We booked for three nights and they put us in a tiny, dark room the first night. We complained, that was all they had available and they promised to move us the next day. At a premium of $20/day we moved to a fabulous 3BR/2BA apartment style room. The staff was very nice. There is a cute practice in NZ...

I wish we had been staying longer! The location was perfect. Super close to the Skyline venue and Rainbow Springs. Our 2 bedroom unit was fantastic. It was made up of two separate rooms joined seamlessly by a doorway between. A novelty for kids to have their own bathroom and kitchen. Grounds were lovely, staff were friendly. Great communication prior...

Spent one night here and enjoyed the convenience of having all ammenities for cooking. Friendly helpful staff, free wifi and close to the skyline and rainbow springs parks. 5 mins drive to town centre. Would rate 5 if there was a better heating system. Just a little space heater in the room. Other than that it's great place to stay.

We had a studio room for a one night stay in Rotorua. We received a warm welcome. The studio was comfortable with a well equipped kitchen area, sectioned off from the sleeping area and we had a large bathroom. There are nice grounds and an on site restaurant. The motel is on the edge of town, but it is just...

Due to activity in the area, we were only able to book two nights at this location. The staff is excellent, very friendly and welcoming. We were able to check-in a little earlier than expected which was very nice as we were tired and wanted to get some rest. We were placed in a unit overlooking the stream. Very nice...

We stayed for two nights, 2/28 & 3/1 and had a wonderful stay. The 2-bedroom unit was clean, well-appointed bathroom and kitchen and spacious living room. Our bedroom had a queen bed which took up most of the room but there was sufficient room for clothes and suitcases. We were greeted with warmth and given good suggestions and directions. The...

Pretty much your basic Motel but the bathroom was huge, the grounds were very nicely maintained, nice little kitchenette in the room. Breakfast served to your room for a small fee and it is a pretty good breakfast. The biggest plus is the on site restaurant, the food was excellent! I had the Lamb Rump special and it was outstanding!...

The room and amenities were great. The staff (from the groundsmen to the receptionists to the cleaners) and their service even better. The Restaurant is also definitely worth trying. Great location for accessing Skyline etc. Looking forward to returning soon.

We had a room, with a separate bedroom. in the bedroom were two queen-sized beds, but not much room to get around the beds. If we had been with more people than just us, it could have been quite cramped. We felt it was not the best of value at the price we paid, as breakfast was not included. The...

Stayed here for just one night as were going to the local Maori experience and it fitted in with our plans. Firstly, what a fantastic and most friendly welcome from Karen on the front desk. Made us laugh and feel oh so welcome following a long drive that day. The room was spotless, well kitted out for everything and the...
