“Great Anniversary Stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2013

I stayed here earlier this year for my anniversary with my partner. We decided to stay here because of many referals from my co workers at Conroy Removals. We stayed in a cabin with onsuite. It was very sweet and comfortable - flat screen tv, fridge and a cute table and chairs. The bathroom was very small though but being young and not too fussy we didnt mind too much. Reception were friendly enough - not overly fantastic but they do have lots of brochures to take for activities and attractions around Rotorua. Loved the log cabin look and will definitely reccommend it to friends and family who dont want to break the bank on accommodation in Rotorua.

Room Tip: Get a log cabin WITH the onsuite. Wouldnt want to go without it..

wow, what more could you ask for, a choice of cabins, tent sites, caravan sites, Thermal hot pools, walking distance to Thermal wonder land and only 5 min drive to city centre.
Its a must to do for family, friends, and independant traveller.

Room Tip: Log cabins are the best.

We stayed one night here on a campervan holiday and so used a powered site. There was an undercover walkway that ran the length of the parking spots for campervans, which is a good idea for bad weather days.
The one thing I was definitely not impressed with were the bathroom facilities, which were easily the worst of our trip. They were in much need of a clean and updating. There was rubbish left in all of toilets and especially in one of the showers. The hair dryer stopped working after 1 minute of use. There were big cracks in the ceiling. Didn't feel at all comfortable in these bathrooms.
On the other hand, my partner said that the male toilets were much cleaner.
They also had a nice kitchen/dining area, although we didn't use these.
Good for location but the state of the facilities would have been reason for me to stay somewhere different if I had to stay another night.

We stayed over the Easter Weekend for one night's accommodation in a self-contained cabin. We had stayed here many years ago and it was much the same since our last visit but with tv's upgraded etc. The facilities were clean and tidy. For the money paid, it was very good value. The cabins were surprisingly well soundproofed so we got a good nights sleep

We stayed two nights here in a kitchen cabin. The cabins are old, musty and are under some high trees which make them very cold. We managed two nights sleeping on the well used foam mattresses and could not cope with a third. Checked out and went home. Website is misleading... we thought we had booked one of the log cabins which looked lovely! Thermal pools could do with an upgrade.

Could do with some investment in updating the accommodation. We were located in a cabin that was sheltered from the sun all day and had to ask to be relocated to another cabin.
Very dusty under our bed and sheets didn't smell fresh.
Currently in a Top 10 and it's like chalk and cheese.

The hot thermal spa keeps us coming back for more - this trip we made a detour for this old favourite! Not much has changed since the last visit 2 years ago - it is still excellent value for money. And close to the Redwoods Forest for us mountain bikers.

Recommended.

Surrounded by Protected Native trees Rotorua Thermal Holiday park is the ideal place to stay. HOT POOLS CLOSED TILL FURTHER NOTICE: ....

We have up to now been one of the few businesses allowed to operate within such a close proximity of Whakarewarewa - Rotorua's leading geothermal attraction. We regret that the process of re-design, approval and implementation of the geothermal bore is taking such a long time, but will ultimately be to the benefit of the guests of Rotorua Holiday Park and the local environment if we see this process through to successful completion. ... more   less
