What a little gem of a place! We had a lovely time here. The owners are very friendly and helpful, Fiona in particular was lovely and such a good hostess. We hired two units both of which were well equipped, clean and comfortable. Outside areas are great and the facilities second to none! Would definitely recommend this place. Dog friendly... More

The entrance to this nice place is easy to miss along busy highway 5 and even though the traffic zips by close to the facilities, it doesn't feel at all rushed or noisy. It is a very charming and homey place. The grounds contain a large and wonderful home-made playground, a little golf course, quirky/funny sculptures and a resident flock... More

If your into golf and are a champion this is the place to stay. Many a swing was performed with a great play ground, with tunnel experience and a 20m canopy tour to wind down after a long days golfing. The "carbbq" is a hot thrill and rooms clean and tidy. Everything you need for a successful golfing holiday. Loads... More

We arrived in Rotorua unprepared and after ruling out a few of the more budget accommodation options we were pleasantly surprised to discover this hidden gem located on the main road leading into town. Despite being located right off the main road as soon as you drive in there is a surprising transition into a very private facility which has... More

We stayed for two nights here in mid-December and all agreed we would love to come back! The facilities are fairly basic but there is everything you need in the motel kitchen, the shower pressure was good and the beds were comfy.... All important!! We had a two bedroom unit directly opposite the kids play area- and how awesome is... More

Most of the accommodation dwellings in Rotorua offer connected spa pools in units but the hideaway lodge differs in this respect. Some of the units are dated, while some have been refurbished nicely (i peaked at the other units while talking to housekeeping). There is plenty of parking offered and the spacious grounds are excellent, great kids area with real... More

What a wonderful place to stay. We had 3 adults and 2 children staying in a unit. The unit had everything we needed and was lovely and clean.The children spent most their time playing in this great playground while the adults could relax. We loved playing the paddock mini golf. The children fed the animals. We wished we could stay... More

Feels like a country retreat staying on a farm. Grand kids love the playground and petting animals as well as collecting eggs for breakfast. Basic, Clean and tidy rooms with adequate kitchenette beautiful fluffy white towels and linen. Friendly helpful owners great location away from the sulphur smells. Good internet and TV. Great value for money .

My wife & i where on our bi-annual motorcycle holiday & stayed at the lodge for a week due to it's tranquil, park-like setting & rural location. The unit we stayed was comfortable, tidy & well serviced with ample storage for our bike paraphernalia. There are secure parks out front of the units away from the main road, we where... More
