Two of us stayed in November for two nights. The room was large and clean and th hot pool was great.
However, the French windows did not shut properly, the kitchen cupboard door was broken and there was only one large plate and no teaspoons. We were given another plate on request and he also gave us a jam spoon to use as a teaspoon! The owner was friendly and helpful and willing to assist. We would stay again, but hope that some cosmetic improvements would be made.

Room Tip: Large, clean but needs attention

For the last decade or so we spend a night here to soak in the hot pools after a weeks trout fishing before flying out of NZ.

The new owners have been there a couple of years now and bit by bit they are renovating and renewing and it is starting to show the benefits. The staff there last weekend were lovely and nothing was too much trouble.

We stayed in the "House" which can sleep about 12 with 4br's and 4 bathrooms. Multiple TV's, good kitchen/dining area and a mostly private garden and deck with BBQ right next to the river and outdoor hot pool. Good value for money and the place is clean and spacious.

Close enough to walk to town and big thermal parkland across the road as well as local shops etc. You can even catch a trout in the river outside the motel.

All in all .... for the price, it is pretty good value and as I said in the title - they are renovating and renewing and deserve some credit for that

We will be back net year.

Room Tip: The big house is great for a family or 2 or just a bunch of friends

I know that some of the other reviews are bad, but we've actually stayed here twice now for big family trips. The place is no five star hotel but it is what it is. The pictures on their website is pretty much spot on. The rooms aren't flash, but it does the job. Beds a confortable, rooms are clean. plenty of parking, and the ones we stayed in both had LCD tv's, and one had wifi.

Its a good place to all to get together, drink, have a swim. etc.

I think if they just renovated a bit, a bit of paint and repair here and there, and free wifi in all the rooms. get rid of all the cubboards, as you don't need them and then they don't need cleaning. then this could be a top place.

Would I stay here again. Definitely.

Room Tip: The two story house has better access to the pool. But the single 4 bedroom one has free wifi.

This motel is quite old which I don't mind. But the fact that the unit we stayed in was really filthy was totally unacceptable. There is no way it had been vacuumed, the edges of the shower, skirtings, window ledges, inside of doors were REALLY dirty. Some of the grime was so thick we had to scrap it off to get to paint underneath (grime was dark brown with white paint underneath). Old itinerary left on couch from prior people, 2 dirty toothbrushes lying down side of bathroom vanity, bathroom vanity drawers so dirty you would not ever want to put anything inside them. Curtains fell down when closed. When you opened kitchen cupboards they stunk of old rotten wood!! Two operating hot pools with scum around the edge. As for bird aviary??? Couldn't find that!
This place must eventually go broke because I cant see how they could ever get repeat business. Should be taken out of any travel listings.

Room Tip: Dont choose any!!

We paid only $50 for the night but even for that amount we were not impressed. The carpet was old and marked and had a terrible smell and the flooring in the bathroom was coming away from the edges everything is very tired and needs updating the whole complex is "shabby" and run down. The sheets and towels were clean and the bed comfortable but all the other funishings were old and past their use by date. The owners need to do some maintenance to bring this complex up to standard.
