4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We stayed for three nights. The setup was ideal for a family, especially the two TV's, 3 GB of data and the playground. Plus, the owner was very accommodating with our requests and need for advice. Will definitely look to stay here again, and recommend to others.

We stayed at Arista for four nights and it was fantastic. Very spacious and the 3gb free wifi was the icing on the cake (teenage kids were thrilled). The only negative was that one of the single beds was incredibly hard and could not be slept on. ... but this didn't matter as we were a family of four in... More

We were really delighted with this motel. The greeting by the owner was warm and friendly, and the property was the same. The owner and staff offered advice, and discount vouchers. The room space was Huge compared to most, with a lovely mezzanine to sleep. The hot water spa bath was divine after a long day. We were particularly happy... More

We booked a huge test story place for just two of us. It had a private spa. Great deal. Great location staff awesome. Had a kitchen. What else are you waiting for ? Have a chat w the owners and read their story. It's a great one. We loved it here and would recommend to anyone.

This motel lives up to its good reviews. The rooms are very spacious, well appointed and comfortable. There is plenty of room in the mezzanine bed area and the lounge area is huge. The bed and lounge furniture are very comfortable, which is not always the case with some motels when the main furniture in the living area is a... More

The owner is a fantastic person that we are so touched by his life story. The room is good , and the space is so open and comfortable. But We stayed at room 14, the one is very near the road and the noise from cars were so loud that I cannot sleep all night.

Hands down the best place to stay in Rotorua. Mike is great to deal with and always ensures that you have all you need and are enjoying your stay. Wouldn't stay anywhere else. We stayed with a large group of 10 people. Across two rooms we fit easily.

Arista was the best accommodation on our 4-week-roundtrip in NZL. Annemarie and Mike were the nicest hosts and most helpful people we`ve met. We got a lot of ideas for the rotorua area and for dining (especially the last minute reservation at the ´urbano bistro`). Thank you Annemarie and Mike Rosi and Michael from Frankfurt.
