Booked 2 bedroom suite but got family room which was disappointing, I didn't like the photos of that room online and even more in person. Weird energy / vibe soon as we walked in.No stovetop or oven which is why I booked the 2 bedroom suite in the first place so could cook for my kids as it was noted in the room facilities. The floor creaked from bathroom to kitchen when walked on. At night it just creaked by itself. Saw weird things in the bathroom mirrors. It was the worst at night - always heard noises around the room and footsteps on the stairs and upstairs when no one was there. Always felt like people were in the room with us or around us. Our kids randomly sat up sleeping while they were sleeping which they never do. Went out at night to avoid sleeping early in the room. Stayed out all day & up late to get so tired so we could sleep through without waking. Our kids were too scared to sleep upstairs so we all slept in lounge. Our last night partner sat up & watched over us. All of us were seeing and hearing strange things that freaked us out. I wanted to make a complaint as soon as we arrived but my partner didn't want to cause a fuss since staff were so nice. It was just creepy and didn't like the energy and couldn't wait to get out of the room. Packed up night before. The place itself is nice and the staff were lovely. Pohutu Geyser at the back was cool. Might stay again but in another room. Too many creepy things were happening that we couldn't understand or explain

Couldn’t fault it and will defiantly stay again if back in the area. I’d say slightly out of town so will need to drive in if you wanted it but plenty enough in the motel room to have a night in. Central to everything. Brilliant

The service at the front desk was good and the staff were very friendly. The bedroom itself was okay but the bathroom and toilet was stained and dirty. Unfortunately because of that I would not stay there again.
Shane, za1 night trip
Good 6.0
OK value for money but not outstanding
The motel room was large and the bed fine. The upstairs room was large but the steps to get included a narrow landing. The car parking was very tight. If there had been a couple of twin cabs we would have been in trouble. The room was not air conditioned and quite hot on the February night we stayed there.Overall the motel is a bit tired but ok value for money.

Pleasant stay
Adequate for our needs considering the good price. Very near the geyser, walking distance to Maori village. Town centre is a short drive away. Some stains and a bit of paint peeling off, but otherwise clean. Kids enjoyed the free Netflix though WiFi was not too consistent.

Pohutu Lodge Stay
We enjoyed a nice stay at the Lodge ,just the uncertainty of of the level of service regarding the bed making , we were not sure whether the beds would be made as most venues did, Overall a good stay . we think the company we booked the sites we stayed at should make it clear what the services are .
