The accom was clean and neat and still trying to be positive but the operator left the bad taste. Needs a business mentor. There are more accom options in Rotorua so try them first. Don’t really want to say moreMore

For a group of 'Professionals' your behaviour whilst staying with us was nothing short of arrogant and bullish. You were rude and unreasonable. To think that as an accommodation business we could allow 5 rooms a 3hr late check-out of 1pm when we were fully...More
