Our Location

If you are coming into town from Auckland/Hamilton on SH5 along Fairy Springs Road you need to turn right into Clayton Road when you get to the large traffic light junction (Fairy Springs/Lake Road junction). Approximately 3 kms along Clayton road you need to turn right into Mountain Road, then approx 1 km along you will see our sign for City Lights on your left.

We are situated approximately 8 minutes by car (6km) from the city centre yet are on the outskirts of town on the slopes of Mount Ngongotaha. Our location affords us the most beautiful views of Rotorua and the surrounding countryside and we are so close to the mountain bush that we hear birdsong and very little else. Our peace and quiet is appreciated by our guests who are glad to be away from the bustle of town and the sulphur smells, yet close enough to it for attractions and restaurants for easy access.
