Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Not at all as promissed. Bad building noise. Limited access to grounds. Small pool. Now warning. The cafe / restaurants are in drivind distance. No discount offered. No exuse. Some road noise must be expected. Check before booking. Might get better.

Very noisey! Rooms are right by SH1, traffic and trucks going by ALL throughout the night. Mattress is super hard and horrible pillows. Unfortunately, no sleep on our much needed long holiday weekend. We asked to move rooms to other side of property noting rooms were available at the time, but were declined. Very basic room amenities, tiny tv with no Sky TV. Went to local tavern to watch the rugby World Cup. No daily servicing or towel replacements. Room smelly and we kept opening doors to let air flow through. Could do with a deep clean and refresh. Pool is freezing, but useful for anti-inflammation leg soak or if you’re a overheated person. The upside, handy to the town centre for dining options and to get groceries. I did the Tongariro crossing, the hike was more difficult with lack of sleep. Had we of known we wouldn’t have booked there. So if you want sleep or a restful stay, suggest avoid units 1-9 and ask to try a room on other side of property. Disappointing, but giving a genuine review so travellers and hikers are aware.

Great sized unit and nice and clean and well set up. Unfortunately we were given a unit at the road side of the motel. The noise from the road is incredible and it never stops. Unfortunately the bedroom is right by the road and it was impossible to sleep. I’ve stayed before in a different unit which was ok but make sure you ask where the unit is before booking as if it’s road side. Ask for a different one

Arrived at 11pm to a room that had not been cleaned. Bed completely a mess, see photo, bathroom with zero toilet paper and no unused towels. Called the duty manager who replied that “they must have missed it”. Who are they ? She instructed me where some extra sheets were located and I stripped and made the bed. Next morning same lady offered a complete refund that as of 10 days post stay has still not arrived. After 2 follow ups, one by phone and one email. The property is generally unkept and with the issues I have experienced I suggest anyone thinking about staying here gives it a miss.

I guess it really depends on what you are looking for. Is it a stay? Or is it just a bed? We needed just a bed. They provided one. And a bathroom. This was just a place to lay our heads. It is really in sad condition. Looks like they are trying to make changes. But all in all, just average---maybe a little less...

Stopped over here for one night. We checked in late and left early so sadly never got to use the pool. Easy check in. Nice room with everything that we needed. Big bathroom with plenty of soap and shampoo supplied. As a non tea and coffee drinker they even had a couple of hot chocolate sachets. Would definitely stay here again.

We had 2 nights at the Leisure Lodge. Everything was so amazing! The staff was the sweetest and the rooms were clean and cozy! Always greeted with a smile, and everyone was so helpful! Would definitely stay there again, if I have the chance! Thanks for a great stay!

Dirty and the rooms smell badly. Bathroom floor is not clean either, had hair on the floor. Wouldn’t take much to keep it up a little bit. Such a shame as it does have things to offer for kids. A little upgrade and why do you need ripped curtains at the entrance?
