We recently returned from a three week tour of New Zealand. We stayed at many motels but this one was our favourite. The owner is extremely friendly and goes out of his way to give information about the surrounding area and places to visit. The rooms were great and we loved the free wifi (some motels charge). Only a few... More

The owner is a kind, patient human being. He provides vouchers for sights around Rotorua. Toward the end of my stay, I found out that he is currently renovating all the hotel rooms. My hotel room hadn't been renovated yet, but I found nothing wrong with it. The floor, kitchen, and bathroom were clean. Refrigerator was tidy. Overall, the hotel... More

Good basic comfortable accomodation with good self-catering kitchen facilities. Helpful hosts/owners (Brij). Moderately easy walking access (10-15 minutes) to downtown ped mall via thermal parks and the hospital or direct via Lake Road. Shops (veggie, meat, bread/milk)right across the street. Sorry we missed having any pool time - too much else to do in and around the town.

This was our third stay at the Cleveland on our annual three day visit to Rotorua, and was originally tried on the recommendation of friends. Previously we always stayed at the city centre Millennium hotel, but is definitely not to be recommended. Our hosts at Cleveland are warm and welcoming and our rooms have always been clean, comfortable and offered... More

Based on Tripadvisor reviews we chose to stay here. I'm so glad we did. Whilst the motel is a bit old and tired, it is spacious, has a great pool, good location and well priced. Maybe the highlight was the owner Brij, who made us feel incredibly welcome, had tremendous local knowledge and was a terrific ambassador for Rotorua. Would... More

My husband and I spent one night at the Cleveland Motel in February 2014, and wished it could have been longer. The proprietor was very helpful and friendly, gave us good advice about places to go, things to see. The rooms were very clean and had everything we needed for self catering. WiFi/TV system worked great. Parking was right in... More

Excellent facilities, everything you would need to make your stay very comfortable. Room was cleaned everyday and if not to many pots, they were washed. Mineral pools were very relaxing so you must try them, heated outdoor provided too. The owners were just amazing, so friendly and helpful and we miss them already! Please do not go anywhere else, get... More

Not your typical bland modern motel! Its older, but has quiet, good sized rooms set in spacious grounds with a traditional Rotorua mineral pool and a warm swimming pool. Well located and a very helpful proprietor.

This was a last minute booking as we couldn't decide where to go for the weekend. And what a little gem we found! We were warmly greeted by Brij. He was extremely helpful and so friendly. Our 2 bedroom apartment was very spacious and very clean. We were very happy with what we saw. The wifi was very quick and... More
