      My studio unit was very comfortable and clean, and I felt quite at home there. Loved the thermally heated swimming pool outdoors, and the thermal spa indoors, and it was great to come home and use these after a day exploring. Free wifi worked very well also.

      The experience of warm or themal pool, location near to city centre, facilities very good, nearby Rotorua Thermal sites, staff very friendly and very central.I Will recommend the Motel to my friends and family members.

      Internet wireless was not available

      The owners were so helpful! Welcomed us, showed us the thermal pool and trout stream, and booked us into an evening Maori meal and cultural experience. They went out of their way to make sure all was good in the room, and when we returned after checking out, they had found a coat we'd left and made sure we got it back! We'd go back if we were going to be in Rotarua again. We liked that it was away from the tourist area, and not in the midst of many hotels.

      The lighting in the room was harsh, and difficult to use for reading in bed. Would have liked to have had bedside lamps instead of wall and ceiling fixtures.

      The cottage was spacious, and hosts very very friendly.

      Probably need a bigger overhaul and modernizing.

      The owner/manager met us at the front door they were soo helpful we stayed 2nights instead of the planned one night. As new owners we wish them well. Rooms spacious & clean. Close to attractions etc. Would recommend.especially to families.

    • Couple
      9.6

      The hosts were very friendly and helpful. Room was nice and clean, with a well furnished kitchen. Free wireless internet access was a big plus for us. Fairly quiet, considering our room was no more than 20 meters from Lake Road. Good location if you want to experience both the city and the around-laying attractions. Over all, we'd definitely recommend this motel to all other travelers on a budget!
