Tristen & Pete are the most experienced, welcoming, helpful and friendly hosts any one could ever ask for. They are passionate and knowledgeable about the area and make you feel...

Our hosts were the most helpful, friendly people you could meet without being intrusive. Rooms were good, massive bed. Warm pool and two spas. Only a microwave in the room but they did supply us with an electric fry pan. Recommended without doubt.

Top notch property, hospitality and value for money. The couple running the motel are very experienced, generous, passionate about their guests and helpful. We ended up extending our stay thanks purely to their ability to give us excellent tips on making the most of our stay in Rotorua. The jacuzzi in the room is a classy experience. They also give...

Perfect choice for mountain bikers. Easy ride to the Redwoods. Managed without a vehicle with free airport transfers and convenient bike station with all tools and a wash bay. This was our second trip. We wouldn't think of staying anywhere else. Felt like family as we walked in the door. No other accommodation is run by such a caring and...

My partner & I got rained out while camping and decided to book a cozy room with a spa for the night. The room was very spacious, with everything we could possibly need & the spa was lovely. Even the outdoor pool is heated which was a nice surprise!

We had a 4 night stay here in mid-December on the recommendation of my daughter and could not have been more pleased with the motel. Great location! Tristen and Pete could not have been more welcoming and made you feel like part of their extended family. Nothing was too much trouble and their helpful suggestions were spot-on and gratefully appreciated....

We traveled to New Zealand last November and stayed here to see hot springs and glow worms. Our stay couldn't have been nicer. Our hosts Pete and Tristan were so welcoming. Accommodation was spacious, fresh ground coffee and fresh milk provided. Great location. Best was the advice on local events and Petes glow worm tour. We thoroughly enjoyed our walk...
