Very good location for heading to the Forgotten World Adventures. Good service, very obliging. Décor a bit dated, but very clean and tidy. The room still had everything we needed for an over night stay

We booked a room with a double but were given a larger family unit with 2 bedrooms and parking immediately outside. The welcome was friendly, the bed comfortable and the fruit and home baking were a lovely touch. However, the decor was seventies style and felt very tired, the cooker had a broken ring which wouldn't support a saucepan, a cockroach came out from under the microwave while we cooked and a pillowcase was stained. However with a good location and friendly management, we would stay again.

Six of us stayed here for a couple of nights when we went on the Forgotten World Adventures railway trip. The hosts were welcoming and very helpful. The best place to stay for this tour as it was just across the road. Nice and quiet and well appointed. We would certainly stay here again and recommend it to friends.

When I found myself unexpectedly stranded in Taumaranui late at night
with no car (having been discharged from hospital - miles from home, no
taxis) the managers at Kelly's stepped in to help. They were helpful and
efficient. They even collected me in their own car, and offered me a
warm welcome with home-made cake. They were so kind and really went the
extra mile. I had a very comfortable night, the room was great. Thank you!

This is an older style motel which, like Kelly's, often have the advantage of being larger than average and often have solid wall partitions thereby reducing the noise from neighbours compared to stud partitions. There was a full kitchen and an efficient air pump which we needed as it was pretty cold. The hosts were friendly and there was a nice touch with welcoming fruit and home made cake. Although the fittings were old, they worked and the unit was very clean.

The negative aspects included the lack of Wifi and there was some noise from the adjacent main road and the very occasional train. However, the bed was comfortable and once asleep, we slept well. Although not perfect, we'd go back.
