Stayed two nights at the Arista in a spacious unit with its own spa. Tastefully decorated with a comfy bed and all the facilities anyone would need. Despite the depths of an NZ winter, the unit was toasty warm! The owners, a married couple with a young family, could not be more helpful. They gave us suggestions on places to... More

I cannot speak highly enough of this Motel that quickly became our holiday home... 3 young kiddies in tow we stayed in one of the family mezzanine units. It couldn't have been better!! The playground, the thermal hot tub after a day of adventure tired them out at the end of the day! A huge thanks to Annemarie & Mike... More

Poor Wifi reception. Majority of my room can not receive wifi. That make my life difficult, I have to go certain places in order to get on-line. Over all , the room is good, everything else is good. The tv shows are awesome, but for me, the WIFI is more important

We stayed in room 15. We arrived late, but called ahead and Mike walked over and showed us in. He was always there when we had any questions! He even offered us dinner (but we had just eaten) when we arrived. We stayed there for 2 nights and he made sure we had plenty to do! He made us a... More

We recently stayed at this property, the room was fantastic for a family of four. Within half an hour of our arrival, the owner Mike, had a map out marking all the best places for us to visit in the area. He booked a couple of activities for us (with discounts). Would definitely recommend to anyone. We only wish that... More

Consider here before anywhere else! The owners (Mike and Anne Marie) are wonderful people, and will treat you like family. They are extremely knowledgeable (ask them for places to go and even discounts) and made the stay even more enjoyable. The room we stayed in was almost like a mini-house - spacious, clean, and well-kept. Located close to a lot... More

From the moment we pulled up and checked in we felt so welcome. We were personally walked to our room and shown around. The next morning Bruce directed us to the best places to go and see, and he worked his magic to get us in for massages that same day, even though most places were fully booked. I wish... More

I agree with everything everyone else has said. We stayed one night, but its the first motel I've stayed in Rotorua that I'd definitely come back too. Nice to have space when travelling with 3 kids - and the rooms are so clean, comfortable & warm (especially on a very cold night). The renovation is very well done. Spa was... More

Not only do you get a well appointed hotel room with everything in it that you could possibly want, but you also get brilliant service with great local knowledge. Mike gave us great spots to see that we would not have known about, and have turned out some of best things we saw in the whole of NZ. But do... More

We really enjoyed our short stay at Arista. Mike's level of service was outstanding. Nothing was too much trouble. The room was modern and wall heaters kept it nice and warm – (loved the electric blankets too). The location was just a short drive to the city centre. Perhaps an automatic night light on the stairwell would be good for... More
