Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The staff were helpful and friendly and gave us a quiet room, as requested. The room was clean and bed was super comfortable. Good sized room and good selection of kitchen utensils. Quiet location, handy, but off the main road. Would recommend.

Great comfy rooms with a good kitchen. The pool is lovely and warm. We chose a room without a spa but the ones for us to use were nice and hot and large. Tristen always looks after us well. There is a nice bike wash and bike storage available. It is easy to ride to the forest.

It was an awesome stay. Really clean and tidy and had excellent service. Nice and quiet and has a great location. I would stay again when visiting for sure. The In-room spas were a real bonus and the outside pool was just an added bonus. Rooms were spacious and the bed was really comfortable

Another return visit to this friendly, hospitable Motel - we love it here. Well-appointed rooms with everything you need - comfy beds, comfy rocking recliners, well-equipped kitchen. Lovely clean and fresh bathrooms with good soap etc. The spa pool is an added delight and great for a soak after a long day exploring Rotorua. The hosts are SO helpful and friendly - nothing is too much trouble, they know all the local info and go the extra mile to help. We'll be back!!

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay here, the rooms were spacious (we stayed in the 2 bedroom apartment), the beds were comfy and the complimentary ground coffee was delicious! I loved the pool and the spa pools and the location was great for getting to Te Puia and the Redwoods.

We were in town for Tarawera Ultramarathon so we needed somewhere great for our recovery. As soon as we walked into the unit I knew we had made the right choice. From the recliners through on to the hot tub off the bedroom it was superb. Really comfy bed, full kitchen and decent sized fridge/freezer. The only negative was no air conditioning and it did get warm at times.

Best ever customer service from Tristan. We loved our stay. The thermal spa in our room was just what we needed after competing in a long run event in the area. The pool was also a beautiful temperature to relax in. Especially loved the ground coffee and fresh milk provided. Ony possible improvement would be to add fans/air conditioning to the rooms but this would definitely not stop us from coming back.
