TONGARIRO RIVER MOTEL
TRM’s latest Guests response:
My partner and I were travelling down the North Island by car and got caught in a nasty storm. We decided it would be best to find a place to stay for the night as we could barely see the road and were getting quite sleepy. We came across the Tongariro River Motel and I use the term motel lightly here, the rooms were practically apartments. Fully functioning separate little condos in fact. It really made us feel at home. It is also located very close to a New World, so that was quite the perk. Pip was extremely welcoming- her kind-hearted nature was very refreshing. We enjoyed chatting with her while we were organizing our room stay. We’ve been travelling for quite some time and it was so nice to finally get to relax. We very much enjoyed our stay and the price is one that cannot be beat! We will be recommending this to all our friends and family!
The studio room was more than that, with separate kitchen area and bathroom/toilet. The room was comfortable, very clean, and well kept. limited wifi, but sufficient for what we needed it for. Our hosts were friendly and enjoyed a chat. Little Pumpkin the boxer is just gorgeous.
We recommend dinner at the tavern – delicious food, friendly service, and good live band playing.
Following is the description from THE ROUGH GUIDE to New Zealand:
“Homely comfortable motel that is hugely popular with anglers partly for its rod racks and smoker, but mainly because of its “manager”, a lovable boxer named Boof. The friendly owner runs a lively website on everything to do with Turangi and trout fishing in particular.”
(Note: TRM is their ‘chosen preferred selected’ Turangi accommodation confirmed by the “star” rating)
