Staff were very helpful, friendly and offered discounts to some tours and attractions! Parking is just in front of your unit, the room is huge with fully equipped kitchen facilities. Room is comfortable, clean and well-maintained. There is a hot pool in the motel and it is located near supermarket and restaurants. Highly recommended!

picked this motel due to location, a short walk from the luge or canopy ziplines. rooms clean and have what you need. could not close back window as timber aged and warped, so got a lot of road noise all night. no air con but can open front and back doors for a breeze but also let in the noise....

Wonderful place. We stayed for 6 nights while visiting different locations around Rotorua and Taupo. It's very cosy and clean. The beds were comfortable and the kitchen had everything we needed. The host were very nice and welcoming, and the service was great

Fairy Springs will always be our first port of call if staying overnight in Rotorua. They provide spacious room for our family. The units are pristine clean and comfortable. The owners are awesomely friendly and after our first stay know our name now when we call to book. Would highly recommend for family requiring comfortable accomodation.

Although at first impressions it looks a little run-down this is a great choice for accommodation in Rotorua. The rooms are really clean and spacious. It is within a few mintues walk of many of the main activities including Rotorua Canopy Tour, Skyline, Rainbow Springs and Mini golf. The hosts are friendly and helpful.

Spaceous family units with all the necessary convenients for a good night's stay. Handy location to the Gondola as it's next door. This is not a motel for the picky traveler as it is a an older style motel and for those on a budget however I think that the owners have done a great job at providing great value...

We spent just one night here, and it was fine, but we probably wouldn't go back. The room was dated, though pretty clean. The kitchenette was nice and even included an oven. One bad thing was that the heat was on a timer, so we could only turn it on for an hour at a time. Not especially convenient for...

Not fancy but very friendly reception, clean and well equipped room. Small kids play area. Big screen TV. Coffee maker with bag of real coffee and small carton fresh milk was appreciated. Can't fault it for location right next to Skyline.

Fantastic motel, very clean and tidy, and very close to the main attraction in Rotorua. Walking from motel, directly into Rotorua gondola is priceless. Next time we visit Rotorua, this motel will be our first choose. Strongly recommended.

There are so many places to choose from in Rotorua. We chose Fairy Springs because the people there were so welcoming and the rooms were clean, with no fuss. This place is right beside Rotorua Skyline. We walked there. The manager also organized a courtesy bus for us to go to the Mitai Maori cent. Great stay thanks.
