Friendly staff, nice and clean room with all the amenities and kitchenette provided, and cozy bed. What can I expected from a hotel with a good price for a vocation? It is really the price of a ticket. Besides, have to mention that their own mineral spa pool for free is really good and relaxing.

My brother in law booked me into this hotel, on reading the reviews I was very apprehensive about going. However, I feel it is imperative I write this review as I found it to be quite a good motel. The reception staff are fabulous. Upon our arrival, my son had become ill and needed medical attention. The reception advised that... More

Great location, only 5 minute walk to iSITE and museum. Room was clean, amenities and kitchenette were also provided. I love the hot pools(best recommended before going to sleep) its for free and fast wifi. Bed is warm and comfy. The building might look run down but it doesn't affect the service. The staff are really nice and friendly, they... More

Let's start with the Pro's: The private mineral pool in their studio unit was great and relaxing, although could have used some cleaning. Now for the Con's: The unit was filthy. Hairs from previous occupants on furniture, bathroom doors, floors etc. Mysterious stains on the sofa. Insects covering soap trays, kitchen walls. Stove not working. The dust of what must... More

We planned a Summer trip to Rotorua and spent 2 nights at Kuirau Park Motor Lodge. Their website advertises SKY in all their rooms but the room which we had did not have SKY and apparently never did. The room is full of mosquitoes by the windows and on the ceiling. The microwave does not work. The bathroom has hairs... More

Poor, worn down, noisy. This place needs defenetly a total overhaul. Electricity system is dodgy with flashing lights. Strong streetnoise. Smelly fridge because was not used for some time while door was closed. Location is in center of town what makes it ok.

The hotel is very simple but the price doesn't match. Terrible shower, poor bed, simple deco and furniture. They guarantee at the booking a free parking spot, but somebody else was using it.

Excellent location but room was disappointing. Someone else's sock and rubbish under the beds. Full kitchen but only one pot, broken element on stove, no toaster, 2 teaspoons (family unit). Fraying carpet. Apart from the rubbish under the beds it was clean and had comfortable beds. Reasonably priced but I wouldn't stay again. Stayed in 2brm unit, 14.
