“Friendly and cosy”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 15, 2013

We stayed here last weekend with another family, and had an enjoyable time away. Our room had two bedrooms, a private spa. It was spacious for a family of 4. The stream was amazing as the kids could go and feed the trout. The welcome that we got on arrival was friendly and nothing was to much trouble. We had room service from the in house restaurant and the meals were lovely and reasonably priced. Keep up the good work in making your guests feel comfortable and relaxed.

Friendly, clean and well cared for property. Our room had a spa pool over looking the stream and this setting is truly amazing. The in-house restaurant was superb, with staff that catered for our every wish. Well done keep up the great work.

I spent ages on Tripadvisor looking for somewhere to stay in Rotorua and it paid off because Braeside was perfect. The greeting we received was very friendly. It's just outside the centre of the town which suited us. The rooms were comfortable and clean. There was a hot swimming pool and Jacuzzi which was great as it was cold whilst we were there. I would thoroughtly recommend it.

My husband and I took a trip with our daughter last week and stayed in a room with its own spa, we had wonderful friendly hospitality and the room was lovely, clean and well equipped. We loved the location as it was so close to the touristy spots. Loved the mini putt and even saw a couple of trout in the stream, very quiet location too. We will definately be back

Room Tip: Added relaxation with the private spa, and enjoyable for our 8yr old

We stayed at the Braeside with our two children (2 & 5) and another family with children (5 & 7). We were so pleased with the facilites - each room has a private spa pool which the kids absolutely loved, aswell as the outdoor pools. The restaurant is lovely and it is only a few minutes walk to the Gondola & Luge experience across the road. The rooms were modern and clean. On top of all this, the hosts were so friendly and happy ... it was tempting to stay longer! We will definitely book this motel every time we are in Rotorua.

Myself, my husband and our two kids (aged 4 years and 9 months) recently stayed at Best Western Braeside in Rotorua. We really enjoyed our stay and we even extended it by 2 days. Karen (the host) was so lovely and gave us heaps of advice about places we could go to with our two young children. She was always cheerful and friendly. Before we arrived she put on the heater in our unit which we appreciated as it was so cold! The unit itself was clean and perfect for us as a family. Karen provided us with a high chair (she also offered us a portacot as well but we already had our own). The on-site restaurant was good for our first night at the motel as we were too tired to cook - good food and drink and an open fire to keep us all warm. We were very happy with our stay at the Braeside and we would definitely stay there again. It is a bit our of the centre of Rotorua but we liked that because we didn't get any of the sulphur fumes and the Braeside is right across the road from the Skyline and Rainbow Springs - both of which we took our kids to. There is also a small supermarket (Fresho) just down the road which stocks basic stuff like bread, milk, eggs etc. A very enjoyable stay - thanks Braeside!
