I stayed 2 nights at the Spa Lodge and I would definitely recommend it. Jo was incredibly nice and helpful with the different activities in Rotorua. The free Spa relaxes you after a long day of walk in Redwoods which by the way I highly...More

2am. Awake. I'd say wide awake, but that would mean I've had some decent sleep. I'm at the my-eyes-feel-as-if-they're-raccoon-eyes-being-held-open-with-matchsticks phase of "awake". Why am I awake at 2am? Very good question! Guiding a 3-day tour. Booked in for the night for a double room at...More

Your venomous opinion of the Spa Lodge is quite contrary to the experience of thousands of who have enjoyed our facilities and services. I can feel your pent-up frustration ----- must be hard to live on the paltry salary of a tourist guide, working for...More

Conveniently situated for access to town and Whakarewrewa Forest. Mountain bike friendly. Free natural hot spa, great after a hard day on the bike. Excellent inside outside flow with covered patio. Supermarkets, bars and restaurants close by. Limited off road parking.

About
Description
Welcome to the Spa Lodge, the best value budget accommodation facility for travellers in Rotorua. We are one of the original eco-friendly businesses in New Zealand: we pump geothermally heated water to heat up More tap water for showers and heat radiators in the whole facility. This is not only good for the environment but it also helps keep our costs, and consequently, our rates down (one of the lowest in Rotorua!). In addition, we offer up to 40% discount from the daily rates for longer stays!! We are the only hostel in Rotorua that offers a natural outdoor mineral hot spa on-site free for our guests. Nothing beats stargazing or moon-watching while immersed in a bubbling hot pool during a cold cloudless night! We have 25 rooms with 71 beds in various configurations, from singles, doubles, twins, quads, to 4-6 dorms (5-6 bunk beds)). We provide free linen, wifi, DVD rental, coffee and tea, great discounts for long-term stays, package tours and bookings for Mana bus and Naked bus. We also offer free luggage storage and use of a safety deposit box. We have 3 fully equipped kitchens, a TV/DVD room, and laundry facilities. We are just 8 minutes on foot from the bus station and 2 min away from Rotorua Central Mall. We are literally minutes away (on foot) from just about everything that matters in Rotorua! Although we are right in the middle of the city, we have an inner courtyard where our guests can enjoy the sun during cold spells and an outer courtyard where guests can chill off in the shade in warm weather. We have a barbeque for guests to use during those long summer days. Our greatest asset, however, is our friendly and helpful staff who do their best to keep our customers happy and make their stay most memorable. Less
