Clean, spacious units and friendly staff who go the extra mile to help (even posting an item we left in our room back to us). Our children loved the spa, heated pool, playground (and the cat!), as well as the space to ride their bikes around with other kids staying there. Unlimited wifi and bike storage was much appreciated. We...

We stayed with our two kids and were so happy to be by the gorgeous lake and with a fantastic playground and pool/spa! Will definitely stay again. We left some keys behind and they posted them on to us which was very helpful. Clean and comfortable!

A wonderful and very peaceful place to stay. The views are amazing as just on the lake and the place is very accessible to get into to town and all the attractions. It was the perfect place to stay for our family of five for a peaceful break away from the hustle and bustle of Auckland. The attention to detail...

Room was very clean and comfortable. The surroundings were amazing (right on the lake) with trees and nice views. Staff helpful and pleasant and the view from the outdoor hot tub over the lake in the morning is great. Highly recommended.

Stayed there just after Easter holidays last week. The motel has fantastic views of the lake and it is a nice tranquil place only a short drive away from the hustle and bustle of the busy tourist city. Love the fact that it was right at the water's edge of the lake with no roads in between the motel and...

WE had a family get together in Rotorua for a week - 4 units, 5 kids, plus grand parents. All found the units clean, well maintained, and comfortable - we especially liked the black out curtains! !0 min away from the hustle and bustle of the town and Rotorua's famous sulphur smell, but it does mean you need a car....

Strong heater, great service and lake view. The apartment was spacious and cozy, plus fiber connection! The owners were lovely and thoughtful, they lent us clean towels for us to take out during the day for our spa trip, so our own towels won't get the sulphur smell...

You are right on the lake front, we take our boat and there are no issues with parking. Right out of the hussle of town but not too far away to drive in if you want to. Our children love staying here with the pool, spa, dvd's and books on offer. The new owners were great - we accidentally left...
