    Quite a way out of town, but close to a shop and reputable restaurant, this ordinary motel was just the ticket. Unfussy, clean, well supplied and efficiently run, it was excellent value and just what was required after a long drive.

    Travelled to Taupo with another couple. I won't lie, we pulled up and thought hmm, we were mistaken. Place is absolutely spotless. Basic accommodation. Bed was comfy! Paid $125 per night and felt it was good money for what we got. Would recommend.
