I specified a ground floor unit because I knew the building was on 2 levels and I would have a problem with lots of steps. the room was in immaculate condition and there was a large bathroom with shower. Ground floor units have a spa pool in your own courtyard. Upper level rooms have a bath with spa jets. Staff...

The motel is in a great location, but is run down and dirty. It's near sulphur bay, so it you'll get whiffs of the smell once in a while. Reviews were good, which is why we picked it, but it's worth paying more to stay at a place where you can walk bare foot on the carpet.

Room was immaculate, quiet, bed was awesome. I stayed on the upper level, there was a hottub in the room, I didn't use it, but it looked inviting! Plunge coffee maker, fridge. I took the bus to Rotorua and the hotel was about a mile down the main street, 20 minutes walk. I choose this hotel cuz it looked 1/2...

The location is quite central to some attractions. The staff are friendly and helpful. The staff responded very fast when we needed more consumables. The pots and pans to cook with were of a good non-stick quality. Unlimited free Wi-Fi is also available. The area is nice and quiet at night. The rooms, furniture and decor is outdated. The bathroom...

Clean and tidy. Stayed in a spa room and loved it. Would recommend for its location and friendly hosts. Found this motel to be quiet and comfortable. Plenty of room and well equipped kitchen. Reasonable price for this time of year.

Stayed here for two nights on a recent trip to Rotorua. The lady who checked me in was very friendly and helpful. The room was rather basic, however very clean. Could do with an update- the microwave is yellowed from age and the carpet is very well worn. The shower over the Spa bath arrangement reminded me of a playground...

I didnt want to give this location a overall rating as it was one of those situations where multiple parties were involved.....

This was the first motel accommodation on our extensive trip to NZ and we stayed two nights. The room was clean and fine. The spa bath didn't look very inviting, positioned as it was in what looked like a corrugated iron roofed shed, accompanied by a large number of crawling insects so we gave it a miss. I'm sure other...
