    It is a lovely motel, we enjoyed the space in our unit and all the facilities

  • Older travelers

    Staff were friendly and helpful. Gave excellent info as to where locals go and do. This was great in deciding what activities to do and not to do. Saved us a fair bit of money. This accommodation is out of the city and the sulphur smells. Our room was spotless the bed was excellent and having our own spa on the patio was great.

    Hosts, room, location - all round great stay, very comfortable.

    Karen and staff made us feel most welcome. The facilities were well kept, spacious and very comfortable. Close to tourist attractions but far enough away that you couldn't smell the thermal activity which is very strong in some places.

    Not much really. The wifi was a bit hit and miss which can be an issue for a sixteen year old.

  • Older travelers

    Located in a quiet street, clean and well appointed, friendly staff, excellent value for money

  • Single
    10.0

    Staff were very friendly and helpful. Room was very pleasant and private spa was great! Good value for money.

    No dvd player and was a bit annoying that phone calls had to go through reception (wasn't able to obtain direct room phone number).

  • Family with children

    Great family motel. Spacious, and near the Rotorua family action - luge, Rainbow Soprings, Zorb etc. Rooms are well equipped, and beds are very comfy. We arrived on a cold night, and they had the heater on to heat up the room for us, plus we had electric blankets. I'd have to say the heater's probably not big enough for the size of the unit though. The owners are super friendly, and there's a pool and playground, plus a simple games room. Our room had a spa pool and opened onto a field and trees. We were woken by tuis singing. Would definitely recommend.

    This is an excellent resort run by some very genuine people. Great amenities and location Lovely rooms. The only improvement I would suggest is increasing the temperature of the heated dimming pool and spas. Thanks

  • Family with children

    Had spa pool, mini golf, swimming pool, playground and table tennis for the kids, and trout stream.

    Limited parking.....other than that value for money

    Beautiful facility at a lower-than-average price. Restaurant, free miniature golf, pool. Our "room" was a two-story apartment with living room, full kitchen and dining, a patio and a hot tub, looking out on a pasture with horses. All for less than we've been paying for ordinary rooms. Free wifi. The staff was very helpful with sightseeing suggestions.

  • Family with children

    Excellent Location close to major attractions. Great accommodation with heated swimming pool. Would definitely stay again.

    Nothing - excellent family hotel.

  • Older travelers
    9.6

    The management is very friendly and helpful. They recommended many sites to see and how to access them. This is a clean, spacious hotel set up, with a large kitchen area, hot tub in back and grounds to walk around on. The units are older, but clean and well kept. Out of the way location avoids the sulfur smell in town. We liked being out of the hustle and bustle of the summer crowds. Very quiet here.

    No complaints at all.

  • Older travelers

    Very kind reception Room spotlessly clean on arrival Small but nice kitchen area

    Very hot and no air condition, but was given a fan from friendly receptionist.Minute wash bowl in bathroom unusable.No shelving for cosmetic articles in bathroom and wardrobe was already full of pillows,blankets ironing board etc, so no place for clothes.. Maid didn't hoover or wash kitchen floor when she did room.

  • Family with children
    9.6

    Great service from the staff. Spacious, well equipped rooms and lots for the kids to do on site plus close to the major attractions.

    Could have been a bit cleaner and perhaps a fence for each unit - our 2 year old wanted to be out the back but could easily access the other units beside us.
