Hosts made you feel at home.
Definitely would recommend.
Perfect in every way
Maryanne and Karl are the perfect hosts, going out of their way to ensure guests have a comfortable and trouble-free stay. Their concern for guests’ welfare is high on their list of priorities. They are extremely helpful and knowledgeable and are more than happy to help in any way possible. The accommodation is immaculate and a perfect base to explore Rotorua and the surrounding area.
Great for short stays
Very friendly welcome and helpful hosts.
We really enjoyed returning to 'Thistle Do' and seeing Maryanne and Karl again. The accommodation is very handy to everything. The lake is just a very pleasant walk away. Our favorite cafe (Cafe Baroco) was just a five minute drive. We enjoyed a dinner and two breakfasts there and excellent coffee!
Very comfy small studio that is quite adequate for short stays.
Lovely caring hosts. Quiet and peaceful location, with a beautiful short walk to the lake.
Small but perfectly formed, with the loveliest owners.
Thistle Do Retreat is exactly as it looks in the photos. It is compact but is comfortable and was spotlessly clean, especially the bathroom.
The owners are the most lovely couple and we were very warmly welcomed and made to feel special guests. They kindly allowed us use of their lockable garage, which was much appreciated for our bikes. Undercover parking provided for our car.
We felt safe and told to knock on their door should we need anything.
The kitchenette is more of a well equipped kitchen cupboard, including microwave, kettle & toaster, with a fridge underneath a small worktop. Everything was in excellent order, and with some lovely treats left by the owners. Used crockery is washed by the owners and returned.
The window has a flyscreen (yes!) and a fan is provided.
A couple of minutes down the road is a bike track directly into the CBD - a short ride and very handy after Eat Street!
We think Thistle Do is good value for money, even without us making use of the river access through the property.
We stayed 3 nights and would happily stay again between 1 and 3 nights.
Recommended for 1-2 guests who want to be out and about enjoying Rotorua rather than sitting in their accomodation all day.
