Guest reviews

  • Family with children

    It was located right next to the skyline gondola and we could just walk right over!

    There were no restaurants near enough by foot.

  • Group of friends

    It had a perfect location in relation to the event we were attending. It had modest charges. Very freindly helpful people running the motel

    A cold unit with inadequate heating unless you went to bed with an electric blanket on.

  • Group of friends

    The hotel facilities were great, nice and warm and we had a spa to use which was meant to be for communal use but ended up being used only by us.

  • Older travelers

    Easy to find just along the mainroad leading to Rotorua city centre, just 5 minutes drive away. Just opposite a convenience store. Located near the Gondola rides to a nice restaurant with good view of the surrounidng area. Just a short drive to the major attractions.

  • Older travelers

    the manager was extremely helpful in suggesting what to see

  • Older travelers

    Despite a rather down-market first impression the room was extremely comfortable and well equipped. Only aircon was lacking. Excellent value for money.

    Bathroom facilities in need of updating.

  • Couple

    Great location for Mitai Maori Village cultural experience.

  • Family with children

    Staff went out of their way to make stay a good one. Motel well located near Luge. Bird Park and Mitai Village

  • Family with children

    We found the owners to be most accommodating and helpful in all areas. They helped in selection of restaurants.

    There were no screens on windows or sliding glass doors.

  • Family with children

    very easy to find anything from here needed extra nite and was helped out thanks and do think anyone would enjoy this motel

    nothing wrong here top spot

  • Older travelers

    Once again we were charged when we thought we had already paid we will be looking into this when we get home this is the third place we have booked with your company that has asked for payment

  • Family with children

    Its right next to the gondalas and the animal park.

    The bathroom door didnt close plus there was loud thumping music coming from a neigbouring property that echoed till 3.30am.

  • Couple

    Room was clean and spacious and had good kitchen facilities. Walking distance to the Skyline and to Rainbow Springs, where there is an excellent Kiwi exhibit and rehabilitation center.

  • Group of friends

    Proximity to our point of interest; I.E. Skyline gondola, Agrodome, city lake

    Can't maintain desired room temperature esp at night. You have to turn on the heater every 1.5 h, otherwise it's a chilly night during winter time.

  • Older travelers

    The new owner was very friendly and helpful and approachable. The place was nice and quiet

    I feel the price was quite high but it met our needs and we slept well
