“Good value and location”
Reviewed November 21, 2008

The hotel was in a good location and great value. Rooms were nice and clean and the hotel staff was very friendly. This hotel as their own hot pools so we didn't go to the other thermal pool/amusement parks. The hotel hot pool was okay but the water in 1 of the pools was not the cleanest.

Location of hotel is very good with supermarket right nearby. While in Rotorua, we drove to Waimangu Valley (great walks of different types of hot pools) and went to the Mitai Maori Hangi Dinner which was very cool.

Reviewed April 6, 2007

My wife and I stayed here in late March 2007 for a long weekend. The place was good value for money, the owners very welcoming and helpful and the location is convenient for walking to most of the town.

Good points included well stocked tea and coffee making facilities with plenty of choice of teas, microwave, fridge and a full set of dishes for eating in the room (or the hot tub). The tub was spacious and open to the sky and overall the room was comfortable.

Only negatives, the room was quite small for all the furnishings and there was some traffic noise - not annoying to our ears though.

Well recommended, we'll stay there again. They also have bigger rooms with a third bed and two bedroom units.

The owner, if he is a big man with moustache, is very nice and helpful and takes a good attention for his motel.

Since it is a motel, I like the motel near a supermarket but not next right to a supermarket if you know what I mean. Somehow, you could walk to the supermarket but I would rather drive.

There are one big warm water pool, one small warm pool, and two mineral hot pools, free of charge. It is very relaxing while in the meneral hot pool. Anyhow, some may offense mineral hot water smell. Therefore, some may try just a hot pool. They are not fancy spa pools but they work great and my family was satisfied.

I live in a double room suite. The room has a kitchen and all facilities you needed in the motel room. The room has a very big space. Each furnitures are located nicely in the room space. Anyhow, the hearter is blocked by the sofa but it is not a big deal.

The motel also has a luandry machine and a dryer. Just prepare your coins and powder could be bought at reception.

For those who couldn't be able to carry baggages to a second floor, I would recommend you to book a first floor since there is no elevator.
