Rotorua Hideaway Lodge
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 2 March 2013 via mobile

We planned to stay one night in Rotorua but didn't make any reservations. So we decided to call this motel after reading the execellent reviews! What a gem! Only minutes away from the city centre and for a great value, this is the place to be. Loved the extra touch of muffins and milk. Truly a heart warming kiwi hospitality! What an amazing country with amazing people!!!

Stayed four nights with my wife and two children aged 3 and 6 in a 2 bedroom unit. The units were modern and clean, I used the car BBQ outside which was great and the kids enjoyed the park and the animals. The mini golfwas also a hit with them, the location is close to many main attractions and only 4km out of central Rotorua. The only thing that I would add would be a DVD and TV in the main.

We did enjoy our stay with you, even though it was only one night! We thought your unit was clean, comfortable, loved the REALLY hot water and being given a jug of milk (not the usual pull apart plastic capsules of imitation), muffins on arrival and proper tea and coffee in the breakfast room was a true bonus. A home away from home. Thank you Karen and co - we shall be back.

This is the 2 nd time we have stayed here. Lovely for the children. They loved the animals especially the spotty dogs. Lodge rooms are very well kept and clean and tidy. Would certainly return to this Lodge. Would recommend it for families.

Room Tip: If you are travelling with another family suggest you have a room next door.

We had a great 4 nights at Hideaway lodge while home in NZ with our two children. Our little 2YO still now some weeks later talks about the farm and the animals. The rooms are a decent size for a family and the facilities are wonderful, I especially loved the Car-BQ.

This is a great place to stay. I have stayed on and off over the last 10-12 years and it only gets better. I have stayed with my partner on our own and with children and either way its great. If you want a nice peaceful place with lovely clean and tidy rooms to stay then this would be it, and for the kids there is so much...lots of room to play, animals galore for them to pat and feed if they want to, big play area (swings, slide etc.) , golf, bbq areas, picnic tables and best of all, extremely friendly and helpful management.
Its not far from all of the activities Rotorua has to offer and also not far to the city center.
We look forward to the next trip to Hideaway Lodge :)

Hi there Elaine, always a pleasure seeing you, thanks for the review. Yes children do love it here as well as the parents, as the parents get to have a bit of a break from the children while they are off exploring the property. We look forward to hosting you again soon, Warmest Regards Karen & Lindsay.

We had a lovely 3 days at Hideaway Lodge, Our grandson loved everything about it , the playground was awesome , all the ladders to climb and the tubes to hide in, he also loved playing with the animals especially the dogs, he could not eat his breakfast fast enough to get out to see them.We thought we had found a real gem, everything from booking in to booking out was really easy. Karen was great she gave us some good ideas for things to do places to see and paces to eat in the area. Thanks Karen you gave 3 generations of our family a great holiday.
