Stayed here for 2 nights when visiting Rotorua and surrounding area. Was in the off-season so plenty of Motels to pick from but we decided on Sport of Kings purely based on ratings found online.

The rooms were spacious and very clean and the spa very relaxing after action packed days at the Rotorua attractions. The outdoor pool and BBQ area is a lovely spot with the pool... More

Stayed here for two nights and were made to feel welcome from the very beginning. Hosts went out of their way to assure our stay was comfortable and advised us on excursions and even gave us some discount codes. Would highly recommend.

Excellent location for all of Rotorua's attractions yet in a peaceful and quiet area. Comfortable accommodation, we had our own spa pool which was great. Hosts were the best we had in Australia, we only stayed two nights but with Tristen's advice we packed in so much and the discount vouchers that Mikayla gave us were a bonus. We still... More

The owners are as nice and helpful as all the reviews suggest which is something that sets them apart. The apartments are large and accommodate families nicely. Its quiet and... More
