The room was clean, tidy, and very quiet. She also recommended I...

Our stay was less than welcoming. We checked in at 3:35pm which is well inside tolerable timings. Upon checkin we were charged a surcharge for being international visitors though our payment method was a global wallet with new zealand currency loaded on it. After checkin we checked our emails and realized that right on 2pm our booking had been cancelled...

Close to the city this motel is a gem. Nice unit with 3 beds and bathroom up stairs and bed and bathroom down. Well fitted out kitchen for our breakfast and comfortable bed were what we wanted and we got. An extra bonus was the thermal pool in the unit and a private courtyard. A good stay.

Rotorua is not short of available number of short stays. We picked the next available one and had reasonable trip advisor rating. A studio with plunge pool was taken. Wash area is basic, small, squashed and had an old tired look. The plunge pool is set dead centre, made of concrete/mosaic decor. Looks uninviting but the recycled city water radiates...

My partner and I stayed here for one night recently. Greeting on arrival was pleasant, and the motel is an older style but the room was spacious. The kitchen supplies were sufficient, the bed was comfy and the plunge pool didn't disappoint. One of the light bulbs had blown making it a darker room than it already was and one...

A family trip to Rotorua was ruined because of our stay with Midway motel. We rented a family studio for 2 days for five adults and two children. When we got there the studio didn't look new at all. There were black marks on the wall with lot of wear and tear. We asked for a cot for the baby...

A group of friends and family booked out a large suite. We had two floors but still felt a little cramped, was adequate for a single night with the 6 of us inside. Washroom facilities were again OK, nothing special and did the trick although you had to bypass a bed to gain access. Included hot tub was a little...

We stayed at the Midway Motel on the 08th April for 2 nights in 2 rooms as we took our parents, and were in Rotorua for our daughters sport. I booked the Midway Motel as we were paying for both rooms, and the rate was very affordable, plus it had the bonus of a hot pool in the room. This...
