The room suited us well & was nice & warm , the bed was very comfortable & we did enjoy the Spa pool. We did not notice the main road traffic noise
No comment here
Very helpful staff, enjoyed the thermal spa , clean and comfortable and the heating is great afterall it was only 4 degrees sunday morning.thanks for an enjoyable stay. We swapped the studio spa suite with our daughter so the grandson could go to bed in another room and we all enjoyed each others company in the front room
clean tidy unit / close to lake and thermal areas
The ground floor family unit was very comfortable and we loved the mineral spa bath.
The motel staff couldn't have been more helpful and friendly. The room was spacious and clean with own spa pool.
Thought that the individual Spa was excellent
Quiet location, close to the lake and a nice walk into town. Also, very friendly and obliging staff.
The beds were very good and the staff member was very helpful
The room was dirty, the spa was cracked and broken, all the windows had not been cleaned and a long time. for the price we paid it was not worth it. for 8 dollars more we found a better hotel across the street which was great (oasis resort) i would higly recomend!!
very relax at spa
location, the spa and the room was ok. experenice, scenery etc
it said you could buy items at the main desk. i wanted toothpaste none there and went to mobil none there either.
The natural spring water spa was excellent and the beds were very comfortable
I didnt like the state of the room. I walked in there and there were ciggerite buts around the place, there were small stains on the bed linen and there was rubbish behind the bedside table
Friendly staff in reception. Convienient locvation for us
We found the decor very old and worn. (quite disappointing. Could not turn of spa taps fully. Handles fell off and tap lose. ( held in by bent nails) Couch in main area thread bare.
Karaka Tree Motel is quiet. Our unit was far enough away from the road not to hear any vehicle noise. The spa was excellent.
There were a couple of lights that didn't work, and we informed the staff about this.
I liked the friendly staff and the location was great.
Upgraded as there was extra room, got a great room, very clean and tidy and great value - thanks
