Having called in while passing for a beer or two with the locals in the past I made a special effort to drive from Rotorua to swim in the nearby hot pools and spend a night at the tavern. $80 a night seemed reasonable for pub accomodation.

We stopped for a bite to eat after visiting the thermal park. We were the only ones there so I was little concerned about how the food was. We both had the cheeseburger and it was surprisingly good. The burger had nice flavor. The chips were cooked well.

We had not booked and needed a room for the night on the way north with the kids. This hotel has had a major paint job recently and staff were friendly. It's very basic but worked well for a night - and was a cheap option near Rotorua. On the loop road across the road which goes to Waiotapu thermal...
