          Two nights here - warm and comfy. Very clean and well equipped. Our unit was amazingly quiet, considering it is close to the highway (but just a little off). Reasonable pricing, too. Would definitely make this our first choice next time.

          Hi Oliver, we have patiently persevered with your misleading report for over five years. Tongariro River Motel does not have a restaurant, does not serve breakfasts as all units are self contained. So please, please remove or amend your comments.
