Stayed for three nights and enjoyed every minute of our experience. Staff were most friendly, welcoming and informative. It was lovely to receive a homemade muffin delivered to our room on arrival. Received many great recommendations of what to do and see. It was nice to return each evening to all the animals that were so well cared for. Accommodation...

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,

Very close to shops for supplies and tourist attractions. Karin even pointed out free attractions that the kids would enjoy. We...

We arrived here and were given a grand welcome. Karen was most helpful in matters outside the scope of the motel - much information about Rotorua and all its tourist attractions. The breakfast was good, the rooms were more than adequate and the night's rest that we dearly needed was excellent.

This motel was awesome. Great kiwiana memorabilia and fit well with our family. We had 3 under 4 and it was a great place for our 4 year old to visit the animals and have fun outside. The owners are very friendly and when you put in requests they work on it straight away,
