      The service was brilliant!

      The noisy kids - but they were other guests!

    • Older travelers
      10.0

      It was spacious, comfortable, close to central Rotorua and all amenities. The value for money was excellent and yet above average accomodation and service. We will recommend ans we will be back.

    • Older travelers

      The room was great, caterered for our needs. Parking available can view car from rooms.

      The hours the office open and closed, need to stay open til say 11pm. No after hours room service. The book that tells you about the hotel was under the tv with the phone books etc, this should be placed near the phone in the room.

      Spa that was in the room

    • Couple

      It was clean, very roomy and it just felt comfortable as you walked in. The rate of the room was quite reasonable but just slightly on the expensive side for us. The room could be a little bit lighter. But it was really good that there were two heaters in the room. All in all we really liked the lodge and whould be happy to go back.

      The jacuzzi in the bathroom

      The lounge suite (bed settee) was uncomfortable to sit on. You sunk down into it. Was more comfortable to sit on the floor with your back against it.

    • Older travelers

      Its location.

      When we arrived we found that the unit was very cold. Had to turn on two heaters to warm it up.In the bathroom there was nowhere to put a toilet bag.

    • Couple
      9.2

      Quiet location very easy to really relax, the size of the room was bigger than expected. Bathroom facilities where also nice and spacious.

      Some of the curtins where a bit small and did not cover all the windows properly. The tv picture quality was not the best as new systems are out. Hot chocolates/milo as well in the drinks selection would have been very nice.

    • Family with children
      7.0

      Clean and well kept & quiet. Good location to shops and restaurants. Ample space for the family and great value for the money.

    • Group of friends
      10.0

      The environment is very nice. Amazing staffs, very friendly and helpful.

    • Couple
      8.8

      Good, clean, comfortable accommodation in a very great location.

    • Older travelers
      7.4

      Handy location. Top cooked breakfast delivered at the requested time. Great shower and spa with plenty of hot water.

      Finish of room not up to scratch after remodelling from being a conference room. Some power points inoperative. Soaps too small. Curtains too narrow to enable complete closure to assure privacy. Establishment described as a hotel but I would think Motel would be more appropriate! No breakfast menu options on a card available in the room.

    • Older travelers
      9.6

      Great location near to all the steamy bits and supermarkets as well

      Most motels we have visited have had a laundry facility, but sadly not this one. Our smelly socks had to do another couple of days. But then everything in Rotorua is smelly!

    • Family with children
      8.8

      We got a big room, with one bedroom as well as the main room. Lots of space for the family. Nice furniture, and great value for the money!

    • Older travelers
      4.6

      spa tub, spacious, quiet.

      no a/c, distance from town center, bathroom storage poor, no closet storage.
