“convenient stop”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 April 2014

Clean and convenient. Little outside of town, so took advantage of the kitchenette one night. One big annoyance was that truckers use the large parking lot along the highway as a rest stop (our room was nearest to the end), so the constant large traffic was troublesome for a somewhat light sleeper. There is no Wi-Fi in the rooms but internet is available for use in the reception area. It would have been nice to use the spa, however it wasn’t heated while we were there.

Very nice rooms. Large, with plenty of space to spread out. Nice Desk for the laptop. LCD TV...Shower and bath room are large and nice. Very clean. There are patio doors with decks and ours overlooked green space, some i think look at the parking lot. Nice!

Wifi is not generally available in the rooms, only the bar and restaurand. Thus our 3 rating.

Room Tip: Ask for a room looking at green space

We stayed here for a mid-journey break and the location was excellent for that purpose. The rooms were comfortable (we had 2 adjoining studio units for our family.) The grounds are tidy and while handy to the state highway the room was quiet.

The only downside for us was that there wasn't a lot for kids to do - no play area and no Sky. It didn't matter for a family stopover, but it's a better location for couples (or people on their own) rather than for families.

I recently had a one night stop over here. the rooms were very comfortable and quiet. the service in the bar and restaurant as great, the kitchen did a top job with my venison steak, followed by a passionfruit tart. the hosts are very friendly and happy to stop and chat.

We stayed this motel 1 night for 4 adults and 1 kid it was quite cozy and nice room. Clean and tidy.Not too expensive even though high season. We regrettably did't try the restaurant and the spa. They locate next to the river my hus enjoyed river side walking in the morning. We absolutely like this simple old(but room was renovated) motel. We also like Turangi village, good atmosphere.

We stopped by for two Nights on our way down South. The rooms were clean and furnished sufficent. Not the newest furnitsher and the beds are a bit soft and short. The staff is friendly and helpful like most of the Kiwis. The Highlight ist the Restaurant with it. I dont know where they got the Chef from, but the food is excellent. A good Selektion of wines and, here again, very friendly and chatty. The small city Center is in walking distance and rental Bikes to explore the fantastic scenery around the river or a rafting tour agency are also around.
