“Great place for stay...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2014

This motel gives you everything that one can expect for a clean comfortable stay. The room had an outdoor covered Jacuzzi which was a blessing. The rooms gave a fresh and warm appeal. The staffs are friendly. The breakfast was too good.
Its better to be experiences and than to be described.

We stayed as a family of 4. The rooms were clean and well heated. Breakfast was great. The spa in the courtyard was excellent and we used it every day. The staff were extremely friendly and did my washing for free. I can thoroughly recommend Fenton Court Motel as a friendly motel that is great value for money.

Room Tip: The rooms with a spa in the courtyard as great.

We go to Rotorua regularly but this was the first time we had stayed here. The room, although small, was immaculate. The outside spa was beautiful, everything in the room was fresh and appealing. The heater was great (we have stayed in places in Rotorua before where the heater doesn't go). The complimentary breakfast is beautifully presented and there was HEAPS of well cooked food - you would happily pay for this, so its a lovely touch that its included in the room rate. The husband and wife team were just lovely, really helpful and naturally friendly - we said we would be back and we will - its our new favourite place to stay!

Our family stayed 2 nights and our teenage girls loved the spa bath. Very clean and tidy and very friendly and helpful staff. The complimentary breakfasts with our booking were just right. We really enjoyed our stay and will come back here again.

Stayed here for 2 nights (all too short a stay sadly!) in July, so the weather was rainy and windy.

Regardless of the nasty weather, the motel offered a warm welcome to their friendly establishment.

I opted for a room with a private outdoor jacuzzi/hot pool which was fantastic. This was located outside and under cover. It took a long while to fill up, but there was nothing better after a day out exploring in the wind and rain to come back and have a long soak in the hot water while listening to and watching the weather swirling around!

The room itself was also very good. Microwave and fridge (with free milk) and lots of tea/coffee/hot chocolate/biscuits. Also the usual things like a TV and free wi-fi internet access.

The bathroom was large, with a decent shower, toilet and sink. I would mention there's no bath, but when you've got a large hot tub sat outside, you don't really need one!

The free shuttle minibus was invaluable. They took me to the Polynesian Spa and also picked me up from a local supermarket when the rain was coming down.

In terms of location, it's around a 15 minute stroll from central Rotorua up Fenton Street, but in pleasant weather it's a nice enough walk. Local amenities include a supermarket and fast food restaurants within a 10 minute walk.

Would definitely come here again, hopefully in summer next time!

Room Tip: Spend the few dollars more to ask for a ground floor room with outdoor hot tub/jacuzzi!

Very tidy and clean motel. Friendly and helpfull staff. Great way to relax in a warm spa while it's very cold outside. Breakfast was delivered to our room, on time and still hot. Plenty of tea and coffee in our room.

Its not the newest cab off the rank, but its clean, its tidy and the owners are lovely, and most helpful. Our room was on the second storey so we had an inhouse spa bath, rather than in the courtyard. Our room was not large, but it was fine for us both and we had a microwave if we needed to heat up food bought outside. A big bathroom with towels and toiletries beautifully presented. Nice bed coverings too and a good TV with a great selection of channels to choose from. The scrambled eggs breakfast was a great touch too with hot toast served up in their own little paper jackets and cooked to perfection. Good value, outstanding service and a great nights sleep in a big bed.

Room Tip: Try and get ground floor if you have lots of luggage and youre not too fit
