The motel room is very clean and tidy. We were really enjoyed our stay. Great location which is next to Skyline just about 2 minutes walk. We will definitely come back to stay for our next trip again. Thank you

Rotorua was 96% booked over Xmas period and for some reason this place was not fully booked. We had the choice of this hotel two backpackers or a lodge that cost $5800 for three nights. Suffice to say we chose this nice little joint. Very friendly staff, very tidy rooms, very cheap for what we got and when we got...

Friendly and efficient check in and check out. Despite being older buildings you can tell the owners have invested money in maintaining the motel. It is spotlessly clean with pleasing decor. We had a full kitchen in our unit and ample parking. Immaculately presented room and beds were amazing and made for a comfortable stay. It felt just like home....

Staff were very helpful, friendly and offered discounts to some tours and attractions! Parking is just in front of your unit, the room is huge with fully equipped kitchen facilities. Room is comfortable, clean and well-maintained. There is a hot pool in the motel and it is located near supermarket and restaurants. Highly recommended!

Wonderful place. We stayed for 6 nights while visiting different locations around Rotorua and Taupo. It's very cosy and clean. The beds were comfortable and the kitchen had everything we needed. The host were very nice and welcoming, and the service was great

Fairy Springs will always be our first port of call if staying overnight in Rotorua. They provide spacious room for our family. The units are pristine clean and comfortable. The owners are awesomely friendly and after our first stay know our name now when we call to book. Would highly recommend for family requiring comfortable accomodation.

Although at first impressions it looks a little run-down this is a great choice for accommodation in Rotorua. The rooms are really clean and spacious. It is within a few mintues walk of many of the main activities including Rotorua Canopy Tour, Skyline, Rainbow Springs and Mini golf. The hosts are friendly and helpful.

Spaceous family units with all the necessary convenients for a good night's stay. Handy location to the Gondola as it's next door. This is not a motel for the picky traveler as it is a an older style motel and for those on a budget however I think that the owners have done a great job at providing great value...
