    Not worth the priceThe apartment is beside the lake with beautiful view, but there are only three parking spots in front of the apartment and I always found it was full and I will need to find parking along the road. In the mean time, the room is very small without air-conditioner, luckily it was not that cold when I travel. They have provided heat blanket but I do not dare to use without any instructions. The shower room is big enough but no doors, so the water will come out after showering. Breakfast were provided but the bread is frozen and not delicious so I only drink some milk with cereal. Comparing the other such apartments, I feel it it not really worth the price but frankly speaking, it is up to acceptable level of living.

    The lakeview is the only good point It is someone's house without reception so you have to share living room with guests of other two rooms. Lakeview is the only reason I recommend this 'hotel'.

    Just a loud wow!!!!!! =)”

    we planned originally to stay only one night in Rotorua, but this place was so well located and so quite. No one to bother you, that we decided to stay another day. It was way more than what we though. We stayed in the deluxe queen room and loved it, the only detail was that the place was under refurbishment so some things were not working properly but the place itself was so enchanting, quiet and well locate that it didnt affect our stay at all. When we go back well be looking forward to stay again with you guys, thank you for making it so enjoyable. Oh and the lady that does the cleaning (I can't recall her name) was so lovely and polite and friendly. Thank you =)

    This is not a true B&B”

    cheap accommodation close to city centre

    This is not a true B&B as breakfast was not provided and staff were not located on the premises. Breakfast consisted of supplying a toaster, jug, milk team and coffee and 1litre of juice. Apart from that two cups and two wine glasses. needed to have at least spoons and a knife and plate supplied.

    The large kitchen & dining area

    We were booked into a Standard King room but asked to be moved as there was no fridge. We were given a Double room with ensuite with use of the kitchen, fridge, lounge, dining,TV, gas heater and breakfast provided. Our second day was windy, cold & raining but we stayed indoors allday as the facilities were fantastic. Don't be put off by the outside because the accommodations more than makes up for it.

    シーズンオフ・・・

    宿に到着すると誰もおらず「○○○」に電話してくださいとの案内があるのみでした。指示された暗証番号で自ら入り滞在するシステムでした。たまたま携帯を持っており使用できましたが、事前に分かってないとびっくりするかもしれません。 1Fと2Fで入口が分かれており、2Fはどうなっているかわかりませんでしたが、1Fには部屋が3部屋あり大きなリビングがあり自由に使えます。滞在者が少なかったので、ほぼ自由に使うことができたのでよかったです。ツインの部屋は非常に狭かったです。
