“Great motel with all you need”
Reviewed May 13, 2013 via mobile

We had a spacious clean room with a well stocked kitchen area- plenty of nice teas and coffee. On a cool Rotorua night it was warm, cosy and quiet; and our bed was very comfortable. We had a huge spa in a separate room with plentiful toiletries, towels and nice touches like robes and a pumice stone. Allan and Shirley were very pleasant and helpful and we made use of the guest laundry and good free wifi. You really need a car to get to the sights and restaurants from here, but they are pretty close. It would be hard to do better for the price.

We had booked early as we were doing the Rotorua Marathon. We chose Silver Fern because they had a day spa on site, which meant we were able to pre-book our post marathon massages. The hotel is centrally located on Fenton St, so is handy to everything. Even though we turned up a bit late on Friday night, our hosts were very accommodating and polite, and even upgraded us to the honeymoon suite which had a large spa bath in the room. This was heaven to use after the marathon! Our room was reasonably spacious and clean and tidy. The only thing it was missing was a sofa or armchairs. The toiletries were a lovely quality. Post marathon we enjoyed our massages with Michelle - she was brilliant and from a sport's persons perspective she really knew her muscle groups. She was also very accomodating with us when we changed our massage times at late notice. All in all, we will be booking again ready for the 50th Rotorua Marathon next year!

Room Tip: Can't complain since we were upgraded to the honeymoon suite - but all the rooms looked good.

Very neat and clean property managed by a beautiful couple Allan & Shirley. We had most of the interaction with Allan during our two day stay here. As we approached the place, we had mixed feelings. The property was just outside the main area. Property has not many rooms and they are doing a good job managing it. He was quite helpful in checking in as we approached. The room was quite spacious with spacious spa wash room. Bed and towels were best out of the hotels we stayed in NZ. We particularly liked the jacuzzi bath tub. He helped us in planning the two day trip quite well and we did as he suggested. Now i check we covered most of the places. He also provided us with discount coupon for Geysers which was quite close to this property. Few very big departmental stores are near by for your grocery needs. Very calm place. We also went to see market which is held on main street only on Tuesdays.

Room Tip: Unless you want to stay in luxurious hotels, this should be your top choice for 3-4 star stay.

We (2 adults & 2 children) stayed at Silver Fern Rotorua after reading the positive reviews on trip advisor and overall were very happy with our choice. The service was very friendly and helpful and the rooms neat and tidy (even if the furniture wasn't exactly contemporary). The kitchen was well stocked and fresh milk was provided to us on check-in. The DVD library at reception was a nice touch and our 5 year old had lots of fun choosing which movies to watch! As for us adults loved the free Wi-Fi! Overall highly recommended and would stay here if we came to Rotorua again.

Great location near the centre of Rotorua and close to all the major attractions. The rooms are spacious, and I would definitely recommend getting the rooms with the hot tub. The rooms are spacious, and the staff very friendly and helpful. They can provide tourist information and help book trips if needed. They also had DVD's that could that could be borrowed.

Room Tip: Get a room with a hot tub/ spa.

We stayed in rotorua for one night. Silver Fern was a good choice for us. The service was helpful, and reception had a selection of DVD's to borrow free. We didn't end up making use of the private heated spa in our room but imagine it would be nice! Only negative was when we tried to do some laundry and the drier didn't work, however the owner got it going for us eventually.

Rotorua was the initial leg of our NZ honeymoon, and our decision to stay at Silver Fern was just perfect! We booked a standard studio room and got upgraded to a Superior Studio Suite on our arrival, as they told us we'll get more privacy on the first floor. Nice touch.

Room had a very homey feeling, furnitures didn't look exactly new but it was very clean and well-maintained. The bed was our favourite in all of our motel stays throughout NZ! We also loved our private spa bath and the real gem for us was actually the free and superfast Wifi connection.

Our hosts helped us to reconfirm our taxi booking to the airport & gave us directions around town. Our 2 nights stay were lovely, and it was definitely a memorable part of our NZ honeymoon. Highly recommended.
