We needed a place to stay to relax and contemplate our next move after a tough few days of extreme hiking that left us exhausted and semi paralyzed. This motel happened to be an unexpected cure for the hardship of the roads that we endured. Thanks , a great deal , to the hospitality of the owners: Peter and Tristen...

This is a really nice place and the people who run it are extremely helpful. The room was clean, the bed was comfortable, and there were plenty of pillows. It had a kitchenette with a microwave, fridge, toaster, coffee maker, instant coffee, tea, basic dishes, salt and pepper, etc. There was even a tap with filtered water. The bathroom had...

The motel is located off the main street and centrally located, which is great. We stayed in a spa room, which was a good size and the spa was great. The owners were great to deal with, assisting where they could. We loved Rotorua and would love to go back. Just have to get used to that smell

Pete & Tristen were great hosts and went out of their way to make my stay comfortable and fun. Since I didn't have a car, they picked me up at bus stop and dropped me off at the airport at the end of my stay. Pete also drove me to the Agrodome without hesitation. The best customer service I've ever...

Everything was clean, and we had all the amenities that we needed to live inside our unit. I only spent one night at Sport of Kings, but had a French Press, coffee, milk and teapot provided that all worked perfectly. The hot tub in the back of our unit was pleasant and clean, and we took advantage of it. TV's...
