We only had one night at this motel but were very impressed with the service and the standard of accommodation. We had a detached unit which had two bedrooms, a lounge, kitchen and bathroom. There was also a small garden to the rear of the unit with table and chairs. The bedrooms were a good size, one with king size...

My husband and I stayed here for two nights. Our check in to check out ran smoothly. We had a studio, no kitchen however we had a hot tub and a private outside area. We did not notice any traffic noise. Overall it was a very nice stay. The man who checked us in was lovely & the domestic staff...

We were assigned unit 1 that is closest to Sala Street, and this was a significant factor affecting our stay. There is heavy traffic moving along Sala Street at all hours of the day and night. When heavy trucks went past, you could feel the vibrations in the floor, The weather was very warm at the time, and because there...

For a good night sleep this motel was ok it has no A/C though if you like that comfort, bed was comfy spa was great close to all the sites not flash but nice. You are only a stones throw from the Maori village and the same to the centre of town over all this place is ok

The hotel is located right across from the cultural village and hot springs... if you are crafty you can sneak a dip into the hot springs just down the road or go to the hot baths in the village. The area will of course smell of sulfur due to the hot springs but that is to be expected. Be aware...

Great two night stay. Very handy to Rotorua's attractions of bubbling mud, geyser's and Maori Culture. Clean room with the added attraction of an outdoor (private) hot water bath. Very relaxing after being out checking the sites of Rotorua and Taupo only an hours drive away. Very impressed with motel management after we left some articles behind when leaving and...

Certainly not the fanciest hotel to stay in, but well suited to those hitting the trails nearby. The townhouse units have a locked garage and hose facilities for muddy bikes and gear which makes them perfect for mountain bikers. We have stayed here a few times and the service is solid with clean (though unexciting) rooms.

we needed a place to stay for the night. The greeting was slightly abrupt, more formal than welcoming. Clean and tidy unit, milk in the fridge and everything we required for the night. Comfy bed, quiet and a brisk walk into town for drinks and dinner. Would stay again

This motel has some good advantages - a nicely stocked kitchen so you don't have to constantly eat at restaurants is top of my list and this place has that. The internet is frustrating - had to walk over to the lobby (in another building) to access WiFi. We used the hot tub outside of our room - it is...

Good price. Booked a one bedroom apartment with spa. Rooms are pretty small, but are fine for an overnighter if you don't want to spend too much on accommodation. My parents and I paid $163 for the one night and most of the other decent options were $200 and up. Place was clean. Parking right outside the door. Internet was...
