We stayed in this motel in June and it was everything we wanted. It was very clean and had all the amenities. It was in a very convenient location, close to the supermarkets and plenty of places to eat or drink. Front desk was very welcoming and helpful. Would definitely stay here again.

A fantastic place to overnight. The rooms are large with all the amenities provided. Car parking outside, a friendly service at reception. It was an easy walk to town, just two blocks away and if needed two large supermarkets closer.

We had a very comfortable stay for 2 nights. The beds were comfortable and there was a spa bath for the kids. The motel manager was very nice and friendly. It was very close to the city so didn't take long to drive/walk to bars/restaurants/the pool.

I tried a few motels before but this time I decided to come back to Rose City Motel because I stayed at this motel around 13 years ago.At first I thought the motels in fitzherbert avenue would tend to be noisy but this was proved wrong. In the evening the room was very quiet and you can't seem to hear... More

The staff was excellent. Able to do laundry, had breakfast delivered to the room every morning, even the night before so my husband could have his breakfast before leaving early for work. It's right near city center, the mall, and restaurants. Only drawback is wifi is limited to 200 free MB per day, but that's seems to be the norm... More
