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

This stay started off as a disaster as we had pre-booked in advance (about 4 months) for a two bedroom unit. Turn up on the day and they had just checked out that unit to another family, so we had no choice but to stay in the one bed unit with 5 of us. The beds were comfortable and I... More

A very peaceful location on the Lake Rotorua waterfront Ngongotaha side. A sandbar alive with birds and a stream nearby with an excellent walk ( also an easy great lakefront walk with seats and picnic possibilities). If you like walking, the shops are also easily reached. We found a few missing items for self-catering but the proprietors who had been... More

Lovely location but let down by being poorly equipped, especially the kitchen. One pot (no lid), one frypan (no lid), no sharp knives, can opener, breadboard, cleaning brushes or clothes. In fact no kitchen utensils of any kind - just cutlery. Bulbs missing from both bedside lights, no electric blankets and the heat pump struggled to make an impression on... More
