The Motel is in a good location, just a 10 - 15 minute walk into town and numerous restaurants, which we had to do as, although we would have had dinner at the motel, the owner said unfortunately this wouldn't be possible as there was insufficient food available for our (largish) party of 10 and we hadn't pre-warned him we...

We stayed here so we could do the Tongariro Alpine Crossing. The service and the friendly staff were excellent. Good facilities, clean tidy rooms, worth the stay. If you like dogs they have a very friendly animal called: Brody. He's a border collie, not your usual black and white one but a blond haired dog. You will tire out playing...

We loved our stay at Tussock Grove. Our time here started off great, the host Chris was very accommodating, staying up late in order to check us in and advise us he had noted our dietary requirements that we had sent earlier. Our room was spacious, clean and comfy. We had a large upstairs bedroom and a cozy downstairs lounge,...

We got a grabone for this place to do the tongoriro crossing. Great place where the owners were very accomodating to stay up late for us to arrive from Auckland on a Friday after work. They had everything organised and ready for us including meal packs. The place is getting a bit dated but overall still quite comfortable. Spa pool...

The hosts are very friendly and always willing to help. The room is very comfortable, so also the bed. Nice mail made by the owners and a very nice Spa pool. The only minus is that it is a litte bit noisy, you can hear the neigbours in the room beside you.

Very traditional lodge. Friendly welcome. Good location close to town shops and bars. Room was strange. Half lounge downstairs that was hard to use for anything. Good for storage if skiing I guess. My title sums it up.

We had 4 nights here during ski season. We were warmly greeted by Chris, the owner, who is friendly, knowledgable and helpful. The rooms are cosy and comfortable and I think all loft configuration. Brody the dog is delightful. The lounge and dining room are also comfortable and inviting. Breakfast was good value perfectly proportioned. My only hesitation in giving...

We stayed here for a skiing trip for two nights in a Queen Mezzanine Room. Our room was fantastic with a warm shower, comfy bed and everything else we needed! Chris and his wife were extremely welcoming and really made us feel at home. We ate one dinner and two breakfast at the hotel and LOVED all of the meals....

I loved this cute little place! I stayed here for three nights with a partner to go skiing (I'm from Australia). It was good value and very cosy! The couple that run the place were lovely and very accommodating. They had a really beautiful dog too. Its almost like being at home. There is a nice common area with a...
