Location good about 20 minute walk into main restaurant area. Got picked up from here for Maori experience, drove to Hobbiton and Waiotapu thermal park also went to hot water spa in the town which was lovely but girls if you go there are no hairdryers so take one with you. The motels manager is very friendly and helpful there...

We stayed 2 nights in Rotorua. Super clean rooms, they made our beds and cleaned the room giving us fresh towels. The mini kitchenette is a plus. Local tour buses can pick you up from there. The manager was ready to please, offered her assistance to anything we needed and on check in gave us some good tips on the...

Very dated rooms, fixtures and appliances. Rooms are very basic, dust on fixtures. The bathrooms are not clean, mouldy shower curtain and shampoo /body wash dispenser. Cracked hand basin and tiered towels. No attention to any detail, there isn't even any forks among the tiers cutlery in the cupboard.

Small but clean rooms. Ok beds and good wifi. The motel is situated near the city centre. The breakfast is not good (consists of weak coffee, toast, jam and cereals), but the staff is really friendly. Overall an okay place to stay, but not for more than a night or two.

Arriving in Rotorua after 9pm we weren't expecting the friendliest of receptions. But what a pleasure to be so warmly welcomed by the friendliest manageress I've ever come across! She welcomed us in, took time to explain local attractions, and pointed us towards Eat Street for a late dinner. Our studio room was small and simple but had everything we...

This wasn't bad for the price we paid. Its a fairly basic room with a mini kitchenette. Wasn't anything flash but meet our needs. The staff was very helpful, offering us discount vouchers for local attractions, just talk to them about what you plan to do. They offer a laundry service of $5 to wash and $5 to dry, all...

It was really hard to find a decent motel for last minute in Rotorua. We ended up here. This motel is little bit old fashioned and located not exactly in the downtown but they are trying to keep up with good service... Be aware of the bad smell going into your room from the local geyser.

With the management change a decline in standards is evident.Rooms not serviced as well as before-breakfast quality has gone backwards-no Sky tv in dining room-reception staff not as friendly as previous owners.

Reasonably modern model though the bathrooms are tired and cramped. Fairly basic kitchen amenities but nice and clean. Within easy walk of the town centre and restaurants. Off main roads so relatively quiet at night. No Sky which is surprising these days.

The room provided was according to what the motel promised. The room was clean and efficient. The mini refrigerator was large enough to keep drinks cold and to store any possible left over food from restaurant visits. Some basic kitchen eating utensils were provided as well as a microwave. A tea kettle was included along with tea and powdered coffee...
