A sizable motel that have multi-rooms choices for friends. We stayed in two bedroom apartment for 4 people. It is actually can stay up to 5 people as there is a single bed in living room. Hot spa and swimming pool available outdoor with warm water which is very common in Rotorua. Kitchen is well equipped. 15-20 walk from I-site.... More

Recommend this place 100% big spacey rooms, with a big bath / spa tub in the bathroom, comfy beds, great TV coverage (not sure why you'd need it in this town) thermal / mineral pools. Great cafe for breakfast and dinner, and all of this in a very convenient part of the city. Not to mention the free wireless internet... More

The hotel was full to bursting and we only just booked in before the No Vacancies sign was displayed. Nevertheless the service was excellent and staff friendly and helpful. Room was clean and welcoming and we had a quiet, relaxing stay and would happily return. Good coffee at the restaurant in the morning and enjoyed the dip in the mineral... More

The Boulevard Motel is one of the original motels along the Fenton Street strip. While it may look a little dated, this motel provides you with the authentic Rotorua motel experience, complete with their own mineral pools, a rarity in todays 'resort' driven world. Boulevard does what it says on the tin, meaning it is a motel, not a 5-star... More

Having read some of the reviews we were somewhat apprehensive on the drive to Rotorua to stay at the Boulevard Motel but we shouldn't have worried. The lady at reception was very welcoming and pleasant as were all the staff we came in contact with during our 3 night stay. As the 3 bedroom unit was already let a special... More

Room was very tired and in need of refurbishment. Bathroom was tiny and primitive with absolutely nowhere to put anything. Bed OK but too soft like most motel beds. A bit overpriced but this is Rotorua.

Motel needs a revamp. Our room and anothers did not pass the clean test. No outdoor privacy on 2nd level where our room was. A lovely clean outdoor thermal pool plus private pools is a bonus. The outdoor area is very pleasant, there is also a games room with pool table and video machines to keep the kids busy. Once... More

Very disappointed with this motel this time. The spa bath in the very small unit was unable to be used on two of the three nights because of "problems" with the thermal water. Also the soaking pools were unable to be used. The restaurant was no longer open for breakfast or dinner. Previously I have had great experiences with this... More
