This Hotel was great value for a family as there was two sleeping areas, 2 tvs, a mini kitchenette to cook for yourself with cooking facilities as well as an awesome private natural spring plunge bath located outdoors attached to your room for your own use. I used the plunge pool every night under the stars to relax my weary... More

The Arista of Rotorua is a Fantastic place to stay! We stayed for 3 nights (20th to 22nd December) and found the place very relaxing and comfortable. The decor is very modern, and we had our own private spa bath. There were free DVD's available from the reception which kept the kids entertained in the early evening. We received a... More

The staff was very friendly, the rooms clean and nicely decorated. We had the room with a loft - it was very spacious. The room was equipped with a DVD player and a great selection of free movies to borrow. Also had free wifi. I would definitely stay here again.

Our stay at Arista was absolutely amazing. We had 2 energetic kids with us and we loved the spacious 2-story room. There's a double bed on the 1st floor and 2 singles and another double bed on the 2nd floor. The best surprise was the jacuzzi in the back yard! Rooms are clean and our hosts, Annemarie and Mike, made... More

When I first came to Arista, I thought the rooms were going to be quite small. How wrong I was! My family got a 2 storey room. There was a jacuzzi in the balcony of our room! There were more then enough beds for my family. The toilets were cleaner then I expected. The beds were really soft and comfortable.... More

planning our first ever trip to North Island was an exiting experience but quite daunting when we looked at many web sites for accommodation in Rotorua. Having selected Arista and stayed at such a welcoming motel we just felt we had to tell others. Annemarie and Mike could not have made our stay any more enjoyable and the accommodation -... More

Hi Barry, Thank you so much for your lovely review, we know how difficult it is choosing accomodation when you have so many choices here in Rotorua. All I can say is, if you dont want a standard motel room, if you want space to spread out and relax, if you want a decent sized kitchen, decent beds and a... More
