We stayed here for two nights whilst visiting new zealand. There were some real positives but some real negatives also. Carol on reception was lovely, so friendly and helpful. We ate dinner one evening and the food was better than expected although the dining room is like an old 70s diner and in desperate need of some tlc. The views... More

This motel is basic and clean. We were greeted with friendly hospitality. What it offers and true to the name is a million dollar view through the large full length windows. The family room we booked was very spacious and nice layout. Unfortunately the bathroom was very cold but nothing we can't deal with. Another downside was the noise from... More

Ideal overnight stay. Arrived late, left early. Comfortable bed, clean and tidy although small room. Bathroom adequate although no soap or toiletries. Situated on the main road, although our room was away from the road and quiet.

This was a last minute stay when the weather turned really nasty. Super friendly staff who had helped me out once before when they were full, so stayed this time. The price is very reasonable, but the unit was a bit of a throwback to the 70s and 80s. There was plenty of space for a kitchenette, but you needed... More

I stayed here while exploring the Waitomo caves. I did a black water rafting adventure through the caves, and one of the benefits of this inn is the laundry service. Being able to wash my clothing and swimsuit immediately after being dunked in cave water was a great blessing. The food was FANTASTIC. There is a restaurant attached to the... More

We stayed four nights while exploring the Waitomo area. Our room was in the top block, and there were excellent views across the Te Kuiti township and valley. The room faced into the afternoon sun and was very warm towards the end of the day. The room was clean, and all the facilities worked. The cooker was a simple 2... More

This property was booked for me by one of my sisters. I looked at the tripadvisor reviews, as everyone should. Previous reviews were quite varied. To those who bagged it - "get a life".
