We booked for a night in a studio room, after traveling some distance and arriving late afternoon we looked forward to relaxing in the spa only to be disappointed that there was no more hot water left. However the disappointments continued, the bathroom vanity was not only rotten but also uncleaned from the previous occupiers shaved hairs all around the... More

Arrived without booking after checking out several other motels. The room on the 2nd floor had font and back windows, so we thought it would suffice on a cool night. WRONG! Lack of breeze. The people below were speaking quite loudly and ignored our pleas for a bit of quiet at 11pm. Not a pleasant night. Then at 7am, tradies... More

A studio with private spa bath (and they have mineral pools on their property though we didn't use those as looked a bit dinghy) for only $99/night. Microwave oven, kettle, electric stove and washing up equipment was available. Bed was comfortable, modern TV wall mounted. Extra towels for the mineral pool (or if like us you ventured to find a...

We stayed here for a couples night away and thought it was wonderful value for money. We had a studio with a spa in a private courtyard for only $99. I though the bed was amazingly comfortable and the TV was modern. We had a hard time finding the sports channel but did find it in the end. All in... More

My Husband and I booked our stay through the AA, and we stayed 3 nights in a studio unit for $99 a night. (With a Spa Bath!) Great value for our money and very clean! Yes, it is an older place but a lot has been done to bring it up to 2014. Our bed was more comfortable than the... More

We stayed at Gateway Int in Rotorua for 2 nights (5 people) and the apartment was a good size and clean enough, however it is old and worn and needs a bit of work. Many of the power points did not work, and with teenagers wanting to charge laptops and phones, and adults needing kettles, microwaves and hairdryers, it was... More

We had a night here in January. The management seems to be very new, and are trying hard to tidy up the place. The room had signs of recent maintenance. Bed very comfortable and room spacious. The only real complaint was the lack of Sky Sport 1....we'd checked ahead and were told that it was there but it wasn't. A... More

Not too bad, good value for money. Can't securely close the Windows but everything else works. It was spacious and suited perfectly with what we need. Some added bonus of the mineral spa. Need more attention to it though
