Reviewed 18 July 2014

Great value for money. The rooms are well equiped, with heated pools and mineral bath. Easy walking distance to main shopping precinct. Located in a manner where it is easy to go to out of town activities. Owners were friendly, helpful and knowlegeable of the area. Would stay again without hesitation.

We stayed here for a few nights and the place was great for what we needed! Close to the shops, a short walk to the eating district, and big enough to fit 4 big lads and a girl! Manager was also helpful, and keen to have a chat about the area!! Cheers

Hi Chris, Thanks for the great review, I'm glad you enjoyed your stay with us and had a good look at what Rotorua has to offer, we do try and point you in the right direction as far as things to see and do the last thing we want is for you to waste you money going to the wrong places.

Was there in June 2014. The name alone made it easy to find, and loads of shops across the road made life easy.
Rooms were excellent, and the owners (Bruce and Cheri Beesley) were pleasant and helpful. They waited up for us (as we were running late) and then showed us the heated mineral spa and the thermal spa that they had at the motel... Unexpected, and what a great way to 'warm' to the area! Even gave us a free wi-fi voucher...

Room Tip: we booked for 2 rooms and found they were great, comfortable beds, heaters had been turned on pre-ar...

Have stayed on several occasions.
Very clean and tidy. Great value. Handy to everything. But best of all are the immaculate thermal spa pools. Always clean and nice. Especially nice on a Winters day!
And rooms are thermally heated as well.
Will return again soon. Service is good. Hosts are friendly and knowledgeable.

Clean and comfortable, older-style motel with lovely heated swimming pool and 2 private hot spa pools. It was great to come back for a relaxing swim and soak. While older, the place was scrupulously clean and well maintained, the beds comfortable and the rooms warm. Not sure about the noise of the shower base flexing for the people below us as you moved about in the shower but all was clean & worked well. Motel is centrally located but very quiet. The owners were very helpful and accommodating of our late check-out. Thanks, we'll be back.

Hi Carol, Wow what a great review thank you so much. These older Motels have a great feel about them with their large rooms and geothermal heating, we have a lot of positive comments about how comfortable our beds are it makes for a great nights sleep. I know some shower base's move a little but I doubt if that can be heard downstairs as there is about 10 - 12 inches of concrete floor. With the Mall and Supermarket across the road we are very central. Thanks again and hopefully we will see you again soon?

Great service, really nice people. Everything was clean and tidy. The pools (4) were awesome, really clean and ranged from warm to hot. Rooms were really warm and cosy. Had full ovens in both the one bedroom and studio rooms. Very close to town, but quiet.
Would highly recommend.
