The website oversells it and it wasn't what was expected. Also the "hotpool" was ice cold on a hot day so I never got a swim in

Nice Stay in Rotorua
Had a nice, comfortable stay at The Backyard Inn. It was convenient to the attractions in Rotorua as long as you have a rental car. Also, the geothermal pool was a cool feature!
