The first thing we noticed was the overpowering stench in our room and no it wasn't Rotorua's thermal odour (that we don't mind). I had to go out and buy an air fresher, which we used regularly through out our weekend stay. Thankfully by the third day the smell wasn't as noticeable. Perhaps the smell came from the carpet which seriously needs replacing. The sofa bed was heavily stained, hard and lumpy and needs to be replaced now! Other beds were very comfortable. Shower was 'temperamental' and would suddenly stop/start and the temperature would vary when being used and there was hardly any pressure. If it hadn't been for these flaws, I would have rated it excellent. The owners might wonder why we didn't complain, well we just wanted to get on with our programme. Otherwise the room was clean and spacious. The location was within walking distance to town. The redeeming feature for us was it's fantastic mineral pool.
