Lovely service and we had a ground floor unit. Quiet/park outside unit/spa out back and such lovely decor. Units were clean and tidy and nice and warm. Bed comfortable. Apart from the smell I love Rotorua and this is handy to everything. Would return.

A great place to stay! this motel is conveniently located, close to town and supermarkets. The units are very well presented, warm and comfortable. Our ground floor unit slept three, and included a spa bath. It was easy to prepare simple meals in the kitchen. Wi-fi was freely available and there was a great TV package. Highly recommended.

Our family room was very clean, quiet and warm. Spa pool was great and parking at front of door was useful. Owners very helpful with information about Rotorua and provided discounts. An enjoyable stay.

Rooms are dated but spotlessly clean. King size bed. Our unit near to road but noise level was not great. Owner helpful in changing us to downstairs unit. Would stay again, Not all units have indoor spas. .

We have stayed at the Golden Glow three times. It is a warm and cosy retreat after busy winters' days exploring the thermal wonderland that is Rotorua. The spa is great, the rooms are warm. handy to supermarket and top takeaways, as well as the town itself. Friendly owners and simply a fine place for a cost-effective family stay.

.This Motel while fairly old is tidy and clean and is located handy to Town. The facilities are good. But the male owner should not be dealing with the public, he is aggressive and vey rude, not really the ideal person to be running a Motel and dealing with the public!

Owner was very helpful and offered us discount vouchers to various attractions. Rooms are dated but spotless. The spa pool was a real bonus, well equipped kitchen and good coverage of sky channels. A handy 3-5 minute walk to the main shopping mall. Well worth the money and would stay again.

Me and my boyfriend stayed here for one night. It was very clean and the spa pool made it worth the money. (Although turned off at 10pm to keep noise down for other guests). I would recommend the motel although it's not modern it is still worth the money, very comfy and the lady owner was very helpful when we... More
