Great price in comparison with accommodation elsewhere in N Z , and room had everything we needed and was very comfortable. Location was great, and owners provided us with good information which helped us make the most of our two days.

Made very welcome right from the start. Good local information offered in a pleasant manner. All facilities you need are there in a spacious room. The location with a supermarket less than 5 minutes walk away and the main road into town within easy walking distance. Excellent. The building may be older but that does not mean the welcome is...

This was a great way to finish our NZ holiday. The hosts are lovely, patient folk who helped us squeeze the last bit of fun out of our stay and wrap up our final transportation plans. We had everything we needed and felt welcome from the start.

We stayed there because it was recommended in Lonely Planet. The owner helped us get checked in and gave us a good overall "sense" of the city. He even knocked on our door an hour later to tell us about a combination Maori entertainment/dinner special a few blocks away. The location across from the mall/restaurants was great but the room...

Don't expect much and you will be pleasantly surprised. The hotel is around the corner from the mall so walking distance to restaurants and bars etc. good rooms comfy beds and a good price. The spa was nice too. Not as easy to find but there again neither are diamonds.

As a new New Zealander this was my first visit to Rotorua, I found Six on Union in the Lonely Planet & it said the owners are from Yorkshire so being from Sheffield I thought I'd try there.
