Love the free access hot pools. Very nice people who remembered us from our last visit.
Couldn't open doors or windows on a very hot night because of all the little bugs. The proprietor did tell us that it was an unusual occurance. The two towels provided are not really enough when ypu want to have a hot pool and a shower.
Close to town Very friendly owners
Lots of little flying insects that were irritating although harmless. A bit dated but clean
mineral pools and the bed was so comfy
the amount of bugs at night
My friend and I were greeted by the nicest couple. They showed us to our room and then showed us around all the facilities. They gave us local information like where to get a good meal. Even called avparticular restaurant for us to see if they were fully booked. I would highly recomend staying here.
Friendly and helpful owners/staff. The unit reminded me of an old kiwi bach from the 1950s/60s; don't be put off by this as it is part of the motel's kitschy charm. Clean and tidy. We were allocated a good size unit for two adults and two kids. Quiet. comfy beds. Free wi-fi. Parking right outside room. Hot pools on site for a dip. Would definitely go back.
Nothing really. If I'm being picky, the only (incredibly minor) suggestion is that the modern abstract art on the walls didn't really match the old skool retro decor. Some classic Kiwiana type icons on the wall would be more fitting. Don't let this put you off staying though.
the place is located outside of a town in a forest area during the evening all the room ceiling was fully with a gnats we had a terrible night
All of the above and the fact that BOB and his wife were very attentive w extra towels and lots of local info. This was an excellent value for our money and we will happily stay there again and have told our friends. They have hot spring pools which could use a bit of sprucing up, but we're clean and hot and very refreshing after our long drive...
This is a top of the line for a hotel in its $125.00 price range... Other than some paint in the hot pool area this is a real find. Off the beaten path (a +for us maybe not for most). Shhhhh. We like a room available when we want to go back
Really comfortable bed.
We had to fight with and army of bugs that appeared from nowhere
Friendly staff - always helpful Mineral pools - great
Lack of insect screens on windows - too many flies if windows open on hot days, too hot with windows closed. Lack of soap/shampoo etc. Overall needs some renovation
It's a handy location and the bed is comfortable but I thought it overpriced for the facilities- uncomfortable chairs and wonky seat on the toilet - small shower the shower head too low poorly furnished. Good bed though.
Access to hot pool looked difficult for slight disability poorly furnished.
Our rooms were spacious for 4 senior adults. Quiet. The reception by the owners was very friendly and informative. The hot mineral pools were lovely and spotless.
Looks old, but is so comfortable. The best beds we slept in in New Zealand. Has everything you need. The owners are super friendly and helpful. And the hot pools are wonderful. Loved it there and would have happily stayed longer.
private hot pools available
proximity to highway meant traffic speeding past at night, basic amenities
Good half way stop travelling from Wellington to Auckland. Great hot pools to relax in.
Friendly and helpful staff, loved the Mineral pools. Unique cooking experience close by (Poia) - steam earth oven
Pillow case has the stain
Clean. Friendly owners. Quiet place.
Super comfortable bed.friendly owners.Hot mineral spring water baths. Large rooms.Quiet area.Mid way between Taupo and the snow.Not the newest motel but affordable and comfortable.
Weak shower pressure.
Private hot pools Friendly hosts Interesting area
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!
