Accolade Lodge Motel

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed April 20, 2014

Quiet location within short walk of centre and lake. Room was comfortable and clean, although smaller than some we had stayed in. Bonus was provision of a plentiful continental breakfast. Lance is a very helpful and friendly manager with a wealth of knowledge of the locality and advice on how to make the most of your stay.

The rooms here are average but if it is just a bed you need this is great value. Stayed one night with my daughter. For the price paid $99 nzd that included free wifi and also breakfadt for both of us at a help yourself breakfast dining room. Breakfast was great and good perculated coffee! The gentleman at the front counter (sorry didnt get your name) was awesome. Provided so much information on the area and things to do in area both free and not. Also great to have a general chat too. Definitely the best host we found throughout our stay in nz.

Just returned from a month in NZ and this place stands out as the single best value for the money of our entire trip. Don't expect fancy, new, or spacious. In our room, one person would be roomy. but with two it starts to get cramped. It's older, but clean. Bed comfortable. Property comes with excellent value added: First, Lance the manager provided a detailed and comprehensive overview of top10 sights not to miss in Rotorua that was as good as anything anywhere I found. His discount coupons got us $5 off at Polynesian Spa. I listened to every word. Second, the complimentary continental breakfast I thought was excellent. Listen, NZ is a relatively expensive country. CBs in general go for anywhere from $9 to $17, this was included in the already excellent room rate. Different breads, butter, toaster, cereals and milk, fresh fruit, juices, coffee/tea. All in all recommended, just be aware it's not new or fancy.

The motel has nice location, close to the center but away from a noisy road. The room we had was big enough and clean. The breakfast was nothing special but just good to start your day. The owner was very helpfull and friendly. I can not recall any bad thing so I do recommend the place.

The photos are completely misleading. The rooms are tiny, with no air conditioning which is a must in the heat of NZ weather. The bathroom was even smaller and was disgusting. There was black mould on the shower head and on the shower glass near the base where the cleaner obviously took a short cut. This motel is not 4 star. It was definitely a 2 star motel. When we politely went to ask if there was air conditioning or a fan we had missed in our room (we did miss a tiny, mobile fan) the owner told us if we didn't like it to move to another motel down the road. We hadn't even complained, just asked if there was any aircon. Shocked really. Nothing more to say. Can't recommend you to miss this enough - also off the beaten track in a crappy location. PS. Continental breakfast not worth it if you're paying extra

Room Tip: Just don't book any here. JUST. DON'T.

Wonderful value for the $. Lance at the front desk knows so much about the area. His tips were on target, whether it was a restaurant or a hike. The room itself worked. Beds were comfortable and shower was nice. Breakfast was a nice continental spread. No road noise, easy drive into town, and across the street (walk or drive) from a Mall if you need to pick up anything.

This place was very clean and much nicer than expected for the price. The man at the check in desk was really really helpful with travel information and gave us a couple of discount vouchers.
Breakfast was good too.
