We travel quite a bit and stay in 4 or 5 star hotels. Nothing ever seems to be 100%. BUT HERE IT IS! We were booked one night but liked the place and it's owners so much we extended our stay to 3 days and took a vacation from our vacation, just kicked back and used this as our base to explore the region. The owners, Allan and Shirley, were very accommodating and gave us all the info about Rotorua and the surrounding area. Allan's a kick and Shirley's a doll.
The room was a king size studio that was very roomy with a balcony that overlooked a park (Room 12). The kitchen was well equipped. The only thing lacking was a stove but we learned to cook eggs in a microwave! It had a fridge, electric teapot, French coffee press, corkscrew, etc. The whole place was SPOTLESS! The bed was comfy and the linens nice. And then there was the in-room spa bath.....it was HUGE! The shower head was a large rain one with good pressure. And again, SPOTLESS!
All over New Zealand they have a very annoying habit of being stingy with the internet. This code, that code, available for free but only for a half hour and only in the lobby, etc. etc. This place had FREE INTERNET THAT WAS ON THE ENTIRE TIME!!!!!!!!!!!!! The whole country could take a lesson here, it's good for all businesses to share the resource.
This was such a good find in a town with countless motels and hotels.
