The manager should work in tourism, she was amazingly helpful with tour ideas and bookings. The motel was immaculate with lots of happy flower gardens. Had the best salmon ever in the restaurant. Everyone was so friendly. Laundry facilities were also much appreciated.

We have stayed here on numerous occasions and have always found the staff courteous, friendly and helpful. The facilities are well furnished and the gardens are well kept with stream walks meandering around the property. The facility is also dog friendly (small to medium dogs) with a park within walking distance.

This has become our place for a weekend retreat. Close enough to Rotorua's attractions but quiet enough to just chill out and relax. the gardens and trout stream are a delight. Also small dog friendly so we can enjoy our time away without worrying about Paddy and also no costs for a kennel.

Excellent accommodation! Comfortable bedroom, sparkling, clean bathroom, a well equipped kitchen and a spacious dining and seating area. On the outskirts of Rotarua with its own garden and trout stream - a delightful place to stay with the added bonus of friendly, helpful staff.

Best hotel of our whole trip in NZ.

It was very clean, nicely furnished, comfy beds (I loved the heated towel rails..a novelty for us coming from Qld). Instead of bitumen and a few bushes around the accom, we enjoyed the gardens ( lovingly cared for) & the...

Dear Crystal, It was great to hear you enjoyed your stay with us. Also good to know that you enjoyed the gardens as we are always trying to make these interesting so that when people stroll around the stream setting and the units, they get to see a touch of new Zealand flora. Thanks again for staying with us Kitty

Counter staff were very kind on the phone. We had to travel over 3 hours to come here and the staff were very considerate as we missed the latest check in time of 9:30. They were very helpful in showing us to our room also. The rooms are nice and big and very home feeling. The spa bath was exceptional...
