We stayed here for three nights at the end of January 2016. Our room was very clean, spacious and well laid out and clean. The sitting area outside was relaxing. We didn't use the pools, but they looked clean and well maintained. The owners were cheerful and helpful. We received and heeded advice regarding the Maori cultural shows, thermal reserves... More

We stayed at the Red Rock for 3 nights just after Christmas. The rooms were very spacious and smartly decorated for the price! The beds were very comfy and the bathroom and kitchen facilities were in great shape. The geo thermal pool is lovely and despite being a busy time of year we found ourselves having it to ourselves! Free... More

Friendly, clean and easy. After a long day of travel it was great to pull up our car, quickly unpack and take our boy for a swim in the pool. Free wifi; heaps of tourist info available at reception; kitchenette. Would stay again.

A large group of us hired most of the rooms in October for an annual get together. We were all so impressed with the standard of the rooms, everything was so very clean and we had everything we needed in the kitchenettes. We loved the thermal pool and the little spa and the gardens out back too. Our hosts could... More

Easy to locate , close to the lake - just walking distance. Private geothermally heated spa pool - so you don't have to go to the "Polynesian spa"! Friendly management allowed us to park the car even after checkout. Free wifi with good speed. Trampoline is an added bonus!

I had a night at the motel as a Pre--Birthday treat, had a lovely comfy unit. Was in unit 3, which I haven't stayed in before. Sadly, due to noisey neighbours in the unit next door to us, we were unable to have a relaxing night. Was great to see the rail in the pool, this made entering the pool... More

Friendly and clean. Well priced with FREE WiFi. Situated within walking distance to shops & a short drive to Skyline gondola. A great place for a stop over or longer stay. Loved the hot spring spa. I would most definitely stay here again.

The woman at the reception was super nice and gave us a lot of useful informations about what to do in Rotorua. She helped us to find a diversified program and prevented us from doing things which would have been pretty much the same twice. When we were out of soap she even gave us one from her private stock... More
