Is this place luxurious? No. But are you paying luxurious prices? No. This place suited our needs perfectly. Good location, easy to get everywhere and lots of free parking. Perfect. The beds were comfy and the apartment pretty comfy, The cleaning service offered was minimal, but thats no big deal really. Staff were friendly, and we enjoyed our stay. We...

Good location to visit the many attractions of Rotarua. Walking distance (about a mile) to Eat Street for your evening dinner. Comfortable beds and friendly staff who gave us a couple of discounts for local places to visit

Reports itself as a hotel but it is a motel. Only had free view channels. Carpet dirty and behind doors, finger marks on windows of sliding doors and spiders. No air-conditioning on a extremely hot day. Not Qualmarked not sure how it got its star rating.

I booked in at last minute when another accommodation option fell through. Harry & Punam had me checked in early so I could rest which I very much appreciated. Really happy with the service from all the staff. The standard of the rooms is good & the bed was very comfortable. Thanks guys!

Parking is 1st in 1st served outside your room which they do tell you on arrival, however this is plenty of parking and the security gates are...

There inadequate designated parking spaces and the minibar was bare. We booked and paid for two nights but checked out after the first night. We...

The hotel is in 30 minutes walking distance form the city center and close to a main road. Luckily we had rooms facing away from the street. Free parking available on site. Nice pool and Spa. Breakfast is rather average. We would rather stay closer to the town center next time.
