Superb hosts who could not do more to make sure you had a wonderful stay. The room was spacious, quiet, attractively furnished and the bed very comfortable. Sun streamed in to the room in the morning and the private in-ground spa was a delight at any time of day. Definitely recommended for business, couples or families.

I was wonderfully surprised by the friendly and warm welcome by the owners. Upon arrival at our room, I was equally surprised at the level of detail and accommodation provided. The room had a lovely modern feel to it, and the highlight was the private Spa Pool in our room. What a pleasure that was! It was well presented, clean... More

The room furnishings are a little outdated but it is clean and comfortable. Just a short stay for us (leisure) but in the time we were there, the owners Glenn and Sharon gave us a warm welcome and easy check-in. They were even kind enough to chill a bottle of Prosecco for us since the fridge was off. The service... More

Great hosts. I stayed several nights on business. Owners have recently taken over and are doing things up. Clean, comfortable and although not the most modern up to date motel, I will defiantly stay again. The hosts are genuine people and are making every effort to turn their new business around. This makes me want to support them. A pleasure... More

Stayed here for a night with my family for a recent trip to Rotorua. It's located on strip of hotels near the main town area, only 5 mins driving to restaurants and shops. We've got a two bedroom apt with a kitchen, fridge and full supply of cooking and dining utensils - very handy indeed. The rooms are clean and... More

This definitely needs updating, care needs to be taken over cleanliness, kettle had green growing inside. Fridge very very noisy keeping us awake. No outside light working, no air conditioning or fan. Hosts very helpful and welcoming.

First time staying at Apex. Thoroughly enjoyed my stay. It was a very comfortable unit, with hosts that would bend over backwards to ensure your stay a memorable one. Good central location. Loved the high pitched ceilings.

It's good for average travelers. Good service, nice and warm reception. Facilities are enough for cook and share. comfortable to sleep at night. Just mattresses are little bit soft. Overall good. Thumbs up.

Good value for money, and good service I even checked out a day early and got a partial refund without even asking( don't know anywhere else that would do that) Owners said the rooms will be getting revamped Good location.
