“Beautiful decor..spacious bedroom..very comfy bed and pillows..”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2011

Stayed 2 nights at this lovely Motel. The owners were very helpful and friendly nothing was too much trouble. The room was spacious and immaculate. Hot tub great way to unwind after a long drive.Wonderful huge comfy bed and pillows. Kitchenette with everything you need to make a simple meal. Lovely large bathroom. Balcony had a small table and chairs so you could sit out for breakfast etc.
Lots of information leaflets in reception and help with recommendations on what to visit and where to eat. A couple of places within walking distance and good choice of eateries in town just a few minutes down the road. All in all a FANTASTIC place to stay. We would thoroughly recommend this accommodation to anyone.

It was our first time to Rotorua and l am so glad we found Silver Fern to stay in , the accomodation is of a high standard and even though on a busy road we had a l bedroom suite and we did not hear a thing. If we return to Rotorua we will definately stay at Silver Fern.

My husband and I stayed at the Silver Fern for 2 nights after seeing positive reviews on Tripadvisor. The room was spotless and large with lots of windows and a kitchenette. The surprise was the bathroom! Ours was huge with a shower and a big hot tub. We had planned to go to the thermal baths but saved our money and soaked in the tub instead!
Alan and Shirley, the owners, couldn't have been more helpful with advice about what activities were best. They were also very welcoming and helped us understand what the Kiwi reputation for friendliness was all about. They have 2 bikes which we borrowed to ride into town. There is also a free washing machine - dryer is coin-op.
By the way, we were hesitant to go to Roturua as it seemed like it might be too touristy for us. We found the town delightful and if you pick your activities away from the crowds, you'll find the town a pleasure.

Would recommend this motel. It's on the main 'motel' road which is about a mile long and so is a little too far to walk into town - however the owners gave us a lift in to town for our dinner which was great. Our apartment looked practically new and was very impressive. The spa bath was enormous! We used the laundry facilities which were very efficient. The decor was very modern and crisp - we had a one bedroom apartment with a sofa bed in the lounge. This was totally adequate for a party of 3 adults.

We stayed 4 nights in this motel, the location is in the 'motel street' of Rotorua.
To get to the center of Rotorua it is better to take the car, but they also have bicycles you could lend for free.

It is a very stylish, clean and nice motel, we were greeted very friendly and got a few reccomendations for dinner, trips tec. The spa bath in our room was great after a long day of sightseeing.

The breakfast was cooked and served fresh and was well worth the price (we stayed in other motels during our trip, where this was not the case.

We would definitely stay here again!!!
