The room was very clean and spacious. Great wifi. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The hotel is located away from the main streets of the town so it's a bit of a walk otherwise an easy drive. Close to many places of interest. I highly recommend this hotel.

I was honestly blown away by how clean and tidy everything was. I truly felt like I was the first person to have stayed there which is what all hotels should strive for. Check in was a breeze. Staff were friendly. Rooms were spacious and comfortable. Definetly recommend this place. Great value for money.

We discovered this one online and after reading Trip Advisor reviews. This place is a little gem. Definitely one that we will be coming back to for our future stays. Owners are friendly and accommodating. It is at the end of town though if you have a vehicle it is only minutes from everywhere. You can walk to town if... More

This is a quaint hotel that's situated in the perfect location (Well for me it is). It takes the off-ramp on to Marquarita Street and then onto Ward street. Greeted by friendly staff. This was a conference trip, so it served its purpose of being out of the busyness of Rotorua yet close to attend the meeting. Close to restarants.... More

Traveling the country for our honeymoon and doing it on a budget has seen us stay in some basic kind of places. This place is really affordable and wow awesome clean, tidy, warm, modern way more than we expected. Don't think I want to leave. Will definitely be back to this one and totally recommend staying here. A+++++

Had a very good experience staying at New Castle Motor Lodge. The owners went out of their way to accomodate us, were friendly and obliging. I would not hesitate to recommend this motor lodge to others. And would certainly be heading straight back to this place should I ever be in Rotorua and needing a bed again.
