I was fooled by Trip advisor... sorry this place is just an over priced motel.
Every good motel in Rotorua has geo-thermal baths, these are plain water, and not very clean. Good motels in Rotorua charge $200-250 per night- this place charges $450 per night. The room wasn't cleaned properly, with a half finished bottle of wine in the fridge, dirty cutlery, and the previous occupants things left behind. The rooms are small, nicely painted, but terrible value.
The pool is small, and not thermal. The layout is poorly thought out- was a motel and they converted to a "hotel". Restaurant is poor value and the service average.
No I wouldn't go again there are plently of better places in Rotorua please patronize them
