Service was good and room was clean. The wifi was good as well. A particular highlight was of course the mineral hot pool with the characteristic sulphur smell. We went in this a lot. Would recommend to others planning to visit Rotorua.

The personal service by the hosts/owners was much appreciated. They were very helpful showing us the facilities available in both our room and the beautiful surroundings that are very peaceful & relaxing . The outdoor setting and the big armchairs in the room made a nice change from other places. Ron was extremely helpful & knowledgeable about attractions in Rotorua.... More

We enjoyed hospitality plus plus during our visit. Iain and Mandy, who were minding the place when we checked in, were the perfect hosts. Iain took pity on us because of our late arrival and drove us downtown to pick up some dinner and then took us on a brief tour around town. There is a huge amount of comfort... More

We truly enjoyed our stay and the lovely hosts/owners. Great massage shower, pool, and lovely decorated room with a lot of attention to detail. They also booked all tours for us and had great ideas what we could visit during our stay in the area.

My two sisters and I stayed here for 5 nights, in room 8. Lots of room and the beds were very comfortable. Ron and Mairi were extremely helpful in recommending things to do when the weather turned bad, as well as recommending DVDs to watch from their extensive collection.

Thank you Mairi and Ron for a fantastic stay. The website says "If you are looking for Rotorua motels, or spa accommodation look no further" and I would agree. The service was beyond expectations and the local knowledge greatly valued. I wish I could return to NZ just to visit this motel again.

We had such a great stay. Thanks to Ron and Mairi for being such great hosts. You have great local knowledge. My girls enjoyed the pool and a soak in the spa was a must after a long day. A massive thank you for express posting our forgotten iPad. Customer service at its finest.

3 women travellers stayed for 4 nights. The owners were very friendly and helpful with all our requirements. We had a two bedroom apartment which was very well equipped with kitchen, tea/coffee making facilities everything we could need for self catering. I would highly recommend this motel to anyone staying in Rotorua.
