“Friendly, good location, a little dated but good value for money.”
Reviewed 9 January 2010

We stayed in a 2 bedroom appartment which was a little dated but very clean. A 5 minute walk to the centre of town and a 10-15 minute walk to Lake Rotorua. Cinema across the road and plenty of Bars and Restaurant in the centre of town. Friendly and helpful staff and owners who can recommend and book your activities for you, sometimes with discounts.
For teenages and immature adults you have to go to the Luge rides down the mountain and the Sky Swing which is also there. You can get a package which is heaps cheaper which includes 2 Luge rides,Skyswing and Gondola ride to the top of the mountain. But if you can get more Luge rides than 2, do that because it costs $9 for 1 go, and twice is not enough.

Reviewed 7 May 2009

We recently stayed at this motel with our baby and had what we considered the perfect family holiday. The room was spacious, very clean and well equipped with a kitchen unit that had everything we needed. We felt very at home. There is a lovely outdoor pool that is heated which was great for us as we could take the little one in for a swim. I am quite surprised to read the review 'faulting' the owners as we found them very warm and accommodating to our needs. In saying this I would recommend if you are looking for a place to 'party' then this is not the motel for you.

Reviewed 26 October 2008

A clean and tidy premises on arrival,but what a unpleasent experience with the owners. We booked 4 double units with plunge pools,and were made to feel unwelcome from the initial booking phone call. I thought that maybe Cybil was having a bad day, but once we arrived and inconvenced her by asking why the hot water wasn't working in our plunge pool, she explained how all these terrible people that pay money too stay here wear things out - and they expect them to keep them maintained :"the cheek of these paying customers" - getting the picture... Things just got worse from here. They didn,t have a bible in the room, but they did have a rule book of similar thickness. Then there's all the back up rules pined up every where in the room. #1 thou shall not enjoy yourselves. What ever you do, don't stay here - it will put a real dampner on your holiday.

  • Liked — leaving
  • Disliked — the fact we booked here in the first place
