The Geneva Motor Lodge is situated not far from the centre of Rotorua on the main motel drag. It is mid priced, of moderate quality; clean but looking a bit dated. The management are friendly without being outstanding. All in all the Geneva is middling.

The only disappointment was no air conditioning..our first night was very hot and uncomfortable - a fan does not cut it and not great having to leave it on all night. Second... More

Modern unit in a good location walking distance to town center. Managers were very helpful in providing suggestions of things to do in and around Rotorua. Room is fairly standard with a basic kitchen Microwave and fry pan only, but was all we needed. Few minutes walk to local restaurant was well worth the recommendation from the hosts.

Excellent price, great place. Provided a safe place to store two of the bikes we had with us, and was extremely helpful when I left something behind. Room was clean and tidy, although air conditioning would have been greatly appreciated. Also, thanks for letting me borrow your tools :)

Managers were very welcoming and helpful. Love that the unit was very clean and in good repair. Price was reasonable. The only down side was the beds were too saggy and soft for us, probably need replacing. The position is convenient and parking is available. Wifi was free, great!

Thank you Leanne for taking the time to review our Motel, Reviews are always appreciated. I am sorry you didn't find your bed so comfortable, Although we don't really get too many complaints about our beds we have replaced a few, it would have been good to know which room your were in so we could have checked, More

We usually visit the first Sunday of each month. Geneva is situated just across the road from the racecourse where the Rotorua Jazz Club holds their meetings. Bill & Sheryll are magnificent hosts, Bill's breakfasts are not likely to be equalled, even better than the ones my mother used to make! Plus the advantages of Host Accommodation. Free paper and...

We've now had two visits to this motel. The reason is the great bed, so a wonderful sleep after a hot soak. Even though the weather was cold the unit had a very efficient heater so we were warm and snug.

Thank you for your kind review and pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay within us once again. It sure has been cold the last few weeks so our Fill your own Spa Pools are very popular at this time of the year More

Enjoyed our last minute stay here. After a long day travelling cross country, we decided to stop for the night. Our hosts were accommodating of our late arrival and provided a great rate considering we had a room with a spa right next to our bed. Would happily stay here again.
