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

Stayed for three nights and enjoyed every minute of our experience. Staff were most friendly, welcoming and informative. It was lovely to receive a homemade muffin delivered to our room on arrival. Received many great recommendations of what to do and see. It was nice to return each evening to all the animals that were so well cared for. Accommodation... More

Nice place - we are a couple in our 60s and we really enjoyed it. It was clean, well appointed and good value. No silly frills, but comfortable at the same time. We enjoyed the location and it looked like a good family place too,

Fantastic CLEAN unit with a kitchen. Such a good location that we could do activities with the kids in the morning have a day rest/sleep and head out for more sight seeing before being back for the animal feeding. Very close to shops for supplies and tourist attractions. Karin even pointed out free attractions that the kids would enjoy. We... More

Travelled for a Sunday wedding and found the location was near the wedding venue. Excellent rooms and cleanliness. Very friendly dog visited at night. A bit hard to leave if turning right and travelling north

This place has a nice homemade playground that is just opposite the rooms where you can keep a watch on your children while enjoying your cup of tea. My kids (11 year old and 7 year old) enjoyed the playground very much. They also enjoyed feeding the animals. The motel is just a km from Skyline and a Kiwi wildlife... More

We had an awesome time here - our 2yr old and 6yr old loved the play area and the animals. They got to feed the animals every evening, and hang out in the play structure and make new friends. It got this nice farm setting and is very close to town, so we could get quick supplies like milk and... More

We arrived here and were given a grand welcome. Karen was most helpful in matters outside the scope of the motel - much information about Rotorua and all its tourist attractions. The breakfast was good, the rooms were more than adequate and the night's rest that we dearly needed was excellent.

This motel was awesome. Great kiwiana memorabilia and fit well with our family. We had 3 under 4 and it was a great place for our 4 year old to visit the animals and have fun outside. The owners are very friendly and when you put in requests they work on it straight away,
