we needed a place to stay for the night. The greeting was slightly abrupt, more formal than welcoming. Clean and tidy unit, milk in the fridge and everything we required for the night. Comfy bed, quiet and a brisk walk into town for drinks and dinner. Would stay again

This motel has some good advantages - a nicely stocked kitchen so you don't have to constantly eat at restaurants is top of my list and this place has that. The internet is frustrating - had to walk over to the lobby (in another building) to access WiFi. We used the hot tub outside of our room - it is... More

Good price. Booked a one bedroom apartment with spa. Rooms are pretty small, but are fine for an overnighter if you don't want to spend too much on accommodation. My parents and I paid $163 for the one night and most of the other decent options were $200 and up. Place was clean. Parking right outside the door. Internet was... More

Very quaint…quiet, and clean. Managers very friendly. Just across the street from Whakarewarewa. Good location at south end of town. No sulfur smell at all. Wifi not particularly good but we had wifi problems at all hotels outside of Auckland.

Near Te Puia and the end of Fenton St. which is the main through street in Rotorua. Clean and well-maintained. WiFi was completely ineffective. Kitchenette well equipped with a decent fridge. Beds comfortable. Good shower. Not near any restaurants or grocery stores but can drive back along Fenton easily.

We only stayed one night however found the motel very sufficient for our needs. We didn't cook but there was a great kitchen available in our 1 bedroom unit. The spa outside, with outdoor seating was great & given it was so hot it was fabulous to be able to soak the feet in cold water while sitting chatting with... More

Arrived Christmas Day for 2 nights - greeted by charming owner (reminded me of Betty Grable era). Upon signing in she gave us a bag of sweets and explained that because of the public holiday staffing there may not be full service of the unit. That did not bother us. Our unit was a good size- separate bedroom - and... More

This Motel ticked all the boxes, spotlessly clean and very spacious. Comfortable beds, well equipped kitchen and bathroom, extra towels for Spa Pool which is big and deep, filling yourself so hygiene isn't an issue, also a generous amount of bubble bath. Generous amounts of tea and coffee, hot chocolate and choc chip biscuits, also a little jar of lollies... More

Stayed here while attending a conference so not a great deal of time spent in the unit. Unit had all we needed and was very clean. Barbara (temp manager) very welcoming and helpful. The units could do with a spruce up - our handbasin was cracked which lent a somewhat tired approach to maintenance. Bathroom design was very tight, the... More
