Fiona & Chris have made this hideaway lodge a delightful, eclectic, family-focused, fun retreat. We all loved Rotorua, & the privacy and peacefulness of Hideaway refreshed us. Grandma & Pa stayed in the biggest double-room with fireplace. Plenty of space for family game night and meals. Mom, Dad & grandsons enjoyed their room, as did the newlyweds! Clean, comfy bedding,...

The location is wonderful, easy to drive to any of the attractions. The hotel is set back a little bit off of the main road, so it is quiet. We stayed in a one bedroom accommodation. I liked the separate space. It also had a nice kitchen with stove/oven/microwave/fridge. There was also an area to grill out in the back.... More

Though not extremely spacious, the room with kitchenette was clean, quiet and relatively well-equipped. The location was very accessible, just off the main road into Rotorua, few minutes from the Agrodome, but after turning in it lives up to its name of hideaway, as if one has left the rest of the world behind. There is a playground with swing... More

We stayed in the largest unit at the Rotorua Hideaway Lodge that consisted of one double room and an additional family room, with a double bed plus two singles, which all shared a bathroom. There was also a sitting/dining/kitchen area, which was compact, but sufficed. The owners were extremely welcoming and the unit very clean. As mentioned in previous reviews... More

We signed up for the Hideaway at the last moment and were happy to find our room clean and ready to go. The location is right off the highway which is convenient, but also far enough off to avoid noise. Of course, in New Zealand, most people are asleep by 9am so traffic noise at night is a nonissue anyway.... More

Nothing to complain about at all - family friendly, excellent service, clean, economical... third time we've stayed. Nice to see that they have added double-glazed windows to reduce road noise.. pleasant touch, didn't think they needed it, but good to see they are always keen to improve. Bring your kids here!!

My second stay at this delightful place. My last stay was wonderful and I was made very welcome by the owners Fiona & Chris. It is so refreshing to find someone who doesn't just pay lip service.

We spent 3 nights in a two bedroom unit and it suited us perfectly. This is budget accommodation so it's not flash or fancy but you do get value for money. It was clean, comfortable and warm and our kids literally spent hours in the playground. Free unlimited (and effective) wifi was a bonus and Fiona was more than happy... More
