My wife and baby girl stayed here in Jan 2013. Comfortable modern and clean rooms. Kitchen has a microwave and fridge but no oven or cooktop. Bedroom was smallish with half metre either side of the bed and one metre at the foot of the bed. I had to shift the mattress slightly sideways to fit our travel cot. Bed... More

Fantastic. We were upstairs, and near road, but traffic does stop later evening. We did have a spa bath and the shower was over this. Could be a problem for older people to actually step into the spa bath to have a shower. Otherwise, top accommodation at reasonable rates.

We stayed at the Silver Fern for 2 nights early in January. My husband and I were hosting some old family friends from Alaska in the USA. They are first time visitors to New Zealand and the Silver Fern was their first accommodation experience here on their holiday. What a GREAT impression it made. Our two bedroom apartment was large...

Great accommodation and good location. Great DVD and book collection. This was one of the best places we stayed in NZ and would stay there again. Look no further folks, this is the place to stay in Rotorua!

Upon arriving in Rotorua we were hesitant to stay with the smell of the thermals so strong. We decided to give the area a fair chance & adjusted to the surroundings. The Silver Fern is owned by a wonderful couple who are most helpul is making their guests comfortable. We found our suite a bit noisy being closer to the... More

The apartments are nicely appointed and I agree with many other reviewers in that - the rooms - unlike most parts of this town - do not smell like rotten egg. Yayyyyy!!! lol. Anyway, not only are the apartments nicely appointed (the bath towels are beautiful btw) but the service is exceptional... My sister and I decided to just stay... More

Even though we only had 1 night in Rotorua the Silver Fern was the perfect place to base ourselves. Located on the other end of town away from the CBD, the Silver Fern was still the ideal place to stay and still only 5 minutes from all of the cafes and restaurants. We loved the warm friendly hosts especially Shirley... More

We stayed here about a month ago for 1 night. The place was beautiful and clean and the service was great! Like others have said the added bonuses of DVDs and bikes to use really add to the nice feel of this place! Well worth the money

What a beautiful place. The rooms were so bright and airy, even with a table and chairs outside to sit and have coffee. Traveling with my brother and sister-in-law we appreciated having 2 separate sleeping areas: tthe main room had a large bed and a little kitchen area and then there was a separate bedroom plus closet space. The bathroom... More

The Silver Fern is run by a most friendly and thoughtful couple. Not only do they provide clean and affordable accommodation, they give it with a smile. When we arrived in Rotorua, we had a mishap with a large chain hotel, which left us without accommodation. The Silver Fern took us in without a hassle. Best time, Best people.
