Great location just a short walk to the shops and restaurants , some kitch bathing tubs, good beds and a nice open layout, so a spacious kitchen area and a mum and dad feel to the place. So good sheets, and a comfortable stay.

Very helpful managers who are knowledgeable and mindful of family needs. Accommodation is a little tired but great as a base for such a fabulous spot - so much to see and do around Rotorua. Outdoor pool was great for a family dip - also has two private mineral spa facilities. The recommendations made by the management were all fabulous... More
