pool.
A bit pricey, and needs a carpet / rug on cold wooden floor.
Loved the friendliness of the owners and the mineral hot pools open 24 hours.
Good pools, Handy to Mountains and Lake and Taupo
Pools and location The owners were very friendly and helpful
Bed was saggy
hot pool, clean and comfortable bed, lots of pillows.
quite old and dated
The bed was really comfortable. Staff was friendly and helpful.
The room was reminiscent of the 1960's with old furniture and facilities.
Loved the hot mineral pools. Owners very friendly. Rooms very spacious. Stayed on our way to the South Island and enjoyed it so much we stayed on our way home again.
Everything. We stayed at about ten different places all over New Zealand and the Rainbow Motel is the one that we missed the most. The owners are genuinely brilliant people which cannot be matched. It's not the most luxurious of places (it's adventure you're in New Zealand for remember?) It was cosy, welcoming, and there's probably not enough great things I can say about it. If you're wanting to do the Tongariro crossing, there's a shuttle bus that can collect you for about $30-$40 return. The pools were something else! Can't help but think they'd be even better in the winter.
Having to leave.
Simple, clean, quiet, very friendly. Decor dated but classic Kiwi
nice hot pools staff
0ld kitchen units a lot of traffic noise at night
Congenial host with a mine of information.
