Motel is a little off the main road and out of city centre, so in a very quiet location without being too far away. Close to some of Rotorua attractions. Friendly staff, rooms adequate and clean. We (family of 4) stayed in 2 bedroom unit - more than sufficient room

The room rate is reasonable and the location is perfect for a relaxing holiday- little bit away from main road so it was nice and quiet. Great location as it is close to Rotorua thermal pool, mountains, redhills(?), supermarket and restaurants. The owner family members were aware of we were coming and received a warm welcome. We were originally planned... More

This place surpassed my expectations. It is a really well managed motel and the rooms are really clean and the panel heaters keep the rooms warm which was particularly important as it was really cold when we were there. Free WIFI is great also. I will return.

Unfortunately very musty and some pretty old things still in use ,the microwave and hairdryer must be 10 years old or more. Comfortable beds nice flatscreen Sky and we'll set up kitchen. However the service was poor with nothing replaced in the unit at all.

Really friendly staff who had helpful hints for us. The room was large, warm and comfortable with a lovely hot pool. This hotel is off the main road so is quiet. We had a 2 bedroom unit that had heaps of space. It's not walking distance to town but a pretty short taxi ride. It's a nice place to stay.

Clean room, good fasilaties, altho there was an overload of pepper and not enough sugar offered, also fridge froze things rather than keeped them cold. Office staff friendly and helpful, room serviced everyday. Very quite and good location.

I guess the best testimony one can give any establishment is return business - I have stayed twice in the past six weeks at Aywon (each for two nights) - as chance would have it (without requesting) in the same unit (19). Firstly, being located off Fenton Street means that this is a very quiet area - five minutes walk... More

We stayed at Aywon Motel at New Year. We found the motel to be clean and comfortable. It was a good handy location to everything. The proprietor was friendly and helpful. We did find the room very warm, but were reluctant to leave windows open as we had read a review on TripAdvisor from a previous visitor who's room had... More

We stayed three nights during our visit to Rotorua, during a period of hot weather. We were happy with the accommodation, and the location was handy. We arranged for an extra portable bed to placed in our one bedroom unit, and this worked out well for the three of us. We enjoyed the private spa pool. The staff were friendly... More

We stayed for one night at the start of a busy weekend. We were told on arrival that we were being upgraded to a room with a spa. This was located in an enclosed patio, total privacy and my husband loved having the facility. The only gripe we had was that the fridge froze everything, but then the sulphurous air... More
