Hot pools

Although not allowed to extract the mineral waters from the ground anymore, the motel does still provide, free of charge, two hot pools. These are filled with clean town water (which comes from springs by the way), heated, filtered and chlorinated at a delicious 40 degrees Celsius. Guests are free to bathe when they are available between 8am & 8pm.


Rotorua Golf Course (Arikikapakapa)

This wonderful geothermal golf course is a par 70 which plays harder than you think it will. Hot water lakes and streams, bubbling mud pots, undulating pumice fairways, and some quite stunning vistas make this links a real treat. The first tee is directly opposite the motel ,the clubhouse and pro shop are also very close.


Wild Bean Cafe

Immediately adjacent to the motel is a Wild Bean cafe. This is heavily used by the motel’s guests, as is the convenience store within the service station. Its existence greatly improves the amenities of this motel.


Bubbling mud and Te Puia

If you take a short stroll along the road, and cross over it once at Te Puia’s overspill car park, you will find a large hot water lake with plenty of bubbling mud. Of course we recommend a visit to Te Puia if you wish to get up close with the two geysers, and experience Maori culture by seeing a show and the carving school.


Whakarewarewa Maori Thermal Village

A shorter stroll will find you at the thermal village, which is a fascinating blend of Maori culture and geothermal activity. A small community do live there among the steaming and bubbling vents and pots, and you must try the sweet corn cooked in that very steam.


Mountain Biking

The trails at Whakarewarewa are just a short drive or ride away. The facilities there are being developed all the time and include toilets, bike hire, and refreshments. The motel offers safe storage and cleaning facilities for it’s guests, who wish to use these world class trails.
