The motel is in a great location, across the road from a shopping centre and a short 5 minute walk to the CBD. The owners are friendly and prepared to go out of their way to assist - nothing was too much trouble. A continental breakfast was included in the tariff and we also availed ourselves of the onsite laundry...

We stayed for a couple of days. Our room was lovely and the location of the hotel was excellent. The breakfast was simple but plenty of it so no need for lunch later. Vince the owner was very helpful with places to go and directions. We enjoyed our time in Rotorua.

I appreciated that it was away from the main road where most of the motels situate themselves in Rotorua, as the main road is rather busy. It was a bit disappointing that the only cooling was a small fan or the windows, aircon would probably be a stretch to install but a ceiling fan would be a great start. Nice...

We stayed here for 2 nights and can't praise the Accolade Motel enough. Vince was very helpful and informative. The room and breakfast made it excellent value for money. Parking right outside the room,shops and restuarants all very close . It was very quiet making for a good night's rest. We would certainly return.

My husband and I stayed here overnight. From checking in until we left we were made feel very welcome by Vince. He gave us some great helpful tips on what to see and where to go. We appreciated the 10% discount voucher he gave us to visit Wai-O-Tapu Thermal Wonderland which we thoroughly enjoyed.

Stayed there recently whilst on a visit to Rotorua. The room was a bit on the small side but clean and there was no designated hanging space for clothes – it had a couple of hanging hooks and 3 coat hangers. The owner was friendly and provided lots of information. A basic breakfast is included in the price and that...
