Stayed in a double room with toilet and shower. It's clean and tidy. It provides all the basic need: microwave and fridge, table and chairs, kitchen utensils, cups and saucer,......Open and wide parking area or even roadside parking is available.

Great little place, right in the middle of Rotorua. Parking is limited on site, but there is street parking as well. The room was very small, but clean and comfortable. Wifi is free but limited, but there is an iSite a block away with unlimited free wifi. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I would absolutely stay here again,...

My bus arrived much later than expected from Auckland. But I called Tom before I arrived and he was very accommodating and even warned me that the bus from Auckland is always late. I was worried about not being able to check in but arrangements were made where I could check in. Tom also helped me with getting around by...

We stayed here for two nights. The place is clean and comfortably close to shops and dining. I could stay here again but would probably choose a more expensive place to have a bit bigger bathroom - this one was very tiny.

I stayed two nights here in a private single room. The room was barely big enough for a single bed and rickety chair, but the linen was clean and comfortable, and the communal showers kept very clean. The walls are fairly thin so it was easy to hear people outside, but in practice everyone was quiet and respectful after 10pm....

The place is well located and the owners are very nice. They helped us a lot with the bookings for the activities as we were staying a short time in Rotorua. They gave us many discounts for tours and visits. The rooms were hot (no air conditionner nor fan) and very narrow. The beds were comfortable. The bathroom was noisy...

A super spot just a few minutes walk from Rotorua centre. Really pleasant hosts. Spotlessly clean. We stayed 7 nights, if we return to New Zealand will definitely visit again. Plenty of parking on premises, everything you need all within a few minutes walk. Fantastic!!
