Patrick couldn’t do enough for us. Superb rooms. Large, great bedding, towels and toiletries. Good heating and amazing decor. Pub next door serves excellent food and staff were all incredible. We were cycling 120km over the weekend and Patrick was full of tips and even offered to help if we got injured or stuck. We left our cars there and they were very accommodating. On return we booked a room to shower before heading back to Auckland and be put 10 towels and soap in the room for us. Also complimentary continental breakfast and lounge room. Microwave, toaster, cereal and milk. Thanks Patrick and your wife. Your service, food, motel was top notch.
We stayed here as we were visiting family in the area. Checking was easy and reception easily assessed from car park right next door. Room was clean without the frills found in city motels. The bed was comfortable and there was plenty of hot water with good water pressure. The room didn't have air conditioning so opened the window and provided enough fresh air. It was quiet with no street noise. Checked out early so left the key at reception desk.
You would think that with how popular the glow worm caves are, there would be good places to stay near there. There just isn't. This motel is 35 minutes from the caves in a tiny village. The owners a nice enough. The room a box with the most basic furnishings. It was clean, though the carpet was a bit stained. The a/c barely cooled the room. 25 when I went to sleep and 22 in the morning. While, not the hotel's fault, the power went out at 8:00 am and everything came to a halt. To make things worse, there was no not water for a shower. When I checked out, I mentioned this to the front desk and rather than apologize, she kind of shrugged. An apology would have gone a long way.
Great value for money, we had a twin room at the end of the building and the wifi didnt reach that far down but it was fine in the sitting room. The beds were very comfy, the room got stuffy quickly but opening the window fixed that and we didnt have to resort to the aircon, yay. Good shower and I think there is cereal available in the sitting room for breakfast. We did have to head into Te Kuiti for dinner as we couldnt find anything open on a Monday night.
We stayed overnight in Piopio to break a long road journey. The only motel in town, the Owls Nest is clean and comfortable and nicely decorated in keeping with its name. The hosts were friendly and we dined at the restaurant next door, the night Owl. While service was slow due to it being a busy night, the meal was good and the wait staff helpful. The motel has a basic breakfast service of cereal and toast and overall we were happy and would not hesitate to stay again.
