Reviewed November 16, 2010

We have spent a night in a spa unit, at this motel every three weeks this year on a trip from Auckland to the Manawatu area. Every time, we have been impressed with the cleanliness, attention to detail and friendly attitude of the owners. We are a retired couple who have had to travel south for family reasons and always break tiring lourney with a stay on our trip down. We have always enjoyed Rotorua as a foavourite holiday place and look forward to having more time to extend our stays.

Myself and my mountain biking friends have stayed here on numerous occasions, and our latest stay for the SSWC was as good as all the others. Lovely hosts, good rooms, quiet and easy to get to the trails. Will be back.

We had a horrible first night in Rotorua at the Grand Hotel, so it was such a relief to be welcomed into the Sport of Kings. Our hosts made us comfortable, booked us a free shuttle bus to Hells Gate, and were extremely kind and helpful in making our last afternoon in town pleasant. The room was awesome, large, great facilities, free internet, and although we didn't have time to test the heated spa and pool, they looked great. I wish we could have stayed longer. This place is totally worth the extra dollars for budget travellers, and is of the standard of a 4 star hotel, not a motel.

I stayed one night at Sport of Kings with my eight year old daughter during the school holidays. We stayed in a one bedroom spa unit. The unit was spotless clean and the beds were very comfortable with quality linen. The outdoor pool was blissfully warm, as was the spa pool in our unit. We made good use of these as it was cold and raining. The quiet location of the motel made it cosy and safe. All fixtures in the unit were well maintained and fittings of good quality (glass door surrounds to shower). I would reccomend to owners to install smoke alarms, as due to the outdoor spa enclosures, the units have only one point of exit. Really enjoyed my stay, would definetly stay at this motel again.

Great value for money. Rooms are clean and well-equipped. Management is very friendly and proactively offers great discount coupons if you need to go to any of the attractions or food : )

We have been 4 days at this nice place. The owners have been so friendly and helpful. They have a eye for details! The service was perfect and they gave us a hand for tourist events. We enjoyed everything! Next time in Rotorua we see us again! Now back in Switzerland we can compare to other places we have seen and been. Just to recommend. Thanks for all - Jyl and Ian - Go ahead with this. Maggie & Juerg
