About Rotorua Hideaway Lodge

Less than five minutes' drive from the Mitai Maori Village and the Rainbow Springs Nature Park, Rotorua Hideaway Lodge offers pet-friendly self-catering cottages with free parking.

The studio, one-bedroom, and two-bedroom units each feature a modern en-suite bathroom and well-equipped kitchenette, as well as a private balcony with a leafy view. Double-glazed windows, heaters, and electric blankets keep guests warm during the cooler months.

The expansive children's playground on site includes two tree huts, a zip-line, and many fun climbing structures. The wide open lawns are ideal for team sports, while the pretty gardens offer plenty of quiet places to sit. Barbecue and picnic facilities are also available on site.

Hungry travellers can drive to Rotorua's famous "Eat Street" in about ten minutes, or enjoy a birds-eye view of the city over a romantic dinner at Stratosfare, a 15-minute drive.

The Rotorua Museum, Government Gardens, and lovely Kuirau Park are within seven kilometres of the Rotorua Hideaway Lodge. The Agrodome is a five-minute drive.

Positive Reviews

Fun for the whole family

Travellers rave about the four acres of grounds surrounding the cottage-style motel rooms. Young guests love the playground, which is widely described as very large and packed with fun, safe, and well-maintained equipment. Supervising adults appreciate that the play area is fenced and well maintained. Four-legged family members appreciate the wide open spaces for exercise, and the farm animals on site are also very popular, particularly the free range chickens.

Clean, cosy rooms with all the basics

Guests generally describe the suites as modestly decorated but very clean and comfortable, furnished with all the necessities for self-catering and kept in good working order. The private balconies are an especially appreciated feature.

Kind and helpful owners

The owners of the property are widely described as friendly, helpful, and accommodating, eager to share their knowledge of Rotorua with new visitors. Young families often comment that the owners are very kind and welcoming to children, and will invite them to help care for their animals. Being invited to feed the chickens and help collect eggs is a highlight for many little guests.

Negative Reviews

A hidden gem

Travellers have noted that the lighting and signage at the entrance might be improved, as the motel can be difficult to spot at night.
