We stayed here for 2 nights so that we could do the White Island trip - we were lucky that this was the day before the tsunami warning so it went ahead as planned and was an excellent experience from start to finish.
We booked both tour and motel online from UK and the process worked well for us. The motel unit was fine - although I agree that the large windows don't afford much privacy on the ground floor. Overall though the room was very clean and comfortable, and we found the service in reception was very friendly and efficient. Would definitely recommend the White Island experience.
