We stayed here for a couple of nights, found the place to be quiet old and dated. Bed was clean and comfy, however found the amount of cockroaches too much. When mentioned this to the host, he said that had just been fumigated few days before, so I don't know, but for the price, wasn't too thrilled. However, the location... More

The motel is in a great location, close to restaurants and Rotorua's many interesting sights. The rooms are not large but adequate and clean. It was, therefore, a pity that the "host" turned out to be a Basil Fawlty character who, despite the fact that free wifi was available, decided that he would limit its use for his guests for... More

This a well located comfortable and clean motel on the lake shore and five minutes stroll from the excellent restaurant quarter . A great base for exploring Rotoria and beyond . John and Joan could not have been more welcoming and helpful .

Excellent location for access to Lake attractions, and short walk to eating establishments and town centre. We stayed in two ground level units, which were clean and quite roomy. Beds were reasonably comfortable. The units themselves could really do with some upgrades, especially the bathroom in the studio unit. I hate climbing into a bath for a shower!! All in... More

We booked into Ledwich Lodge because we had enjoyed our stay here 2 years ago. Again we were given a very spacious first-floor motel room with a view of Lake Rotorua. The facilities were very clean and tidy. One really great feature is the motel's location - within easy walking distance of the lake, the restaurant area, the central shops... More

Good location for Rotorua Lake and town centre, restaurants etc. Bed linen, towels crockery and cookery utensils all very clean. The kitchen and bathroom are shabby and badly in need of refurbishment . The spa bath is disgusting. Compared with similar accommodation, this was very poor value for money.

Ledwich Lodge Motel is situated almost on the Lake edge at the northern end of the CBD. We found it ideal for our purposes. It had good cooking facilities, geothermal heating, plenty of lighting and comfortable beds. The owners were thoughtful in putting out an extra reading lamp when they saw one was needed. Our large room was upstairs so... More

It was great to arrive and find a room / studio comfortable, with big, soft bed, hot tub, good TV, stove and fridge. We were greeted by the owner John, a charming English gentleman who for many years living in NZ with his wife Joan. Hospitable, upon arrival gave us tips on places we should visit and invited us to... More

We stayed here for a week in February and would have no hesitation in recommending this hotel to anyone. The studio room was clean, tidy and well equipped. The balcony was great for sitting out on and watching the world go by with a view across the park to the lake. The owners were very friendly and extremely helpful as... More

Stayed over night in this motel. Hosts were lovely and friendly, room was spacious and comfortable. Perfect location for easy access to Lake Rotorua. Excellent value for money. Highly recommend this accommodation. For a yummy breakfast in a lovely location we suggest Aroma Cafe 1126 Fenton St, Rotorua
