Loved that there was a spa with instant hot water and the staff were ultra helpful, accomodating, professional & approachable. Asequate amount of beds. One queen bed upstairs and another down stairs plus a sofa bed. The bathroom was lovely with a big shower and good floor space. Downfall was cleanliness with the sofa bed; there were food pieces, hair, wood chips & other little things in the folded split part of the sofa when you put it down into a bed. The curtains were really dusty and the bed cover had an odour on it. The boxing around the spa pool was fragile and falling apart with staple bits and little nails sticking out (not great in general but terrible with an active toddler) and the wood part to box off the pipes and inifinity gas heater was fragile and falling to bits as well. Also there needs to be a mat between the bathroom and backdoor so when entering after using the spa, it won’t be so slippery. The room was very small but there was a lot crammed into it. You couldn’t open the drawers to access utensils without having to pull the chair out and having to move the table over. The tv is set down far to low so the view was obscured by the bed next to it and it was a very tight fit down stairs with so much furniture in such a tiny space. Walls are chipped and cracked with markings on them & the art piece in there was broken but hanging off a small hook above the bed so we took it down to be safe. Enjoyed my stay overall based on staff will be back 😁

very disappointing

Cons: place needs regular maintenance and an upgrade in facilities
Spa pool in back of unit drained water whilst we were in it, turned jets on and they wouldnt turn off. car parking was very cramped and tight. Beds had no legs and the electric blankets didnt work. taps in bathroom rusty and dirty, light in bathroom flickered and buzzed and heating rail didnt work. was not impressed at all, was not worth paying full price and would never stay again.

Ok for a bed for a night

Pros: the hot spa
Cons: just a general clean remove cobwebs
Location: Heaps of things to do. Canopy tours
Was alright, for a bed when having a fun day out. Not a place to spend a lazy day.

Definitely not a 4 star as they advertise

When you pay peanuts you can't expect diamonds. It was ok but wouldn't choose the hotel again. We had no other choice hence stayed. Is in need of a major revamp. And cleaners could do a better job. Bonus was the wifi ... was excellent.

Average rooms. Tidy but not that clean. very narrow drive with awkward parking. Had good room upstairs and staff were friendly but place need a major revamp I guess that's why it's fairly cheap to stay there. Smoking in courtyard outside so the smell goes through unit.

Was a nice motel 20 years ago

Pros: It's location was ideal, price was good and it was quiet.
Cons: The complex is very tired but this I could have accepted, what really disappointed me was the standard of the house keeping.
Location: Did not use as was on family business.
Being on my own and with a last minute decision to go to Rotorua for family reasons I used your website to get a reasonably priced motel. Price was good but oh dear it did not live up to the images portrayed on your site. Was pleased to move on.

Good size units for good price

Pros: The bed and linen, and quiet
Cons: cleanliness
Location: about 20 minutes walk from centre of town, right near a bus stop
The unit was a nice size, the bed was very comfortable and the location was nice and quiet. There was an extra bedroom upstairs as well, so in total 2 big beds and a sofa bed. The shower and bathroom in general were quite grotty, with lots of dust and mould - not what I expected for a place with 4 stars on the sign out front. No floor towel or wash cloths were provided, but the hand and bath towels were nice and thick.

Very tired

All very tired and grotty. Tap on spa pool held together with sellotape and jets broken. Gas heated water in a thermal resort! Comfy bed the only positive
