“Loved my stay!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2008

After reading the reviews in tripadvisor, I decided to book this motel for 2 nights. I'm glad I did because the motel is not a let-down! It's a terrific place to stay in Rotorua. Place is central along the most happening street in Rotorua (i.e Fenton). It only takes 5 minutes drive to the lake , and hmm there's isnt much to see around the lake Rotorua anyway. The motel is modern and clean, properly heated with good supply of amenities. (I'm quite amazed at the thoughtfulness of the details actually ... they have everything including make-up remover and the towels were in 2 colors so you can easily identify which is yours and which is your roomie's ). You can borrow DVDs and XBox! from the receptions..... haha! The room was properly heated and have a small kitchen, plus there's a jacuzzi in the bathroom ^-^. All these for less than 150 nzd per night! ( I forget how much exactly). The hosts were friendly and helpful , even keeping a lookout for our shuttle bus from Mitai village, outside the hotel when it was drizzling and cold! The airport is around 10 minutes away. I've looked around at some other hotels that I'd considered ...the novotel , the regalpalms .... and I'm really glad I picked Executive at Fenton in the end :)

  • Liked — the room, the location and the price! and the hosts hhh
  • Disliked — none actually ... they've outdone it.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2008

We booked after favourable reviews on Tripadvisor. Motel is fairly new and well located on the main motel "strip" in Rotorua. You get use to the sulphur smell. We were just passing through for one night on 2 January - it does pay to book ahead because the "No Vacancy" sign wnet up after we checked in. This place was handy to restaurants and shops - there is one almost next door, although we didn't try it. Supermarkets are just down the road. Not too far walk of you want to (it's about 1km from the main Info Centre).

Stayed for 1 night only, wished it had been more.
Shown different rooms for our party, well impressed.

Spotless, well equiped. This is quiet a new motel, everything was in lovely condition. Separate bedroom, patio doors to yard with your own hot tub, all the rooms had an outside hot tub. Lounge also had large bed, table, chairs, mocrowave etc. Lovely bathroom and toiletries.

It was on the main street in Rotorua, Fenton Street, but could not hear any noise, is 4* qualmark and reasonably priced at $134 dollars when we stayed in November. I would say you could walk into the town from here a steady 10 minutes walk.

Would stay again.

The motel is on the main Fenton rd into Rotorua, opposite the racecourse. The studios are spacious, clean and warm! The bathroom was big with a huge spa bath! The hosts couldn't do any more for us if they had tried. The prices are flexible if you turn up and barter(we got a bargain).The rooms have internet which was $10 a day. I would say definitely look at this motel if going to Rotorua.
