The staff are amazing! They know Rotarua realky well and all of the best places to see and adventurous things to do. They were really helpful at rearranging our white water rafting before the river closed.

Great staff! Great location!
Wonderful place to stay in Rotorua. Let me start with the staff: so incredibly friendly and helpful. They get your day off to a great start with their enthusiasm. Location is a few minute walk from town and plenty of cafes and restaurants. As an added bonus, they even have mineral pools on-site (which I have to admit I didn't try, but where do you find a hotel like that).
