Fair 4.0
No hot water for the spa, was Luke warm, disappointed as we chose the room for the spa. Heater only in main living area not in bedroom. Glad we brought our own heater as is was -1 degrees that night! Facilities a bit old.

Great place, loved the bubble bath out in our private courtyard. Great price for an affordable family weekend away. Would have liked a in-ground pool for the kids, but just getting picky.
Jeremy, nz2 night family trip
Very good 8.0
Simple spacious motel room with private jacuzzi
Simple spacious motel room with shower room and an outside private jacuzzi. Good amenities, feels like the owners have tried to provide everything you would need for your comfort and stay. The room design with stark decoration and linoleum floor actually feels more like a private hospital room or assisted living apartment. Its a walkable distance (1 mile) to the town but is really designed for those with transport.

Very comfortable and clean
Comfortable apartment. Included separate washer and dryer (bonus) and full kitchen. Nice pool just steps away.

Good room good price
It was a nice room right next to Whakarewarewa and Redwoods. However, a bit far from restaurants. It is a lovely area, but we got woken up by a truck passing by in the morning (it is located off a state highway).
