Recently had a chance to get away for the weekend but needed to take our dog so it was great this place welcomed pets although the $15.00 surcharge was a bit steep. Keep reading and you will see it doesn't get put towards a special clean. The staff were friendly and the unit was spacious and quiet with a very... More

This motel is very welcoming but is getting a bit tired and needs some money spending on it. Self-catering facilities are good. The best feature is the spa pool on the deck in most units, with water drawn directly from the volcanic aquifer. We would only recommend a room with the spa pool because without that the quality fades. Wifi... More

This motel has one decent thing, the mineral pool. When we were here, something was broken with the pipe system and the spa had to be turned off at 9. The Wi-Fi is decent in some rooms but is poor in rooms further away from the office. The TV and couch are a good combination with a nice touch of... More

My family of 2 adults and 3 children appreciated what greeted us when walking into and through our unit. The girls thoroughly enjoyed the unit's mineral pool, and the boy loved the free wi-fi, and couch and beds in front of the tv. Mum and Dad enjoyed direct access to outside deck and mineral pool from their bedroom. It was... More

Back in the seventies and eighties (and probably earlier but I wouldn't know) there were many motels on Fenton Street with their own mineral hot water bores, such that these places were heated for next to nothing via radiators and each room either had it's own natural mineral pool or one enormous one for all to enjoy. These have all... More

Very quiet situation and close to CBD and main attractions. Units have good sized lounge/dining, separate kitchen, bedroom, bathroom and toilet. Private mineral pool and courtyard completes the picture. This motel is also pet friendly. Owner is very helpful and obliging.

This is a small complex and has units with private pools with genuine thermal water off in a lovely courtyard off the bedroom. The owner is very helpful and the whole place is beautifully cared for. As it is just off the main drag it is lovely and quiet. This motel has everything that one would want ans is spotlessly... More

The room was quite spacious but very badly lit and dated although the bedding was fresh and clean and kitchen was spotless and quite well equipped there were a lot of cobwebs. The mineral pool was very private and good value.

We stayed at the Gibson Court Motel in Rotorua for 1 night. The room was very spacious, with it's own kitchen and small fridge. The room was clean, but very dated. A nice thing is that it is very central to some of the attractions, especially the Mitai Maori Cultural Experience/Rainbow Springs Nature Park, a must see! If you make... More

The main selling point of this small motel (about ten units) is the thermal pool attached to several of the rooms - the pool seats two adults comfortably and is situated on a very private garden deck leading off the bedroom. You fill the pool yourself with genuine thermal mineral water and so can control the depth and temperature. If... More
