“"Great Overnight Facility"”
Reviewed March 7, 2012

I have known the Bradshaws for 21 years and have spend many pleasant stays being treated as one of the family there with my family. On this occasion I had visited Rotorua on business and booked a solo studio unit for an overnight stay. Yes the facilities are basic and the shower/bathroom/toilet area is very small but in my case more than adequate. They have always offered SKY and now have the latest flat screen TVs. Thumbs-up for me this time is the free broadband. I was able to skype my family with no problem at all. Value for money is excellent. Do have a meal at the Boulevard Restaurant and try award-winning Oppies. Great!

We went to rotorua over th Auckland anniversary weekend. We would not choose to stay here but everything good was booked out. Looked ok on the reviews and websites so we booked for 2 nights 3 days. Bare basics. Rooms were small and had beds crammed in there to the point we couldn't open the wardrobes! The bathroom was small and the the shower was old and decaying. The furniture was tired and uncomfortable. The spa was dirty and the mineral pools quite sad. They came to clean the room but it wasn't cleaned properly - we didnt even realise it HAD been cleaned! bed covers just tossed back, towels and sugar etc not replaced. Icing on the cake was that I was told to go get the new towels myself. we bought icecream and placed it in the freezer to come back and find the freezer did not work properly. Will never stay here again. Stay at your own risk

My husband & I stopped the night in Rotorua (on our way to Auckland) and had with us our 5 year old son. The Motel was fully booked out (as were most places on the main strip were booked out & this was our 5th attempt to find on the spot accommodation)apart from 2 rooms and I choose the room with a 2 seater couch for our son to sleep on.

The lady who greeted us on reception was absolutely lovely and very accommodating to our needs, giving us sheets, blankets and a pillow to make our son up a bed on the 2 seater lounge.

I must say our bed was VERY comfortable - and that makes such a difference. Rooms were clean and tidy.

We very much enjoyed a soak in the private thermal pools on the property and our son enjoyed the outdoor heated pool - all were clean and well maintained.

Would definately stay at this motel again

Generally smallish rooms. The front room had a couch for sitting, TV, kitchen, and table with chairs. The back room had a queen bed, with tiny nightstands attached to the headboard. Between was a hall with a bathroom off the hall. Tourist town so the price was high for what you get, but not un-expected, especially between Christmas and New Year. The pool was small, but seemed to be enjoyed by several guests (quietly). Very comfortable bed! The kitchen had a sink, microwave, refrigerator, electric kettle, toaster, and dishes, but no burners.

This was a nice motel with very friendly/helpful staff. They also had some good facilities including mineral pools and were close to the town and many other attractions around the area.

What a great place to stay with a family of 6 with 3 young kids that doesn't break the bank.

The paintwork needs a touch up here and there but for young kids in Rotorua this place is fantastic. A thermally heated swimming pool that had us swimming in autumn, spa pool and mineral pools, games room, playground and a lovely room that could fit us all without breaking the bank. Also very well located in Rotorua and close to shops and supermarkets.

Well worth a visit and highly recommend it. Also very helpful and friendly owners
