“Great service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

Stayed at the Fenton Court Motel for a short break just before Christmas. Owners were extremely helpful, and went out of their way to make sure everything was ok. Breakfast was included in our deal, choice of cooked or continental, and delivered to the rooms very promptly. Excellent covered spa area out the back (bottom units), and very large bathrooms. It was very quiet when we stayed. Only downside is that there are no cooking facilities (in our unit, anyway), so for a longer stay this would be a pain. All round excellent place and highly recommended.

Room Tip: Rooms with a large courtyard and spa pool are only available on the ground floor.

I stayed here about a month ago on business and it was great. Just came through Rotorua with my wife and we stayed here - once again the hosts were super friendly and accommodating. They locked our bikes up for safe keeping, and the breakfast that comes with your room, comes TO your room in the morning! I would recommend this motel without any hesitation.

Have just stayed 3 nights over the busy Xmas period and was impressed. Ther 2 bedroom units are well decked out with everything you need in the kitchen and have plenty of extra room. Beds were really comfortable and the units clean although a little dated. The covered hot tub in the unit was awesome although allow about an hour for it to fill. Karen & Terry are great hosts and nothing is too much trouble for them. All in all a very pleasant stay

Although the decor is a little dated, we couldn't fault this motel. The owners, Karen and Terry, we're really friendly and ever so helpful. Their advice was always right on. The free shuttle was a great bonus if you didn't want to drive. Karen even did our washing for us, for no charge. Terry's recommendation of the the right fishing charter was great. My husband and son came back with 8 large trout. The guy even smoked and vacuum sealed each one. The best thing was we were able to then freeze it and bring it all back to Australia. Customs were absolutely fine with this.

Grandson and I had decided to stay the night, called into the I site (information centre) and they suggested this motel which I am glad they did as it was great.

On checking in asked about laundry and the lady said no problems just bring it in and we will do it for you (NO CHARGE). Unit was spacious, clean with bonus of a spa in a small courtyard, breakfast was plentiful, large walk in shower with plenty hot water would stay again if in NZ.

Wonderful hosts Karen & Terry made my stay a wonderful experience. They were ever helpful with advice. I appreciated the cooked breakfast in the mornings which saved time going out to look for breakfast before setting out on my hiking trips. My room was clean and really there was nothing that I could fault.
I certainly would not mind staying at this motel should I make another visit to NZ.

We were only staying for one night but we were made to feel very welcome and nothing was too much trouble. The unit was very comfortable and spacious. The spa and breakfast were an added bonus. Very quiet and handy to everything. Great value for money!!
