The receptionist was an awesome guy helpful, friendly, and the best. The room was big enough and suitable for us and we were 6 people. Overall, if u came to Rotorua and u have a car go and stay there. The price of a family room is very reasonable. The spa was 24/7 working and clean and u should try...

This is a motel as there are no services. Voucher was for $200 and room was $118 - conditions of the voucher were that we had to...

I booked this "hotel" on a site which marketed its mystery hotel listings as 5 star accomodation at 3 star prices (I have booked these before overseas and been very pleased) for three reasons - it was stated to be a hotel (I wanted the extra facilities a hotel has as opposed to a motel), it had a 4 star...
