Very comfortable warm family unit, enough for 4 adults and 2 small children. Pity the weather was rainy and the children could not use the play area. A little road noise but bearable. Location for us was great as we were visiting the National Feildays.

Highly recommend this place for families especially if you have young ones. I'm not usually a fan of budget accommodation but I was pleasantly surprised here. Our room was basic, clean, warm on arrival (it was freezing in Rotorua when we arrived so it was really nice to walk into a pre warmed room) it had a well appointed kitchenette...

Nice place - we are a couple in our 60s and we really enjoyed it. It was clean, well appointed and good value. No silly frills, but comfortable at the same time. We enjoyed the location and it looked like a good family place too,
