“Trip Advisors got it right”
Reviewed May 5, 2013 via mobile

Booked it based on the recent trip advisor comments and they were right, very clean and comfortable, especially the beds, great mineral spa filled and hot waiting for us upon arrival and a very nice office lady, would definitely come back.

This was the perfect way to spend the last night of an NZ holiday. Close to Auckland, yet in the countryside, we were able to totally relax in this landscaped, clean, updated and comfortable cabin. We could have spent a few days here. We were not successful in connecting to the internet, but it was not a priority for us. The owner was very helpful and recommended a few activities in the area. The very private, spotless mineral pool was 100% in our control, crystal clear and nearly odor-free. A dream-come-true! It is our plan to return here whenever we are in NZ.

Room Tip: Individual cabins of various sizes down a single drive were a bit cramped for parking. We were fine...

We were "drive- ins" no booking and the lady was so helpful, after allocating our room ,never saw her again, just left to ourselves in total privacy.BLISS.if we could have then would have stayed longer.clean, new rooms with a spotless outdoor spa and area. Kitchen was well appointed but we just had a great meal of fish and chips (from the chippy 5 minutes away). Good range of village shops for necessary supplies.would return in a heartbeat
Yes a remote control for the t v would be great

Our stay was comfortable but could have been better if we had a remote control for our tv, fresh milk, and better internet facilities. We were told that because the remote was constantly being taken, they did not replace it. There were notes everywhere of do this and dont do that, so perhaps the management are in need of a gift of trust and understanding that there are good trustworthy people who also stay in their accommodation.
The bed was comfortable, the room was quiet, and the food at the nearby Porcini cafe in Helensville was amazing.

On our trip of NZ, Geothermal was a pleasant and fantastic surprise.

On the trip we also visited the Sudima Hotel in Rotorua, whose complimentary "private spas" were poorly cleaned and horribly run down (and that's saying nothing of the standard of their rooms...).

Could a Motel do any better than this large hotel? You bet! Geothermal has private spa pools for each unit, and they are fresh, clean, comfortable and you can adjust the temperature yourself. In our unit the pool was very well shielded, so we could easily have bathed naked had we wanted to. The units as such was clean, large, and with a high standard. The service is also perfect to my standards - helpful but not intrusive.

We couldn't have had a better finale on our NZ road trip!

Lovely to have your own mineral pool which was very clean. The unit was very clean and comfortable. The Manageress was very helpful but left you alone to do your own thing. We went up to "Black Petes" Restaurant for dinner. The meal was very good and the bar staff very obliging. The bed was so comfortable. The unit was serviced daily with clean linen.

You get your own private pool, that you can refill or top up to suit - as cool or as steaming hot as you like. If you are with a your family get room 8 as it has more deck space to get together. We have stayed four times now - always quiet, spotless, well equipped and great room service breakfast. If you just want to blob, read a pile of old magazines, soak in the spa, get back to basics for meals then this is the place for you. Supermarket, dairy, off license, restaurant within 50 metres of the gate and you can send the kids over to ride the big slides at the thermal pool across the road. Bliss. Book - as they are often "no vacancy"
