This was the best motel, in every respect, that we stayed in on our recent North Island trip. It is clean to a very high standard, and comfortable, ideally situated close to supermarkets etc and in a quiet location. The hosts, Ree and Farid were one of the most welcoming of any motel hosts where we had stayed. Unfortunately we... More

Stayed for 2 nights at this motel. Ree and Farid (the owners) were so friendly and nothing was too much trouble. Lovely clean room, with great facilities, also excellent disabled unit available with wet floor shower and ramp access for walker frame or wheelchair access. Wonderful location, across the road from restaurants, and the shopping centre☺

Excellent location! Right across from Central mall. Ree and Farid were very pleasant, friendly and accomodating. They even helped us book our activities while we were in Rotorua. Three bedroom unit was very clean and spacious for our family. Would highly recommend to our family and friends as this is the second time my family has stayed here. Will definitely... More

I stayed here only one night. Super impressed how friendly the owner (I think?) was. Nothing was a problem and she made me feel so at home! The room was spacious, with a lovely large spa bath. Clean room, comfy bed. The motel is easy walking distance to the main part of town for restaurants and shops. Just across the... More

Like other reviews this lodge is right across the street from a large super market and coffee shop. Very handy since the rooms all have fully equipped kitchens. We did not care for our room as it was for handicap assessable. The bath was not a comfortable room, we were missing items each day that the cleaning service kept forgetting.... More

It's just across supermarkets and shops. Very convenient and there is enclosed car parking area within the hotel compound. Within walking distance to i-site and Rotorua night market. So be sure to plan your stay in Rotorua on Thursday night. I personally miss this as although I stayed in Rotorua for 3 days, it was not on a Thursday. The... More

The owners/managers were attentive and friendly and always asked if everything was OK. one one occasion we needed towels to visit one of the local hot springs, when we asked... More

We stayed at this very comfortable and clean motel on our first visit to NZ for two nights. Very pleasant and accommodating owners, who ensure their rooms are well equipped. Very close to large supermarket and small shop mall and only a few minutes walk to a wide selection of restaurants and bars. Lake also easy stop reach. Overall, an... More

We needed a one night stay in rotorua and after research settled on this place. It was fantastic. A wonderful warm welcome and fresh milk provided for complimentary hot drinks. The motel is located just across from a shopping mall with supermarket so if you're staying for a longer period of time you can get all your supplies as there... More

This is a great, centrally located motel. Clean and comfortable with everything you need for an overnight stay. The lady at reception was especially welcoming and as a bonus provided fresh milk rather than shelf milk. The only thing I would mention is there is a continental breakfast provided you order before 5pm. Unfortunately we didn't spot that but luckily... More
