“Perfect for families with small children”
Reviewed November 21, 2012 NEW
We stayed for 2 nights in September 2012. I was a bit put off when we arrived as the property is located on the side of a large roundabout. However, although our room was right on the corner, the traffic died down quite early and was reasonably quiet. We booked online and experienced no problems with the booking.
The children (3 & 7) loved both the pools and the wishing well. They were also very excited by the treasure hunt that they were given when we checked in. It was fairly difficult but, with some assistance from Ron, they managed to complete the hunt and they certainly enjoyed their prize!
Both Ron and Mairi were very knowledgable about the area and were able to direct us to appropriate food outlets (gluten free otions) and attractions. Our 2 bedroom unit was very clean, cosy and well appointed. We did need to turn off the heating as the unit got quite hot. I would certainly recommend this accommodation to anyone looking for a convenient, well priced motel that is suitable for children.

“Excellent comfortable stay”

We were greeted by Ron our host. I know sometimes motel operators call themselves a host but are really an owner/manager. Ron made us feel like we had come to stay at his home. He gave us great information on places to see (including discount coupons) and restaurants and then gave us his tour of the room and facilities, including the BBQ area, the 38 degree Celsius pool and the 41 degree Celsius mineral hot springs pool. Our room included all we needed to be very comfortable and have breakfast in our kitchen area and dinner as well on our patio after barbecuing local meat products. Is this a 5 star hotel with a bar and dining room-no. But as far as I am concerned it is a 5 star place to stay for friendliness, comfort and real quality for a reasonable price. Thanks Ron

“Wonderful four day stay”

We took our 95 year old Dad to Malfroy as he wanted somewhere with a thermal pool. What a lovely place. Great hosts, good accommodation, lovely property with well kept gardens which made a lovely place to sit after a day sightseeing. Our unit was clean and well equiped. Bedding comfortable. Staff very freindly and unit supplied with fresh towels and cleaned each day.Ron was about each day to check if we needed anything and checking we were comfortable in our unit. Very handy to shopping complex. We certainly would recommend staying at this property and we certainly would return if staying in Rotorua. When you book from an internet sight you wonder if the property is as good as it looks on the websight. Yes this one is.
Room Tip: Ask the proprietor he ceretainly looks after his guests requests
