Really cool place to stay! The staff is really nice and relaxed. The kitchen is big and well equipped. Clean. Well located. Just the WiFi was not good. Generally, very good for a nice stay at Rotorua!

The staff provided detail and useful tips in the area. Really well informed and clear on the facility. No power plug by the bed. WiFi not working in the room. Noisy double bed. Kitchen was spacious and common area was big.
