We were really pleased with the size of the apartment , the furniture, space and the spa! in a quiet area of Rotorua, 5 minutes drive from Te Puia, it is very good value for money. The host is also very friendly and gave us good suggestions on where to go in the center

As soon as we met the hosts my wife said to me we are coming back. Best motel we have stayed at. Both Pete and Tristen were very welcoming and had a great knowledge of the local attractions. Even though there were 6 of us there was still plenty of room in our 2 bedroom unit. All of the rooms... More

Lovely to be looked after by genuine, friendly hosts and their excellent cleaning team. Units are immaculate and have separate kitchens, comfy chairs and lovely linen. Extras included the guest laundry with washing and drying machines and tubs with plugs (essential for bushwalkers with muddy boots), outside drying lines with pegs, a playground, secluded pool, spas, luggage storage, free Wi-Fi,...

Excellent would stay again though on the outskirts of town need to be aware as some May to prefer walking everywhere from motel base. Owners very friendly and proud of service and cleanliness. Soaked in the heated pool for an hour or so - very nice and would be suitable for family getaway

We were bowled over by such a warm and welcoming greeting from Mikayla; this made us instantly feel at home. The rooms were clean and had good facilities - just what we needed. Mikayla showed us round and explained everything we needed to know such as use of pool, doing laundry, etc. She was very knowledgeable about the local area... More

We stayed here for two nights. Mr & Mrs Proprietor were very helpful from the moment that we checked in till the moment that we checked out. And gave us discount vouchers for the Lady Greygeiser as we were leaving. Each room has its own private spa bath and extra towels were provided. The rooms were serviced to a high... More
