“This place is fantastic”
Reviewed August 27, 2007

We stayed here for three nights this month and will definitely be staying there again when we return.

The room was a very good size and had a full kitchen. No matter how cold it was outside, the room was always warm (without needing to use the heater).

The mineral pools were fantastic. Set at a constant 42 degrees, they were great for soothing aches and pains and general relaxation.

The main street of Rotorua was one street over, and the motel was on the same street as the museum and polynesian spa.

Ambassador was fine, very well located close to food and drink options but off the main drags...parking right outside not a problem. Facilities were fine, even if like everywhere else in NZ it lacks flyscreens. Grab an icecream in the evening from Lady Janes two short blocks away and stroll the lakeshore!

Good location in easy walking distance to the Lake and the town, away from the ugly motel strip and no need for a car to get around.
Well-equipped self-catering rooms and three thermal pools (free to residents) to soothe away the aches and pains of the day. Helpful owners. Great value for money.
