Great location for the Whakarewarewa Village experience. An enjoyable stay with friendly staff, spacious room with all the mod cons, clean and tidy. We will stay again when back in town and would recommend to others.

A bonus was being able to to access sky for the sport - a bit of... More

If you have no car, there is a bus, but that only runs until 5:30 pm on weekdays and once every two hours... More

There is no air conditioning in the hotel whatsoever, you need to open your window which causes two issues: 1. the noise from passing traffic and wait for it... 2. the awful smell of sulhur dioxide exhausting from the Maori historical village two doors futher away. These thermal pools and gas exhausts are an awful smell so you need to... More
