The motel is at the South end of the town about a 5 minute drive away. The owners were very helpful and friendly with good sensible suggestions for what to do in the area and plenty of discount coupons. The accommodation is clean with full cooking facilities. We bought supplies from the supermarket a couple of minutes drive away and cooked for ourselves. There are also DVD's to borrow from reception. There are a couple of private thermally heated spa pools at the motel as well as a pool and BBQ. On the hosts suggestion we visited Wai -O-Tapu which is not as "touristy" perhaps as some options in the area and is a good choice for viewing the geo thermal sights. Near to Wai O Tapu is the Waikite Valley Thermal Pools. These appear to be a cheaper way to experience a thermal spa than some of the options in town. It was quiet during our visit and a good way to relax after a morning at Wai O Tapu.
