We needed a unit with an oven so we could cook dinner and took the offer of a unit in the front part of the motel for $85. The oven worked well after some help from the motel operator. The bed was comfortable and the room was quite spacious. There is a dairy opposite and a service station right next...

I had just one night here - in room 30 - I needed cooktop so I was given this two bedroom unit as the other units only have microwaves. This is a very spacious unit that sleeps four. Everything you need for a comfortable stay, plus free wifi - albeit a bit slow. The large bathroom has a spa bath...

Pleasantly surprised after reading other reviews. Friendly welcome and helpful host. Room was spotless, spacious and comfortable. Electric blanket on the bed ( frost forecast) which kept us toasty. Very good meal in the restaurant. Waitress was new but very attentive. Venison was beautifully cooked and very tender with large portions. Desserts were obviously cooked to order and although they...

On the positive side of things, Central Park is close to town, is clean, has spacious rooms, and jacuzzi tubs in the bathroom with in wall towel heaters. On the negative side, is lacks any style or ambiance, has a plug in the wall electric room heater (which worked well, but was surprising to find this was the only heat...

The room facilities were good, clean and the main room was very spacious. Also the spa bath was big. Nothing to get excited about though. Probably wouldn't stay there again but that's more to do with the actual town being boring more than anything else!.

This motel was very clean and spacious. They have a dining room attached where we were able to have a continental breakfast as well as dinner. We were a large bus group, and we found them very helpful. Our driver's room was free of charge which was much appreciated.

We were desperate as Taupo was full to bursting due to the Auckland region holiday to celebrate 175 years. We drove miles and miles and eventually ended here at 8pm having got the last room by phone. Our book said 'rural views' WHAT ?!! it looked out onto the back of a 20 foot steel building about 10 feet away,...

We ended up here after being bounced from Twin Rivers. Central Park Motor inn is just a standard motel room , There is nothing to complain about but there is nothing to make it stand out. Even small things like hooks for clothes in the bathroom would help. We had been planning to have dinner at the restaurant on one...
