Escape to Rotorua, and the lovely Thistle Do Retreat. This self-contained annex with separate entrance is all yours, with friendly hosts available at the main house next door if you have any needs during your stay.
This location could not be better for those out to sample all the attractions and adventures of Rotorua, or for people travelling for work. Situated on the banks of the Waiowhiro stream you are just two minutes’ walk to Lake Rotorua – a great spot for trout fishing, kayaking, swimming or paddleboarding.
Hop on your bike, or in the car, and you can be at the Skyline Skyrides, Wine tasting or Luging. Also nearby are the Mitai Maori experience, Rainbow and Fairy Springs Wildlife Centre, Agroventures and the Zorb. Everything is within a short drive - if you can drag yourself away from the lakefront!
Thistle Do has been furnished with great attention to detail, with a high-quality mattress, linens, tv, dining/work station and a small well equipped kitchenette. Everything has been provided to ensure your comfort. A secluded spot in the beautiful garden is all set up for you to relax with a glass of wine and a good book. All the amenities of a first-class motel, but with the added appeal of warmth, charm and an unbeatable location.
Free unlimited Wi-Fi and off street parking. Boat parking and a secure area for bikes available on request.
