The advantage of this property is its convenient location on a road trip between Wellington and Auckland, plus the easy availability of the hot pools, right outside the motel units. the children loved the trampoline. Plenty of room in the family unit which sleeps 7.

Location was great, and the hot pools were lovely. Easy close walk to see the natural hot springs. The room was basic, but all we needed. Warm and lots of space. Beds were all a bit tired though, so didn't have the greatest sleep.

My apologies for the road noise. Our main road is not normally this busy but due to the road closure of SH1 the traffic was being diverted our way. Thank you for your feedback though.
