I am shocked at the small handful of reviews claiming the owners were rude. I can only wonder about the attitudes and actions of the people who had bad encounters. We found Brian and his wife to be so accommodating and helpful from beginning to end of our stay. My husband and I had a lake view with a hot springs tub, and my mum and son each had a smaller studio. Brian helped us with the grill so we had a lovely dinner under the stars, recommended a good restaurant for a second night, and turned the waterfall on in the very warm outdoor pool so we could enjoy that. He told us the best places for geothermal sight-seeing. We had a good time chatting with his wife and him. We used the motel as our base as we explored the Waitomo Caves, Hobbiton, Rotorua, Huka Falls, and more. No complaints! We recommend the Chelmsford.
