We booked a two bedroom unit and just loved the kitchen and the space. We just wanted to relax and we could in this room. We used the upstairs bedroom and had the most comfy bed ever I have had staying away, thanks for making it awesome Ocean. My only critisim is the tv could of been bigger.

Generally poor and not reflective of the website description. The Internet access was good but that's where it stopped. The wardrobe had a strong aroma of sulphur which would have permeated any clothes put in there. Additionally no hangers and of the four provided 2 were for women's attire and 1 was hugely bent out of shape. The cold tap... More

The room itself was okay--shabby but clean. The kitchen was well appointed. The price wasn't bad. The room was hot and there was only a fan--no AC. But, the reason for the low review is because of the owner. I asked for an additional coffee packet and he refused to give me one. My daughter asked to buy one and... More

Bed was a nightmare. For the same price we... More

We enjoyed our two night stay at the hotel. The host was very welcoming & helpful towards us. We had a lovely spa pool that we really enjoyed. Nice & quiet too. Our only downside was that the cleaner had come into our room after seconds of knocking on the door. We were not impressed. Other than that great hotel.

We stayed one night in this Motel on our fleeting visit to Rotorua. It was well priced, clean and comfortable. The location was excellent for visiting the tourist attractions the next day. From our room we could see steam rising from the geysers across the road. (Not saying it was a beautiful view but it was interesting). The welcome was... More
