Booked in for 2 nights and paid $85 a night and checked out yesterday. The room was clean, tidy, and provided alot more amenities than I expected. The location was brilliant - any of the reviews that have stated it was too far out of town are completed unfounded! It was probably a 1 minute drive from the middle of town, a 30 second drive to the nearest Countdown, minutes away from any family restaurants and approximately a 10-15 minute drive to any of the furthest tourist attractions. Yes, the balcony overlooks a BP station, but I didn't find it a problem, it wasn't at all noisy for me or my 12 year old daughter, plus I enjoyed taking a stroll to the Wild Bean cafe for a coffee. Plenty of parking. They provide a black folder with admin bits'n'pieces but most importantly, what you can do around Rotorua - free & pay-for attractions, very helpful.
Tim the owner, was friendly, generous & humourous, and seemed genuinely interested in our activities around Rotorua.
After reading a few of the negative reviews here - what were you expecting for the price you paid??! Why bother going to any form of accomodation if you are out to discredit it - stay home then!! I felt it was value for money plus more! Thoroughly enjoyed our stay here, and will be coming back again without hesitation! Highly recommend this place :) Thanks Rotorua Motor Lodge!
