It was really comfy, tidy and clean. My girlfriend and I stayed in a double studio room for a night. We enjoyed staying in this motel. All the staff showed us thier smiles and Tim was really kind and helpful. Also, they organise some booking, tour and trips for guests. We would like to stay in this motel again later... More

The gentleman who runs Astray was so helpful - always cheerful and willing to do whatever he could to help. I arrived to check in before my room was ready, so he gladly put me up in another room so I could have a nap after my long trip. Then, when I was stuck in Rotorua due to roads closed... More

I stayed in one of the single private rooms for 2 nights. The single private rooms share a bathroom with a few other rooms, but there are enough showers and toilets that it's hardly noticeable you're sharing. They are small but affordable. The biggest downside to these rooms is that the walls are paper thin. You can can clearly hear... More

For the price you can't beat it. Stayed in the private double room for a few nights and really couldn't ask for a better room for the price. Staff was great at arranging excursions, had a great time horseback riding because of their recommendations. Am going back to Rotorua and will be staying here for sure.

Central. There is a kitchen for backpackers (little used as far as we could see), this place is really more a motel. Packed a lot in one small room, incl table, seats, and fridge. Helpful receptionist. Parking.

Stayed here for 2 nights. The room we had was tiny but effective. It felt like freshmen year of college tiny. It's great because it's in the heart of Rotorua's shops and food places. Few minutes walk to the lake as well. Has parking, person that checked us in was cheery and helpful. Little laundry room area and they'll even... More

The receptionists are very friendly and helpful. They took the initiative to show us our room. Walk up stairs to upper floor. We were offered ground floor at the back, which was quiet at night and comfortable to sleep. The room was neat and clean but a bit small. With two bags lying on the floor, there was barely any...

Great little place, right in the middle of Rotorua. Parking is limited on site, but there is street parking as well. The room was very small, but clean and comfortable. Wifi is free but limited, but there is an iSite a block away with unlimited free wifi. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I would absolutely stay here again,... More
