The moment we arrived we were made to feel very welcome. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. The unit we stayed in was clean and tidy. And the free wifi and DVDs were an added bonus. Would I recommend this motel? Most definitely.

We were so happy we'd chosen to stay at Arista in Rotorua. We came from a cold rented house in the central plateau to this spacious, warm, and friendly Motel. Happy Times. We traveled with 3 young boys so the spacious mezzanine floor with it's own TV was brilliant, the kids loved playing up there and watching the disney channel.... More

Excellent location and accommodation for our family of five. The room was neat and tidy and a great size for us all to have our own space. It was warm and extremely well serviced. We all enjoyed the spa, especially the kids. Very friendly owners who were very helpful.

WOW! We just loved Arista of Rotorua. From the moment we arrived, we were warmly welcomed and the warmth extended to our unit which was just sooo toasty. The space was fantastic with 2-3 kids staying too. The bonus is the private pool, such a hit with the kids. I met Mike & Morgan and they just can't do enough... More

Stayed here on Sunday night, for a stop over in Rotorua. I wanted to stay here as they have private hot tubs in the rooms and it was perfect! Totally recommend saying here to anyone that just wants to relax in their own private spa, sleep in a comfy bed, with a good shower, free dvd hire which was nice... More

Booked this hotel after seeing many good reviews about it, and while I don't think that the place lived up to its great reviews, it was a reasonably clean, neat and warm place to stay. The rooms need a bit of updating, and the bathrooms could also do with a spruce up, but the room was clean, tidy, well serviced... More

Family group on tour of NZ. Morgan was great and gave us heaps of help, even got to park the brand new motor home in the owners place next door. Thanks for the great hospitality and room was warm and really nice.

From the moment we arrived to the moment we left Mike was so very helpful. We had the most amazing time largely due to the fact that Mike set us up with activities. The motel was perfect for us plenty of space and the spa was divine. Great hosts, great facilities would highly recommend to any family wanting great accommodation.

What a lovely Hotel and fabulous Hotel Manager, Greg. We arrived at the hotel without a great deal of local knowledge, Greg was forever on hand assisting us with sites to visit, specializing the sites to our family including two teenage girls. A wonderful experience, thank you Greg.
