After having a horrible hotel experience, I booked this one to get away from it. Booked it super late and reception was so super helpful and amazing. They gave us discount vouchers and walked us to our room. Room was beautiful and had electric blankets. Very comfy. Foxtel and a nice bathroom. Just what I needed after a horrible stay...

It was a basic motel but great value, very clean, well maintained and the one bedroom unit was very spacious for a family of four. The hosts were friendly, caring and very helpful. The play area for the kids was a great distraction. The motel is perfectly placed between the mini golf and Rainbow Springs/ Gondolas. This was perfect for...

This motel was great value and the hosts were very welcoming and kind. A basic motel, but everything we needed. Super clean, nice playground, spa pool and right next door to the Gondola. We will definitely stay here again.

Had an enjoyable experience at this motel. Arriving at 11pm wasn't an issue for the host who stayed up to greet us and also gave us discount vouchers for neighbouring attractions (much appreciated). Clean and tidy motel and easy to find on a main road. Will be returning for our next rotorua experience :)

Just recently stayed here for 2 nights with some family. It's not in the heart of the city but it's only a 5 min drive away. The couple that look after the motel were so friendly and helpful.

The rooms are clean and comfortable. The Owners where very friendly and helpful. Every issue was fixed asap. Our Childreen enjoyed the Family atmosphere and had a lot of fun on the trampoline. The position is perfect for trips due it is possible to walk to some of the attractions.

Highly recommend this quiet motel near some tourist attractions, full cooking facilities with butcher and fruit and veg store opposite. Away from sulphur smell. Owners were very kind, would do anything to help. Very clean, older style but more than adequate rooms, comfy bed, great nights sleep.

Thank Robyn B
