Our group of 6 adults & 5 children stayed in Rotovegas house for 5 nights. Perfect for a large group. Great facilities, big kitchen and dining room. Able to store bikes in garage, and the drying room came in handy for the few wet days. The kids loved the heated pool and the trampoline. Bryce and Natalee were very helpful when recommending activities in Rotorua.

Would definitely stay here again.

Thank you for reviewing RotoVegas House, it is a gem of a place to stay for large groups. With 5 bedrooms and sleeping up to 15-20 it is probably the biggest Motel unit in Rotorua.

Glad you had a great time and we have upgraded the bed in the house too.

Cheers Natalee @ RotoVegas Motel

Loved the decor, we had a room with a spa which was great. Room was lovely and warm with the central heating, very clean, nice bathroom, receptionist was great and really friendly, spent a lot of time pointing us to good local restaurants. Was a bit of road noise as we were in the very front room on the road, but you get that on a busy road and we still slept really well. Great value for money and would definitely recommend.

Room Tip: Definitely get a room with a private spa pool.

Thank you so very much for the great review of RotoVegas Motel, it is wonderful guests like yourselves that make our jobs lots of fun.

Our central heaters are wonderful, it is getting cold in Rotorua now, so the electric blankets are starting to come out onto the beds and we have purchased TEN NEW hotel bed, the executive style ones! So thank you for your feedback (as it makes us want to ensure we are doing a great job) and thank you for staying we us as that (money) helps us invest back into the property for our next lovely guests

We liked the location if the motel, the supermarket is just a walking distance. Te Puia was also nearby. It was raining when we were about to head out for Te Po & the kind owners lend us some umbrellas. They were nice to provide us with free wifi as well. Room was a bit small for 4 people otherwise it was all good.

We were here for a couple of nights and found it to be excellent. We were given an upgrade and our room was very clean and spacious with a sitting area, table and chairs and bathroom with an indoor hot tub. The owner, Natalee, was extremely helpful and friendly. The location is especially worthy of comment as many hotels/motels are on Fenton Street but it is a long street and Rotovegas is in prime position for walking into the town centre. There is also a supermarket opposite and eateries very nearby. We'll definitely return.

Thank you for the wonderful review of RotoVegas Motel. Bryce and I are delighted we can assist with ideas for what to see and do, as we are locals of Rotorua so know the place well! Glad you enjoyed our location and clean and tidy units (with a 'touch' of retro fun) we find most of our guests feel the same - which is wonderful for us and our delightful staff.

We do hope you have a great time with the rest of your holiday in our beautiful country.

Easy walk to the main part of town, with lots of bars and restaurants (and shops) from which to choose.
Rooms were clean and well equipped, with lots of space.
We would certainly book here again if back in Rotorua.

Kia Ora Fred,

Thank you for the great review regarding our studio spa retro rooms and our location - coming from such a "top contributor" this is lovely to read.
Glad you had a great time in Rotorua and enjoyed Mitai as well, this 'hangi and concert' is a great show which every traveller to Rotorua should try.

Cheers Natalee and we do hope to see you again.

The motel is located in in a very good location, very close to city central with restaurants, gas station, supermarket nearby. We were staying at a two-bedroom apartment with kitchen and hot-tub. The room is of good size, clean, and have everything we need. The owner is very very nice and helpful. He spent a lot of time recommending us places to visit in and around Rotorua, restaurants, etc. Great place to stay!

Thank you so much for taking the time to share your feedback with potential new guests regarding your stay at RotoVegas Motel.

The location is great (to the city and the forest) and that is why we get so many repeat guests and it is always so nice to see regular faces again.

Thank you for letting us know about the spa pools, as at times the piles get fill (just like a shower can block) - Bryce has cleared these out now and they are extremely fast again!

Glad you liked your stay in the studio funky room and yes it is more compact than our retro spa retro units. We get great feedback on this unit due to the good value for money - you get cooking facilities, FREE Wifi and a private spa pool. If you are staying more than a couple of days then the retro spa unit is a more popular choice.

We always love it when potential guests call us direct, so we can let them know the best option for them depending how they are travelling and for how long. As sometimes it does not come down to the cheapest option is the best option.

Thanks again.

Close to town (walking distance) and even though on busy Fenton street it is quiet and away from traffic noise mostly. The rooms are a little on the small side (we had a studio), but well appointed. The spa which comes with the room is a good size although fills very slowly. The owners are extremely helpful and will organise bookings, and give tourist advice. Proximity to some good restaurants (the Kurious Kiwi is nearby and is well worth a visit) and also Countdown are pluses. Well worth considering.

Room Tip: If you afford a bigger room than a studio, then go for it - the studio rooms are a bit cramped.
