“Pleasant Stay”
Reviewed September 24, 2013

We stayed two very enjoyable nights at the Boulevard. The check in and welcome was great and very easy. Our studio room, right next to the heated swimming pool was clean and very comfortable. We spent a very enjoyable two days with this motel as our base in Rotorua. We will be back.

Stayed here for a few nights whilst visiting Rotorua & Taupo. The room was nice, especially as there was 6 of us and it didn't feel small. The facilities were excellent as they had free laundry with washing powder and a drying room, however the highlight was the hot pool, at 37 degrees it was very welcoming at the end of a busy day. The mineral pools and spa were also good. Although dated in decor, the games room was a good place to play pool and not something you find in all motels. We ate in the restaurant one night and the food was good. If you are planning a trip to Rotorua, then this is worth it, 10 minute walk to town and a good night stay. Would stay again!

We found this motel to be a brilliant place to stay. The people were friendly and helpful; the rooms were clean and tidy and the whole complex is great ! We had a lovely swim in the heated pool and made the most of the private pools. The owners took the time to personalise our stay and help us out when needed. The restaurant here also serves delicious meals. All round we could not fault the Boulevard Motel - a great place. Thank you so much :-)

Room Tip: The family units at the rear are very spacious; certainly a home away from home for us !

This was an average motel. You take you choice and take your chance with this type of motel. There are several in this part of town. The staff were welcoming. the room was adequate, nothing special. There was a strong smell of sulfur in the air, but that's part of Rotorua. The motel had a small but pleasant warm pool and private naturally hot private spa closets, both welcome at the end of a busy day. This motel was nothing special, neither was is unpleasant. It did for a night.

This was clean and close to town but needs a complete update on decor in rooms, also the rooms need air conditioning. Our room had no power in 1 wall so the tv in the bedroom didnt work or the power point in the bathroom. The decor was very old and the furniture was old and falling apart. I wouldnt stay there again.

Our stay almost got off to a very bad start when we arrived and the two-bedroom unit for two couples we had carefully ordered had been given away, and we were left with one double bedroom and the other bed separated from the kitchen by a curtain. Luckily they had two adjacent double one-bedroom units available which they gave to us a the same overall price for the booked unit. From then on things were great. Clean and pleasant with access to four mineral pools that are private to the motel. There is also a small swimming pool but it is nearly as hot as the hot pools, which was a shame at the height of summer. As Rotorua Motels go it is one of the less tacky ones and turned out to be good value.

Room Tip: Be very specific about your room requirements and don't allow them to change from your booked ro...

The unit we stayed in for one night was comfortable, clean and warm. There was a strong smell in the unit of sulfur, which is usual for Rotorua.
The unit could probably do with an upgrade, but would recommend it to any future travellers wishing to stay there.
