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

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.
