      • Family with children

        Owners were very helpful. The rooms are quite complete with small fridge and small kitchenette, ideal for having breakfast and quick meals. The small thermal pool is a good place to relax. The hotel is in an excelent location close to restaurants, the lake and several of the tourist attractions.

        Some of the comforters on the beds look old and could be changed. The shower enclosure could use a good clean.

      • Family with children

        It was easy to find and the hosts were really helpful and friendly

        We felt that the hotel was a bit too warm, however better to be too warm than too cold. We felt that the bathroom could have done with some attention and renovation

      • Family with children
        9.2

        Close to the city centre but far from the hustle and bustle. Very nice and helpful owner.Mineral pool and spa pool within steps away from rooms.

        Minor inconvenience in moving up lots of luggage if staying on the third floor.

      • Family with children
        8.8

        It was great to have the heated swimming pool right outside our door - we had it all to ourselves most of the time and the kids could jump straight in! Having a kitchen is always good with kids around. We also loved the closeness to the lakefront, playgrounds and the government gardens - it's nice to have places you can easily walk to.

      • Older travelers
        7.0

        The cleanliness & warmth in the rooms - it was lovely to always be warm.

        Only thing I can fault is the shower! Very low pressure & not much fun.

      • Family with children
        8.2

        Very hand location. Great family unit that fitted us all in. The pools were lovely to relax in.

      • Group of friends
        9.2

        Very good base for all things around Rotorua. Excellent quiet location and very close to CBD. Very friendly and welcoming.

      • Group of friends

        Spacious common room, lots of beds (3 in one room, double bed in the other room, 1 bed + sofa in common room). We were three colleagues attending a nearby conference together and had one space each, for less money than double bedrooms at our conference hotel. Location great, near the lakeside and walking distance to shops and sights. Clean bathroom and kitchen. Unit was right next to the hotel pool (it would be ideal if you were a family). One of us used and enjoyed the hot spa pools.

        If the chatter of children playing in the pool near your room disturbs you, ask for a unit away from the pool.

        Mineral and spa pools were fabulous...great way to relax after a day's sightseeing. Great large unit with plenty of beds and space for everyone

      • Family with children
        9.2

        Great location, on a quiet street but very close to the Centre of Rotorua. Huge apartment for a family and would be an excellent base for visiting the area and its many attractions. The small spas with genuine mineral water were a real bonus.

        The stuff was very nice and it was good situated. The bed was good too.

        The bathroom was little bit old and the shower, well.. There was water...

      • Older travelers
        10.0

        The location of the hotel was in walking distance of the Rotorua Gardens and Musuem and in a quiet end of town. Also good location to walk to main street for shops and restaurants.

        The people managing the hotel were very friendly and helpful with ideas of tourist attractions in the area.

      • Older travelers
        8.2

        Front desk very helpful, friendly and knowledgeable.

        No elevator if you stay on the second level. No screen in the window, if you wish to open the window.

      • Older travelers
        7.0

        From the outside the hotel does not look very promising but the room we had was large and comfortable. The reception and staff were very helpful indeed. The hotel is conveniently situated for both the lake and the town. Overall good value for money and recommendable.

        The hotel does not look very promising from the outside. If you had not booked in advance you may not choose it. We found it comfotable, hospitable and good value.

      • Older travelers
        9.2

        The owners were very helpful , great location and had a great feeling about the place and would return in the future would recomend.
