A very well-presented motel in a quiet part of town, but still close to the centre. The staff are friendly and the grounds are very tidy. My room looked recently renovated, the decor was modern and in great condition. The real coffee was a nice touch. There's plenty of natural light, and many power points.
Very well priced and I would happily stay here again.

Nice quite location. Very friendly management and very helpful. The Restaurant (Dixie Brown's) they recommended for dinner was a great choice. We had a first floor room which was more than adequate for the job. Parking was nearby and with plenty of room to manoeuvre.
Good place for a stopover.

Very warm welcome with good recommendations for places based on local knowledge; we therefore avoided the tourist traps of Rotorua. The appt was clean & spacious with an obvious female touch & the hosts very accommodating. It is a bit of a walk from the centre, however the town restaurant portions are very big so the walk back gives you the opportunity to work off all the calories. Would definitely recommend & stay again

This is the second time I have stayed here but when booking on line I forgot I had stayed here once before. This motel is ideal for a night stopover but lacks facilities for a holiday stay.
I booked a studio room which was clean and comfortable and offered all I needed for an overnight stay.
Tracey was friendly and offered suggestions where I could dine. However as it was late and I had driven a long way I opted for the Wishbone menu that was in the room. Tracey arrived with it heated on a tray and it was very satisfactory and well priced. ( 16.90)
My only concern is that just as the last visit I was upstairs which is a hike with a heavy suitcase. The previous visit I had seasonal fresh fruit also to carry upstairs to put in the refrigerator.Tracey did offer assistance but I made do with transferring what I needed from the suitcase to a small bag.
The location is excellent for the lake and town centre.

Room Tip: Upstairs difficult if you have lots of luggage.

We were walk-ups. Picked the place from AA book. The front desk was friendly, but there was another guest there asking for a roll of toilet paper because there was none in his room. We asked for a king room, got/took a small room with king bed, with frig, tea pot, & toaster only, The room had no place to put a suitcase and open it, and leave it open. Had to sit one on a chair and one in front of the door. Had to put one on the bed to open the door. Shower door stuck badly, only hand soap, and body soap, no shampoo. The hair dryer was on the wall over desk, a good 10 feet from bathroom and not in the bathroom. We have had bigger and better rooms for same price on this trip.
