Friendly owner. Basic but comfortable room, sufficient for a short stay like ours. Housekeeping were efficient. Bathroom was huge. Overall, it was a good stay and will definitely consider returning and recommending to others.

The spa is definitely the best part of the room and was the reason why we booked this place, the rest of the room is pretty average, the bed was comfy and good wifi but make sure to take your own shampoo and conditioner

The first night there was perfect, nice and quiet and very civilised. The 2nd night however there was a loud party (9 people) three doors down from my unit and I got noise to 4 a.m because of them sitting on the front balcony to smoke. In addition, one of these 9 guests tried erroneously to get into my apartment,... More

Fenton Court offers a great value for price in their two bedroom suite! It is spacious, clean and comfortable. The patio with a spa filled with the famous Rotorua healing hot springs waters was an added bonus! Housekeeping and reception staff were professional and friendly. I would recommend this Motel for Rotorua visitors and will definitely book again!

We stayed for two nights with friends from overseas; whilst the location is good (handy to many attractions etc) but the place is years beyond its best. We were in a 2 bedroom unit - we had a king size bed which suited us but found it too hard (we are used to firm beds, not rock hard); the interior... More

Lovely clean room with excellent outdoor spa. Indigenous Tui (birds) could be heard while relaxing in the spa. When booking ask for an out door pool on the ground level, it's $10 extra per night but worth it.

Good value and easy to book. Check in was smooth and easy with no issues. On site parking is a real plus. Rooms are a good size and bathroom is huge. Not the newest or nicest but it is well maintained and clean.
