Exceptional staff made all the difference in this hotel. Our family of 5 stayed here while on vacation over the Christmas holiday break - although a bit of a trek to our start point for the Tongariro crossing hike, it was so worth it. Darryn rose in the middle of the night to pack delicious breakfasts and snacks for us,...

We recently stayed here and it was a lovely place .It was in very easy walking distance to restaurants and the main street. The hotel had an award winning restaurant, pool and hot spa. The staff were friendly and obliging. The only problem I had was the maintenance man who decided to cut trees outside our room before 9:00 am...

This is a magnificent hotel that is recommended without reservation or qualification. The staff, the accommodation, the location, the restaurant - all absolutely first rate. Nicely different without being quirky and with outstanding attention to detail, in service as well as decor

Lovely room with A/C that actually works! Personal service by owners and wonderful staff. Great breakfast too. Can dine outside overlooking the beautiful pool. Great location -- short walking distance to Eat Street, which is the hub of town.

This small hotel is a gem and our stay there made our Rotorua stay most enjoyable. A spacious and comfortable room, king sized bed, great A/C, and personable owners who are present and helpful. Darren was a pleasure. We ate great dinners there twice and enjoyed the breakfasts also. This place stands out as special during our three week trip...

We stayed two night at the small but wonderful hotel. The rooms were simple but tastefully elegant down to the last detail. All staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful. Food was surprisingly delicious, esp. for a small hotel. Located quite close to shopping and conveniences of Rotorua. It was a welcome stay from all the 5 star, large hotel chains...
