Pretty much your basic Motel but the bathroom was huge, the grounds were very nicely maintained, nice little kitchenette in the room. Breakfast served to your room for a small fee and it is a pretty good breakfast. The biggest plus is the on site restaurant, the food was excellent! I had the Lamb Rump special and it was outstanding!...

The room and amenities were great. The staff (from the groundsmen to the receptionists to the cleaners) and their service even better. The Restaurant is also definitely worth trying. Great location for accessing Skyline etc. Looking forward to returning soon.

We had a room, with a separate bedroom. in the bedroom were two queen-sized beds, but not much room to get around the beds. If we had been with more people than just us, it could have been quite cramped. We felt it was not the best of value at the price we paid, as breakfast was not included. The...

Stayed here for just one night as were going to the local Maori experience and it fitted in with our plans. Firstly, what a fantastic and most friendly welcome from Karen on the front desk. Made us laugh and feel oh so welcome following a long drive that day. The room was spotless, well kitted out for everything and the...

We stayed here for two nights. The hotel is close to town and attractions. The units are comfortable if a bit dated. Very clean. The grounds are well kept. A stream runs through the property. Mini golf on site. Staff is very helpful. Laundry on site. Restaurant was excellent. We had dinner there one evening and the chef is first-rate....

Very convenient location if touring by car Ten minutes drive from center and supermarkets within walking distance. Rooms are spacious and vey clean. Ideal for families or couples. Was able to check in early. Self catering so can economise. If in the area again will certainly use!

This accommodation is situated a few hundred metres away from the Rotorua Skyline (gondolas) and a 10 - 15 minute drive from the city centre. In other words it is on the outskirts of town and not near the centre. The lady at the front desk was excellent.....friendly, knowledgeable and very helpful in pointing out what to see in Rotorua....

We stayed here recently and had a lovely time. We had a 3 bedroom apartment which had everything we needed including a spa and a lovely little back yard overlooking the pretty trout creek. The motel is walking distance to the gondola and all the mountain has to offer. We didn't eat in the restaurant so I can't comment on...

After our share of pokey studio apartments and a backpackers at the beginning of our NZ trip this place was a welcome change. We found the staff to be absolutely lovely, the room clean and the bed comfortable. The spa outside was so nice and relaxing. The only downside would be the shower situation as water goes everywhere which can...
