  • Family with children

    Locality was great to my husband's cycle race (Rotorua Flyer). Our accommodation totally suited our family.

    Someone stole the plugs! But the manager rectified the problem promptly.

  • Single

Yes it is quit but for those wanting to chill .perfect. then have some carva relax some more. Would recomend to all ages . food is very good as well. Blue sea .and warm what else is there

  • Group of friends

    Great location, in proximity to the Puhutu Geyser and very friendly staff.

  • Group of friends

    The room was very clean and the staff (owner) was friendly and helpful regarding sight-seeing and travel planning.

    We had an unfortunate situation where some of the other guests were loud and unruly, making our stay less than pleasant.

  • Older travelers

    The staff went out of their way to please us and were very helpful in all questions and places to see. Felt very comfortable staying here with good facilities. Good that they had free internet.

  • Family with children

    can see the geysers from the room. Was able to go through a gate at the back to see them closer. The manager was very friendly, rearranged a trip for me at short notice. Repaired a broken toilet immediately after we reported it.

  • Older travelers

    Lovely big unit, staff couldn't have been friendlier or more helpful.

    Sleepless night.. Unfortunately there were many timber trucks lumbering past all night resulting in noise and vibrations that kept us awake. Downgraded Location and comfort because of this.

  • Couple

    Value for money, comfortable, great hosts, will definately be back

  • Older travelers

    The friendliness of the owners made us feel really welcome, the kitchen facilities handy and the bed very comfortable.

    A lack of air conditioning was a small problem.

  • Family with children

    The helpful and friendly staffs/owners who were always around and willing to help.

  • Couple

    Owners were amazing and the motel itself was beautiful

  • Family with children

    The owners of Pohutu Lodge went out of their way for us. Recommended sites to visit, took us to town and picked us up again in thier own car.

  • Older travelers

    Excellent service, hosts were very welcoming and friendly. Room was very good value for money in nice quiet surroundings with their own geyser in the backyard! Very clean and tidy.

    No problems at all

  • Single

    I was extremely impressed with the attention to detail. The rooms weren't "flashy" but had all that was needed for comfort and convenience, something that is often lacking in motels with plusher decor. It was spotlessly clean and the hosts couldn't do enough to help, with out being intrusive. I've travelled a lot solo, as a couple and as a family. Pohutu Lodge was one of the best all round and Shirley and Barry were fantastic. Thank you. Very reasinable price too.

  • Group of friends

    Good size, clean, provided the appropriate products and items inside the unit. Private outdoor area. Friendly "Owners".

    The shower was cold the first evening. Prefer one level. Thin walls.
