Large suite worked well for our family. Liked being able to have breakfast in the suite. Mini golf was a fun surprise. Good location at edge of town, quiet but easy access to area. Staff were informative and helpful.

This hotel surprised by its amenities and facilities. I could not think of a single thing that they don't provide except perhaps a faster broadband. Our bedroom was big as was the bathroom. They seem to have thought of everything including a small kitchenette, table and chairs, jacuzzi bath, etc etc. Even underfloor heating in the bathroom. Although we did...

Absolutely wonderful visit, immaculate hotel, couldn't fault it at all. Terrific rooms, great facilities and an extremely good location. Stayed in fully self contained apartment for three nights while we explored Rotorua and it's surrounds.

What a lovely, quiet and well appointed Resort. So much for people to be occupied by (pool, tennis court). We were there unexpectedly over the Christmas period and didn't expect much of any where any good available on short notice, but this place was wonderful, look forward to returning in the future.

We stopped for 1 night on our way to Taupo. What a lovely room! The colours used made the room feel luxurious. And it was! Very clean and well presented. We had a good nights sleep and heard no "neighbour" or road noise. And Air Con was real bonus!. We Will back!!

Stayed here for one night as a rest stop whilst driving from Auckland to Wellington. Hotel grounds were well maintained and very comfortable. Room was simple but clean and spacious. Ours included a large jacuzzi which was a nice touch. Beds were very comfortable. Mini golf, bikes, and movie rentals are all free for hotel guests. Staff were very nice...

We stayed in room 5 on the ground level. It was a two-bedroom suite with kitchenette. The room was spacious and comfortable, and the kitchenette was excellent and well equipped. The pool was nice, although the weather was a little too nippy for wimps like us! We got some use out of the mini-golf course. The owners were very nice...

We were supposed to head back to Wellington but a last minute decision was made to stay on so we found this place for a night. Amazing! Absolutely worth the price we paid and the 5 star rating it has. Bonus factor is you didn't have to pay for the extras that were on offer (mini golf etc) like other...

This place has everything. Clean. Great beds, guest laundry, mini golf, free bikes, heated outdoor pool. It's the little touches that really made the difference such as the BBQ packs, free DVDs and magazines. The staff are super helpful and the room was well stocked. Really recommend this place.

I made the booking online, and confirmed by phone, very easily done and very friendly service. I booked for two nights just before New Year. Check-in was very easy. It’s a large complex, but because of the layout it doesn’t seem large – there are gardens and playgrounds/mini golf that seem to create privacy, certainly for our block anyway. We...
