We booked a cabin with an ensuite, it was a lovely little cabin in a quiet park filled with big beautiful trees. It also had its own thermal pools that you could use at your leisure. Great little spot.

The title says it all! First impressions were the start of the terrible 24 hours - the older lady at the reception was terrible to deal with, she was rude, very abrupt and needs a crash course in customer service, especially in that industry. I couldn't remember if my booking was made in my maiden or married name, gave her... More

We stayed in one of their kitchenette cabins for one night and it was fab. Rooms are clean and spacious and a great price! Shower and kitchen facilities are also great with really good showers and a lovely big kitchen. The free thermal pools were a huge bonus, absolutely gorgeous and enough room for lots of people - such a... More

We stayed in a kitchen-studio for 2 days, free parking, free natural thermal pools till 10 pm, bar service during morning time to have a good breakfast, excellent reception, clean utilities, excellent position to visit Whakarewareka Village or to go towards Waiotapu. I recomend it for a cheap and comfortable holiday!

Was a very awesome place to stay. We were in Rotorua for the National Touch Tournament and this was in a convenient location, close to the park. Cabins were comfy, nice kitchen area clean and tidy, toilets clean. My Children thoroughly enjoyed the pools. My only let down would've been the chilled lockers. They just weren't big enough for a...

Good location for cyclists and some newer facilities. We were in an older unit which had an ongoing musty smell that was overpowering. For both days the showers were cold which was unfortunate and they were trying to rectify. While sheets and facilities were very clean it was very dated and need some renovations, good potential.

The site is nice and family friendly but the facilities leave a lot to be desired. The bathrooms and showers were dirty but the pools were nice after a long day. If you are going to stay definitely being your own cook ware because there is almost nothing. The kitchen facilities are pretty sweet though! For the price this place... More

Stayed in a tent, great facilities and setting, great location (close to MTB tracks and town) and affordable. The free hot pools are fantastic too! Have also stayed in the cabins many times in the past, also had good experiences. Highly recommended
