Perfect for our trip to Rotorua! Close to town, free parking, laundry facilities, great outdoor area for bbqs / evening meals and really spacious rooms. Definitely worth the price. We probably didnt need to pay extra for a spa bath in our room (given the hot pools in the area) but I'm sure others may utilise it more than we...

The 2 bedroom suite was cramped, very tired,,dirty and disappointing. The spa bath was unsafe .Not good value for money..We were so surprised this accommodation receives such positive reviews ..We weren't the only guests disappointed...
