We stayed during the Labour weekend together with friends. We booked 3 rooms in total. Nothing special about the room. When we came in the gas heater was already on, could not turn it off. We informed the lady at the reception about the gas heater before we went out to buy dinner and it was already turned off when... More

Had to stay here as I hadn't booked anything decent and Rotorua had filled up for Labour Weekend. Place was clean, just dated, tv at roof height, shower had low water pressure, no ice. Door lock was a bit dodgy and lots of street noise. They charged my card as soon as I arrived, always a bad sign. Only charged... More

We booked through Agoda good value. Stayed three nights. We complained about the double bed so they went an brought an new one. Can not ask for better value. Good value with breakfast included. Good pools both natural and outside. This motel is not new but kept clean and tidy.

I recently stayed for 5 nights with my daughter and granddaughter. The studio was very comfortable with a double and single bed. The fan was a great asset as we used it throughout the night due the hot weather we were experiencing. The swimming pool in front of the motel was also fabulous after a long hot day at kapa... More

We stayed here for 3 nights. The location was easy to find and close(ish) to shops. Bonus wifi was good value - didn't know about this until we turned up. The breakfast had lots of variety - a help yourself thing - where everything was laid out. Toast, fruit, jam, tea, coffee, cereal etc. The bed was comfy and the... More

We were looking for a place that was centrally located and low-priced. A complimentary buffet and complimentary WiFi were added bonuses; the continental buffet, while basic, was more than adequate. The WiFi was sufficient for checking e-mails, which is what we needed. The location was terrific as well, within walking distance of the city centre and Central Mall. The other... More

I booked this motel based on overall reviews from trip advisor. I stayed for 3 nights and wasnt disappointed. The place is clean, quiet and about 2 minutes walk to the shops. The hosts are both accomodating and easy to talk to. I will book this motel again whenever I visit Rotorua.

This was our "cheapie" for the trip being half the price of some of our other stays! It was really good value and scrupulously clean - and we got to practice our French!!! The motel is old but it is more that suitable and we would stay there again without a second thought!. The on-site thermal pools were a bonus... More

Context: We wanted an inexpensive weekend in Rotorua (mountain biking), with plans for two nights in a motel that cost less than $90/night but that would cater to couples/families rather than backpackers. We used Wotif to identify potential candidates in our desired price range. And then we searched the reviews in trip advisor to find the one that had the... More

After reading the previous comments on Tripadvisor I am left wondering whether it is the same motel! There was no greeting on our arrival and no farewell or thank you for staying when we left! This is very rude to paying customers. The motel is advertised as French decorated and furnished, but this is far from true with nothing remotely... More
