An all round lovely place to stay right by the lake and not far from the city. Our two bedroom unit was exceptionally clean, the beds super comfortable and the heat pump certainly did the job of keeping it warm. We made much use of the outdoor and indoor spa pools and borrowed a few DVD's from their extensive library. Would thoroughly recommend for groups and families. Great value for money. Thank you Leon for accommodating us in such a welcoming way.. my teenagers both commented on what an exceptionally nice person you are!

We organised a family get together, before COVID. Unfortunately things went a little pear shaped?! Leon could not have been more accommodating. as we had to cancel rooms for overseas visitors etc. We still got to use his fantastic conference facilities, with everything you could possibly need on hand. Next morning we all awoke to the peace, tranquility and beautiful setting of the motel on the lake edge. I have had so many comments from family, that they thoroughly enjoyed their weekend and the venue. So... thank you Leon for making it all possible!!

This is our 2nd time back, I think under new management and still lovely. It is right on the lake and so peaceful, much nicer than staying in town. The motel is so clean I could almost see my reflection in the floor and the view of the lake is amazing.... took some beautiful photos at sunset last night and the kids loved the pool, spa and jumping off the small jetty in to the lake!

A very peaceful spot. The cabin was very well equipped. Tea and coffee provided. Breakfast was delivered the night before and there was everthing you could want. The staff were very helpful and pleasant. There was a laundry room there which was very handy. The bed was comfortable. Would recommend. It is a little way out of Rotorua but worth it.
