We stayed at Six on Union for two nights in May, 2016. The room was very clean and well equipped. Everything we needed and a fabulous location. The motel is located a short distance (walking) to all sites, shops, and restaurants. The owners, Lisa and Tony, were the best. Friendly, knowledgable, and willing to go out of their way to...

A friend and I went to New Zealand and, while in Rotorua, stayed at the wonderful inn, Six on Union. The suite was beautifully appointed, the location convenient and the owners, Lisa and Tony, made us feel welcome. They are knowledgeable about the things to do and see. They made our stay, once again, a delight.

Stayed in room 5 on 30.04.16. the room was musty and gloomy. The chain on the plug for the sink pulled out of the wall. The toilet rocked on its pedestal. The cheap plastic bathroom basin had what looked like burn marks in it. The sheets were 101% polyester, like sleeping in a shower curtain. Wifi was shaky and hard...

At first read we thought you must have stayed elsewhere but realised that it was a different unit you stayed in. We believe the root of this is that you were not happy with the price, agreed to by your companion should you have gotten out of the car you could have had some imput, and an average price in...

We really enjoyed our stay here - quiet, comfortable, and clean - also, very well located to shopping, center of town, etc. The owner/managers - Lisa and Tony were very pleasant. We appreciated Tony's sense of humour. We would certainly stay here again.

This was ideal - very friendly and helpful owners, adorable cats, a quiet, leafy street, just a few minutes walk from shops and cafes. The units are attractive, clean and comfortable. Have been back several times.

We have just returned from another stay at this cosy, quiet, clean motel over the Easter holiday weekend, our home away from home. Hosts, Lisa and Tony are very friendly. Within 3 minute walk to Mall and a good walk to the lakefront and cafés.

Thanks , sorry you could not have your usual suite but hope next door was up to scratch. Don't buy a house in Rotorua to soon we can't afford to lose regulars like you.

Owner was very friendly and personable! The place is older, so if you're looking for flash and modern, this is not the place. If you want a quiet, clean, and comfortable place to stay this is a great choice.

First arriving to Rotorua with my friend we checked in at a different hostel which was extremely terrible. We fled while it was raining dogs and cats and couldn't find a place to sleep because it was holiday weekend. The owners of six on union had no room for the whole weekend eather. But they gave us one for the...
