Polite helpful staff. Clean, well maintained unit. Granddaughter spent a lot of time in the playground. We would definitely book again in the future, we had an enjoyable weekend, and it was good coming back to a comfortable bed, in a nice warm room each night.

Nice place to stay. The service and cleanliness were excellent and within walking distance of several tourist attractions, particulary Skyline Rotorua, Rotorua Canopy Tours, golf etc. I would certainly come back to the Fairy Springs Motel on my next visit to Rotorua.

The room was large and had a big glass door looking out to a lawn. Everything we had expected was there - the bed was comfortable, there was armchairs and kitchen table and chairs, an oven and microwave the toilet was separate from the shower and bathroom sink, in short, modest but vey nice, We have family nearby and intend to stay there every time we visit. Recommended.

We stayed here for the second time now. Superb location for mini golf and the luge. Rooms are a bit dated but large, clean and comfortable. Also warm in winter. Great value for money and the motel manager is very helpful and friendly.

Our friendly host arranged adjoining units so it was easy to socialise. The rooms were roomy and well equipped in the traditional style (but a real toaster, not the finger trap model of old). Our friendly host was on site and available to assist with urgent needs. All units on the ground floor with on site parking. VERY convenient location next to the Sky Line.

I traveled with my mom from the US. We had to stay 3 days in Rotorua to visit the lakes and the hot springs. We booked the cheapest motel that we found on the internet. Our expectation was not high at all. However, we were surprised that the motel is really decent and clean. It is also in a very good location. Walking distance from couple of attractions that we visited. The manager was really friendly. We booked a regular room, but when the manager saw me with my mom, he upgraded use to a 2 bedroom suite for free. He gave us coupons for the city attractions as well. The motel has a hot pool that is nice. I would definitely recommend that place if you are looking for good value and location.

The staff were very welcoming and friendly. The room was very spacious with one queen bed, two twin beds, a kitchen/dining area, a toilet room and a bathroom. The beds were clean even though the room seemed dated. Best part is that there are rabbits that roam around here. (They come from the mini-golf place next door)

Decent sized unit, good facilities. Wifi not working well on day one (fixed overnight). Units are cold, heaters only just adequate. Clear that several units were being occupied on a long-term basis by full-time residents.

Exactly what we were looking for. Drive up to the door, walking distance to the Skyline luge and a clean place with kitchenette for one night. The couple were very friendly and helpful when checking in. We were also picked up from here for an evening excursion without any problems of them finding the place.

The staff were very friendly and welcoming. The rooms are a little dated, but very clean. Enjoyed our stay and would recommend to others. Rooms are a little basic but did have everything we needed. Come enjoy Rotorua.
