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

Met Ian on check in who showed us around the place and also gave us a map and informed us of the activities and surrounding areas. The motel has trampoline for the kids, BBQ Area, Kayaks, Spa baths and free... More

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

First time visit to this side of Rotorua,(Ngongotaha) and it was beautiful. The resort location is on seaside and the view was beautiful. My family enjoyed it. Beautiful surroundings with heaps of room in the yard for kids to play, and a BBQ free to use and Kayaks for water entertaining. The management and service was excellent and most welcoming.... More

You get heaps more than what you pay for at Jack & Di's. We got given a 2 bedroom motel to accommodate 4 adults. Rooms are spacious and clean. Comfy beds. Great cooking facilities if you want to cook. Lots of freebies including wifi, TV, 24 hours spa, kayak, trampoline, swing, BBQ facilities, car parking in front of your room.... More
