My family and I checked in on 7/27/15 and stayed for 3 nights. The staff, leaded by Micheal, was really the best staff I would have ever looked for. Micheal, himself, was a fantastic tour guide. In regards to the apartment, it was great and clean. We took the two-bedroom-loft. It was comfortable iin all means and nicely heated. Room... More

The first thing you'll notice is Fenton Street is Motel Boulevard in Rotorua! Arista is surrounded by other motels and you'll need to remember you booked it for a reason - its great reviews on Trip Advisor - as it doesn't visually stand out from the rest looking 'of a certain age'. Once you check in, of course, you realise... More

This motel was just ideal for our weekend away with a toddler. The room was absolutely spotless and really tastefully appointed. So nice and warm too with those radiators! The spa bath was great even in mid-Winter, and the room was so quiet and private. Would definitely recommend.

Our room (number 9 I think) was a joy to stay in - luxuriously appointed, spotlessly clean and spacious, the accommodation comprised a ground floor living-room including kitchen area and big shower-room, with a private patio containing a jacuzzi under a canopy roof, accessed through huge patio doors in the living-room. The bedroom was upstairs on a mezzanine balcony overlooking... More

Accommodation was very clean and perfect for a family. The loft was the preferred choice of the children aged 5 and 7. Close to all attractions . Mike was very knowledgeable about Rotorua and thankfully helped us start the key less hire car that required a foot on the brake.

Lovely place to stay as a family. We were met by Faye(?) who was so friendly and very helpful, giving us a few tips about the best attractions in town. The room was immaculate. The bathroom was a little older than some of the ones shown on the website, but it didn't matter as it was spotless. Really comfortable beds.... More

This is a lovely place to stay when visiting Rotorua! The owners are very helpful and welcoming, the apartments are warm, clean and nicely decorated and the highlight was the wonderful private spa pool in the backyard of the apartment! We will be back, thank you for the lovely stay.

Very Clean and incredibly friendly staff. They were very helpful setting up tours, and even allowing our checkout delayed until we got back from a morning tour, so we weren't rushed. Was great to chill in the "hot tub" thing after a long day of extreme adventures.

On our arrival we were welcomed by the lovely and helpful Feye - great customer service all with a friendly, can-do attitude and big smile! Our room (#5) was more than sufficient to meet our needs for a family of four for one night. Clean and tidy with plenty of bath linen and extra for the spa (located in a... More

Staff Feye is super helpful and friendly, always has big smile on her face:) :) the location of the motel is pretty good, only couple mins drive to the spa and Te Puia. Even though we couldn't sleep tight due to our neighbors were too loud in the middle of the night, it was still a pleasant stay:) Somehow we... More
