Forgotten World Motel

The Forgotten World Motel is situated in central Taumarunui near all amenities and offers a range of comfortable units, delicious breakfasts and is the starting point of most of the tours into the Forgotten World.

With a supermarket across the road and just a short stroll to the shopping hub of town with its array of restaurants and cafés, it is the best place to begin or finish your Forgotten World Adventure, or to break up your long drive between Wellington and Auckland.

The Motel is within easy reach of the ski fields of Mount Ruapehu and a wide range of outdoor activities, including riding the Forgotten World Railway in Rail Carts, Jet boating or canoeing down the Whanganui River, cycling the Timber Trail, hunting, trout fishing or tramping.

We have ample parking and are happy for your vehicle to remain with us while you are out exploring the Forgotten World.

Fantastic, helpful owners who go out of their way to accommodate. We turned up drenched after a thunderstorm riding bikes-- and were given a key and sorted things out later on with them. Washing and drying gear- no problem. an early breakfast-no problem. Close to all amenities. Rooms were fresh and clean, Thanks so much, and we will be staying again!!!

We booked on line, when the receptionist saw I had a knee problem she offered to change our room to ground floor for easier access, I really appreciated the fact she noticed my problem. We had a beautiful comfy bed, and even though it was winter we were lovely and warm, certainly didn't have a problem with noise....well if you call the fire siren in the wee small hours a nuisance. Poor local fire brigade all volunteer's and at everyone's beck and call 24/7. Fabulous breakfast excellent value. Will recommend to family and friends.

Reception , made you feel welcome. We were doing the 20 tunnels tour the following day so the motel was an excellent base ,and is also the pick up area. Nice clean rooms, a little road noise. Directly across the road from New World, BP and Mcdonalds. Would stay there again
