Me and My family loved staying at Jack & Di's last week for two days. Apart from the lovely scenic views and of course free kayaks and spa. It was Ian who made our stay wonderful. Spacious and clean rooms and had everything to make your stay comfortable. Would definitely visit again. !!!

I couldn't believe my luck to stay in a place like this, right by the lake which was full of black swans, beautiful and peaceful. Kayaks are freely available to use at your pleasure and I recommend sitting out at night with a tinnie, looking at the moon and listening to the crickets, gorgeous!

Jack & Di's is set on the lake which is a beautiful setting, there is also free kayaks for us. The rooms are spacious and have everything you need to make your stay comfortable. There is a big BBQ area which would be perfect in summer, there is a large heater if it gets cool in the evening. It is... More

Located in a quiet suburban street across the road from the lake. We stayed in a 2 bedroom unit which had plenty of space for our family of five, including extra beds in the lounge. Although the motel was fully booked out during the whole five nights we stayed, noise was at a minimum - of course dependent on how... More

We stayed here with a Grabone deal and it was extremely affordable for 4 people. The place had nice big living space and kitchen, separate bedroom, friendly hosts, nice view of the lake across the street, and only a short drive into the center of Rotorua. Convenient parking right outside the room as well. The shared back garden between the... More

Location wise, it is not near the city centre. Property is located off the main road, in a residential estate. From the street, anyone can access the property. Very basic. Felt that rooms are not cleaned properly. Very bad sound proofing. Late at night could hear cars pulling up on the street. Was woken up around 3am thought someone closed... More
