What really makes this place so great are the owners, Annemarie and Mike. They are the most cheerful, welcoming people and offer enthusiastic and helpful advice. We stayed two nights, the first night we had rather noisy neighbours in the room next door but the second night was fine. If you do happen to have a noisy group nearby the walls are not very soundproof! Other than this, I have nothing but praise - huge rooms, and all amenities for a lovely comfortable stay. I would stay here again if I return to Rotorua. Thanks Mike and Annemarie, we had a fabulous stay and will recommend you to anyone travelling to Rotorua!

Hi there Thanks very much for your review. We certainly love our Aussies coming to stay. As for the noisy neighbors, this is certainly not a a common issue but if this does occur we must insist that guests phone us and let us know that there is issue. This is important as you are all paying guests and there to get a good night sleep. We are glad that you had a great time in Rotorua. We certainly love living here.

Hi there, thanks for your review. Our large rooms are well suited for groups like yours. We certainly have added that extra flexibility with split kings down stairs in all the family rooms for multiple single people. Thanks again.

What I love about this hotel is that the parking is right at the door of your apartment. It's really important for me because it made loading and unloading the luggages so easy. The apartment is big and spacious for the 3 of us. The kitchen is well equipped with everything you need to cook. It even has a jacuzzi(!) but I'm just too beat to try it. It is located a few mins drive away from the local supermarket and the different attractions that Rotorua has to offer. Definitely worth your money. Friendly staff and there are even DVDs for you to borrow if you are bored!

Hi there, Thanks very much for your nice review. Parking is one thing that is not mentioned much on our reviews, but you are right. We have the added advantage that you can park your car right in front of most the motel rooms. Some guests even turn up in multiple cars and we always find room for them as well. It great that you found us convenient and great value for money. Just what we like to hear. Thanks again for your review.

We spent two nights at this friendly place with its spacious, rather luxurious rooms and hosts that were welcoming and friendly and most helpful in giving advice and sharing their knowledge of Rotorua and environs with us. Highly recommended.

Thank you for taking the time to review us. For our overseas guests we are certainly good at finding the guest interests and budgets and making up an agenda and then sending you out. Rotorua is certainly a great place to come and visit to explore nature like you did.

Our family enjoyed our stay at Arista over the weekend. We stayed in a mezzanine room which had ample room for the four of us. The kids loved having the upstairs to themselves - as well as the new release DVDs they could borrow for the upstairs tv. We all loved the private spa! The kitchen was well furnished, allowing us to have several meals in our room. Service was warm and perfect! Highly recommended.

Thanks very much for your nice review and we are glad you had a nice time. We certainly agree with the concept of the kids having a TV up stairs leaving Mum and Dad down to relax. And the spa’s are massive! Which is certainly an added bonus for our guests. Thanks again for the review.
