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

There are many other facilities both for kids and adults such as spa, fishing, trampoline, kayaks, laundry, garden and free parking. As promised we will come... More

It was such a pleasure staying at Jack and Di's Motel, a home away from home. Ian and his staff were very welcoming and went the extra mile for us on our mini family holiday. Lots of space for the kids to burn off energy! Clean and Tidy unit with lovely lake views, would love to come back in summer... More

Well Ian at Jack & Di's was such a joy to deal with. Right from the moment he met us he welcomed us into the property and gave us all the information we were looking for. On top of that he is just a damn lovely man. We will certainly be recommending people visit Ian and stay at this place.... More

We had a lovely stay, our kids loved the garden! Clean comfortable unit. Ian and his staff are so welcoming, friendly and full of local knowledge and handy tips. Close to all Rotorua attractions, but far enough away to enjoy superb lake view, bird song and fresh air after returning from a busy tourist day, the kids played in the... More

Ian was very friendly and helpful doing his very best at making his guests feel at home at the motel. I would love to... More

We ordered a two-bedroom unit with a big lounge with kitchen. The unit is very warm and clean, with free WIFI! The lakeview outside is very beautiful, and the free spa is absolutely fantastic. It's only 10 minutes to Rotorua skyline, Maori village, and Rainbows springs, very convenient. Thanks very much for the manager and staff's warm services. We whole... More

We had an amazing stay and Ian does his very best to make all of his guests comfortable. I was really impressed with how child friendly the motel is, kayaks, lakefront, trampoline, spa pool and awesome BBQ spot out the back. The location of the motel is perfect to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, my... More

Ian was great with... More
