Very pleasant place to stay

Mike and his family are very warm and welcoming. The facilities are clean and comfortable. Terrific value for the space provided. My only complaint was that the bathroom and bedroom were on different floors. Will definitely stay there again.

Unique Loft Style Motel Room

3 out of 5
by from Sydney
Posted Jan 15, 2017
A family of 6 staying in a big loft room is a good fun! However, sharing 1 bathroom requires some management. Big spa, though not from hot spring, is a nice treat to parents. No A/C & fly screens minus the amenity in summer. No on-site restaurant or pool but a nice playground for young kids. Otherwise, very friendly staffs & great cleanliness level keep it very popular for travelling families. 3 out of 5 stars. (NZ Qualmark rating gives 4)

Good value for money

This hotel is a good value for the money you pay. It is located right in the center - close to all attractions (short drive to wai-o-tapu). However, it is a bit dated. Beds are sagging too low - I did not sleep well. If you get a room with outside hot tub, beware of neighbors - you can hear them (we did not sleep till 3am). Staff is friendly and trying to do the best they can. Front desk person was nice giving us complementary spa treatment.

Fabulous place to stay in Rotorua

5 out of 5
by from Melbourne, Australia
Posted Sep 30, 2016
Pros: Rooms were better than you could ever hope for while the staff were all lovely.
Cons: Shame that it's on the corner of two busy roads. It was a bit noisy at night with some of the large trucks going by but that's out of their control.
Location: Just up the road from the middle of Rotorua and it was really easy to get around from there.
Huge rooms with great facilities - everything you could need for a stay of a night or a month! We used it as our base and found it very comfortable and spacious. The hot tub was fantastic too.

Loved our stay in part because your reception staff was excellent and so helpful! Our room was totally updated and imaculate. The location was so convenient to attractions , grocery store and away from hectic part of town. The spa was a nice addition. Thanks for a great stay!
