Our motel rooms were spacious, with the second room being self contained also! The kitchen was large with a good cooker. The spa, although not used, was very clean. The rooms were serviced daily and bed was very comfortable.

We loved staying here. Our unit was spotless, comfortable and well equipped, with its own spa on the back deck. It was the lovely gardens ( enhanced by a stream with watercress and trout right below our window!) and facilities that impressed me the most but it was also very quiet. The food in the restaurant there was excellent and...

We held a 21st Teacher training reunion here and it was fabulous. It took a while to find everyone, and set a date, but the staff at the "Brook Bar and Bistro" and the Motel the Braeside Best Western alongside it, were very patient. They were most welcoming, being able to book accommodation at the venue meant that locals and...

This is a very nice little hotel. We stayed in a room overlooking the trout stream. It was spacious and well equipped, and the beds were very comfortable. The receptionist was extremly helpful. We did not try the outside spa bath, as we were too busy sightseeing. The guests are asked to not use the spa baths after a certain...

Visited Rotorua for a few days last week whilst visiting the Hobbit Trilogy. Directly across from the Skyline. Very friendly and informative staff, discounts for all major attractions. Rooms spotless, clean and tidy. Park vehicle directly outside front door. I wouldn't stay anywhere else now.

The counter lady (sorry not sure if owner or receptionist) was very friendly and made things very easy, recommended us activities to do in Rotorua, and had some discount cards. The room wasn't huge, but it was comfortable and warm, everything were there. Would return. Right opposite the skyline and a few activities, so even though not right in town...

Great welcome, and very accomodating. We had checked we could bring our dog too, and this was no problem. The location is very convenient, and we made full use of the facilities. We used the spa pool, mini golf, had dinner delivered to the room. The food was excellent. The rooms were clean, and comfortable.
