We stayed in Fenton Court the first time we went to NZ in 2011 and when we were not put there for this trip, we insisted we wanted Fenton Court. Little did we know that the motel had changed hands and it was even better!! The motel isn't the fanciest we've stayed, but we like it hands down. First, they... More

Stayed for 2 nights on business in a 1 bedroom apartment which was clean and functional but minimally comfortable. The mattresses are soft and the sofa bed can be felt through the sofa seat. The place is screaming for at least one comfortable and inviting surface to sit, lay or lounge on. The bathroom was also really tired with a... More

We went there on our 1st anniversary and had an absolutely great time. The owner Lin (sorry if I miss spelled) was so warm in welcoming us. Went to the room and we had a small anniversary gift for us which was very thoughtful of them. The spa pool was nice and large and the breakfast next day was wonderful.... More

I'm a NZ citizen living in Auckland for 14yrs now and have travelled to Rotorua & Taupo many times and stayed at many different motels. We chose this motel primarily because of its rating and the price which was reasonable for a 1 bedroom apartment with a spa in the bathroom and breakfast included. We were booked for a night...

Dear Sir / Madam In response to your review we received regarding your stay with us, I would like to say that I was unaware that a discounted price had been arranged previous to your arrival, for that I apologize. Asking for payment upfront is normal policy, and your response was that you wanted to pay in the morning because... More

We had a lovely one night stay for a get away at this motel. The owners were absolutely lovely and the room very comfortable. The spa was amazing and we spend a lot of our time in it. We will definitely go back again for a stay.

Fenton Court Motel was great. We wanted a nice weekend away and weren't disappointed with this choice. One bedroom with spa on the ground floor, very relaxing. Clean and tidy with nice furnishings and well equipped if you wanted to dine in. The owners have only recently taken over and they were friendly folk. We even had a bonus complimentary... More

We stayed in the 2 bedroom unit. Price was including the breakfast which I thought was very decent. Loved the spa in the back and the bed were very comfy and spacious. The motel itself is in a nice location. Close to the city centre. The bathroom and the lounge area were big. Internet was free but felt that it... More

Compact functional room. Excellent spa pool in a private courtyard. Handy for town and for the thermal areas. Tucked away from the traffic of Fenton st. Great breakfast included in cost of room. Cramped parking area.

We had a very pleasant stay here as a group of 6 in Dec 14. First we were warmly welcomed by the owners Terry and Karen who even helped us unload our stuff and bring them to our rooms. This was the only motel we stayed at in NZ, where the owners themselves greeted us and really made us feel... More

We stayed for 2 nights at the Fenton Court motel…Queens Birthday weekend 2015. It was a very pleasant experience because we were welcomed by Terry the owner and were treated with good Kiwi hospitality. The owners offer a free courtesy shuttle service to run clients into, and out of, town. Our room was clean and functional with unlimited free wifi... More
