Room: We stayed in a 1 bed room, which was spacious and comfortable. The decor was quite dated but everything was in working order. The bed was comfortable, albeit a very soft mattress, and was actually a double (rather than 2 singles pushed together).
Cleanliness: The room, including kitchen and bathroom, were very clean. There were some stains on the ceiling and walls from old watermarks.
Facilities: The kitchen was well equipped to make basic meals. There were a variety of thermal pools, free to use for guests.
Location: The location is excellent, being a short walk from the Government Gardens, the Lake and the town centre. There is plenty of free parking directly outside the hotel.
Arriving: We booked this motel in the morning of our intended stay and advised the reception that we would be arriving at around 9pm. When we arrived at 9.10pm, the reception was shut. We eventually managed to get the attention of staff after a lot of knocking, but thought it was a little strange not to mention to us on the phone that the reception shut at 9pm given the fact that we advised of an arrival time. Otherwise, the staff were friendly and helpful, advising of places to see and eat.
Overall, this is an excellent budget choice in Rotorua and would recommend a stay.More
