We were there in July 2014 and it was just an awesome place to stay at. I have two girls and they really enjoyed staying there because of the park, the slides, the animals to feed late in the afternoon. The service was nice too! We spent 4 peaceful nights there. We'll definitely go back to that place!

Had a very nice stay here for 3 nights on 2 for 3 deal. Handy location. The site was great for a small child, with animals to feed and a playground to explore. The room was clean (and warm being winter) There were a couple of minor maintenance issues with the room, but when raised were dealt with, with no... More

We were very warmly welcomed on arrival, and given some chocolate muffins, these went down well with the kids. With the spacious grounds the children had plenty of space to run off their energy after the travel. Playing with the animals, and the play equipment & golf. The unit was lovely & clean & very warm and quiet. Would thoroughly... More

Comfortable, welcoming lodge in large and attractive grounds on the outskirt of Rotorua. 3rd time I have stayed here but 1st time with my dog - the Lodge is dog friendly! Better equipped than other motels in Rotorua and set in park like grounds with sheep and chickens in enclosures. Great place for a family. Phil

This is the first place that we stay upon arrival at New Zealand and I must say we feel welcomed with warm reception. The reception lady offer us milk and delicious chocolate muffins and apologised that the owners were away for vacation. My little boy was "tasked" to feed the chickens and farm animals and he was immensely pleased. Since... More

Very comfortable warm family unit, enough for 4 adults and 2 small children. Pity the weather was rainy and the children could not use the play area. A little road noise but bearable. Location for us was great as we were visiting the National Feildays.

I stayed at Rotorua Hideaway Lodge for 2 nights in May 2014 & was impressed to be told on arrival, "I've put the heater on in your bedroom", it was a cold & rainy weekend. My motel was spacious, clean, light & warm & it was good to see various domesticated animals in "the farm" area & a very good... More

Highly recommend this place for families especially if you have young ones. I'm not usually a fan of budget accommodation but I was pleasantly surprised here. Our room was basic, clean, warm on arrival (it was freezing in Rotorua when we arrived so it was really nice to walk into a pre warmed room) it had a well appointed kitchenette... More
