Spacious, warm, clean, comfy, friendly and a great location. These are just a few words that describe our recent stay at Arista of Rotorua. On entering our 2 level Family Studio Apartment, we were greeted with that yummy Hotel smell that was maintained throughout our entire stay. Our 3 kids loved the pirate playground and the fact that we had... More

I can't thank the owners enough for our wonderful experience at Arista. Not only were they very helpful with tips and advice for around town but they were more than understanding when we mistakenly damaged the kitchen counter top. Not only did they make us feel better as we felt horrible but they found an extremely fair solution and reassured... More

We stayed in the beautiful 3 bedroom apartment last weekend, with my elderly Mother, brother, sister and brother-in-law. The apartment was amazing, perfect for us all to have our own rooms, plenty of space for us all, so roomy and immaculate. The owners/staff were so wonderful and helpful, even carrying our Mums bed downstairs so that she didn't have to... More

Our family of five stayed 3 nights passing through the North Island and it really lives up to every positive review. The loft rooms are big, warm and well-equipped with everything needed for a self-catering break. More importantly, the number of thoughtful touches from the family who run Arista is amazing - we didn't arrive until midnight so the key... More

We stayed in a Loft apartment with Spa and thoroughly enjoyed it. Clean, comfortable, warm and spacious. Excellent service from All of the Staff and made to feel really welcome. They accommodated our every need and always with a smile. Great place to stay.

We stayed in Apartement 8 (Family Unit) for five nights. Very spacious, clean, very friendly staff. A 20-minute-walk to the Center, five minute-drive to Te Puia, 20 minutes to Waimangu Valley (highly recommended!). . Everything just like they said on ther homepage. No surprises All in all a top value for money-motel. We would come again, when we travel to... More

This is definitely a motel to consider when you go to Rotorua. One house can comfortably keep seven people at one time. The quality of the beds are exceptional with thick quits and bed heaters for the chilly winter nights. Not that you would notice it- the radiator system is efficient (sometimes a tad bit too much). It is also... More
