This is our 5th stay, was recommended by a friend. In short this is the only place to stay in Rotorua, good old fashioned hospitality by Tristen & Peter. Just up the road is Whakarewarewa Forrest the home of some of the best Mountain Biking in NZ. These guys have a bike wash and happy to secure the bike in... More

Our family group of 4 stayed 2 nights at Sport of Kings. The apartment was warm and clean, the wifi was free and strong, the towels were thick and plentiful. We appreciated the advice about various attractions around Rotorua, and the phone calls and bookings made on our behalf. Lovely hosts and very comfortable apartment- what more could you want?

What can I say.....The owners here go above and beyond to help, the place is spotlessly clean and tidy, beds comfortable, rooms heated with the thermal heat along with the pool and spa. The motel is an older one, but better appointed than some 5 star I have stayed in.

This place was fantastic. The room and facilities were great, especially the spa and the heated pool! More than that though, was how welcome we were made to feel. It was like visiting friends, the owners went out of their way to make sure we got the most out of our time there and even helped us book some activities... More

The kindness of our hosts, Pete and Tristan, was unrivalled in our month long holiday in New Zealand and Australia. The amount of personal attention we received from the entire staff was amazing. They were extremely caring when helping us plan our entire stay and prioritize what we needed to see and when. We were greeted warmly even with a... More

Stayed just the one night in Rotorua. The hosts treated us with the utmost kindest from the second we arrived. The rooms were impeccably clean, well stocked with all amenities and were comfortable and quiet. This is the best service I've been offered in any hotel around the world. No need to book anywhere else!

My partner and I stayed here in November 2014. The owners both greeted us very warmly. They were extremely proud of their hotel, and that pride showed in how well they maintained the place. They even gave us a tour of the place, explained the thermal heating system and gave us some advice on things to do in the area.... More
