    Good for a Night only!
    I wouldn’t stay here if it was for more than a single night, there were only 3 TV channels and 2 were sport and the other was just whatever movie was going. Poor choice. There were a number of power plugs not working as well as some appliances, like hair fryer. The room itself was spacious and the bed very comfortable and our room was very accessible from the vehicle so great for bags. Overall I’d rate it 7 out of 10.

    great manager
    The manager was friendly and helpful when we had an issue with the oven at night which he was able to work around for us.

    Good roadtrip pit stop.
    We stayed here for two nights. Good location. Handy for town centre and restaurants. Little kitchen for self catering. Bath/Room clean. Bed and shower ok.

    Geothermal areas in Rotarua with geyser amazing and we also enjoyed the geothermal park at Waimangu. There are lots of restaurants about 10 minutes walk away. The laundrette is about a 5 minute walk but it’s a very busy road to get there . The lady in the laundrette was very helpful. Paths to walk by lake . I had a real job finding somewhere to recycle rubbish. There was a strong smell of sulphur near the motel
