We were desperate as Taupo was full to bursting due to the Auckland region holiday to celebrate 175 years. We drove miles and miles and eventually ended here at 8pm having got the last room by phone. Our book said 'rural views' WHAT ?!! it looked out onto the back of a 20 foot steel building about 10 feet away,...

We ended up here after being bounced from Twin Rivers. Central Park Motor inn is just a standard motel room , There is nothing to complain about but there is nothing to make it stand out. Even small things like hooks for clothes in the bathroom would help. We had been planning to have dinner at the restaurant on one...

Had family unit that was on the main road. Road noise+++, squeaky floor boards+++,wallpaper peeling off in every room! unfinished gib board and electrical wiring with multiple multiplugs that wouldn't get a code of compliance and no smoke alarms. Advertised restaurant no longer open over the weekend. All and all very tired. Clean but way overpriced for $230/night.

This is a reasonably dated Motel but the rooms are clean. As the other reviews say the lower level drive way needs to be re-paved. No complaint with the bathroom – nice and spacious with a spa bath – shower has good pressure. Bed seemed a little uncomfortable at the start but in saying that I had a good night’s...

This is quite an old motel and the decor is very dated, but it was clean and quiet. It has a bar and restaurant attached. Don't expect fine dining cuisine but the food was good home cooked fare. Very casual check in procedure and we thought the owners could be a little friendlier and more engaging but they were busy....

We found ourselves stranded in Taumaranui due to road closures and in need of a place to spend the night. Easily found off the main road we pulled into Central Park Motor Inn. Which is about the only positive thing to say. The beds were unbelievably uncomfortable and the bedding whilst clean was very dated and the bedcover was the...

The rooms are ok but very expensive for what they are. One little fan heater struggles to heat a room in Taumarunui in winter. Kiwi host course wouldn't go a miss. Restaurant is once again expensive for what it is, rubbery dry chicken. No asking did we want dessert or a coffee
