We have just had a 4 night stay in this well located comfortable motel. Our hosts, Yan and Peter, really made our stay a great one. Friendly, helpful, cheerful and the smiles always go a long way. More than equipped to prepare meals, the room, separate kitchen and shower/loo were all clean, well serviced and checked on daily by Yan...

It was well located within a short walking distance of a supermarket, liquour stores, the Polynesian Spa, takeaways & not much further to the town centre. The family room we booked was huge with a bedroom, living room (with couch, dining table & extra bed), toilet/shower room...

I was pleasantly surprised with our stay here. The room was a reasonable size and clean with clean linen on the beds with no marks that I could see. The shower was amazing and although I didn't use it myself I have it on good authority that the pool was very nice. The room did get very hot at night...

Stayed here for two nights as we explored Rotorua and Waiotapu and Waimangu geo-thermal areas. The motel is an easy walking distance to town and has a grocery store less than 5 minutes away as well. Room was clean and well equipped. The highlight were the friendly owners - we didn't have a car in the North Island and the...

A budget hotel with very friendly managers who wanted you to enjoy your stay. Our room was a bit dated but very clean, neat with everything you needed for nice stay. Full kitchen facilities, comfortable bed and...

This motel was a great base for exploring Rotorua since the motel is close to tourist sites. The room we stayed in had kitchen facilities with all the necessary cooking equipment and with the motel being close to supermarkets, preparing your own meals was possible. The room was comfortable and clean. The owners were very pleasant and welcoming. This motel...
