Our family had a fantastic time here! Management were very friendly and extremely helpful. We had planned to stay 1 night but so glad we stayed two. Don't be fooled by exterior of this park it provides a unique New Zealand experience. Our 3 boys loved digging in the black sand to make their own hot pool. We then went back to the park and enjoyed their much cleaner version. The hangi we cooked was close to the best meal of our 3 week holiday. This park gave us our most unique experience throughout all of NZ that we visited. We can't recommend it highly enough.

Last night we stayed in the Cosy Cottage and we were just amazed. After a long day out in the rain we were glad that we could use the Hot Pools, which are included in fee you pay! A warm welcome and a few advices what to do in Rotoroa later, we found ourself provided with a spade to digg our own Hot Pool on the Hot Water Beach next to the Holiday Park on the lake side. It was a really funny expierence although our "Pool" was only deep enough for our feet. The friendly staff also gave us a pan to use in the amazing steam oven, so we made our own hungi, just delicious!:) While we waited on the food we took a break in the Hot Pools again, this time the ones in the Campingground (far better, than your own hole;)) and watched the stars in calm and relaxing water.
We enjoyed your stay completly and hope, that many people come! Its the place to be in Rotoroa!

We always stay at cosy cottage when in N Z. Jo/Danny and the staff, very friendly and helpfull,site very clean and quite.We love the hot tubs, and food cooked in the hangi is a must, even for a novice. Cosy cottage is a big part of Rotorua for us and will stay again when in N Z.

Room Tip: Tourist information advised us, we advise you.

We stayed at the Cosy Cottage camp site on the advice of the local tourist information centre and we were not disappointed. We rented a non powered site for our camper van and paid 20NZ dollars per person per night.

First of all the staff are great, they are a young couple who run the place and will go out of their way to do anything for you. We were given a map for the town and they talked us through everything there is to do and how to get there. They also tried to save us money on a few attractions and places to eat.

The facilities are of a high standard. There is a big outdoor swimming pool and 3 heated natural mineral pools which are available to use until 10pm. We used them twice a day and they were very popular in the evening which was great. There is a large kitchen to cook your food and a large communal area which had a tv area and a pool table. A very unique and wonderful amenity of the camp site is their natural thermal steam cooker which uses the thermal heat from the local lake to cook anything. We used it to cook lamb and fish and both meals were amazing.

Around the campsite there is a large childrens play area, a bubbling hot mud pool which is fenced off but is interesting to look at. Possibly the best feature of the site is the small private beach by the lake where you can dig in the sand and unearth hot water from the ground and make your own private beach spa! Very interesting indeed.

If you are planning a trip to Rotarua and you are looking for a room, campervan or tentsite then make sure you stop by this place. You wont be disappointed.

We travelled across the whole North Island and stayed in a number of Holiday/Campervan Sites and all of them were great. But Danny and his team at Cosy Cottage Holiday Park were simply a cut above the rest. The park was great, the facilities were very clean but the Service that Danny provided was so great we haven't stopped telling everyone about his holiday park since we got back. He was so helpful and informative that he took our stay in Rotorua from being really good to Fantastic. We thought we had planned the stay to perfection, but the Restraunts, Maori dinner and other activities that he encouraged us to do just made our time there so much better.
We would definitely recommend this Holiday Park to all of our friends. Thanks Danny.
