Just returned from a month in NZ and this place stands out as the single best value for the money of our entire trip. Don't expect fancy, new, or spacious. In our room, one person would be roomy. but with two it starts to get cramped. It's older, but clean. Bed comfortable. Property comes with excellent value added: First, Lance... More

The motel has nice location, close to the center but away from a noisy road. The room we had was big enough and clean. The breakfast was nothing special but just good to start your day. The owner was very helpfull and friendly. I can not recall any bad thing so I do recommend the place.

The photos are completely misleading. The rooms are tiny, with no air conditioning which is a must in the heat of NZ weather. The bathroom was even smaller and was disgusting. There was black mould on the shower head and on the shower glass near the base where the cleaner obviously took a short cut. This motel is not 4... More

Wonderful value for the $. Lance at the front desk knows so much about the area. His tips were on target, whether it was a restaurant or a hike. The room itself worked. Beds were comfortable and shower was nice. Breakfast was a nice continental spread. No road noise, easy drive into town, and across the street (walk or drive)... More

This place was very clean and much nicer than expected for the price. The man at the check in desk was really really helpful with travel information and gave us a couple of discount vouchers. Breakfast was good too.

Stayed at Accolade Motel for 4 nights during the Rotorua Bikefest. Accommodation is standard motel fare - bathrooms are small but adequate, rooms are a good size and adequate, and the motel is well located - it is a short walk into the CBD and a supermarket over the road. But it is the friendliness and helpfulness of the host... More

Reasonable room size with some evidence of maintenance e.g. updated furniture. Bathroom fairly tired but functional. Clean and tidy. Well positioned for town with close to unit parking. Very warm welcome and continuous good service. Breakfast and particularly wifi as free inclusives a very handy plus.

the motel is clean, very cheap, wifi free, the toilettes are in the room, free parking. A common kitchen is available for cooking, two bikes available for free (book it in advance!). The people at the desk are very very kind, and they helped us to organize the time in rotorua with smart suggestion! It is perfect for that kind... More

I didn't have much hope from this motel given that we paid $90 for our one n8ght stay here.. but boy I was wrong. This motel has such a cute feel to it. The room is sufficient, the bathroom quite basic. Pros - friendly staff, heated beds (each side has its own controls), basic breakfast, and super quite! I slept... More

I stayed here for 1 night. Staff are friendly and helpful with tips on what to do, where to go etc. When we first opened the door to the room there was an overwhelming smell of dog shampoo! As I have a dog of my own the scent wasn't too bad, sprayed the girlfriends perfume everywhere and when we got... More
