Family & Group Accommodation Facilities

MALFROY motor lodge Rotorua NZ accommodation is ideally located for a family or a group wanting to make the most of their visit to Rotorua and the central part of the North Island; known as Central Park.  Taupo, Tauranga, Hamilton, Hobbiton, and Whangarei are all within a 90 minute drive - making MALFROY Rotorua an ideal base for Tourists.

Our larger apartments are well set up providing a full kitchen with a free standing oven, extractor fan, microwave, fridge with small freezer, pots, pans, bowls, kitchen equipment, and cutlery, crockery and glassware for 6 people.  They are great in the cooler months too, as they are all centrally heated by our own geo-thermal bore – which is working 7 x 24 x 365 to bring hot water up from 165 metres down.  We also provide 2 fans per apartment.

Our 2 Bedroom Apartments are set around our courtyard area, which in summer is quite a sun trap.  All apartments have outside table and chairs, and in the evenings the parents can sit, relax and get to know each other – over a glass of something cold shaded by our fantastic Indian Bean Tree.

For families of younger children, we also have a secure play area over by the office that comes with a climbing tower, fireman’s pole, slide, swings, and a play house.  Young at heart adults can have a swing too if they wish.  We also have a Treasure Hunt that is great fun.

Our genuine Geo-thermal Mineral Pool is kept at 41 degrees all year around, and most find it very therapeutic for aching joints, weary backs, knee / hip replacements, rheumatism, arthritis etc.  It is excellent for a soak after a day walking around Rotorua or the geo-thermal valleys and geysers – and can help you to have the best night’s sleep for a while.  Even as long ago as the 1800’s people came from all over the world to experience the wonderful ‘Healing Waters’ of Rotorua - and that is what we have at MALFROY. 

Our Plunge Pool is kept at 33 degrees in summer and gradually increases up to 38 degrees in the winter – when people sit there in the rain with smiles on their faces!  It is a great meeting place for our guests from around the world, and is also a great pool for teaching the younger children how to swim.  In our Gazebo we have a large, modern, 6 burner gas barbecue, and we provide the tools too.  Once the garden lights are on you can turn the Gazebo light on, allowing delicious evening meals to be cooked here. 

At a local level MALFROY Rotorua NZ is a short walk from Kuirau Park where you and your family can see bubbling water, splashing mud, and lots of steam coming out of the ground – all for free.  The park also has a small lake, a safe children’s play area, and has the room for older children to run around and play touch rugby, football, or cricket.  On the other side of the park you will find Ohinemutu village with its beautiful church by the lake, St Faiths, and after visiting the village you can then stroll back through the town for a coffee, before returning to MALFROY.  

MALFROY Rotorua accommodation is just a 3 minute walk from the main Shopping Mall where there is a good range of shops available, including a Countdown supermarket, Farmers, Rebel Sports, Warehouse, Briscoe’s, Post Office etc.  On the other side of the Mall is the Town Centre itself where you will find a wide range of speciality stores, restaurants, pubs, and a number of excellent Cafes serving good food at reasonable prices – as well as fine dining and a number of family friendly establishments. 

Being centrally located MALFROY is very conveniently positioned for trips to any of the major attractions and geysers, including Whakarewarewa (we can teach you how to say this properly) or Te Puia, Wai-O-Tapu, Waimangu, Hells Gate etc.  We are also only a few minutes’ drive from horse riding, tennis courts, indoor swimming pool, 3 golf courses, and of course, some of the worlds VERY BEST mountain biking and White Water Rafting.

Remember, you can see (old) geezers everywhere in the world, but you can only see geysers (prounounced guy zers) in and around Rotorua NZ!
