This motel is a very good option if you are on a tight budget. The rooms are no frills but They have all of the basic necessities. Caution however if you suffer from claustrophobia, you may find it a little disconcerting. Movement in the upstairs rooms can also be heard in the rooms below so can be annoying if you... More

Stayed here for one night with overseas relatives. Scrupulously clean and very tidy. Roadside unit but very quiet due to the double glazing. Beds were soft but we found them very comfortable. Would definitely stay here again if in Rotorua. Very reasonably priced.

We stayed here over the Easter weekend in a family unit which was exceptionally clean, probably one of the cleanest motels I've ever stayed in. The unit faced the road but the window had additional sound proofing so it was very quiet and we didn't really hear foot traffic or guest cars out the back either. However, we were right... More

We made a last minute booking four hours before arriving. We needed two beds in separate rooms. Our unit was fully self contained and spotless with beautiful linen. Although right by the road the double glazing was brilliant and we slept really well. The host was lovely and friendly and provided lots of travel tips.

We stayed here for just 2 nights. The room was small but very clean. The shower worked and fresh towels were provided each day, a small but perfectly useable kitchenette with a microwave and enough crockery for two people. Modern looking TV ( we didn't try it ) and free WiFi. Only downside was the noise. Room 4 is a... More

The Motel was ok because it wasn't too expensive but had everything you need... Bed was ok, shower had good pressure and was warm, TV was good especially when it was raining and we even had a kitchenette. We rented a stove from the owner, but he really insisted not to cook a steak or something smelly. The owner was... More

A typical NZ motel located on Rotoura's motel mile. This motel was absolutely spotlessly clean.The owner was very helpful and gave us maps and advice on where to go when we checked in. Our studio was situated in a courtyard which was great for sitting out for a drink and also breakfast. We also had a large bathroom with spa... More
