A great motel handy to everything. A five minute walk to "eat street", lakefront and shopping centre is great. Owners are very polite and helpful, room is very clean and serviced well. We stayed for three days and wish we could have stayed longer. We will be back next time in town

Stayed here for two nights with my mum and nephew. The owners are very welcoming and friendly. The room, while old school Rotorua motel style, is SPOTLESS! Bed linen looks brand new. Cannot fault the cleaning at all! The location is excellent, right in town near the lake front. Lots of parking right outside, and the outdoor pool is heated,... More

The location is well positioned, closed to "Eat Street", the Rotorua waterfront and other amenities. Unfortunately, the Wi-Fi connection didn't always work very well at the time, over the 5 nights which we stayed

First up, the swimming pool is the main attraction here; a good size and a good depth for everyone from Miss 5yo to tired parents. The temperature was also just right and the whole enclosure is well maintained, so it's a great place to while away an hour or so in the morning or the evening or, well, pretty much... More

Greg & Gaylene were very welcoming and friendly. They operate an older motel but it's in a great location. Warm, spacious, clean and quiet. I had a problem with the shower head and Greg replaced it quick smart. Value for money.

Not the newest accommodation but very well located and spotlessly clean. Friendly informative owners...able to help you narrow down your options of the many tourist attractions available. Also able to provide discounts to some of the many tourist attractions. Very well priced and a great base for exploring Rotorua. Would definitely stay here again.

Well located near the CBD & near the lake it suited us for a night's stay. It has a natural outdoor hot pool & indoor smaller hotter pool. We were lucky that we were in Rotorua on a Thursday night when the local market was on.
