We loved staying at the motel for three nights. The family room (2 adjoining rooms) worked really well for us and the kids loved having their own space. Everything we needed to self cater and the motel was kept really clean, the housekeepers obviously took pride in their work. It was warm and cosy after a day at the snow and we would definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: Rooms further back from the main road will probably be quieter.

I have stayed three times here and this last time was the best so far. The Restaurant meal was the best steak meal ever I have had, their desserts were just fabulous too. They accommodate my dog staying with me in the Motel and that just makes this place even better, good access to walks for my pooch and lovely to be so close to the River. There is also a coffee cart close to the motel that operates most days.

Room Tip: I prefer the Self Contained Studio Unit, which gives just a wee bit more space for comfort.

I stayed here for a couple of nights fishing. The studio with kitchen rooms are great. At only $125 a night it's great value and the river is outside your door. I didn't use the bar/restaurant but they looked good

Thanks very much. A pity you missed the bar & restaurant as they are great. You can't get much closer to the river than our motel. If you try hard you can hear the fish swimming up the river!

A warm cosy place to stay for our family of 7. The food in the restaurant is amazing and the kids love dining here. We enjoyed a drink on the gorgous leather couches by the fire and grabbed a blanket from the blanket box to make ourselves even more at home. A great location to do a day trip to Taupo and there is so much to do in turangi with the highlights being the rock climbing wall and the mini golf for our kids. we also enjoyed the river loop walk.
Staff here are awesome and go the extra mile to accommodate us, we felt like part of the family.

Stayed again as a halfway stop with a young family on a trip to Wellington. Staff again friendly and helpful, with great priced accommodation that was fantastic for our needs (couple with 4 young children). Highly recommended - would gladly stay again.
