Phill and Bev, our hosts, were absolutely fantastic. Warm and friendly, they were able to suggest places for us to visit that were a little different from the usual tourist attractions. The room was fantastic and the washing service brilliant - freeing up lots of time for us to maximise our site-seeing. Would definitely recommend Brylin Motel for a family stay. Thanks, Phill and Bev. Loved meeting you.

We briefly legged it to Rotorua on our way from Coromandel back to Auckland (yes, bit of a detour) and picked this place to stay on short notice. The owners were very friendly and helpful and showed us around the room, the only thing that we struggled to find was the light switch (!) After a 20 minute search we managed to find it. Perhaps this could be pointed out.

The room was very spacious, maybe slightly dated but comfortable beds. I was surprised about the facilities such as a small kitchen and a jacuzzi pool (we did try it and enjoyed it!).
WiFi worked fine and we could park straight in front of the room which was great.

Of-course, like any place in Rotorua you will smell the sulphury scent nearly everywhere. It's a natural effect so nothing to remark negatively on this motel.

Rotorua is great fun, it's not for nothing the locals call it "Rotovegas". Lot's of things to do and enjoy.

We (my husband, two teenage kids and myself) stayed at the Brylin Motel for two nights and found Bev and Phil to be the friendliest and most welcoming motel owners we have ever encountered. Their tip for a good pub meal (at The Pig and Whistle) was spot on. We stayed in a two bedroom apartment and found it to be very clean, comfortable and roomy. The motel is close to the centre of town and all the local attractions are easily accessable from here. We would definately stay here again. Mel and Ron Noorderbroek

Great Place to stay.

Rooms are affordable and well maintained, Good location. Very friendly hosts who went out of their way to assist us. Would recommend to all. We really enjoyed our stay. 2 bedroom apartments are ideal for a few couples or a family

My husband and I stayed at The Brylin and were absolutely over the moon with the unit and service we received.
The units are maintained to the highest standard and are spotless.
Bev and Phill were the most helpful and accommodating hosts we've ever known and really went the extra mile for us ensuring our stay with them was the best it could be.
We would have no hesitation checking into The Brylin again, it was a pleasure.
Thank you Bev and Phill, keep up the great work!!!

Stayed at Brylin Motel for three nights and have to say the service was excellent! Bev and Phil are the perfect hosts who were happy to help out with lots of info and helpful tips to get the best out of our short stay in Rotorua. We were a little bamboozled about what was the best things to do in our time however they helped with recommendations and even booked our Maori village visit and the Skyline and Gondola for us. We stayed in unit 9 which was a two story two bedroom unit in the back corner of the property which gave us distant views towards the Skyline Gondola. Upstairs was the living, kitchen and main bedroom with two balconies and downstairs was another bedroom with two single beds and a tv and a bathroom with a spa which the kids put to good use. Very spacious and well appointed, the large tv in the lounge was great! Our family of four felt quite at home, we had heaps of room.Cannot recommend highly enough this place as THE place to stay while in Rotorua. The customer service was excellent! Bev and Phil also make great first aid officers with lots of bandaids and towels after my son had a rather unfortunate accident with an umbrella. They even lent us said umbrella when it was pouring and we had to go out that night. Overall the best place we stayed in while in NZ. The only negative I have is that the internet access was difficult at times to log into but overall we had the best time and would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Ask for unit 9 which is the corner unit. For a family it has more space, two balconies and a nice ga...
