Got tired of driving on our trip back from Wellington (via Napier), so we dropped in to Malones at Rotorua. For a very reasonable room rate we got a large clean and comfortable room with a spa bath at the rear of the motel - so very quiet and peaceful. All in all we can thoroughly recommend Malones as a...

Stayed at Malones for about a week during the holidays. Great location, close to city center and shops (10-15 mins walking). Owners were very helpful in recommending places to visit and arranging for transportation. Outdoor spa was nice.

Assistance Dogs New Zealand have public access set in NZ Legislation under the Human Rights Act 2011 and the Dog Control Act 1996. The management had not previously been familiar with Assistance Dogs NZ. They... More
