The motel is close to the centre of Turangi
The units are set in a grassed area.
My unit had a new(ish) counter and 2 kitchen cupboards
The unit had TV, fridge, iron, table, etc.
The noise insulation was completely absent. I could hear conversations from both sides and people talking out front. Next door’s TV was especially clear and loud. I tried to have a nap it was impossible with the noise. I was awoken at 06:30 by people talking outside – it was like they were in the room with me.
The room is dated, with old beds, old chairs and a stale old motel room smell. I had the windows (at the back) open all night and on returning from breakfast I was struck how strong the smell was.
The bathroom was small and badly laid out – just about OK for one person.
The front of the unit is fully glazed so that either you have no privacy (with people walking past immediately next to the windows) or you have to close the curtains and be in the dark.
This is a dated motel with very poor sound insulation that means I was disturbed by neighbour noise. I would never stay again. I am mystified by the positive reviews on Trip Advisor: it is as if they have stayed at another motel.
