Nothing to complain about at all - family friendly, excellent service, clean, economical... third time we've stayed. Nice to see that they have added double-glazed windows to reduce road noise.. pleasant touch, didn't think they needed it, but good to see they are always keen to improve. Bring your kids here!!

Having driven the Fenton St. strip we drove back to my wife's first choice on our list, Hideaway Lodge. When I first drove down the drive I was not sure we had made the right choice, we asked to see the room and we were pleasantly surprised. It looks a little old - don't be put off, The room was...

the place was very nice and cute--if I may say so! It is a little away from the town (10min) drive and we were happy about it...the place has a pretty park for children, and a friendly dog. the room was spacious with a drawing room with kitchen space and bedroom. Laundry was free though there were no dryers. You... More

My second stay at this delightful place. My last stay was wonderful and I was made very welcome by the owners Fiona & Chris. It is so refreshing to find someone who doesn't just pay lip service. On my last stay I mentioned to Fiona & Chris that everything was perfect apart from a little road noise. It wasn't that... More

We spent 3 nights in a two bedroom unit and it suited us perfectly. This is budget accommodation so it's not flash or fancy but you do get value for money. It was clean, comfortable and warm and our kids literally spent hours in the playground. Free unlimited (and effective) wifi was a bonus and Fiona was more than happy... More

Great set up- BBQ, sandpit, playground, swing ball, pet friendly. The owners were extremely accommodating, allowing our son to help with feeding the chickens daily. The facilities were well looked after, offered simple yet relevant facilities. We will definitely be returning! Thank you!

Still no regrets coming here with the family - the boys (6 & 8) love it. So much to do, animals, playground etc. Close to a lot of attractions, 5 minutes from downtown. Although you can hear road traffic, it's far enough back that it's so relaxing and feels safe for the kids. The rooms are tidy and well-maintained. We... More

Thanks for the feedback regarding road noise. We've taken this on board and now all our bedrooms are double glazed with a special laminated glass to reduce the noise from the road. We've had great comments from guests since and the bedrooms are much much quieter! More

Just down the road from Rainbow springs and skyline/luge, this unique holiday accomodation a near by setting to all attractions in Rotorua. With comfortable rooms and a basic kitchen it was all we could ask for. A play area for the children add some lights to the play area and kids could spend longer outside and BBQ area if you... More

Stayed at this little gem for 2 nights and wish it could have been longer. I was made to feel so welcome by the owners Fiz & Chris. As a single traveler they made me so welcome that they invited me to eat with them, what a nice couple. Very convenient for all the attractions and will be back in... More
