This is the second time I have stayed here, the last time with my wife and young daughter. The Rotorua Moonride brought me back as solo traveller. I did not even bother to go and look elsewhere, as from my experience last time why waste the effort when I could simply return to a place that is quiet and the facilities are all that you could need?

Ian and Jyl are great hosts who go out of their way to ensure that you have a good stay. The motel is just off the main drag so the traffic nose is not an issue, it is nice and close to the Redwoods so you can bike there and back with no trouble at all. It is also close enough to the town centre so you walk there and back for a well earned beer (or 10) after a day on the trails!

I will definitely be coming back to Rotorua for more mountain biking, and will make Ian and Jyl my first stop for a place to stay - thanks guys!

Very clean and well appointed. Children loved it as it was safe and had great pool. Very quiet and excellent heating even flat screen TV. The hosts were fabulous they treated you as you were the only ones staying there. A great place to stay with the family. We will definitely return and stay again. It made Rotorua a really attractive place to stay.

We (husband, wife, 2 young daughters (both under 3) and a friend) recently stayed here for 3 days. Ian and Jyl were the perfect hosts - always more than ready to help with any of the unpredictable needs a young family throws up. The rooms were clean and comfortable and the swimming and spa pools just what we needed. Would definitely stay again.

We stayed at the Sport of Kings Motel twice, once in February and once again in April as we did enjoy our stay very much. The room was clean and spacious, the spa (jacuzzi) was wonderful, huge and just the right temperature, lots of towels available for us as well. The swimming pool water was clean and warm, the pool itself very well maintained. Our hosts were friendly and helpful with sightseeing projects we had. We intend to stay here again for sure! The wireless in our room gave us great internet contact.

We would like to thank the owners of the sportofkingsmotel for a wonderful stay over the easter weekend. The unit we stayed in was lovely, nice and clean and refreshed everyday whilst we were away while my daughter was playing basketball.

The kids and I enjoyed the relaxing atmosphere with a spa in our room so we could relaxed as well as the spa they even had an outdoor pool which was heated;

It was well located in town and we were giving alot of information and discounts.

Best motel to stay
