Friendly and extremely helpful staff

Posted Apr 12, 2015

Pros: Quiet, friendly staff, who held a room for us for 3 days without any confirmation from us.
Location: Hiking in Tongariro National Park.
We booked this motel, because it was close to Tongariro National Park and not as expensive to stay as in the National Park. Our room had a small kitchen, so we could cook our own food. The motel stored our extra luggage while we hiked for 3 days and held a room for us without confirmation despite it was their last room. Thank you very much!

Nice hotel just outside Tongariro National Park

Posted Apr 07, 2015

Pros: We liked the location and the large rooms with back patio.
Location: The hotel is near town with restaurants and near fishing. It even had a BBQ area for cooking your own fish.
Very comfortable and clean hotel with a very nice back deck patio. Convenient location about 45 minutes from Tongariro National Park. Close to town with restaurants. Quiet location. The room was large with two bedrooms making it very comfortable for our family of 4. Thanks for a great stay!

Perfect in Every Way

We chose Judge's Pool for our base to see Tongariro National Park. It was very easy to get to this small, personal motel; it's perfectly quiet; you can park immediately in front of your unit and most have covered access! That's important for sun or rsain in NZ. Most units have two or three steps up to access the unit; a couple of large units seemed to have a level access. I'm fussy and I have no complaints about this place. Some commentors said the motel needed refurbishing but our room was totally redone and from driving by, I think the others are, too. If you're from another country and not aware, you need to press a matching switch to use any electrical unit. I accidentally turned off our fridge! This motel is run by the owners and they are delightful. We were there four nights and would stay again.

The best hotel during our NZ tour

Posted Jan 06, 2015 on

I stayed with 3 friends and though 4th person was a last minute change, there was no problem at the hotel. Polish flag was hanged to welcome us and we received very useful advices about Tongariro pass weather. They called few places to check if it is safe. Rooms were spacious, no issues with internet (as much as you needed, where in most of the places you just get 50 MB per day per person), car space in front of the chalet and a barbecue place were we enjoyed our dinners. Vey good location for visit to Tongariro Nat Park and just few minutes by car to thermal pools. With around 10 hotels during or NZ tour, we consider this one the best.
