We stayed at Gwendoline Court Motel for 3 nights in June 2016. Even though the hotel needed some improvements (as there was a few holes in shower and kitchen needed a bit of love) the spa just made the hotel so much better! It was so nice to just relax after a day out site seeing in our spa, especially... More

This motel was booked for us and we stayed 10 days while on business. It was clean and conveniently located, as Rotorua is a small town and most activities are convenient. The motel in 1950s vintage and has not been updated. Towels were changed daily, but beds were made only occasionally. The back door to the rudimentary spa didn't lock.... More

The motor lodge was booked by our friends and therefore when we checked the Trip reviews it was a bit too late. The owners were obviously new as they were not savvy with the systems etc. However Anne greeted us and was very friendly and polite. The rooms needed a good airing as the carpet stench was quite strong. In... More

We stayed here during April 2016 and found our unit to be short on the basics. The kitchen was very basic with a toaster, kettle, microwave and a hotplate making cooking meals hard. Crockery and cutlery was only for 3 people yet we booked as a family of 5. The beds were comfortable enough after a day spent walking the... More

Just looking through all the reviews this morning and oh my goodness, you would think by now that they would be doing something to improve the standards of this place. The plus's - very few: staff were pleasant most of the... More
