“Our own private pool!”
Reviewed February 2, 2012

Due to a change in plans (to see the Murawai Gannet colony) we had no reservation near Helensville and thought to drive back over to the east coast to try some hot pools. Then we saw the small, almost hidden sign for this motel and thought we would have a look.
The various rooms--studios and one bedroom, same reasonable price-- are all extremely clean, have kitchenettes, very comfy beds, good showers. But the amazing thing is that each unit has a totally private, hot geothermal pool, with water changed daily, just outside the door. Ours was completely enclosed on the deck, which also had a little table and chairs, but open to the sky. Just turn on the hot water from the earth and soak away! What a treat!

Room Tip: Some of the private pools are more enclosed than others, though all are for only one room.
