We shared a room with another couple. The common area was clean with a small kitchen and the bathroom and location were good. Free Wi-Fi and very friendly staff. The downside - the lake area across the street wasn't adequate for swimming - but the view was nice. The property is in a neighborhood which made for good early morning... More

Back again with my sister from Australia, This time we took a 2 bedroom unit. Comfortable double beds and good pillows. Sparkling clean with a well equipped kitchen, and user friendly bathroom and dining area. Another great stay in a scenic and peaceful place by Lake Rotorua. Bound to return.

The whole family had a great time during our 2 nights stay. We had a small hiccup with the fridge but very please with the quick response and got a replacement immediately. Thanks to Ian for his very friendly and accomodating attitude.

As soon as we arrived we were greeted by Ian who showed us around and gave us great advice on places to go. He showed us the BBQ, Kayaks, spa, wash machines, trampoline and answered all of our questions. And on New Years Eve he put on his on fireworks for all the guests! The location was beautiful, with great... More

Pet friendly meant we were abke to bring our two small dogs along on holiday. Kayak on the lake is beautiful. We used a voucher to pay for the accomodation from a daily deal site but the rates are...

The water front location out if town is serene. I enjoyed being away from the bustle and especially the smell of the sulphur fumes. The manager was friendly and helpful. The only negative comment I can make is that the room smelled of old cigarette smoke which was a bit unpleasant every time we walked in the door.

We got a great deal on this motel. Yes, it's not in the heart of Rororua, but that's exactly where the charm lies...it's close enough but away from the crowds. It is right by the Waiteti lake and even offers free kayaking-which, given the location is irresistible, wifi, spa, trampoline, you can BBQ in the backyard and eat on a... More
