This place is pretty awful. The manager is friendly enough but the rooms are dire and you hardly have any Internet allowance. The bathroom was horrid and the whole room hadn't been properly clean. Wouldn't stay here again and don't recommend it to anyone.

The motel is a short drive from the town centre. The owner is very helpful and advises on local sights. Parking on site and free wifi. The apartment (2 bedroomed) is rather tired and the sitting area and one bedroom are combined. OK for parents and children. Kitchen equipment needs upgrading. Comfortable beds and outside sitting area. Godd value for... More

It's in pretty good location, very drive able distance from most of the tourist attractions in Rotorua. My favourite thing was how cute and functional the rooms are! The gentleman who owns it is also very knowledgeable on the area and was very helpful with attractions and discounts.

Stayed here for a couple of nights this week with a friend. We had two units, a King and Queen, just across the way from each other. Both were clean and tidy, although possibly a bit dated now, however we slept well so no problems with the beds. The manager was very friendly and helpful with suggestions for sightseeing in...

On arrival, we were greeted by what we thought was a friendly, approachable man. He did not hesitate in telling us about his extravagant life or telling us what activities we had to do so we could name drop him & strengthen his relationship with other businesses because he is relatively new here. We asked to see the room before... More

Being a cheap place to stay in Rotorua (because of an UB40 concert skyrocketing the prices of city hotels) we chose this one to sleep at. For one night, it was OK (free parking), but the motel definitely needs a refurbishment. A bit smelly reception, faded walls, furniture and not-always-working wifi aren't the things we would expect.

Group of 5 staying for one night. Unit had one bigger room with living, kitchen and 3 beds and a smaller room with double bed. The larger room was very crowded and the beds were very small. In my opinion the room can hold 4 people max. The motel is suppose to have sky (cable) channels and they indeed do,... More

We liked to stay with Mr. Yong and his staff, and we liked to talk about the things of the world. He had many good ideas about things to do for free or cheap. He even had reduction vouchers for the thermal wonderland of Wai O Tapu. We liked the Samoan village appearance of the whole place. The only drawback... More

We had a small unit just down the driveway, so had to park at street level outside the office. We were out for most of the time during the day so the smallness of the unit didn't bother us - we had all we needed. On arrival we were assisted with our luggage to our unit which was much appreciated.... More
