Friendly, clean, with everything you need for a relaxing holiday
We have two girls 5 and 7 yo. They enjoyed the playground so much!
Central, with all Rotorua's attractions very close
Again, if in doubt. Go for it.

We stayed over Easter with a small child. There was lots to do on the property, golf, swingball, adventure playground with flying fox and numerous animals to interest all ages. Having an Easter egg hunt for the children was a thoughtful and generous touch on the part of the owners.

Our unit was clean with a kitchen and a separate bedroom, meaning that our daughter could go to bed but we didn't have to go at the same time.!

The motel is close to many attractions and just up the road from a good fish and chip shop. We would happily stay again:)

Stayed for three nights and enjoyed every minute of our experience. Staff were most friendly, welcoming and informative. It was lovely to receive a homemade muffin delivered to our room on arrival. Received many great recommendations of what to do and see. It was nice to return each evening to all the animals that were so well cared for. Accommodation was so comfortable with lots of room kitchen was very well appointed. Highly recommended to anyone who enjoys a country atmosphere so close to the city.

Room Tip: You won't go wrong in whichever room is allotted to you.

Nice place - we are a couple in our 60s and we really enjoyed it. It was clean, well appointed and good value. No silly frills, but comfortable at the same time. We enjoyed the location and it looked like a good family place too,

Fantastic CLEAN unit with a kitchen. Such a good location that we could do activities with the kids in the morning have a day rest/sleep and head out for more sight seeing before being back for the animal feeding. Very close to shops for supplies and tourist attractions. Karin even pointed out free attractions that the kids would enjoy. We would recommend to anyone. Thanks for a great holiday.

Travelled for a Sunday wedding and found the location was near the wedding venue. Excellent rooms and cleanliness. Very friendly dog visited at night. A bit hard to leave if turning right and travelling north
