Enjoyed stay with 2 little children. Basic but clean and comfortable. Was pleased to see our host check cleanliness of spa between usage. Provided generous supply of fresh towels and comfy pillows. TV a bit small and without full access to sky tv.

The owners were overseas whilst I stayed there but the temporary manager Barbara was very nice, kind. and helpful. The facilities of the room were good, it was nice and clean however Birchwood Spa sits on a main road and the traffic, especially the trucks, rumbled past all night. Even with all the windows closed I heard them and often... More

This motel was impeccable. Everything you could want was provided. We stayed in one of four townhouses which has the benefit of a garage. This means we didn't need to unpack car. It was like an extra room. Very clean and tidy and spacious.

Went here with hubby and our bubby. We had a lovely time in Rotorua. We had the studio ground floor spa unit and it was just what we needed. Motel is tidy, well represented, staff are friendly, a bed, a tv, bathroom and private bath tub outside..which our infant loved! Was great to hop in there after our busy day... More

Stayed just one night enroute to Gisborne and booked fairly last minute. Hosts could not have been more welcoming. We had an upstairs studio - very spacious and clean. Nice spa bath. Quiet. All the facilities we needed for our stay and lots of little extras. Location a little out of town but no problem with a car.

We stayed at Birchwood Spa Motel for one night a few days after Xmas. This property is located a bit far from town but just a few steps away from Whakarewarewa / Te Puia, so it's not ideal if you don't have a car. The rooms are tidy and spacious. The courtyard has a huge (yet slippery) spa bath to... More

We booked for 2 nights over late December but illness meant we missed the firsy night. No problems they actually were able to sell the room and credit us. We stayed an extra night. The managers were lovely people to deal with. Neat clean and tidy motel, quiet. Handy to all attractions. Managers gave local advice. We'll definately stay again.

It had 2 tv one by the lounge and the other by the other room so we dont have to fight over the tv ( my son wants his disney channel/the husband the sports channel). Kitchen and toilet was clean.

We only stayed here one night, wish it could've been longer! The setting was very pretty with beautiful flower-filled hanging baskets outside of the doors. Rooms were clean and comfortable!! The only negative for us was that we did not find any bakeries or shops within walking distance.
