Well priced hotel in a good location
Really well priced hotel in a top spot next to the mighty Tongariro river. Service is friendly and responsive. Restaurant food is not to be missed. Try their lamb shanks, you won’t be disappointed.

Old but comfortable
Not what I expected, but it is a 3-star hotel. It was comfortable, but old. The restaurant was very good - best lamb shank we had in all of NZ.
