Spent 2 nights at King of Sports Motel and despite poor summer weather (New Zealand is lush and green for a very good reason!) it was absolutely brilliant. The owners were exceptionally welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. Great advice on where to go locally and lots of discount vouchers to ease the burden on the wallet. Fantastic accommodation... More

From the moment we landed in Rotorua and met Pete and his "newly wed" wife we felt such an awesome sense of warmth. Both the hosts and their cute little daughter provide a sense of family in a superb property. The rooms are very clean and well stocked. We particularly loved the grounded coffee, the French press and the private... More

We stayed 2 nights in a King Suite Room, We asked for quiet but I doubt it was necessary as the whole place was quiet being just off the main road. Reception couldn't do enough for us. I would recommend this accommodation to everyone.

Very nice motel on a quiet road. Stayed for one night but were made very welcome by our hosts. The room was good quality and there is a spa and swimming pool available for use which was a bonus. It was about 15 minutes walk into the main bit of the town which wasn't a problem - our hosts offered... More

This is a great small motel just off a main road which makes it very quiet at night. The owners are so friendly and helpful with advice about local spots to visit. Our microwave did not work & it was replaced in under 5 minutes. Remarkable. Good wifi. Everything thermally heated including our room. Would definitely stay here again.

We stayed here for 3 nights and loved it. Ian and his wife are so friendly and helpful. The room was spotlessly clean and we just loved the hot tub! Perfect base to do whatever you want. We even drove to Whaneka? To go to White Island. Wished we could have stayed longer! Highly recommended. Thanks for all your kindness.

My friend and I spent our time (2 nights) in Rotorua at Sport of Kings Motel. Peter, Tristen, and their daughter, Mikayla, were above and beyond friendly! The room was clean and had everything we needed. Plus, the pool was geothermally heated and a perfect temperature for a swim after our busy days of travel! They were nice enough to... More

Stayed for one night at this excellent little motel and really enjoyed it. The rooms were of a good size, with a well equipped kitchen area. Very clean. Great bathroom. Lovely fresh coffee and full fat or skimmed milk choice were brought to our room (not been given that choice in many much posher places) were brought to our room.... More
