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

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
