This review is long overdue, as we visited at the end of December. My wife, 1-year old daughter and I stayed for three nights but wish we could have stayed longer. From the moment we arrived to our final farewell, Ron and Mairi treated us like family and made our stay in Rotorua an unforgettable one.
We stayed in Room #3 (2 bedroom apartment) and had more than enough room to spread out. The 2nd bedroom was perfect for our daughter, as it allowed us to relax with a bottle of wine after she went to bed and we didn't need to worry about waking her up. The kitchen came fully equipped to cook, though we more often took Ron's recommendations for local restaurants (all were good!). The bed was really comfortable and we all got some of the best sleep of our entire trip.
The gardens around the lodge are truly stunning and, together with the mineral thermal and hot plunge pools, made for a really relaxing place to spend time in after a day of sight-seeing. The Malfroy Motor Lodge is a perfect place for those with young kids, as it is not only convenient to town but also offers a small garden/play area. Between that, the plunge pool and picking Mairi's flowers, my daughter was in heaven!
Thanks to Ron and Mairi for a wonderful stay. We truly enjoyed your lodge and your company. We certainly look forward to staying with you again the next time we find ourselves in Rotorua!
