We stayed here two nights and wish it had been longer. It was a girls weekend and we had the three bedroom house. All the rooms were comfortable and super clean. It was nice to have an extra bathroom too. Our host was fantastic and showed us around. Honestly we spent the first 5 min going "wow". Our unit had... More

Thank you Arista! My family of five had a fabulous stay. The family unit was spacious, ever so clean and with so many extra things thought of such as heating (already on), spa (towels etc already there), small oven (as well as a microwave), great shower, DVDs...We had a wonderful nights sleep in the super king downstairs and the kids...

My first impression wonderful as it was the ease in which to find Arista as it was dark when I arrived in Rotorua! Really easy!! The room was spacious and warm (it was raining and horrid weather) and my grandson and I settled in to the beds and had a great sleep! I was impressed by how immaculate the place... More

We stayed here for the netball Tournament. Has to be the best place weve stayed in for everything. Excellent rooms with equally outstanding hospitality (even down to a pack of cards). All rooms (i think there was about 6) were clean to a high standard when we arrived and then again when we returned from games. Defs will be returning

Stayed here with the family overnight in September while in Rotorua for my older son's school Football tour. The property is well maintained, very clean, the hosts are friendly and always had answers or information available. We had a Family Loft sleeping upto 6, we were 5, with two under 8's. The room was spotless, well appointed, warm (winter) and... More

Our 5 adults overnighted here on a whistlestop visit to Rotorua, stayed in Room 1 which sleeps 7. Fantastic layout: King bed downstairs studio style, double bed and 3 singles upstairs on the mezzanine floor. Nice kitchen with all amenities. Every thing was spotless and clean. The shower pressure was good but the Felton mixer head needs upgrading to something... More

Can't say enough good things about this place. This is the second time we stayed there and when we get back to Rotorua that's where we will stay again. Extremely clean facilities, awesome private spa bath, sky tv (including movies, sports, kids), free wi-fi and a great selection of new releases DVDs right there for your use. Just great! Thanks...

Hi, we are very happy your young family enjoyed their return visit with us. The DVDs are always super popular with the kids, that is the very reason we have a whole separate shelf just for them for when they have had enough of our pirate playground! Thank you for your awesome review and we look forward to seeing you... More

Very good quality motel with incredibly helpful owner Mike who pointed us to all the best local attractions. Best suited for families as rooms are for 6 people on 2 levels. Great hot spa with each room, but showers need upgrading with poor water pressure and fixed and low on shower wall. Some distance from Rotorua CBD but 5-10 minute... More

We stayed at the Arista with Mike and Annemarie Gallagher who were awesome hosts and it turns out that Mike is from Tokoroa. They went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable.

Go the mighty Spartans, We are so glad we could accommodate your team so successfully. Our 3 bedroom house is definitely an advantage with larger groups with its full kitchen and outdoor BBQ area. Another advantage of booking multiple rooms is you have multiple hot tubs to relax in after your netball games and are always popular with our guests.... More
