Don't be put off by some of the old reviews. We went and stayed here when the new owners had only just taken over. From the first phone call till the time we left the property was nothing but exceptional. It was a great layout for a family, it was spotlessly clean & nothing was a problem. They checked that...

I recently stayed at this Motel. There are friendly new owners who have recently taken over. and are making lots of improvements. The rooms were really nice and comfortable. Looks like the furnishings are new. Excellent value for money, certainly recommend this motel.

This was my first time staying here, now named "Apex on Fenton" and under new management. I was aware of the negative reviews before staying but the two rooms I booked were both completely renovated and I didn't have any problems with them.

From the outside, looks good, place is run by a jovial Korean woman who makes you feel welcome on arrival. Now those of you that have been to Rotorua will be aware of the ever present as ell of Sulphur and the host of Collingwood Gables conveniently uses this phenomenon to explain away issues in the room. Two TV channels... More

I stayed here for three nights in April 2014. I would have marked it an average had the room not smelled so strongly of cigarettes. When we raised this, they only offered to give us some spray to cover up the smell. It was a bit dirty, the bathroom was clean at least. Towels were stiff as cardboard. Looks like... More

We stayed 2 nights in March 2014. The unit we stayed in was set well back from the main street and was quiet. We can see that the Motel was once a well designed unit, but it was very tired and had not been cleaned properly. There were cobwebs in the bedroom. The switches in the living area were also... More

This motel was in dire need of a complete refurbish. Even just a really good clean would have helped. We had to wash the top lid of the kitchen rubbish bin, it was really dirty, the wallpaper in the toilet was hanging off the wall and some cobwebs in bathroom. The Venetian blinds were all bent at one end!. The... More

Stayed there on the way to Auckland! Only place available due to the long weekend! I can understand why! Not very clean & the bed is hard! I stayed in a standard room, but it still cost me premium rate! Only good thing it was walking distance to the town!
