Modern looking TV ( we didn't try it ) and free WiFi. Only downside was the noise. Room 4 is a... More

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

We stayed in the family studio and had a nice time. The motel is clean and on a good location. Easy and convenient parking. The room was quiet and spacious and well serviced. We liked the manager and he really did his best to offer great service.

The motel is located on Fenton Street where all other motel and hotels are there. Very near to Lake Rotorua and stores. Rooms are nice and clean.But the USP of this place is their owners who are friendly and ready to help any time.
