Parklands Motor Lodge
PO Box 142,
Arrived late, stayed for one night and left early on our way to Aukland to catch a flight. Excellent cabin with separate lounge, kitchen bedroom and shower. Tea, coffee and fresh milk provided. Bar on premises and just managed to get a couple of beers in before closing. Very helpful staff who made our short stay very easy, I would have been happy to stay for longer but unfortunately our time had run out. An excellent base for the Tongariro National Park and a great place to stop as its half way between Wellington and Aukland. Room Tip: All motel rooms are in the same 'strip' and all good. Stayed December 2014, travelled as a couple
Excellent half way stop between Auckland and Wellington. Craig and Angela were very welcoming. The unit was very clean and the facilities were all I needed. I would be happy to stay again. The lodge is close to all the shops and tourist attractions.
