5 out of 5

Ausgangspunkt für Tongariro Crossing

Cons: Als wir kurz vor 10 Uhr auschecken wollten, war keiner da
Location: Tongariro Crossing, Lake Taupo
Motel ist ein angenehmer Ausgangspunkt für das Tongariro Crossing. (Man kann mit dem Shuttle direkt vom Motel abgeholt werden.) Gute Lage, Supermarkt (New World) 5 Minuten entfernt, Kochmöglichkeit im Zimmer vorhanden
