There is nothing fancy about the Gibson Court Motel, you get what you are paying for. Its fair value for the price. My wife loved the private mineral pools at the back of each unit which are filled with fresh and very hot geothermal mineral water. It is water straight out of the ground and is just loaded with mineral... More

We loved the Gibson Court Motel. It may a little dated but it was clean, had comfy beds and every afternoon/evening we came back May (the owner) had filled our mineral spa for us. Best way to end our very busy days. Wouldn't stay anywhere else in Rotorua now.

Average motel. Had all nessities needed, bonus was the mineral fill your own hot tub in the middle of Winter! Pet Friendly so had our little dog stay with us. Quiet location and handy to all shops, restaurants & supermarkets. Would recommend to stay at this motel as you got what you pay for. Staff were friendly & helpful if... More

Because it's off the Fenton Street motel strip we discovered this haven quite by chance. After a very friendly greeting we were invited to inspect a unit and are delighted to be staying here. It is spotlessly clean, spacious, with its private courtyard and spa for total quiet relaxation. All at an affordable rate. I would like to come back... More

It is high season, and a place to find not always easy. I found this place by coincidence. It has everything you need but basic. If you look for a reasonable place, go for it. Don't be too meticulous about cleanliness. It is about one and a half kilometre from the city centre it is away from the main road... More

Although the rooms were not clean and tidy a bit but as soon as we asked the staff they made immediate arrangements for us.. Besides this the pools were cool and tidy. Overall a good place for a budget stay!

Electric blanket not working on the single bed, so this also got replaced. Had to remake the bed up, mattress protector filthy, absolutely... More

Room was being cleaned as we arrived but we couldn't see where in some places, spider webs in the bathroom and the toilet had dirt in the corners. It felt icky. Mineral pool out the back was great esp knowing that it is from the bores and not just a spa pool. WIFI was patchy but like others found it... More

We are regulars here. The mineral pools are super, especially the one in room 9. The beds are clean and comfy and the location is close to most things, but especially the mountain bike track which is just up the road and around the corner. Some folk who are fussy and worry about the age of furnishings may turn their... More
