Only a couple of minutes drive from the central city this motel is in a great location - very quiet as tucked away on a side street just off the main drag. Our room was clean and in very good condition and was nice and warm thanks to the radiator heaters. The hosts were incredibly friendly and happy to offer... More

Couldn't be better. Right from the start with a warm and friendly welcome. Centrally located near everything, fantastic pool and private spa, particularly great to relax in after a hard days sightseeing. Loved meeting the owners who were very helpful. Clean warm rooms excellent standard. Would stay there again in a flash.

This is a great little motel. Good value for money. Exceptionally welcoming family owners. A little bit out of the town centre so a car is needed to get about, but that makes for peaceful evenings. A small but perfectly formed pool and BBQ area (natural geothermal heated pool). The owners were very helpful when planning day and evening excursions,... More

OK, so where do I start: - Pete and Tristan are wonderful human beings for reasons too abundant to enumerate here - go and meet them and see for yourself - The rooms are spacious and well equipped, with a thermal spa bath for your relaxing needs - As the motel is tucked away on a side street, über tranquil;...

We had stayed at the Sport of Kings motel in Rotorua twice before. We liked it, so booked again in August 2014 - the three of us, my wife, teenage son and me. The motel is located on Peace St, off the busy Fenton St. Nice to be in a side road - pleasant and quiet. We received a very... More

This was the cheapest hotel we stayed in our tour. And, frankly we could given more. It can never be compared with a fancy hotel. We were there for only one night, and we needed a place to crush. This was a wonderful choice, the location is convenient, the owners are very funny, helpful and caring, the rooms are clean.

I found this motel via trip advisor and am very happy to say service and rooms are as great as the reviews. Fabulous service by Tristen- good price ( had lovely room w heated spa in the back- what a treat !). Tristen magically made a dvd player and good movies appear for my very tired kids, had small fridge/kitchenette-... More

This is the 4th or 5th time I have stayed here - On arrival the owners recognised my vehicle and were straight out with the key to the room. Any request is no problem at all - Often offering to go WAY above the call of duty for the guests. Very friendly and talkative. Couldnt recomend more highly! Well priced,... More

This is the second time we have stayed at Sport of Kings and once again we were not disappointed. Tristen and Pete are so friendly and welcoming. The room was perfect. Modern with its own spa pool, comfortable beds, heating and self contained if you fancy cooking. Nice touches like freshly ground coffee are what make places stand out and... More

Friendly reception from the hosts when we arrived, Great clean modern rooms with central heating (radiators) so my wife and children where happy as they do not like the cold winter nights, Even happier when they found out the pool was heated and at 36 degrees. A swim ensured the kids tired out and slept soundly for the night. allowing... More

Thank you for your lovely review, it was a pleasure to have you all to stay! Our thermally heated outdoor swimming pool is fantastic - the best way to relax and exhaust the kids ready for a good night sleep! With the temperature being digitally controlled it is set at the perfect temperature winter and summer! I am so pleased... More
