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

Location: n/a
Unfortunately many of ht light switches didn't work, the spa was littered with dirt and petals. Not very attractive when all you want to do is relax. The room was fine. Nothing fancy but served its purpose. Other than receiving the key from the reception, I dealt with the staff via text. Not terribly personable but friendly none the less.

Filthy place to stay, cleaners really don't do a good job what so ever. Rubbish left in a cupboard from the people before us, stains on the bedding. Mould and grime in the bathroom. Dust and cobwebs everywhere. Staff don't communicate, on check out, nobody asked us how our stay was so I never got a chance to say how disappointed we were. Very gross
