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

This is clean, modest, inexpensive accommodation in a beautiful lakeside location. Our room was clean, spacious and well equipped but the location is extraordinary. It's always a lovely surprise to arrive in the dark and open the curtains in the morning to a really beautiful view. We only stayed one night but are tempted to return when Rotorua is our... More

Location is far from Rotorua town centre but lake frontage made up for it. Also, there is a small town centre where you can get everything such as Four Square and several fish and chips shops. So no need to go to Rotorua town centre. If you want peace and serenity, this is the place to stay. Rooms are very... More

Stayed in one of the more basic rooms and it was basic. But it had everything you need and the hotel is very well located only a five minute walk into town. Very hard to get this sort of location for the price so well worth it if you don't require uber-luxury.

took our 4year old grandson who just fell in love with Di ! the chalets were clean, spacious and well positioned for the lake. Would have liked a few more cooking utensils as we had chosen not to eat out and struggled a bit although we did use the bbq. Canoes, spa pools great although would have liked one pool... More
