Thank you so much for the awesome experience my daughter and I had recently. Very friendly staff, from the cleaners to the owners, and beautiful units. This will definitely be where we stay every time we come to Rotorua! Highly recommended!

We booked into the Silver Fern on line and didn't realize it was quite a way from downtown. This is not all bad as the sulphur odor that Rotorua is famous for seems stronger the closer you are to downtown. So... Depends what you want. The motel has spacious , well appointed rooms and very helpful staff that were quick...

Group of five of us have now stayed at this motel 3 times. The hosts are welcoming and very helpful. The rooms are immaculately appointed and clean. Our own private spa is handy and it is a short walk to the Urbano Restaurant, another Rotorua favorite. Our king bed was comfortable with crisp sheets. We enjoyed our stay.

Friendly host welcomed us to his establishment and passed on some local knowledge of eateries and places to see. The rooms are spacious and well appointed. The overall presentation of the place is immaculate. Traveling with our son, the two separate king size bedrooms were welcomed by all.

The owners are helpful and kind, and were spot on time with a good breakfast in the morning. The room i had was spotlessly clean. I was a little worried about the drains in the bathroom - but it all worked out OK. Giant spa tub in the bathroom, and the self- catering area was nice too. Quiet location and...

Recently stayed 4 nights at the Silver Fern with my wife, enjoying the sights of Rotorua. Allan and Shirley are very nice hosts, I was impressed with their friendly service in reception and elsewhere. Very nice private spa bath (aka "hot tub") in our bathroom - feels like luxury! Rooms are clean, and basic kitchen facilities (e.g. microwave, bar fridge,...

Nice clean rooms and friendly people. I appreciated the addition of the kitchenette, although it would have been nice to have some way to heat food other than the microwave that was provided. We did get a room with a spa bath which was quite fun for not much more money. Definitely recommended for couples. I didn't try the spa...

We stayed a few nights on our north island trip, great place to stay, close to many things. The staff were great in helping book a few activities. Has a shared laundry for all to share. The large sized spa in our room was a bonus. Quiet with very little road noise, and free wifi, which was a bit slow...

We stayed two nights last week at this lovely hotel. The rooms were big and comfortable, free wifi was great and the spa perfect. The owners were very helpful and helped with the planning of our day trips giving great suggestions of where we could go.

Our family loved this hotel. The service was very personal, and we were well taken care of. It was great to have separate rooms. And my kids loved the private spa. Everything was neat and clean. We would have loved to have stayed more than 1 night.
