Sure Ledwich Lodge is a bit tired but it is clean, comfortable and very spacious. I quite like the older feel - I don't need everything to be brand new and, consequentially, dull. This place has great personality. The views are great, the location superb and the owners super friendly. It is very quiet at night being at the slow... More

Travelling in 2 couples and we just wanted a cheap night in Rotorua before heading further south and stopped here. We happened across the Motel as we were driving into the town and popped in to see if they had 2 rooms. We stayed because the man who manned reception was so rude we wanted to see if it was... More

My husband and I stayed at room G for two nights and I slept like a baby. Checking in with the owner was quick. We arrived too early before check-in time so the room wasn't ready for 30 minutes. They were apologetic although it was really our fault since we got there too early anyway. The owner suggested we park... More

Close to the lake in the middle of Rotorua, close to restaurants, Government Gardens and museum. Big room. Everything you need. The fridge was much too cold and heating is not regulable (just on or off).

The owner couple were so nice and helpful! The room was tidy, comfortable and warm enough. Location was quite good. It was quite cheap for being such great room! Everyone got wifi just 2 hours for free. For a traveller who's looking for the next place to go that's just too little. You could have had a breakfast to your... More

We stayed here for 2 nights and we loved this place! Our room is located on the corner of the second floor, where we can have the perfect view of the park and Rotorua Lake from our bedroom. The rooms are very cozy and we felt at home. It is really close to Food Street where you can find numerous... More

Homely motel just over the road from the Lake and all the attractions. The units are very warm as they are thermally heated. A bit dated but worth it for the view and top units have a balcony and you can sit on the balcony and watch the sea planes and helicopters take off just over the road. Great Market... More

We visited Ledwich Lodge - stayed for 2 nights. Whilst comfortable - it is in need of an upgrade. Quite old and basic and overpriced for what you get. Location is OK - walking distance to restaurants - bars - shops. Wouldn't stay there again.

If you're looking for a fancy room, don't choose this place. It is in a nice location though, right by the waterfront, food, and shops. It looks a bit old school in the rooms, they should think about renovating the place.

We stayed for three nights in a large family room over the Waitangi Day long weekend. The owners were helpful. The free wifi internet was good. This was useful as we were trying to plan our activities for the next day. Although the rooms are in need of renovation, they were very clean and had all the necessary kitchen utensils... More
