This lovely apartment was in a great location. We were able to walk to a lot of attractions. Kristen and Stewart gave us great information on the area. The apartment was quiet even though it was on one of the main roads. Felt very secure.

We stayed at East West for three nights in March, 2014 in a two bedroom cottage although there were only the two of us. I rated East West as very good not because it was luxurious but rather because we felt so comfortable there. The owner made us feel welcome from the minute we arrived and as he showed us...

Thank you Walter in taking the time for making comment. We are very pleased you found your accommodation homey rather than "fancy" as practicality while travelling is a premium.

We stayed in East West Apartments for two nights in Jan 2014 whilst on our honeymoon. We opted for a studio which was based upstairs in the main house. It was so spacious, clean, bright and comfortable and just what we were after. The studio kitchen was well equipped with modern appliances and crockery, and fridge stocked with a complimentary...

We enjoyed our stay at the apartments. They were very comfortable and had everything we needed. The pool was a great temperature and we had lots of swims. We loved that there were so many sky tv channels too. A few rules were relayed on check in, but other than that we had a great time. Would stay there again.

We stayed at East West for two days a few days ago on our way down through the North Island. We were pleasantly upgraded to a gorgeous little cottage, complete with a full kitchen, washing machine, dishwasher and even a complimentary breakfast pack. We loved the seating areas outside and the private use of the jacuzzi. There is off street...

We booked a two room apartment which came with everything you could ever need. Toko street is a very short walk to the shops and restaurants. The owner was very helpful and friendly. If I go back to Rotorua again I will book East west Apartments again.

If you are have high expectations, then forget it. We arrived to a not very warm welcome and were provided with a set of quite specific rules that we have to duly follow. The location itself is in the suburb of rotorua which basically has the sulfur odor all around. The cottage itself was quite rustic as compared to the...

Travelled to Rotorua for work. Guests were my husband and myself with two teenage sons and another adult (work colleague). The cottage was very spacious and offered all the amenities we required.
