We travelled over an hour to the motel to find reception closed with a note to ring a mobile number. We did this and waited. 15 minutes later we were in our room. We had an option of a... More

We shared a room with another couple. The common area was clean with a small kitchen and the bathroom and location were good. Free Wi-Fi and very friendly staff. The downside - the lake area across the street wasn't adequate for swimming - but the view was nice. The property is in a neighborhood which made for good early morning... More

Back again with my sister from Australia, This time we took a 2 bedroom unit. Comfortable double beds and good pillows. Sparkling clean with a well equipped kitchen, and user friendly bathroom and dining area. Another great stay in a scenic and peaceful place by Lake Rotorua. Bound to return.

The location was beautiful, with great... 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.
