“Great place to stay!”
Reviewed June 27, 2011

Lovely service right from check-in, we ran out of milk and they were more than happy to give us more. Really clean and modern room with a lovely spa bath and great shower pressure. Free WiFi was great! Really comfortable bed all for a really good price!

Recently refurbished to a very high standard with useful kitchenette, large spa bath in the bathroom (not the bedroom). A proper double fold-out bed in the lounge-room was ideal for our 6 year old. Tvs in lounge-room and bedroom. You could even watch tv from the spa-bath if that's your thing.

Little touches like the ground coffee and plunger (cafetiere) coffee pot, umbrella and high quality, fluffy towels make a good stay great.

We found it very quiet although the motel wasn't full.
Occasional distant sound of other spa bath pumps was about all we heard.

Recommended if you want a cut above the usual.

I stay in many motels as part of my work. When I open your eyes in the early morning darkness I often wonder where I am now ... all motel rooms are the same. Never have that problem at the Silver Ferns. The service, the style, the cleanliness, the welcoming atmosphere, the huge spa, the decor, the everything is just outstanding. I cannot recommend Allan and Shirley too highly.

The only ‘problem’ I have is this: I don’t want too many people to discover this upmarket, wonderful place at very average rate ... I may not be able to find a room next time I am in Rotorua. And that will be a real disaster.

Room Tip: All of the rooms are equally great!

I have FINALLY found the motel in Rotorua that I will return to everytime. This place has wonderful decor, clean, awesome super large spa bath, friendly owners, comfy beds and lovely linen & towels. Free Wifi to boot (that works!) Would definately go back for sure and highly recommend to others. Thank you!

We enjoyed a lovely stay at the Silver Fern in April, 2011. The room was comfortable and pleasant, and the bathtub spa was amazing. It was one of the only places where we had free WiFi in a hotel in New Zealand. A BIG help!!! The manager was the BEST. Gave us good insights about what to see and do not just in Rotorua, but along our route south as well. I would highly recommend this property to anyone visiting Rotorua.
Be sure to see the Maori performance, cultural tour, and beautiful nighttime geysers at Te Puia.
