Room was a very comfortable, a good size and very clean. Well located just off a busy road so was not noisy. Hosts were friendly and parking good. After a good nights sleep in a comfortable bed there was a great hot shower to enjoy.

The rooms were large. Good access to most of the tourist spots in Rotorua. Handy kitchenette and clean large spa bath/shower. Small deck with seating out the back (for units on lower level). Prettily lit outdoor gardens in anticipation of Xmas. Only negatives was the decor is looking tired and the bed was firm. Good value for money.

Stayed for two nights in a studio with spa. Room was extremely clean with everything we needed. Bed was comfy and balcony was quaint. The best part about this hotel was that it was extremely quiet, which made for a great night sleep. There was no air con however just a floor heater which was sufficient.

The room was very clean and spacious. Great wifi. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The hotel is located away from the main streets of the town so it's a bit of a walk otherwise an easy drive. Close to many places of interest. I highly recommend this hotel.

We discovered this one online and after reading Trip Advisor reviews. This place is a little gem. Definitely one that we will be coming back to for our future stays. Owners are friendly and accommodating. It is at the end of town though if you have a vehicle it is only minutes from everywhere. You can walk to town if...
