This was the right place for us. Service was absolute perfect. The owner of the place made sure we were well looked after and was also a great host and made our stay a warm and welcomed one. He would come every morning to check if we were ok and gave us really great ideas on where to go in... More

This is an older style motel and for this reason the rooms are more spacious than newer motels. The manager was extremely welcoming and willing to assist us in any way. I would highly recommend this motel to families in particular (we had 4 grand parents and 2 grandchildren so had 2x 2-room units which worked extremely well). It is... More

I would recommend this Motel to everyone I know if they ever visit NZ. It is right next door to Skyline and a 10 minute drive from the city centre, 2 minute drive to a Large... More

Stayed for one night with 2 adults during a whirlwind tour of New Zealand. The room itself was extremely spacious and a very good value. It appears to have the option of extended stay, so the kitchen was packed with cooking necessities such as pots, pans, and diningware in addition to a microwave, minifridge, and kettle. Check-in hours were a... More

We were family of 4 with 2 adults and 2 kids (4yr & 3 months). We found this motel at a nice handy location, nice tidy room and bathroom with daily cleaning. Very welcoming and caring owners. The only thing i missed was room air conditioning since i visited in summers but the positives and prices are too low you... More

Such a small motel with only 8 units! And the friendliest I have ever stayed with. Our two bedroom unit was well equipped and super-clean. We were traveling with a toddler and did not mind that the furniture was a little older. The beds were comfortable and we had restful quiet nights. You can get discount coupons to attractions and...

The motel is on fairy springs road which is next to the skyline, rainbow springs park and mitai village. However it's far from the main town of Rotorua - 15 minutes car. It's good if you have a car but we took the bus for $3. The bus stop is 15 minute walk near the petrol station. The motel is... More

Enjoyed our stay here for two nights. The room was clean and comfy. The TV was a little hard to use and no DVD player was provided. The Internet ran out very quickly, there is no way we used 2gb in one evening.. when we didn't even use 500mb for the whole trip on 4G. The kitchen was good, fridge,... More

An easy to find, comfortable motel. Our room had a capacity to sleep six, there were 4 of us. Beds were comfortable, the rooms were clean and most things were readily available. Units are a little old and could do with a touch up, but nothing major wrong. We had to ask for flannels/facecloths, but they were readily provided, probably... More

Checked the rooms out first before committing to stay. I was impressed with the studio room I was shown. It had all the amenities. Was clean and tidy. Actually I thought it was very meticulous. Had free wifi that was excellent. Got to do some significant work on my laptop. Had a wonderful sleep. Was close and handy to doing... More
