Just stayed one night. Room was spacious and kitchenette was well furnished. Having a jetted tub in the room was a surprise but didn't get a chance to use it.

The location is great and the lighting outside, a bit dim inside. Walls are thin, next door did not shut up until I banged on the wall at midnight. No Air Conditioning so real hot in the rooms at present. and the bed is very hard.

Very good 8.0
Good-sized, clean rooms: excellent bathroom; no wi-fi problems; situated in a quiet area close to Whakarewarewa. The staff were friendly & helpful. On arrival, we discovered they'd booked #104 for us. But, since my partner & sister-in-law are Chinese, we appreciated that there was no problem giving us a same-sized suite with a better number.

I paid for a unit with a spa bath but it was turned off so I was unable to use by 9.30pm.
