The Geneva Motor Lodge is situated not far from the centre of Rotorua on the main motel drag. It is mid priced, of moderate quality; clean but looking a bit dated. The management are friendly without being outstanding. All in all the Geneva is middling.

Bill and Cheryl are wonderful hosts and maintain this property in very good order. Walking distance to CBD and room very comfortable with a lovely large spa bath!

Thanks Phil for your comments , and sorry we don't offer AirConditioning (especially with these hot & humid nights we have been having of late) but with the Sulphur here in Rotorua it just never lasts and becomes very expensive there would only be about 1 or maybe 2 Motels that do offer this, one a new property who has...

Modern unit in a good location walking distance to town center. Managers were very helpful in providing suggestions of things to do in and around Rotorua. Room is fairly standard with a basic kitchen Microwave and fry pan only, but was all we needed. Few minutes walk to local restaurant was well worth the recommendation from the hosts.

Excellent price, great place. Provided a safe place to store two of the bikes we had with us, and was extremely helpful when I left something behind. Room was clean and tidy, although air conditioning would have been greatly appreciated. Also, thanks for letting me borrow your tools :)

Managers were very welcoming and helpful. Love that the unit was very clean and in good repair. Price was reasonable. The only down side was the beds were too saggy and soft for us, probably need replacing. The position is convenient and parking is available. Wifi was free, great!

Thank you Leanne for taking the time to review our Motel, Reviews are always appreciated. I am sorry you didn't find your bed so comfortable, Although we don't really get too many complaints about our beds we have replaced a few, it would have been good to know which room your were in so we could have checked,

We usually visit the first Sunday of each month. Geneva is situated just across the road from the racecourse where the Rotorua Jazz Club holds their meetings.

We've now had two visits to this motel. The reason is the great bed, so a wonderful sleep after a hot soak. Even though the weather was cold the unit had a very efficient heater so we were warm and snug.

Enjoyed our last minute stay here. After a long day travelling cross country, we decided to stop for the night. Our hosts were accommodating of our late arrival and provided a great rate considering we had a room with a spa right next to our bed. Would happily stay here again.
