Geothermal Mineral Pool - Your very own Rotorua spa accommodation!
We have one of the few remaining genuine, geothermal mineral pools in a Rotorua NZ accommodation property - one which is filled from our own geothermal re-injection bore.  The temperature of the pool is kept at 41°C, and many people find the minerals contained in the water are both therapeutic and soothing for muscular pains, arthritis and rheumatism - Healing Waters. Open 7x24 with free access for all our guests, with a 'Whispering Rule' after 8.30pm. 

Plunge Pool
Our geothermally heated outdoor plunge pool has the temperature set at 38°C in the winter - 32 to 34 in the summer months. It is the ideal size and depth for teaching a young child to swim; and is also open 7x24.  Great for looking at the stars before retiring.

Children's Play Area
Our secure play area has a substantial adventure set with a climbing tower, slide, trapeze / rings, firemans pole, and three sizes of swing - including a toddler swing. There is also a play house, a see saw, and seating for the parent / gaurdian.

Wireless Broadband
We provide a free wireless broadband service (unlimited) which generally extends across the property and into all of the Apartments at MALFROY motor lodge Rotorua Accommodation.

Guest BBQ
We provide a free gas-fired barbecue for our guests - one big enough for 2 families to cook together - along with the appropriate barbecue tools. The barbecue is located in the gazebo by the plunge pool, along with seating, a large table and lighting for those evening cook ups.

Laundry Service

We can provide access to our own laundry facilities before 9am or after the Motel laundry has been completed and before 6pm.  We charge $5 per load, which can include providing the soap powder.  There is a drying rack available over the deck in the courtyard area, or when the weather is inclement, we have a drying room which is guaranteed to dry your clothes overnight.  There is also a very good Laundromat service nearby -Tendercare. 

Secure Sports Equipment Storage
With so many people now bringing larger sports equipment to Rotorua NZ, we are providing free, secure storage for our guests. The storage is suitable for mountain bikes, ski's, and can even take a kayak.

Massage Shower/Spa
The property has Massage shower/Spa cabinets for two of our studio apartments, and also for our large Family Suite. They offer shower options as well as having a spa facility, and guests have been known to stay an extra night to enjoy them again.

We provide 10 SKY (satellite TV) channels and all free to air television channels are available in all of our Apartments. Each Apartment has a 32" LCD or LED TV and its own multi-zone DVD player.  The Family Suite has a 50" TV.

Video Library
There is a free collection of over 150 DVD's in the office.  The range is quite wide, with something for the littlies and toddlers, familiy movies, plus something for Mum and Dad - and a number of Classics that are worth watching again.  You check them out as being in good condition, and we check them back in.

Our gardens are often admired by our guests, as they are well stocked with a wide variety of plants, shrubs and trees. There is always something in flower somewhere, and the numerous palm trees add a semi-tropical dimension to the property.  The new patio area installed behind our Studios has been a great success.

Airport / Bus Pick-Up Service
This is a 'By Arrangement' service only, as we may not always be able to leave the Motel to collect you / drop you off.  We shall do what we can, but please do ask 48 hours prior to confirm this is available for your arrival / departure .   If we are not available we can introduce you to an economic service provider (Grumpy or Uncle Tim).
