We are a family of seven adults with a young baby. We stayed in the cottage and it was wonderful! Fully equipped and furnished to a high standard, superior beds, a stunning bathroom and to top it off the thermal heating was amazing for the crisp Rotorua temperatures. All this plus use of heated pool and mineral pools, free WIFI... More

We stay here every year for a mid winters break. It has the best pool we've used in Rotorua. The rooms are comfortable and good value. We got free on demand movies because we booked direct which was a bonus on the rainy days.

Ideal venue for families.Outdoor heated pool is fantastic fun for all. Indoor thermal tubs wonderful for the adults. Outdoor playground a bonus. Units are basic but cosy and well-heated - excellent beds and bedding in the three rooms in which our group stayed - spacious living area. Rooms serviced daily. Hosts friendly and helpful.

Nice roomy accommodation with a sparkling heated pool which enticed us in even though the weather was stormy. Great separate kitchen area for when you want to bring food back to the motel. Older style, but nice and clean. Friendly management with great service.
