We planned to stay one night in Rotorua but didn't make any reservations. So we decided to call this motel after reading the execellent reviews! What a gem! Only minutes away from the city centre and for a great value, this is the place to be. Loved the extra touch of muffins and milk. Truly a heart warming kiwi hospitality! What an amazing country with amazing people!!!

Stayed four nights with my wife and two children aged 3 and 6 in a 2 bedroom unit. The units were modern and clean, I used the car BBQ outside which was great and the kids enjoyed the park and the animals. The mini golfwas also a hit with them, the location is close to many main attractions and only 4km out of central Rotorua. The only thing that I would add would be a DVD and TV in the main.

We did enjoy our stay with you, even though it was only one night! We thought your unit was clean, comfortable, loved the REALLY hot water and being given a jug of milk (not the usual pull apart plastic capsules of imitation), muffins on arrival and proper tea and coffee in the breakfast room was a true bonus. A home away from home. Thank you Karen and co - we shall be back.

This is the 2 nd time we have stayed here. Lovely for the children. They loved the animals especially the spotty dogs. Lodge rooms are very well kept and clean and tidy. Would certainly return to this Lodge. Would recommend it for families.

Room Tip: If you are travelling with another family suggest you have a room next door.

We had a great 4 nights at Hideaway lodge while home in NZ with our two children. Our little 2YO still now some weeks later talks about the farm and the animals. The rooms are a decent size for a family and the facilities are wonderful, I especially loved the Car-BQ.
