We used this as a stop off whilst travelling from the northland to the central area for visits to Rotorua and the hobbit on set at matata.
It was relatively easy to find - not far (10 minutes drive off highway 1 which passes by the city).
Check in was friendly and straight forward and the deluxe double accommodation itself looked recently refurbished, as did all the interior. It was clean and straightforward with a good size bathroom (over bath shower), nice quality complimentary tea and coffee, and a good size tv with a good range of sky channels. The bed was comfortable too with a proper duvet! Wifi is free but only for 100mb so checking email and a bit of researching our next stay and it was all gone. Also the shower was a little disappointing pressure wise. These are the only reasons really why I wouldn't give this 5 stars.
There are a couple of fast food restaurants and pub food within a 5 minutes walk and if you're feeling more adventurous, Thai, Indian and Japanese restaurants 10 minutes walk down the road.
The on site cafe made breakfast easy and our food was of a good quality.
All in all a good value and pleasant, reliable place to spend a night.More
