Great location - just out of town. Walking distance to a lot of shops, cafés etc, but the motel is nice and quiet. Really helpful and friendly staff. Had a large spa room - decorated with a retro theme which was awesome. Spa was great. Very spacious and comfortable. Wifi was fast and reliable. No extra charge for the wifi.... More

The room is very clean and tidy. The heater had already been turned on when we arrived. Reception girl is very nice, and the Maori show she booked for us at night is great! Manager Phil helped us a lot on our next trip, many thanks to Phil! Highly recommend to stay at Rotovegas ! Absolutely your first choice !

We only stayed for one night, but was a great place to stay. The couple at the front desk were very friendly and personable. The pool was nice and warm even though we stayed during the NZ winter. We checked out a couple DVDs from the front desk, which was nice. The room had a great dinette to use and... More

Sadly we only had one night at this delightful motel, on the main strip in Rotorua. It was a very wet day and we had got soaked doing the luge and sky swing, so it was fantastic to get into our very own hot-tub to warm up and relax. The room itself was very spacious and the retro feel was... More

This motel was just great... clean rooms, gorgeous quirky décor (tastefully done), the guy on reception was so friendly and gave us much useful information without being pushy or biased. I thoroughly enjoyed staying at this Motel and wished I had booked more nights in the town just to stay in this motel. Loved it. WANT their wallpaper... so fun.
