Do get a room with the lake view and the indoor jacuzzi. Really worth it in the cold weather. Room is big and the view is awesome. There's a small kitchenette and a microwave. Easy for family but I would not recommend for small children. Parking is available for free. The owners live here so its easy to check in...

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay as always. The rooms are very clean and tidy and look great after fairly recently being redone/upgraded. The staff were always friendly and very helpful which was much appreciated. This Motel is also in a great location for lake access and views

Stay here every Easter great rooms and great view. Close to town not to far to walk. Love the spa in the room. Decent sized rooms with a small balcony good to sit out side with a wine and take in the view. Recently updated bathroom. Has a nice kitchenette and good sized fridge

Absolutely love our stay. We have found a new favourite. Lake view to die for. Definitely coming back. 10/10. Lovely staff, very friendly. Great motto: arrive as strangers, leave as friends. Life time friends for sure.

An apartment with a great view of the lake and excellent facilities, especially the spa bath which soothed our aching muscles after a long day in Tongariro National Park. A bit of a walk into town, but nearby restaurants sufficed.

Such a beautiful place! We turned up and we were blown away by the room and not to mention the amazing view! The location was perfect a 10 minute walk to restaurants and bars. The room was modern, warm, clean and really roomy. Our bed overlooked the lake with a massive spa bath also in view of the stunning lake....

We had a room overlooking the lake with a balcony. Modern décor, spa bath in the room, flat screen TV, all in all a great room. Kitchenette had a 2 ring hob as well as microwave/fridge/toaster. Separate bathroom with shower. About 20 minutes walk into town. Free Wi-Fi and parking.
