We stayed here for two nights. We had the most marvellous welcoming from Gretchen who also very kindly gave us fresh milk. The room was spotless and very modern. The bed was very comfortable and there was a small kitchen area with tea and coffee making facilities and a fridge.

You wouldn't want a mineral bath in your room - it stinks like Sulphur. Even without this the whole town smells like it!

is there any washer/dryer in the studios?
No, and the price they quoted us to send out laundry was outrageous.

how to get there from auckland if we dont have a car
sorry just saw your question - easy you can fly to Rotorua and there's a small shuttle takes you there - i'm sure from Auckland though you can probably pick up a bus or a coach.
