Our group of three people stayed at the Red Rock Thermal motel for 2 nights, in a one bedroom apartment, with a king sized bed in the lounge room, and two singles in the separate bedroom. The room was lovely and clean, and the furnishings were nice. The kitchen was well stocked, with an oven and a full size fridge.... More

We stayed in Rotorua in April and found a place that did not accommodate nearly as well as this place. We had a great stay at Red Rock these last few days.

Since the price was cheap I wasn't expecting much but I was very pleasantly surprised! The room was fantastic, very clean and modern. Great bathroom, everything you could need in a kitchen and the beds were great too. To top it off, wifi was free, which you don't get everyday in hotels. The highlight was definitely the free mineral spa... More
