      • Family with children

        Jill at Judges Pool Motel was very friendly and had turned on the heater in our room before we arrived. I especially appreciated the luxurious sheets and the free Wifi. I would definitely recommend this place to people.

      • Couple

        The units were fantastic. They were large, clean and the beds were very comfortable. The hosts Jill & Chris have a wealth of valuable tips and information and are more than happy to share their knowledge with you. Also the motel is away from the main highway with no traffic noise. Of all the motels we stayed in on our nz trip, Judges Pool Motel was the best by far for the price and facilities.

      • Family with children

        We enjoyed the warm welcome we received from the hosts at Judges Pool Motel. They allowed us to use their PC to access the internet. The beds were comfortable and the rooms were very clean.

      • Single

        Location near to river and also my relatives. Husband of owner couple extremely helpful. Would do anything for you.

        Grubby, tied, needs refreshing.

      • Older travelers

        Walking/tramping around and about the place

      • Group of friends

        Exellent room set up, clean and welcoming.

        My credit card wouldn't be accepted at check in, and my advice on how to do it was not heeded by the lady at front desk.

      • Couple

        Warm, good size, great set up with the BBQ's and fish smoker.

      • Family with children

        Very clean and comfortble. Spacious family (2 bedroom) unit.

      • Family with children

        Very quiet motel in a beautiful setting. Comfortable beds & good heating.

        An extra easy chair rather than a fourth bed would have been better for us. There was no oven but we did manage with the microwave. A lick of paint would freshen up this motel but it was perfectly comfortable as is & we will stay there again.

      • Older travelers

        Convenient central location, just off the main route, for those travelling from Wellington to Auckland. Close to a good fishing and touring area.Informative host, Excellent value for money.

      • Older travelers

        The unit was spacious and beddding very comfortable. The atmosphere was friendly and the staff very helpful.

      • Single

        friendly welcome, and use of barbecue for cooking. location is great as a base for Tongariro - both the mountain and the river for fishing.

        only minor issue was the cleanliness of the crockery in the unit

      • Group of friends

        Because there was group of us and we had booked 4 rooms, we liked the fact that is was easy for everyone to have their privacy but be close enough to each other that it made it easy to be sociable

      • Couple

        The size of the room is very spacious and with full and working condition kitchen.

      • Family with children

        Unpretentious but comfortable accommodations in Turangi, close to the magnificent Tongariro National Park. Quiet location and very good value for money.
