We had booked the White Island Rendezvous due to its handy location for White Island tours. Well equipped, large and comfortable room and well staffed reception. All well maintained and clean. Unfortunately due to the weather our island tour was cancelled on Saturday which was hugely disappointing. We may well be back in the springtime!

The rooms were clean and staff very helpful. Lots of interesting things to do and see and plenty of parking. Take some air freshener after all you are near a volcanic island so the air can smell sulphuric.

The location is excellent - this is the meet up point of the White Island tour, so you won't miss the tour if you wake up on time. The motel is very clean and the staffs are friendly. And free wifi (very fast)!! Also, you get $15 off the White Island tour price if you stay at White Island Rendezvous.

We stayed here as the cafe downstairs is the reception for the white island tour to the volcano which we did. The room was cheap, but worth the money, clean and quite big. offstreet parking and within walking distance to other restaurants and shops. Also had free wifi

We where making a "last time" visit together. My husband was very ill. The individual units were perfect as one had a ramp suitable for a wheelchair.

We stayed 2 nights so that we could do the White Island boat tour. Wonderful, clean, spacious motel unit. Cafe on site. Walking distance to pier with local fish and chip shop. Short drive to supermarket. Easy walk to restaurants. Staff were very friendly and helpful. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend this place highly.
