It is some months since we stayed at Cosy Cottage but never the less, worth commenting on the service, facility and location. The camp was exactly as described on the website. The staff friendly and helpful. Having access to the thermal pools was brilliant. The facilities are more than adequate and the lake is only a couple of minutes walk... More

Stayed in campervan sufficient room on site. Kitchen was sufficient. Kitchen had not much room for sitting and eating, couldn't really sit down and socialise with more than 10 people or one family in the kitchen at one time. STOVES were NOT gas. I like gas. Toilets were clean. Best thing was there were three thermal pools which were FREE.... More

We stayed in the park with our campervan. From the minute we enquired about stopping to leaving the staff couldnt do enough to help us. They pointed out all the places we could visit including the free things and offered to book some tours for us. The site itself was lovely. Large kitchens, bbq area and natural steam ovens. Showers... More

We stayed in a cabin that was very neat and clean. We enjoyed all of the facilities that the park had to offer such as the hot pools and cooking a beautiful meal with the steam cookers. The owners were very helpful and offered us ideas of local tourist attractions. One negative about Rotorua in general for us was the... More

The holiday park provides nice hot pools and the staff is friendly and very helpful. Although the buildings are a bit older, they are clean and all the gear for washing or in the kitchen are working properly. Since I visited the last time, they also started renovating. The new showers fit in perfectly. The location is very nice, close... More

I was a day visitor here to see my daughter and friends who were weekend guests. Certainly not beach front .. a few minutes walk to the lake side which provided hot water pools if you dig in the sand -- too hot really.!! The main pool was ok -- just tepid...and allowed a romp with the kids nicely. My... More

Thank you for your review. Our advertising states “ Closest holiday park to Rotorua city with lake shore access”. We do not claim to be on the lake shore. We are a short 2 minute stroll through some of the worlds most unique natural geothermal features to the Rotorua Lake shore. Here there is hot water in the sand for... More

Second cheapest park (38 NZD for a powered site) with a hot pool in Rotorua (the 1st one had a broken pump). A good quality place with a bunch of pukekos running around searching for food. The lake is a bit dirty, but the swimming pool and especially the hot pools (2 for adults, one for parents with babies) are... More

We were meant to stay 2 nights but left early. The website shows this as being on the lake front which is not, there isn't even a view of the lake. There is one main pool which is supposed to be heated but was freezing and the other pools were too hot for little ones to go in. The little... More

We do not claim to be on the lakefront, however we do have lake shore and hot water beach access only a 2 minute walk through some of the world’s most unique naturally occuring geothermal features, yet we are only a short distance from the city centre. Nature is uncontrollable and at times can throw some less desirable features. The... More

Can't complain at all. The hot pools were lovely after a days walking. It was sold to us as lake front but clearly isn't but that was an I-site mistake. Friendly staff who were helpful in finding somewhere good for dinner.

At the time of our trip we were a family of 3, with a child of 4. We booked the hotel from our home city, and discovered as we arrived at the site that we were upgraded to a bigger room, all the better! The cabin / site is a trifle far from the naked bus stop (40 mns by... More

It is always difficult for anyone arriving in an unfamiliar new destination, we provide helpful advise on request. Arriving can be more challenging when you are on foot, accompanied by a 4 year old child with all your baggage to transfer as well. What is normally a 20 minute walk for a backpacker with a tent, unhappily became a 40... More
