My partner and I stayed here as our 'budget accommodation.' The room is very reasonably priced. Staff went above and beyond to ensure our trip was enjoyable. Prior to our stay, I emailed one of the staff about what activities we should do. She was extremely helpful and emailed me multiple times. She also made arrangements and booked activities for us. Would highly recommend this motel. The room is clean and the service is exceptional. Our room even had a private spa!

Kia ora Kim,

So kind of you to write a review for us. I know you read our reviews before booking and it is greatly appreciated when you also take your time to share your thoughts as well.

Glad you and your lovely ladies had a fun and busy time in Rotorua. I love seeing all the families staying with us over the summer break due to our location and price - so it is delightful you also felt we have 'great rooms, great rates and now another great recommendation'.

All the best with your amazing stationary business in Melbourne - looks fab.

Kind regards Natalee

My girls and I just stayed at the Rotovegas for two nights as they were highly recommended to us. I found Natalie the owner and her husband so friendly and helpful. They helped with sightseeing recommendations and discounts as well as eating places for us. The rooms were very clean (a cleaner came in the second morning when we went out, to clean up and give us new towels etc which I wasn't expecting) and funky with a modern retro style. With a new updated bathroom too. My girls loved the heated pool and trampoline plus the free DVDs we could borrow for movie nights. Close to supermarket too with it cross the road. Affordable accommodation price too. Would definitely highly recommend them.

Kia Ora Kim,

Sorry I ever so kindly replied to your lovely review but clicked on the review above - having a 'sulphur moment'.

Thank you for taking the time to review our complex, I know you read our reviews on trip advisor prior to booking - so it is nice that you also took the time to write about RotoVegas Motel as well.

Cheers Natalee

We were checked in and out very efficiently and the owner was incredibly helpful, full of suggestions of things to do and very happy to call around and book us into whatever we needed. She was able to reserve us a place on a hangi experience and even got us a 10% discount. The room was a good size, and what was really surprising was that it was very quiet, even though the motel itself is on a main road, and our room was closest to it! The insulation is really, really effective. The spa bath was lovely: not the most attractively decorated but a perfect size for two, with a complimentary shot glass of bubble bath. Since you can't use it between 10pm and 7.30am, as it might disturb other guests, we used it in the morning and it was definitely the best way to start the day! (Unfortunately there was a clump of hair in one of the jets, so I'm deducting a point on the cleanliness score.) The location of the motel is fairly convenient; Rotorua is not the prettiest town so it doesn't really matter where you stay. There's a supermarket right across the road. We were able to walk to the waterfront via Sulfur Point, and Kuirau park is also a 15-minute stroll away. No matter what we tried, we could not get the Wi-Fi to work, but this was a fairly common experience for us with New Zealand motels. We were given a nice tetrapak of milk, which was handy for tea and coffee.

Room Tip: Even roadside rooms are surprisingly quiet. You can't use an in-room spa between 10pm and 7.30am so plan your day accordingly.

Kia Ora Natasha,

Thank you for taking the time to review RotoVegas Motel and the services we provide.

Glad you found our service and location excellent. The spa jets are what get turned off after 10pm (you can still soak away your worries in the spa - just without the bubbles). This is a stand policy amongst motels to ensure all guests can have a great nights sleep (some guests go to bed early as they have long drives North or South).

Great to read to ticked of so many of the great sights of Rotorua.

Thanks again for your feedback.

All the best with the rest of your travels - Cheers Natalee

We booked a spa room online at the last minute with a special deal that included a free continental breakfast. When we arrived we were upgraded to a larger room but the receptionist had no knowledge of the breakfast offer! However they were good enough to honour it by giving us the necessary ingredients to cook in our small kitchenette.

I think the look of our room was meant to be 70s glamour but this made the room seem dated. The spa bath was excellent though.

One of our main reasons for choosing Rotovegas was that it is relatively close to the town centre for restaurants and bars - although the best of these are at the far end, a 20 minute walk away this was fine for us.

Would consider staying again but would consider other motels as well.

We had a great 2 night stay - staff were excellent with all the up to date information on the area including food shopping, sights, restaurants, current events etc. The room was very well equipped for a family with washing to do etc . Lovely communal space with a BBQ area, pool etc!
