Wonderful weekend made special by the hospitality of the owners Bill and Sheryl. The location excellent, units clean and the facilities world class. From the moment we rang to book we felt our booking was important. We will definitely return.

Spent two nights here. The room was great, very clean and tidy! The beds were comfy however the pillows were a bit too hard for my liking. The motel is located down the road from Rotorua Central mall and Te Puia. The owners are very lovely and welcoming too! :)

My family stayed here for three nights. It was very clean and comfortable. The office staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Sheryl was especially helpful and advised me and booked our activities. She also helped me plan the next few nights at our next locations. I highly recommend staying here.

Comfortable motel accommodation a short drive out of downtown Rotorua. Well equipped room. Friendly, helpful staff. One of many motels in this area. We felt it gave good value for money. We got a good nights sleep and had all the amenities we needed.

The hosts at this motor lodge are extremely friendly and helpful, and it enjoys a good location on Fenton St. The unit we were in is getting a little tired and is in need of refurbishment, but satisfied our needs; and at least the beds were all comfortable and it was clean.

The Geneva Motor Lodge is situated not far from the centre of Rotorua on the main motel drag. It is mid priced, of moderate quality; clean but looking a bit dated. The management are friendly without being outstanding. All in all the Geneva is middling.

Modern unit in a good location walking distance to town center. Managers were very helpful in providing suggestions of things to do in and around Rotorua. Room is fairly standard with a basic kitchen Microwave and fry pan only, but was all we needed. Few minutes walk to local restaurant was well worth the recommendation from the hosts.
