“Best Home Away From Home in Rotorua”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 April 2011

My teenage Children and I stayed here for 2 nights during Easter Weekend. The motel was very well equipted with everything we needed for a relaxing weekend away from home. We attended a festival arriving late, the spa was available to us with fresh towels and treats when we returned. A lovely breakfast was provided free of charge with many choices for our family. I would highly recommend staying at this quaint French flavoured Motel - our first choice to stay if we were travelling to Rotorua again. Three thumbs up. The owners were extremely friendly and accommodating to all of our needs.

Room Tip: The thermal spa was wonderful!

We looked forward to the hot thermal spa that was offered and the free internet. Unfortunately, we visited the spa and found it to be less than clean but hoped the heat would've removed any nasty bugs. By early afternoon we had fever and colds by the morning. The wifi closed once the office close. The couple even pretended not to understand me at one point - they were bilingual French/English speakers. We'd moved to them after leaving a hostel which didn't have a spa. Strangely, the manageress appeared to know where we'd stayed and where I'd made early enquiries. A thoroughly depressing start to a holiday in New Zealand. It's taken 7 days for the cold to subside.

KiaOra and thank you for your review. Please accept my sincere apologies for your experience. We should maybe explain that our geothermal pools are sulfur based and therefore when adding cold water (necessary) the water appears murky (residual hardened minerals)- while totally clean and checked twice daily. Our Wifi is available 24hours a day and not sure what happened on that day. We trust the rest of your stay was pleasant and hope to have the chance of letting you experience the Sequoia on a new occasion.Warm regards
