It was a basic motel but great value, very clean, well maintained and the one bedroom unit was very spacious for a family of four. The hosts were friendly, caring and very helpful. The play area for the kids was a great distraction. The motel is perfectly placed between the mini golf and Rainbow Springs/ Gondolas. This was perfect for... More

The night I stayed over however was really cold and the room heather is linked to a timer that shuts it down in 1 hour. Having a small baby in the family I had... More

This motel was great value and the hosts were very welcoming and kind. A basic motel, but everything we needed. Super clean, nice playground, spa pool and right next door to the Gondola. We will definitely stay here again.

Had an enjoyable experience at this motel. Arriving at 11pm wasn't an issue for the host who stayed up to greet us and also gave us discount vouchers for neighbouring attractions (much appreciated). Clean and tidy motel and easy to find on a main road. Will be returning for our next rotorua experience :)

Just recently stayed here for 2 nights with some family. It's not in the heart of the city but it's only a 5 min drive away. The couple that look after the motel were so friendly and helpful. Gave us free wifi when we needed it. The rooms were very clean and tidy, they made our beds in the morning,... More

The rooms are clean and comfortable. The Owners where very friendly and helpful. Every issue was fixed asap. Our Childreen enjoyed the Family atmosphere and had a lot of fun on the trampoline. The position is perfect for trips due it is possible to walk to some of the attractions.

Highly recommend this quiet motel near some tourist attractions, full cooking facilities with butcher and fruit and veg store opposite. Away from sulphur smell. Owners were very kind, would do anything to help. Very clean, older style but more than adequate rooms, comfy bed, great nights sleep.

the room was basic but very clean and had a well appointed kitchen. The owner was very helpful and the wifi included worked well. We highly recommend the private thermal pool which was a great way to unwind after a long drive. We weren't travelling with children but noted a good playground and other child friendly attractions

Have been planning a trip to Roto for months. On arrival, the new owners were very accommodating and was surprised at the size of the two bedroom units. On the first night, I fell ill with a stomach bug and spent most of the weekend in bed. However, the owners were fantastic in that they offered a lot of help... More
