We had two great nights at this motel in Turangi, which is a great option if you want to explore Tongariro National Park, without having to drive from Taupo. There's not much in Turangi, but it's also a more quiet and peacefull place compared to nearby Taupo.
We stayed at a two bedroom unit, which had all we needed. The style was a bit old fashioned, but that just added to its charm. The owner of the place has great knowledge of the area (and especially fishing, if you are in to that). From the property is also great views of the nearby volcanoes in Tongariro National Park.
