“Great Night.”
Reviewed July 28, 2013

I booked one night for myself and my partner, who turned 50 the day we stayed so it was a special day.
Karen one of our hosts was so good, she had a bottle of wine in our room on arrival and drove us to Skyline Restaurant and returned for us later. We were given a late check out the next day. The room was clean and quite comfortable. Only down side was that there was no kitchen sink to wash any dishes,glasses but then on saying that we had a lovely private spa out the back of our unit.This unit was clean and the bath towels fluffy and sheets good.(I am a cleaner at a motel so know what to look for.)
I would recommend Fenton Court to anyone and we would go back again. Terry our other host was just as helpful on the phone when ringing to book.Thankyou for your friendly service and been so helpful with directions especially when i got lost!

Room Tip: This room was quiet as it was down the back off the road.One of the ones behind the office.

This is the second time, ive stayed at fenton court, and no way will it be the last!!
The motel is spick and span, warm rooms, comfortable beds, lovely modern linen with plush soft towels.
Each room has its own spa. Plus the 1 bedroom units are a good size. (We purchased a 1bedroom unit)

The Fenton Court is relaxing from as soon as you walk into the office, its a great place for a weekend, or longer. (Would recommend the mini golf beside the gondolas.)

Karen and Terry have 18 rooms in their complex, each room is quiet and they have wifi the guests can use.

Karen is the van driver for the motel, so if your heading out for a meal, just give Karen a call. :-)

We loved the giant spa bath in our upstairs unit. Nice decor and great coffee in the room. Very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed our two night stay. They even have a courtesy van available if you need one. I asked for extra milk right in the middle of the netball game on telly and she was very polite and obliging! We definately recommend fenton court as a great place to stay, friendly, good value for money, warm room , comfy bed, excellent Internet access too, unlimited.

A great spot to stay, spacious rooms for a family to use, well appointed kitchen and awesome outdoor spa area. The hosts are very welcoming and remember us from previous stays. Value for money with the rooms serviced every day. The shower has great pressure and instant hot water.

A very nice motel, staff were helpful and friendly. The room we had was a ground floor one with an undercover spa bath in the garden, very nice. Room facilities were a bit lacking, there was a kettle, microwave, toaster, cutlery and plates etc but no kitchen sink to was anything. A bit basic. Had to washup in bathroom sink which seemed to us to be a bit below the high standard of the many other motels that we stayed at in NZ. Loved Rororua though, so any negatives about Fenton Court facilities easily forgotten.

Me and my family stayed at Fenton Court Motel for two night first week of Jan 2013. The room was spacious/clean and value for money which i paid. The cooked break fast was excellent. The staff at the motel were freindly and helpfull (can do attitude) also you get full kitchnett/plasma tv with sky channels and spa bath. It is easy to find if you are coming from Taupo after the first round about from Fenton street on to your left hand side. We will definitly recomend this place to freinds and family.

Room Tip: On my opinion all rooms are good
