We enjoyed our stay here very much. Everything was clean and comfortable. The spa suite is great, perfect way to unwind. Our room was beautifully decorated and had everything we needed and more. Our hosts were a wonderfully friendly and helpful couple and we would happily stay again.

We recently stayed here for 5 nights and loved it. Initially a bit worried about being given the first unit as you enter the property (privacy, noise etc) but ended up being fine. The curtains keep out the light and noise was never a problem. Massive spa in the bathroom which was definitely handy after a day of exploring the...

The Silver Fern was amazing from start to finish. We were there for 2 nights on our honeymoon and so of course we had the Honeymoon Suite complete with spa pool! Was so relaxing and the views were great! The staff were very helpful and gave us great tips about the weekly night market which was awesome! The room was...

My husband and I spent a night at this motel. I think it was probably the cleanest and best motel I have stayed at. Our room was big and we had a big private spa. The bed was so comfy. Shower area is roomy and good water pressure from the shower head. Luxurious bathrobes were included in the room. It...

We had have a nice relaxing stay at Silver Fern Rotorua. The bed was comfy and warm. The bathtub/spa is huge, nice to soak there after the long drive. The owners are very friendly and welcoming. The only one downside, not for this hotel but for Rotorua in general, is the sulphur smell. It's practically everywhere.

We had a lovely view from our room (room 11), looking towards the geyser. Staff were friendly and helpful. Very accommodating as we had our 16 month old with us. They made up the porta-cot into a lovely bed for her.

Even though we were given the disabled room it did not disappoint. The room was very roomy and welcoming. The enormous spa bath was a real treat. It was very easy to find and the hosts Carole & Paul (I think - sorry if I got that wrong) were extremely friendly and helpful. I would definately stay here if I...

Paul and Carole run a very tight ship. The rooms are immaculately clean. Lovely plush bathrobes are supplied and an in-room spa bath is a great way to relax after a hard day on your feet. It's a bit of a walk to the central eateries but many restaurants deliver to your room, even the local top restaurant Urbano. I...

I stayed a total of 3 nights for the purpose of the Teachers Conference at the Rotorua Events Centre. I rang a day beforehand to see if I could book my husband and two children to stay with me that first night as we decided to come through for a little holiday with them and my husband - I said...

We stayed here for 3 nights. Plenty of space for a family of 5. Kitchen facilities basic but enough to cook a simple meal so we didn't always have to eat out. Complimentary use of washing machine was great as we were very dirty from our outdoor activities. Complimentary DVDs to borrow was also a nice touch. Very helpful and...
