Mike was an excellent host. Spa, parking, bathrooms, room, kitchenette and over all maintenance were on point. Rooms were just as shown in the image. Centre of the city too. Midnight countdown was accessible.

Hi there Tanveesethia, Wow thanks for mentioning me! We all do our best to give you great advise and guidance. We are certainly in a great location and I think we have a pretty awesome product offering! Your right Countdown (Supermarket) is only just down the road and is a great convenience to our guests. Our rooms range from 62²m to 92²m making them probably the largest of their kind in Rotorua, that's part of the reason why they are so popular. Thanks Again, we really appreciate your review. Regards Mike.

Hi VarnaM5, Thanks very much for your wonderful review. You pretty much nailed who we are. We are a great caring team who do their best to understand our guests and give them a great time. Borris is becoming famous ..... he now has a handful of reviews, but he doesn't do much work but certainly entertains our guests. Remember when coming back book direct via our website and utilise the "Deal of the day code". I'm so glad you experience our wonderful customer interaction we think that's really important. Thanks again for your awesome review. Regards Mike.

I would definitely recommend this motel if you are visiting Rotorua. We stayed there recently and were very impressed with our stay there. From the warm friendly welcome when we arrived, the spacious 2 storey apartment, the cleanliness, to the small touches such as fresh milk

Hi Paul, Thanks very much for writing a review on us. I'm glad you felt like you got great value. We strongly believe that given the size of our massive rooms and how cool they are we think its great value for money when you break it down to per square meter. We are not 5 star and don't pretend to be but we think we are pretty good! If you need a great room in Rotorua to explore from then we are certainly a great option. Our team also have great local knowledge to give that extra tip or two. Thanks again for your review. Regards Mike.

Hi there thanks very much for your review. You and your flight crew were a lovely bunch of young people. That’s one thing we are good at is even if you are here for one day we will take our time to listen to your interests and then make a plan to maximise your time here. I’m so glad you had a great time. In Rotorua there is so much to do here a great time frame is 3 – 4 days! Thanks again. Mike.

Hi there Vanessa, Sorry we don't do a cooked breakfast, we are just a little motel along Fenton street and don't have a breakfast room. It looks like you are trying to work out the room configurations from a OTA (On line travel) site. If you go to our website it is much easier to work out from there every thing is clear and we have a great website. The family spring fling deal (with large rooms) comes with a box of corn flakes, loaf of bread, milk, 1 ltr juice and some small butters and jams etc. Thanks for your inquiry.
