I'm an American, studying in New Zealand. I stayed here for two nights when my Dad came to visit and we traveled the north island. The property is nice; tidy and well kept. There is a warm (geothermally heated) swimming pool and a couple of warm mineral water spa tubs. Our room was just as good; very clean and as well equipped as I would expect. It's pretty close to the attractions, walking distance to Rainbow Springs and a free geothermal park.
We stayed an extra night because the owner/manager was so nice. He's taken the place over recently, apparently. He's a very accommodating host, always there to answer questions or get us something we needed. But never uncomfortably hyper attentive the way well-meaning people can sometimes be.The best part, for me, was Happy, the resident kitten. He's as playful and personable as a puppy, and the highlight of my visit was learning that he'll be neutered when he is old enough. Nothing bespeaks trustworthiness and strength of character like responsible pet ownership.
Only four stars because it was genuinely Very Good - no jaw dropping vistas or gourmet cuisine. But that's not what I expected, anyway. Near a main roadway (hence accessible to attractions) so this meant that my Dad had a little trouble sleeping. I definitely recommend the Cleveland Motel and next time I stay in Rotorua, I will go out of my way to return.
