My husband and I stayed at the Silver Fern for 2 nights after seeing positive reviews on Tripadvisor. The room was spotless and large with lots of windows and a kitchenette. The surprise was the bathroom! Ours was huge with a shower and a big hot tub. We had planned to go to the thermal baths but saved our money and soaked in the tub instead!
Alan and Shirley, the owners, couldn't have been more helpful with advice about what activities were best. They were also very welcoming and helped us understand what the Kiwi reputation for friendliness was all about. They have 2 bikes which we borrowed to ride into town. There is also a free washing machine - dryer is coin-op.
By the way, we were hesitant to go to Roturua as it seemed like it might be too touristy for us. We found the town delightful and if you pick your activities away from the crowds, you'll find the town a pleasure.More
