We stayed for first 2 nights of a 3 week NZ trip. These owners can't do enough for their guests. Their suggestions for local sights were fantastic. The room was very large with comfortable bed. Great for families too as they actually have young children's area for play.

Mike and AnneMarie's local knowledge of the attractions to see and help in booking activities was the main drawcard to staying here. We had read reviews of how helpful they are and we found that very true. The facilities were not quite as fancy as other places we had stayed, but Mike and AnneMarie's efforts for us to enjoy our...

My partner and I had for a long time wanted to go and ride the trails in Rotorua. One of the biggest deciders on where we would stay would be the location to the trails and that the hotel needed to be MTB "friendly"...In that is needed to either have a secure lock up for the bikes (or allow them...

My family we all so impressed with the beautiful mezzanine rooms, all which contain spas. The rooms are huge and contain everything you need. The owner Mike is so helpful and will go above and beyond to make sure your stay is enjoyable and will suggest local places and attractions to visit. We haven't had that level of personal customer...

Stayed here with my young family and loved it - clean and spacious room, easy to find. The outdoor spa was a hit with my son as well as the playground (though I would suggest a bit of maintenance to be done with it) The service were friendly, I do find the washing machine and dryer to be very expensive...

We stayed for two nights having read reviews on Trip Adviser. Very welcoming and helpful owners and spacious accommodation with spa bath. Easy to find on "motel mile". Our unit was tucked away in a corner and quite dark inside. Also location is a bit further out from the town centre than the website implies. Good supermarket nearby.

We stayed here for two nights this week. The rooms were spacious and modern, and the small modern kitchenette was a surprise addition. The beds were very comfortable too!! The facilities were clean and tidy. The staff were all fantastic, friendly and knowledgable about the local sights and surrounds. Surprise bonuses- free unlimited DVD hire, which was great for our...

One of our favourite motels on our recent New Zealand trip; plenty of space, great spa pool and friendly people. Loved having the two levels, and our own spa pool. If you are looking for a place to stay in a Rotorua, look no further!
