“Perfect hotel in Rotorua”
Reviewed April 28, 2014

Perfect place to stay in Rotorua! Very friendly staff, nice rooms, very comfortable bed, good restaurant. Upon arrival, the manager helped us with some super fun excursions and other tips for our stay. The staff really puts in the effort to make your stay a great stay.

The owners greeted our tour bus and took care of us during our stay. The bed was very comfortable and the room was charming--even a teddy bear on the bed!! Breakfast was delicious--don't miss out on the pancakes.

Great motel. The room was spacious and clean. The walls were a little thin, but other than that hard to complain.

The restaurant was good. Location central with ample parking. Staff are friendly and helpful.

All in all a good place to stop.

We spent one night in this oasis during a terrible weather bomb. We loved the retro conversion of an old fashioned two storey motel block into a modern black and white themed hotel. The staff were fantastic, especially Pierre who was graciously coping with overbooking for the Easter weekend. We had dinner and breakfast at the hotel and both meals were excellent. Highly recommend.

Room Tip: We were in room 23 which was on an upper storey overlooking the pool area. It was over the restauran...

We stayed here last Wednesday and found it to be everything the other reviewers had said. Great rooms with everything you could want, excellent service and very comfortable beds to sleep in. Location is great and so close to a large number of restaurants. Parking close to the rooms was also appreciated. We'll definitely stay here next time we visit Rotorua.

Exceptional staff made all the difference in this hotel. Our family of 5 stayed here while on vacation over the Christmas holiday break - although a bit of a trek to our start point for the Tongariro crossing hike, it was so worth it. Darryn rose in the middle of the night to pack delicious breakfasts and snacks for us, and had ample coffee and tea ready for our long van ride to the start point of the 9 1/2 hike on the Tongariro trail. Our three rooms were lovely and comfortable, beautifully decorated, and very clean. I so wish we had more time to spend in the area, and in the hotel. The thermal mineral pool is quite small, but the main pool is spacious with a lovely lounging area. I would not hesitate to stay here again, and would definitely recommend both the hotel and the restaurant. I hope to return soon.

We recently stayed here and it was a lovely place .It was in very easy walking distance to restaurants and the main street. The hotel had an award winning restaurant, pool and hot spa. The staff were friendly and obliging. The only problem I had was the maintenance man who decided to cut trees outside our room before 9:00 am and on the other days clean our outdoor furniture right outside our bedroom window at 8:30 am. They weren't even dirty. I found it a bit creepy and as we like to sleep in so it was rather disturbing. I am sure he was only doing his job but...?The rooms were, clean and crisp and the bed extremely, spacious and comfortable. The bathroom was beautiful. I would have loved it if I had requested a single hotel room. Unfortunately my travel agent stuffed up. I had requested a one bedroom, suite .My husband tends to sleep in and I had nowhere to sit or go in the room except a chair in a corner with no light so I had to go for walks each morning while he slept. This is an older style building and we were very close to people walking past and car park noise. It's beautiful, quirky and immaculate but not what I ordered.

Room Tip: Ask for a one or two bedroom suite away from the car park.
