Rotorua Hideaway Lodge

We can definitely recommend a stay in Rotorua Hideaway Lodge. Themotel is very conveniently located - close to both the town and the highway and the apartment was very nice, clean, quiet and well-kept. Karen, the owner, was very friendly and helpful.

Our family group spend four memorable days for a family re-union in December 2013 . The grandchildren had lots of fun playing in the sand pit and the playground and everyone enjoyed the beautifully kept grounds, the animals and the facilities.There is no need to go out as there was plenty to do. We enjoyed being able to eat in the communal breakfast room (even though we all had self-contained units) it was really nice to be able to share our meals. Our host Karen and Lindsay we very welcoming and friendly. The units are comfortable, clean and functional, perhaps just a little dated but this does not matter as the Lodges location and surroundings more than make up for it. We would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Lots of different room configurations, good for families.

Hello Piglet - "WOW".....what a great review. Glad to read that you all had a great time here at the Lodge. Yes our location is great isn't it????......as its the first Motel going into Rotorua, and so close to all the attractions. The animals and facilities that we have around the place really make it don't they???

It is really helpful to have feedback like this, as it lets us know how we are doing, so that we can adjust what and how we do things better for our guests.

We close in wishing your whole group all the best for 2014. Karen & Lindsay

Stayed with my 6 year old, who immediately made friends and enjoyed the playgrounds immensely. Lot's of animals around, which the kids could help to feed. Made for a relatively quite stay for myself.

Room was good, practically no noise from adjacent units.

Our children loved Hideaway Lodge for it's creative outdoor playground and friendly dogs, ponies, alpacas, sheep, chicken, etc. It made their days! Our hosts were very friendly and helpful. The rooms were clean, the kitchen well equipped and the internet connection was good. The only drawback is the location close to the main road. Nevertheless, we really enjoyed our stay and found it a very good value and convenient base to explore Rotorua and surroundings.

Hideaway Lodge excels again to accommodate our group of 15pax. Rooms are clean, cosy with adequate kitchen facilities. Hosts Karen & partner have made a wonderful outdoor park for children to play and visitors to meet some lovely farm animals. Highly recommended!

A fantastic week with two young children. The outdoor areas kept the kids occupied for hours and they made some new friends. They really loved being able to help feed the chooks and brush down the miniature horses. The accommodation was suitably kitted out. Karen was. Lovely hostess. Highly recommend, especially for young families.

Hello David, Thank you kindly for taking the time to write a review, much appreciated.

Its great to know that what we are doing here is working so well for the families that we have staying with us. Thank you. We have been lucky enough this year to have lots of lovely people like yourself make the most of our facilities and what Rotorua has to offer.

Yes the outdoor area keeps the children occupied for hours, and brushing down the horses is great not only for them me as well, saves me a job to do later, plus the children get a lovely experience out of it.

We close in thanking you, and look forward to your return
soon, and so will the animals.
Karen and Lindsay.
