Had booked Silver Fern based on the great tripadvisor ratings but I think we came in with expectations that were too high. It's by no means a bad place to stay, but don't expect it to be amazing either. One thing that I hadn't realize is that the hotel is far enough from the center of Rotorua that you have... More

We would have preferred the option of having downstairs unit and a spa. T hat did not require a steep climb to get into. The TVs remote worked intermittently from across the room. Overall this was pointed out by us on arrival nothing was done to fix it over our two night stay. A bit disappointing.

We had a lovely stay on a room with a spa. The motel was central for the tourist parts of the town and Alan and Shirley were helpful. The room was well equipped, clean, well kept.and we enjoyed the spa. Really good value for the size of the room and the easy access to restaurants and tourist sites. Would recommend.

We stayed there on 14 March. We found Allan and Shirley very friendly and the unit (27) very tidy and comfortable. The 11.00am standard checkout was great. Highly recommended. Handy to the race course and Whakarewarewa.

We, as a couple, absolutely liked this motel. It is located on a street where are tens of accommodation and all quite in distance from the centre of Rotorua (up to 2 km from the waterfront), but we really liked it and were happy that picked up it. Firstly the owner was very welcome from the beginning and later helped... More
