We absolutely loved this motel but only because we had incredible views of the Pohutu Geyser and accompanying mud pools. It's a real shame that the owners don't make the most of their situation and improve the place.
The communal areas, stairs etc. are in quite a poor state of repair and, when we arrived, we weren't particularly impressed. But the room was perfectly comfortable and clean and the continental breakfast, delivered to our room as requested, was good.
The first evening, we dined in the motel restaurant, which was empty but actually very good. We didn't attend the motel's Maori hangi ceremony as they held it in a conference room and we didn't think it would be particularly authentic!
Don't expect this to be the nicest hotel you've ever stayed in but do enjoy the unique setting. The centre of Rotorua (a five minute drive away - not easily walkable, unfortunately) is really lovely and there is plenty in the area to keep you busy.
