Great location, exterior in need of a face lift but very comfortable, quiet and spacious. Shower pressure fabulous. Facilities great. Was same price as advertised on hotels.com which was a bit disappointing as I know they pay a percentage to hotels.com so would have been nice to have a discounted cost.

We stayed 2 nights and got a fantastic view of the volcano's the second day. The room was clean and tidy and had everything we needed for our stay. We had dinner at Jolly Good Fellows out the front of the Inn both nights which suited us and drove to Tongariro National Park which was a lovely drive from there....

This location was very hard to beat. Great views out over the lake from the upstairs rooms and a easy walking distance into town. The Irish bar out the front is a great social spot with plenty of tasty pub food options. Accommodation is Affordable with all the basics covered well.

The hotel was comfortable and had a great bathroom. The water pressure in the shower was fantastic! The kitchenette we had didn't have a stove or sink but a fridge and some bench space. Washing machines and dryers were located on site and could be used for a small fee. We were located right next door to a restaurant (Jolly...

The hotel was booked for us by our travel company. There is an English pub next-door which is very reasonable. The rooms mainly look out upon each other or the parking lot not the Lakeview which is unfortunate. The room we had is motel style with sliding doors for entry from the parking lot. The room is a reasonable size...

The room was comfortable, spacious, clean and the service was good. Perhaps I didn't read the description property but our ground floor room only had a view of the car park and reception. Also there is a road between the motel and the lake. The spa in the enclosed, very ordinary bathroom was also not particularly inviting so we didn't...

We stayed here for 3 nights before heading to do the Tongariro Alpine Crossing. Was surprised to find cooktop and all the essentials! Comfy bed- except king was 2 singles pushed together. Bathroom and bedroom very clean. Enjoyed our stay a lot. About a km to the town/grocery store.
