Cosy Cottage Thermal Holiday Park Rotorua

Reviewed 19 August 2017

We stayed for one night at Cosy Cottage and found it was a pleasant place to stay. There are shared toilets, laundry, pool (available in Summer months only), thermal pools, the Hangi (steam oven) and the Rotorua Lake right at the edge of the cottages where you can dig your own hole in the sand to sit in the hot water.

Our room was clean and warm with heating and a small kitchenette area. The toilets were outside but were separate for males and females and adequate. The cottages are very close to the town centre and close to all the local attractions.

The thermal pools available were amazing. There was no one else in the pools when we used them and they are open until 10pm. We had a swim when we arrived and found it very relaxing. We also walked to the Rotorua Lake which was peaceful and gives you a great view.

We also went for another swim at night at 930pm. The pools are clean and emptied every day. Our bed was comfortable and we were very warm in our cottage.

Check out time was a little late at 830-10am. We would have liked to have checked out earlier which I'm sure you could request beforehand.

Overall a great place to stay! Quieter than the other motels we saw and in a nice location.

Room Tip: We selected the room for couples but it also had a bunk bed so could fit up to 4 people.

This place has everything and more! Unlimited hot geothermal showers, geothermal spa baths for ultimate relaxation. Excellent laundry facilities, even a hair dryer, iron and vacuum which were unique touches. The hosts were extremely friendly and are obviously very proud of their park and we could see why. The site even offers its own hot thermal pools behind where you can did a hole and create your own hot spa using the water of Lake Rotorua. Awesome!!

Great place to stay. Clean, comfortable and affordable. We've stayed twice recently in freshly refurbed rooms. Ideal for groups travelling together (we accomodated a small film crew and it was perfect for that). Really nice people too.

What a great little find. We were in a campervan, and it was cold so at this time of year would recommend an indoor option. There are three different temperature spas. We were lucky and spent an hour between them and were only joined by a couple of other people. Hire a spade and a short walk to the lakeshore and you can dig your own spa. All this included at a $21.50 per adult (powered camper-van pitch) the toilets and showers are spotless. There is a laundry, kitchen and TV lounge. There is an option to steam cook your food with the natural steam as well as two good size BBQs

We stayed here during the Lions Tour and the camp ground was full of supporters which was good. We stayed in our hired camper van and the powered pitch was flat. It was only a short walk to the shower block. Showers were ok. They have a hot spring pool, which is like a big jacuzzi but was very warm and relaxing. On arrival we were given information about what to see in the area. We didn't use other facilities at this camp ground as we were self-contained. The camp ground is an atmospheric 15 minute walk into town, past steaming drains, holes in the pavement and thermal pools in the park.
