A nice simple motel with a warm welcome. The unit we had was very clean and tidy and serviced daily. The owners were very helpful and nothing seemed to be too much trouble. We opted to have our breakfasts in the motel; we only wanted juice and toast but they were delivered at the promised time and proved very acceptable. The only minor downside is that some of the units are located on opposite side of the main road to the reception and pool and it can be tricky to cross at times - but there is always the phone provided in the room to call the reception desk. You can hear the traffic but it was not a problem for us.

Exactly what we needed on a stopover to the waitomo caves. We were warmly greeted when we arrived and offered an upgrade to a one bedroom suite. Excellent facilities to cook and enough room for everyone to spread out! Recommend for a stopover

Stayed here on the Saturday night in a family unit on the Easter long weekend. Couldn't pick up internet, only outside. Said WIFI was free but wouldn't connect. Very dated dark rooms but was clean. Bed sheets smelt old and the pillows were really hard. Room was cheap for the amount of people staying so didn't really expect much. Friendly staff and close to Otorohange so that was good but would not stay again.

Room Tip: Request a room close to the reception office for internet however had another party with us who had...

Stayed here for one night with my husband and two young children (3 yrs and 1 yr). We booked a 2 bedroom unit and it was perfect for our needs. The motel is nice and clean and comfortable, as well as great value.
The motel was easy to find and was well equipped for preparing meals there. The beds were super comfy and a portacot was provided for our youngest. Whilst we could hear some of the heavy traffic on the road it was not particularly loud or annoying.
We really enjoyed our stay and I would definitely recommend this motel for families.
