We stayed here with kids and everyone enjoyed the stay. Both outside and inside(private) onsen(bath) were very nice and clean. Very authentic japanese style onsen. The owner was always available (during their business hours, of course) and friendly. We stayed here for 2 nights and they cleaned the room and changed towels after the first night, which is always a... More

This is a dated motel so you might bypass it on the road, but the attention to detail and care of the owner / manager is outstanding and if it is your price point, then it is well worth a visit. Everything is kept spotlessly clean and the overall atmosphere that they create is really nice. The spa and onsen... More

We were looking for a Japanese onsen experience in NZ, and much to our delightful surprise we found one in Terume Resort. The outdoor spa was beautifully designed with water temperature around 42°C and the two indoor spas could be used privately. Two of the spas had a milky colour, whilst one was in light green. The indoor spas vary... More

If you are into the Japanese onsen (hot spring) here is the place you should go while you are in NZ. It was our second visit after nearly 8 years from the previous stay. The new owner had taken over the business and apparently they had put a lot of efforts to improve both the spa and the rooms. The... More

My colleague recommended us to this place for hot spring. Even the place is not that luxury, but it is a really clean and warm place. The room made us feel like at home~ compare to the cold weather from the room temperature. As well as that, the motel got both indoor and outdoor hot springs. We tried both of... More

The owners of two years Raymond and his wife Emily are excellent hosts. The rooms are old fashioned but they are very warm, cosy, clean and comfortable. Really can't complain for the price. The novelty of having on-site "indoor" and "outdoor" Japanese style hot springs is a really fantastic and unique experience. Raymond allowed our group to use the hot... More

Very friendly owners and adequate rooms. The rooms are not luxury. However, the Japanese pools are the best I soaked in while in the Rotorua area. It was easy to walk into town and access the restaurants and stores. I would stay here again.

I liked this resort's environment and design. You will see big red tree in front of gate and nice japanese style black door into your room. The room was big enough actually we were 2, but can join 4people as well.! Heater in room was good warm. Duvet and Blanket as well. Highly cleaned. Both Indoor onsen and outside onsen... More
