Customer Reviews

“The motel had recently been remodelled, and while it had been charming before, it looks wonderful now!”

Beatrice, Kazakhstan

"The perfect retreat, I came away feeling relaxed and recharged. I'm coming back again. Going to try to plan it on a full moon. It was the best to soak in the hot pools under a beautiful starry sky, framed by meadows, horses and a mountain."

Beverly, Wellington

"Awesome location if doing the Tongariro Crossing. Super friendly and helpful hosts. Excellent parking. Comfy beds and pillows, with decent linen. Awesome shower with good pressure. All rooms were immaculately clean ... we'll be back!"
