This trip was very good. My family and I had a very good time. We enjoyed the enviroment and the sights in the area. One thing alarmed me though. On our 4th day of sight seeing, it was just my family and I. We heard a loud screech. I immediatly ran for the kids and my wife. As we were... More

Having had a big trip into Rotorua and then a pretty packed and busy day, it was an absolute delight to be dropped off by a lovely local man at Kiwi Paka and be greeted by a very heartwarming Welcome in the form of lovely Bev! Lugging in my 'overnight haul' (travel luggage) I was grateful for the lovely, warm... More

My partner and I stayed in the Kiwi Paka for 2 nights recently. We stayed in a double standard room. Room was small, just a bed, table and chair with mirror. Had everything we needed. Our room was on the ground floor. A room above us. Only major complaint is the room above us, every move/step we could hear in... More

Stayed here in April 2014 and Bev was a delight! The rooms are clean and the kitchen is stocked but there were a lot of student groups coming through which made for a lot of notice and not an easy night's rest.

We stayed at Kiwi Paka for two nights. Overall the facilities were good: friendly staff, good food, convenient bar at good prices. We loved the hot pool, great after a day full of hiking and walks. We stayed in a private double and the only gripe was the fact that the room was so poorly ventilated -just one Window and... More

This is our 4th time staying at KiwiPaka. We stayed with 2 adults and 3 of our children and had a dormitory room. All facilities are in excellent condition, well maintained and clean. The dinner was excellent at $12 for crumbed fresh fish (not pre-frozen) with a good salad and chips and $7.50 for five small hot dogs and chips... More

We had no choice but to stay here when EVERYTHING else in Rotorua was fully booked! We camped... and were the only ones camping! I feel bad leaving a mean review based on our experience because the owners aren't really to blame but it is still my own true opinion of our stay. we camped like I said and were... More

Stayed in the Lodge with Yr 13 students and i was very impressed with the rooms, bathrooms and service from staff! Small criticism would be that the cooking hobs need upgrading as it was difficult cooking for large numbers. That said, we had a great stay!

We would never usually stay in a backpacker hostel, but we were going with a swim squad and needed to be right next door to the aquatic centre, but close to the town amenities. This fitted the bill. There are a few chalets with en suites, but no other services (no TV, no kettle with tea/coffee etc), but there is... More
