Basic accommodation with everything you need. We really enjoyed the hot pools on the property and riverside location. Close to walk to the church and lake boardwalk. With some maintenance the place could be great: new towels, fix leaky taps, garbage bin in bathroom. We appreciated the fridge, microwave, toaster, and kettle, and used all to self-cater. We were surprised...

we stayed 2 nights. The rooms are clean, have microwave, fridge/freezer, and coffee making facilities. Many thermal hot pools- great!! Everything could do with some renovations. It's not far from the city, walking distance to Kuriger Park, close to the hospital.

This place was clean, spacious and cheap. It was central to the town and had comfortable beds. You get what you pay for and the price for this room was well worth what we got. I would definitely stay there again and would recommend it to friends. It was old fashioned but more than comfortable. There were not enough power...

room was tired; lacked maintenance (e.g. one shower door broken and leaning against the wall inside shower - management did not know ? some lights not working inside - no bulb) Bed was comfortable but the rest was below expectation and needed some sprucing up and some basic things fixed - yes it was not expensive and on the holiday...

We stayed here for the night whilst passing through Rotorua. Very welcoming staff with a nice hot spring and little pool. The room was a nice size, but very outdated. In need of a bit of refurb. It had tea and coffee facilities in the room which was nice. OK for a short stay.

I must say, I was attracted to the steam enveloping this little motel. It's is basic if not a bit run down. But it was clean and cheap (NZD80 a night) and it was a friendly place. It's a place just to sleep in and maybe to use their hot springs - it's not a flash touristy place by all...

7 hot spring baths, and it backs on to a crystal clear flowing stream. We had a hot spring bath and sauna 10 steps from our front and back doors. While the room was a little aged, it was spacious and self-contained, and the bed was so comfortable! A 10min walk into town, and no more than 10min drive to...

Stayed here for two nights. The room was spacious and clean, the staff were friendly, the pools were really warm and plentiful, and we were pleased to find tea and coffee, soap and shampoo were complimentary, and restocked. The room we were in turned out to be BYO duvet, and it's just one pillow each, so next time we go...

My friends and I drove down to Rotorua from Auckland after work on a Friday for the weekend. While we understand that accommodation typically has office hours, it is also standard practice to have a late check-in process. This hotel has no website and when booking through Expedia it says: Check-in time ends at 8pm. Your room will be guaranteed...

Our group of 5 adults attended a local conference for youth leaders. The location was ideal and we appreciated having hot pools to soak in in the evenings and a good base to return to. We would gladly return given the budget we have. It's not the Ritz, but it's great value for money - just over $20pp per night....
