am letting you know that I wasn’t impressed with our room 21 Motel Room we recently stayed in to attend a wedding at the River Lodge. Others in our group had bigger rooms for the same price I might add. Our room smelt old and musty with squashed mosquitos on the walls and in curtains and looked very tired. No phone and poky little mirrors one couldn’t even get a full length view of how I looked for a wedding. Plugs scarce for appliances to do my hair, limited lighting and to top it off my husband couldn’t believe I had paid $125 a night for this standard of accommodation. How can you justify charging that much. We would have been better off travelling the extra distance and staying somewhere half decent in Taupo. I seriously think you need to look at your prices and make some major makeovers if you expect people to pay that price. We have stayed in many motels throughout NZ and this would have to be the biggest rip-off ever. I am contemplating on advising the River Lodge our thoughts as they may want to reconsider recommending your accommodation. My husband reckoned $80 would have been adequate for what we received.
