The lodge is close to some of Rotorua's main attractions as well as being close to a golf course petrol station cafe and bowling alley and is one of the first motels as you enter Rotorua from the south. Tim and Faith the owner/managers are very friendly and helpful and will offer you good advice on what to see and do and can also help you with bookings. The lodge is a good place to stay more than a few days as we found out we stayed for 7 days and enjoyed our stay there is also a hot pool to soak in at the end of a hard day.

These guests stayed several days and clearly did not miss the hard work we put in to running this motel. It is very good to be appreciated and we thank them for their comments.

We had a good sized family room that slept five with comfort ! The room was clean with a good size kitchen but could have done with a few more things to cook with ! Free Wifi was great and two clean hot pools downstairs and also a laundry for washing . Not a Bad stay !the only thing that could have made it better was dry towels everyday and more loo paper left in the toilet !

Thanks for the positive comments. We are happy to provide clean towels each day if the unwanted ones are left on the bathroom floor as requested in the compendium. When they are left lying/hanging around we assume the guest is showing admirable 'green' qualities and respect that. The toilet roll dispenser holds two rolls which is usually ample for most visits, and we apologise if any of you were left short! We generally respond immediately when shortcomings are pointed out to us. That said, we do not pretend to provide the same level of comfort five or four star establishments offer AND nor do we charge at the same level.

This place was a big surprise on our new zealand trip (in July) because we booked budget and didn't expect much. The motor lodge is right next to a garage,( we heard very little noise) but with all the travelling we were so tired and slept like logs in a very nicely decorated, homely and cozy lg room with a big flat screen tv and heater to keep us warm. Tim the owner was more than helpful and advised us of the the best places to visit in rotrorua on our two day visit. The geiser park next door was excellent, so was the polynesian spa with 6 pools, and the evening maori village show and dinner where they turn up on canoes was excellent. There is a golf course right across the road from motel. Tim was always welcoming and genuinely likes people and spent time explaining things esp to chinese foreign travellers on a first time overseas trip. We took all his recommendations and would definiitely come back and stay here again and will tell all our chinese friends what a great place it is especially Mr Tim, who is so kind and funny and is welcome to China anytime.

Room Tip: if travelling there in winter pick a room, where the sun is shining in the morning so you can have b...

A basic room with small kitchen.
Clean facilities that would benefit from upgrading.
Main bedroom needs a couple of bedside tables.
Overpriced for what it was but it was Raggamiffin weekend and the only motel left with rooms.
Friendly staff.

This motel is a bit dated but is I believe gradually being upgraded. It is set back off the rather busy main road, but still suffers some road noise especially from lorries calling at the service station next door.
Our room was very satisfactory, but would benefit from a few hooks around the place. We came in soaking wet one day and could find nowhere to hang wet things.
There was an excellent new large screen TV in the room which was useful for the wet day.
The motel is within walking distance of Te Puia cultural centre and the Whakarewarewa thermal area.
Tim was very helpful advising us about what to see in the area.

This motel is what it is! Our very reasonable tariffs reflect in part our prime position by a road, but then a Motor Lodge without that connection would be a little odd. The occasional traffic noise apart, we have managed to produce quality rooms at budget prices, and long term, double-glazing is on our wish list for sure. However in the short term we do provide free earplugs for the light sleeper, and how many motels have you visited that have done that for you?
