Loved the modern flare . Even though it was a remodelled motel it was tastefully done . Room had all the amendments that you require. Fridge , cutlery , bowls , plates. We had just come from Napier where everything is old, they can call it Art Deco but old is a better word.

Very comfortable hotel. We stayed two nights here, conveniently located close to "Eat Street" Amenities were of good quality. The thermal pool needs a bit of work however it was more than adequate for our stay in Rotorua.

I booked this hotel only because my regular one was full. Was pleasantly surprised at how modern and well furnished it is! And we had a beautiful apartment which was fully equipped with good quality appliances including a Nespresso machine with complimentary capsules. The location is also very good, short walking distances to the town center and the lake. Will...

This place is awesome. Well appointed, well located, amazing staff and great restaurant. It appears it was an old motel that has been converted. I love boutique hotels and this one did not disappoint. Clean, comfortable and zero complaints. Thank you for an amazing stay.

The staff of this hotel were very accommodating and helpful. When we first arrived, the manager boarded our tour bus to welcome us. Keys and welcome packets were all prepared in advance and ready for pick-up upon our arrival for a very smooth check-in process. When our tour departed Rotorua, another manager came on board the bus to say goodbye...

Great location and well appointed, being right next door to Eat Street was ideal, The sky wasn't working which was somewhat of an aberration to what was a relaxed and enjoyable stay, I'm sure we will stay again in future if in Rotorua

Even though this property is obviously an old 60s motel the standard of maintenance and renovation is excellent. Would like a ceiling or pedestal fan in the bedroom though for a bit of air movement. The staff were very helpful and the rooms were very clean.

This accommodation was located in a great spot next to Eat Street which meant we didn't have to drive. The breakfast was great in the morning, with excellent service. The room was clean and bright. The decor was modern and gorgeous.
