In addition to the convenient location, quiet and well-furnished room, graceful mineral spa facilities etc.; the motel service is pragmatic and commendable. To our requests, the hotel-keeper has helped book Mitai shows, and mindfully offered us discount coupons to save some bucks. It is most appreciated that we left a jacket in the room, the hotel-keeper notified us by email,...

Great motel which was very clean and lovely and warm. Manager paid great attention to us and showed us the facilities. Loved that we had a private hot pool which we could go into. We only stayed one night but would happily stay longer if we could.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Red Rock Thermal Hotel. Sue is a wonderful host who took care of all our needs and even going above and beyond to provide toys for our son Aiden. The mineral pool was refreshing and right onsite and it even had a kids playground with a trampoline and swing which Aiden enjoyed as well....

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Red Rock Thermal Motel is a small motel with thermal heating, a private thermal mineral spa pool for rejuvenating after a busy day sightseeing and a outdoor heated swimming pool. We have gardens to relax in with a trampoline for the kids. All units have tea & coffee facilities, kitchenettes and bathrooms. The Motel is ideally situated to tour the many geothermal parks in the area. Many of the Maori Culture shows offer a free pick up service from here for a great night out, or if you prefer you can simply walk out of our back gate, catch yourself a trout from the stream & cook it on the BBQ. ... more   less
