After a long day on the road we were easily checked in and taken to our room. A spacious, clean room with a lovely ensuite spa was a nice way to end our mini road trip. Our host was very helpful recommending restaurants and activities to do. The bed was so comfortable and we had a great night's sleep. Location is more suitable to those with a car, parking is easy and the area seems quiet. Probably wouldn't walk into the town centre from here but parking is pretty easy in Rotorua. Price wise it was on a par with others I had looked at over the long weekend. Overall a comfortable and pleasant stay.

Thank you for your comments. We are pleased you enjoyed your stay with us and you found the spa bath to your liking. We are one of the closest motels to the town centre being located next to Rotorua Central Shopping Centre, it is but a short walk through the Shopping Malls food Court into the centre of town. Thank you and we look forward to your next visit.

1 night at BK's. Very clean and lots of room in this studio unit.very well placed and our bed had little side tables with lamps and radio so all good. Good to have two lazy boy type chairs Great nights sleep on comfy bed. Awesome spa. Very friendly and helpful host. (We only met one-I'm sure there was another somewhere) Nice and handy to city centre and shopping centre right over the road.

We stayed in the studio unit which we found to be immaculately clean. The host was friendly and welcoming. Unit was decent sized (for a studio), comfy bed, loved having the ceiling fan too. Shower pressure was amazing and the spa bath was a nice bonus. The only tiny negative was that the shower head was mounted quite low (great for me but not so much for Mr 6 ft tall) - however that is one of those areas where you simply can't please everybody. BK's is well located, being a short stroll from the city centre. Despite this, we had no issues with noise. We found this motel to be great value for money and would definitely stay there again.

Thank you for your review of your stay with us. We are pleased you enjoyed your stay. Yes our water pressure is fantastic and with thet hot water on gas it never runs out. all our windows have been fitted with hush glass, this eliminates 90% of outside noise for our guests comfort. I also find the shower head to low but they have been fitted at an industry standard height (everywhere we go they are the same height) when the property was built. Thank you and we look forward to your next visit.

We spent 5 nights at the BK's Rotorua Motor Lodge and in hindsight we may not choose it again for more than a night's stay as a family. We had a one bedroom unit. The room was clean and spacious but lacking in hanging space and benches or side tables to place those odd items you tend to leave out when you are staying for a few days. The hanging space is only a small cupboard in the main bedroom and no hooks anywhere else bar one in the bathroom. The two single beds in the main living area have no side tables at all. The bathroom whilst spacious has only a small vanity basin and insufficient hanging space for 4 people and no where to place all our vanity items. Just minor things but which would make the room a little more comfortable.

The motel is very convenient to downtown Rotorua and has two supermarkets within close walking distance.

Thank you "GlobeTrotters4001" for taking the time to leave a review of your stay with us. Our rooms are well equiped however we do limit what we put into the units to keep them clutter ferr and appealing. In the bedroom we have a side table either side of the bed a luggage rack and a wardrobe, extra coat hangers and even a chest of draws are available on request. In the lounge the coffe table can double as a bedside table, again we have a bedside table available on request. A suggestion for those wanting some extra space, our three bedroom suite has a wardrobe a TV and side tables in each bedroom.

Yes our location is great with the closest supermatket across the street and two more close by (400 meters) and all our rooms are equiped with a kitchen. For those that perfer to eat out the restaurants are located an easy walk away in town.

Thank you for your feedback.

Staff were friendly and very helpful.Room was very clean with very comfortable Lazy Boy armchairs. Walking distance to great restaurants and shops.The manager gave excellent advise on local attractions based on personal knowledge.She had visited all the tourist attractions advertised in her office.This was very helpful when deciding which attractions to go to in our limited time.

Thank you "Sar04h" for your review. We are pleased we were able to make your experience in Rotorua enjoyable. We ensure our front line staff have a great knowledge of what Rotorua has to offer for our visitors, this enables then to offer informed advice to our guests. After the big day exploring the sights there is nothing better that than relaxing inour recliner chairs other than perhaps a soak in one of our Spa Baths with a glass of wine.

Thank You for your comments.

A well run motel .The hosts were friendly and very helpful.
The motel was spotless.
We stayed on a Saturday night, the online deal we had was $125NZD which included a continental breakfast.
The motel is across the road from a main shopping area, but it is about a 15-20 minutes to walk down to where all the main Rotorua restaurants are.

Thank you "Wendy G" for your review. 15 to 20 minutes walk to down town and the restaurants, the shops must have been open. 10 minutes walk usually takes you through town and to the edge of the lake. We are located on the Southen edge of town across the road from Rotorua Central Shopping Centre. One of the closest motel in Rotorua to the town centre.

Thank you for your comments and we are pleased you enjoyed your stay with us.

This is a typical New Zealand motel nestled beside some seemingly flasher places, but it has features these establishments are unlikely to match. BK’s is just off Rotorua’s main motel strip on Fenton Street and a short walk to the main shopping area, restaurants and local tourist facilities such as the Government Gardens and Polynesian Pools. Our unit was very adequate with kitchen facilities, a spa bath and comfy bed. Parking was right outside the door.

The owners were very friendly and helpful. It was nice to stay in a motel that is owned by the couple that you deal with.

Overall this is a nice place to stay and it is good value.

Room Tip: Not all room have spa baths.
