Although a little 'older' in style, this motel was very central and provided a high standard of accommodation blended with extremely friendly and efficient service thanks to owners Bruce and Cherri who just can't do enough for their guests. They helped us with bookings and lots of recommendations for things to do. The unit was very clean and comfortable. Thoroughly...

It's hard to know how to review this hotel. Our room was comfortable and had most things that we needed. It was fairly basic and not very stylish. Some of the other guests were very noisy. I would usually rate this standard of hotel as average, but I will give it extra points because the warm pools were excellent, and...

The room suited our family needs, the hosts were welcoming and always helpful and they even arranged to send on some items that we left behind. I'd certainly recommend this accommodation. It is centrally located.

Quite a few positives. Very good location; well managed by the owners - Bruce and Cherri were spot-on with their recommendations for things to do for a young family like ours; clean and well maintained. The kids enjoyed the swimming pool and mineral spas. Good value for money.

For a motel with swimming pool and mineral spas on site, this is a good value option. The thermal pools were really clean and great for relaxation after a day tripping in Rotorua. The location is quite convenient, shopping centre right across the street and city centre more or less within walking distance. Rooms were kept quite clean. I would...

Thank you for your review. The unpleasant smell you are referring to is sulphur, [Rotorua is renowned for it] and depending on which way the wind is blowing you can get it a little stronger but I'm glad it didn't put a damper on your time in Rotorua.

We chose this because of thermal pools but were very satisfied with accommodation. My sister and I took our mother for the first time to enjoy the thermal waters of Rotorua but wanted to stay at a place that had its own thermal pool. We have been here previously and enjoyed it then so it was only logical to go...
