Great location, clean and tidy with a heated pool and trampoline which we loved occupying in our down time. Close to the lake, cafes and restaurants just a quick walk away. The most memorable quality however was the service, outstanding guys, nothing was a hassle, really friendly and helpful. Thanks team 😊

My partner, baby and I recently stayed at Aura and were very happy with their hospitality, location and facilities. Upon arriving Kylie provided us with the best welcome we've received and gave us a run down of activities with a customized map and local vouchers. Her personalized touch even included calling ahead to the restaurant she recommended to surprise my...

This cute little hotel is tidy and close to eat street which has loads of bars and restaurants. The couple running the place couldn't be more helpful, friendly and welcoming. Kids and adults spent hours in the warm pool night and day and the two mineral pools were easy to access and a great addition. Rooms are an older style...

We stayed at Aura for a couple of nights. Our hosts, Josh and Nick were wonderful and very helpful in providing information on places to visit and very professional and friendly. I would certainly recommend Aura as a place to stay. It's close to the lake, shops and restaurants.

This is the second time I've stayed at Aura since Nick & Josh took over and I wouldn't stay anywhere else in Rotorua. Fantastic and welcoming hosts make it a pleasure to stay here. The rooms are clean, well presented, warm and comfortable. The kids adore the pool. And being located so close to the lake and town means that...
