We stayed as a couple and had a lovely romantic stay. It was great value for money which meant we had more to spend on activities like going quad biking and horse riding.

At $130 way over the top for a 1970 style motel. There are MANY motels around at under $100 in Rotovegas but I was taken in by the Winterisation AA deal petrol deal. 99cents a litre off on 50 litres so take that off the $130 and $80 would be about right.

You get what you pay for with hotels, sure it was cheap and a bit dated and the gentleman was very friendly. Why was the smell worse inside the room than outside? Found it difficult the sleep due to the oppressive sulphur smell. The smell was present but mild and fine across the town....until we got back to the Havana... More

Sure, it's a bit basic and dated but the rooms are always warm and clean and it's great to soak in the hot pools after biking or walking. In the centre of town so no need to use the car to go out for a feed. Large rooms with a kitchen, great for family stay.

Stayed with Jan & Merv twice on one holiday Feb/March 2014. Very convenient location, great outdoor pool and indoor thermal pools. Jan very friendly, welcoming and accommodating. Helped with local information. Very large comfortable room. All in all a good place to stay.
