“Dont Stay”
Reviewed 1 September 2013

From the moment we paid out money, it turned to custard.
We paid in cash, then were asked to give a bond. We said NO.
No elements in the oven. only one hot plate was working.
lights missing.
When we spoke to the owners about the oven, as we wanted to cook tea.
My husband was told, QUOTE... "I don't give a s**t, get something else for tea".

Went down the road to Silver Oaks Heritage the next night, SAME price, wonderful place.
Would highly recommend.

Stayed here for 4 nights but wouldn't do any more. Rooms were dated and our oven didn't work so had to use just the hob! Free wireless internet is a bonus and price was decent. Didn't use the spa. Room was quite big and shower was decent. Good location as was opposite supermarket and 5 minute walk to town. Could probably find somewhere better for the same price though!

We are currently touring New Zealand and this was a our first stop. We checked out lots of motels in the area and this was the best price by 20 dollars a night or so, however it is worth haggling! The room was a little tired but perfectly clean, it had central heating and it was very comfortable. We are 2 adults and 1 child (slept on converted couch) and had no problems. The smell of the sulphur is all around the town but this didn't hamper our stay.

Room Tip: You don't necessarily have to book in advance, shop around and find the best rates, it's wor...

We stayed at Pinelands for three days and had a very enjoyable time.
The apartment was spacious and clean. Two bedrooms for myself, husband and daughter. It had car parking space for our car.
The beds were very comfortable and the bedrooms quite large with enough room for our luggage.
The lounge/kitchen area was spacious and well equipped to make simple meals.
The lodge was situated over the road from the large supermarket which was ideal for self catering. The supermarket was open from 6am to midnight.
We had a wonderful stay in rotorua and really enjoyed the area with its geo thermal activity/mud pools and sulphur smells which you quickly get used to.
I would recommend pinelands for a stay in rotorua. It is not a new modern lodge but it is convenient, clean, comfortable and reasonably priced.

We drove around to lots of motels to try and get the best place for the price and found this one. The lady was lovely who owns the property and offered loads of advice about good places to visit. She knew a lot the Waitamo caves and which Mairo village was best to go to.

The accomodation was very big with a seperate bedroom to the lounge and kitchen. It was all very dated but was excepionally clean. There was also two spa pools you could use but as with everywhere in Rotorua is spells of sulphur, which you get used to after a while!

We liked this place so much we ended up staying 5 nights instead of 3.
