Stayed here for a couple of days...the hotel is basic and comfortable. The lady at check in was very friendly. We were prepared for the smell that is associated with Rotorua and surroundings but not prepared for the smell which was overwhelming in our room....More

Good sized room, clean and recently decorated. It’s is let down by the kitchenette area which is clean but not that modern. Pool area and thermal pool, we didn’t use either. Some on site parking. Front desk staff very helpful.

Thank Lucyleak
