Enjoyed a weekend away with three friends we found the Silver Fern very comfortable and stylish , the spa pool was a bonus. The motel was handy to the shop and restaurants. Very friendly operators thanks for a great weekend

My husband booked this as a birthday surprise. What a gem of a place. Stylishly decorated with your own spa pool. Lucky enough to enjoy a massage from Louise - excellent. Highly recommended.

This is a good quality Motel that has a lovely ambience. The rooms are well appointed with modern furniture and furnishings, clean and tidy with good heating which is essential in Rotorua in winter. The rooms have a good size hot pool per unit that is filled fresh each time you use it. There is a simple TV/ DVD system in the room we stayed in but it functioned well without having to be charged to watch movies. The managers are very helpful whilst allowing you totally enjoy your private get-away.

Firstly, don't let the smell of the local attraction put you off! It was very convenient for visiting the thermal pools the morning after our stay.
The room was fully furbished for the independent traveller with kitchen/lounge area for cooking/eating own meals as we did on this occasion having provisions left over from camping, this did make it a cost effective stay. The bathroom was large with it's own spa bath which we filled and enjoyed, my thought though is that the pumps were very nosy and did this disturb others (next door/ downstairs). In the morning when showering this did flood the bathroom as the lip of the bath came over the spary of the shower. Bad design.

After staying at the Silver Fern for 3 nights during a recent holiday it is definitely a place we will be using again in the future. The owners welcomed us with a smile and were more than helpful throughout our stay. Apparently this motel has recently been refurbished and it was money well spent. The rooms are great and everything is clean and fresh. The breakfasts we had were beautiful. Having previously paid more in other motels in Rotorua that were nowhere near this standard we look forward to many more stays here in the future.

The Silver Fern Motor Inn is recently renovated hotel that I'd consider more of a holiday apartment complex than a motor inn (this is for everyone who thinks of a trailer park when they hear "motor inn"). We had a studio apartment that had a kitchen, hot tub, shower and huge bed with very clean and comfortable sheets. Our room was IMMACULATE and tastefully decorated. Allan and Shirley are great hosts and really made our stay in Rotorua a memorable experience. The hotel is a good distance (about a 20-minute walk) from the city center, and there are some large grocery stores along the way we picked up some tasty NZ produce for very reasonable prices. The area is safe and quiet.
