I stayed two nights at RotoVegas in early march on a holiday. The price is quite reasonable and very friendly hosts. The motel is managed by a 3-4 young entrepreneurs and they obviously understand how to manage the business to a high level of customer satisfaction.

The hosts are very helpful. They asked everyone where they come from and what they would like to see and visit. They gave a very useful suggestions as they are local "wiki" as they called themselves. When you return to the hotel you would also be greeted by "how is your day today?" and "awesome you have a great day!"

The room are very well designed with full facilities. Enough power plugs, full kitchenettes and the room is very big.

They provide the self laundry with $5 to include detergent and everything. They use what they called a thermal heating dry room so that you would leave your clothes in the dry room to collect it next day. They also restrict the laundry time to be from 8:00am - 9:00pm to keep the noise to minimum.

Each room has allocated one parking place and addition car have to use street parking. There is also a restriction on the use of the kitchen as heavy cooking is prohibite
The motel's location is super convenient. It is within walking discuss to countdown and ParknSave
super market. There is also a shopping centre within the walking distance. If you do not want to cook yourself there is plenty of restaurant and the host will tell you a feed street in the evening

Overall I like this motel and it caters both couple as well as families. Team traveller also have a large guest room to accommodate around 11+ people.

There is only one thing to point out that the cleaning lady did not do a good job and there are some corners with a thick dusts. Ex. the top of the simple wall drop needs cleaning.

Room Tip: The hotel gives you password for wifi access of 30MB cap each day. The downside is that it only allo...

Upon arrival 15/03 the awesome super friendly and super helpful young lady at the desk was our introduction to Rotovegas and everything went uphill from there. Room was fantastic, Hot tub was awesome after a night at the Tamaki Brothers tour. It was clean and well equipped and the young girl at reception was the highlight for me as she showed us where all the attractions were and the great value for money which resulted in a great experience sight seeing in Rotorua after checkout.

Kia ora Michelle,

Thank you for the lovely review - I would like to say I was the lovely young blonde at reception but sadly that was Sabrina and she is wonderful - super friendly and speaks German too! Glad you had a fun night at Tamaki Tours it is always a hit with our guests.

Thanks again for the review (you made Sabrina's day).

We look forward to staying here each year during a bowling tournament. Apartment was newly decorated. Clean and tidy. Would highly recommend - across the road from supermarket and liquor store, and walking distance to several restaurants. Nice pool. Very friendly and helpful managers + Dad a treasure.

Stayed here with my sister in January 2013 for two nights and had a nice experience with both the hotel and the staff. The apartment room (with 2 double beds) was spacious and had a mini kitchen area to cook meals. It was an easy 10 minute walk into town and 5 minutes across the street to the grocery store. The hotel staff was also very accommodating and let us keep our luggage and car parked even though we had checked out in the morning. Even better, they stayed up late when we arrived after 11 pm for our check-in. Recommend staying here if you are in Rotorua!
