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.

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

We stayed over Easter with a small child. There was lots to do on the property, golf, swingball, adventure playground with flying fox and numerous animals to interest all ages. Having an Easter egg hunt for the children was a thoughtful and generous touch on the part of the owners. Our unit was clean with a kitchen and a separate... More
