We stayed at the motel for an initial 3 night stay whilst visiting Rotorua and we enjoyed it so much that on our return trip from Napier back to Auckland we booked in again for another 2 nights. Phil and Bev the owners were extremely friendly and welcoming. They recommended places for us to visit and every one that we... More

This is a nice little gem very close to Rotorua CBD/Town. The owners of this motel are friendly, helpful and very happy to have you stay with them, rooms and living areas were spotless, upon arrival we were provided with discount vouchers (where possible) and flyers for the local attractions, etc - We had 2 cars but were only renting...

For just $20 they did four peoples laundry... More

We were so pleased when Phil and Bev had a room ( their last) as we had just turned down two rather grotty and similar priced rooms earlier. The room was so clean and fresh, bedding crisp and white and everything we needed to make a simple supper as we were so tired from hiking all day. We were even... More

We stayed 2 nights in a 2 bedroom unit. I had read reviews of the lovely owners which swayed my decision to stay here. The rooms, beds etc were fine, the kitchen table whilst a little awkward was OK for a short stay. Little noisy - we could hear one of our sons in the fold out sofa-bed (which was... More

Bev R, Owner at Brylin Motel, responded to this review

We have been in the Motel/Hotel business for 10 years both here and in Europe. We have always responded to Trip Advisor reviews objectively & with some reserve. We need to make an exception in your case and feel it necessary to put the record straight. To answer your points - Room service is carried out daily between 10am &... More

Phill and Bev, our hosts, were absolutely fantastic. Warm and friendly, they were able to suggest places for us to visit that were a little different from the usual tourist attractions. The room was fantastic and the washing service brilliant - freeing up lots of time for us to maximise our site-seeing. Would definitely recommend Brylin Motel for a family... More

We briefly legged it to Rotorua on our way from Coromandel back to Auckland (yes, bit of a detour) and picked this place to stay on short notice. The owners were very friendly and helpful and showed us around the room, the only thing that we struggled to find was the light switch (!) After a 20 minute search we... More

We (my husband, two teenage kids and myself) stayed at the Brylin Motel for two nights and found Bev and Phil to be the friendliest and most welcoming motel owners we have ever encountered. Their tip for a good pub meal (at The Pig and Whistle) was spot on. We stayed in a two bedroom apartment and found it to... More
