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

Highly recommend the one bedroom units for small family. The new owners ( who took over the business last week ) went over and beyond for us and our children. Great playground, older style but clean self contained rooms. The owners arranged us discounts gondola rides! We couldn't have asked for anything more!

Immaculate studios, free parking, free wi-fi, an unbeatable location and the nicest hosts you could ask for! We were welcomed after arriving a bit early by one of the super friendly owners and given our wi-fi and pint of fresh milk and shown to our extremely clean and comfortable cabin :) we parked our car right outside our door as...

Smelly, cold place. Heater fell off the wall and a glass was fully smeared in lipstick from a previous guest. The hot pool is very small and not warm enough to save on electricity. We had to call and wait a long time before they came to check us in and it was mid afternoon. Not happy. Would not return

Travelling with 2 adults plus a 3 & 5 yr old, we stayed in a 1 Bedroom Family Apartment. The Motel adjoins the car park for the cable car/ luge and is 200 m from the rainbow springs kiwi park. The motel was older style but tidy and the room large and bedding comfy. The play area was tired but... More

We arrived at the motel to find the driveway being resealed so we were dealing with sticky pebbles for the duration. The manager was extremely helpful, and the motel was very comfortable. We walked next door and headed up the gondola for dinner and then headed back the next day for a luge ride so it was great those facilities... More

It was certainly great to have you ladies to stay, and I'm so pleased you were happy with your experience. You & the other guests were such stars on the day the driveway got resealed, it now looks great and we've had minimal problems with stones that were sticky for a few days. Hope to see you back here again... More
