We enjoyed our stay at Aritsa for our Rotorua getaway. The room was excellent with all the facilities that we needed. The spa pool was great and very relaxing. The price was reasonable. Definitely will be going back!!

We were extremely happy with our stay at Arista. The staff were very friendly, helpful and always smiling and happy to chat. The room we had for our family was spacious, clean and very comfortable. We had a family unit, with bedrooms upstairs and living downstairs. Beds were comfortable with plenty of pillows and blankets provided. It does get hot...

Very helpful staff, clean rooms and equipment. 7 of us stayed and we all enjoyed the stay very much. Buildings are beautiful and well looked after, I had complements from my in-laws that I have reserved a very nice place for them. Strongly recommended.

Great welcome by Michael, beautiful room all the comforts of home. Great nights sleep. I must say the shower needs to be closed in as water goes everywhere, small thing because they provide plenty of towels, this is the only reason i didnt rate 5/5. So well done Arista, i would certainly recommend this place.

The staff were lovely, welcoming and accommodating. The room was comfortable. We had five adults so a second bathroom, or even toilet would have been useful, and a dishwasher would have been magic. But overall, great location, clean and tidy, and had free WIFI

Clean, comfortable, quiet, and well equipped, friendly helpful staff ,(Michael deserves a special mention here) the hot tub was a boon after a hard days sightseeing. It was a 20 minute walk into town but there is plenty of free parking in the CBD so no problem there. All l in all a very pleasant place to stay
