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

We booked in after a very bad experience in another motel. The welcome we received when we arrived was very friendly and we were invited to inspect the rooms. The room was very clean and comfortable and we had a much needed good nights sleep. All the staff were very helpful and friendly. Good facilities and amenities. Would recommend to... More

I have now visited this motel for the third time. Originally we chose it because it had a spa bath in the room. Now I notice that quite a few of the motels do the same so perhaps if we come again we will branch out. We were a group of 3 females, myself, my sister and a friend. The... More
