Beautiful, modern and clean! The owners were so lovely and helpful, supplying us with an area map and complementary goody basket :) yum! On the main road so nice and central to town but far enough south to avoid the noise and hustle bustle. The in room spa was amazing!!! Such a great way to finish off the day, watching sky movies whilst relaxing in the spa!! Overall a great place to stay the only downfall - if I had to mention one - would be that our room was one in a row of many upstairs accessed by a balcony walkway so everyone who also had an upstairs room had to closely walk past ours to get to theirs! we just kept our curtains closed :)

We did a last minute booking and were due to show up in Rotorua after 11pm. The lovely team at Emerald arranged for our room to be open and ready, they even put the heater on for us as it was a cold night. We arrived to a warm and cosy room. The rest of the stay was great. Our breakfast delivered each morning was yum and the room was very clean. The owners had great knowledge of the town and have great advice on free activities and places to eat. We highly recommend staying here if you love great quality service and rooms at great prices. Thank you for a wonderful weekend.

Thank you for your great review. We are so pleased you enjoyed your stay with us and had a lovely time exploring Rotorua. Nothing nicer than going in to a nice warm room in the winter, especially with the snow not far away. Best Wishes

Staff lovely and very helpful. Rooms clean and free wifi. Couldn't ask for more! Nothing was too much trouble. About 5 blocks out of the centre of town. Rotorua is a very smelly place because of the sulphur but this can't be helped!

Thank you for your lovely review, it is always good to know what our guests think, keeps us on our toes and of course our housekeeping staff love to get the feedback too. Yes it can be a bit smellie sometimes but then it wouldn't be such a beautiful and interesting place to visit. All the Best

What a great place to stay. The rooms are spotless, lovely and modern with all you need at your fingertips. I honestly couldnt fault the Emerald Spa if I wanted to.
Highly recommend to anyone looking for one of the best places in Rotorua to book a room here.

This place was staffed by friendly and helpful folks...I think we met all 3 who work in the front (owners I'm guessing), and one housekeeper, and all were warm and welcoming. The room itself was sparkling clean, well-equipped with kitchenette and a huge (clean!) spa tub, free and functional internet, and a comfortable bed. Very convenient location. A little noise could be heard at times from other rooms, but was not an issue for us.

Awesome hospitality at this motel. You are not just handed your key and told where to find your room, but instead you are shown to your room and told how to use the air con remotes etc . Helpful information is available at the desk and discount vouchers available for some sights. The room was fantastic with a huge spa and very clean facilities. Will definitely stay here again and will happily recommend the Emerald Spa to friends and family :)

We stayed for one night in a studio room and it was great. Room was nice, clean, and modern. It had a small kitchenette as well with everything we needed. Bathroom had a big spa bath in it. The pool is really nice and heated too. Would definitely stay here again.
