The owners are so friendly and helpful. The rooms are just like the pictures, new, modern and brilliantly presented. We will definitely be going back. The weekend was made very special by the excellent quality of rooms, and service.

We really are fortunate to have a lovely motel to share with people, and it is nice and close to the majority of attractions in our beautiful city.

We are happy that you enjoyed yourselves, and we look forward to hosting you again.

Had a lovely weekend away. Room really great. Very quiet. Clean and comfortable. Really enjoyed the spa in the room as weather limited what activities we could do. Staff very professional and nothing was a bother.

We had a great stay at Emerald Spa along with our friends for a fun family weekend away. Our room was very comfortable and the huge spa bath was a hit with our daughter... us too. Tim and Shelley were great hosts and were very helpful on recommending things to see and do in rotorua. We look forward to visiting again. Great hotel.

My partner and I were down for the weekend and I must say this place would have to be one of the best places we have stayed in over the years. The room was perfect! A bottle of bubbles on arrival went down a treat Which we enjoyed in the big spa bath at the end of our night. The hosts were fantastic and made us feel like we were at home. The breakfast was great they made and bought up to us. We would definitely recommend this place to others and we will no doubt be staying here again
Thanks for having us!

Thank you for your generous review.

We take great pleasure in creating great memories for our guests and it was a pleasure to host you.

We are so happy that you had a great time and that the breakfast was made to your liking. Our romance package has been a massive hit since we launched it, and it is great to see people loving us go that extra mile!

We can't wait to see you on your next trip!
