Fair 4.0
Pohutu Lodge Rotorua
The service at the front desk was good and the staff were very friendly. The bedroom itself was okay but the bathroom and toilet was stained and dirty. Unfortunately because of that I would not stay there again.

Good 6.0
OK value for money but not outstanding
The motel room was large and the bed fine. The upstairs room was large but the steps to get included a narrow landing. The car parking was very tight. If there had been a couple of twin cabs we would have been in trouble. The room was not air conditioned and quite hot on the February night we stayed there.Overall the motel is a bit tired but ok value for money.

Pleasant stay
Adequate for our needs considering the good price. Very near the geyser, walking distance to Maori village. Town centre is a short drive away. Some stains and a bit of paint peeling off, but otherwise clean. Kids enjoyed the free Netflix though WiFi was not too consistent.

Nice greeting, very very tired and old , could do with a big paint job , jandles found under the beds , ( not ours ) old style heating , bathroom tired and old , cracks in the walls , we stayed in unit 8 , so upstairs downstairs. Shame really if it was clean and updated it would be nice . Until it’s redone I wouldn’t recommend it.

would stay here again
We only stayed one night, and were upgraded to a bigger unit. Compfy couches in the lounge, good beds, and a nice decor made the stay pleasent.

Pohutu Lodge Stay
We enjoyed a nice stay at the Lodge ,just the uncertainty of of the level of service regarding the bed making , we were not sure whether the beds would be made as most venues did, Overall a good stay . we think the company we booked the sites we stayed at should make it clear what the services are .
