We stayed here two nights during our holiday in New Zealand. Our room was clean and spacious. The motel is handily placed for all the attractions in Rotorua. The owners were very helpful and offered discount vouchers to various attractions.

The motel was clean and within walking distance to the town center and attractions such as the Rotorua Museum, Eat Street and Polynesian Spa. The hotel was also located next to a shopping complex and supermarket which for us was very convenient. We particularly enjoyed the two mineral pools and heated swimming pool at the motel. The manager was most...

Our agent booked us into this motel and I wish they hadn't. The only good thing I can say is that it was clean. The unit was very dated, the fittings were old and tired and cream painted breeze blocks are plain depressing. As others have said it was very hot and there was no air con or fan. The...

Yes the room was dated and no air conditioning but it was clean and the people we're friendly. I think a little overpriced for it's age but decent size rooms. Easy walk to the town. Would I stay again yes if was cheaper.

Best thing was the location. Parked the car after activities out all day, then could easily walk to shops, restaurants and supermarket across the road. Good budget accommodation for a family. New owner was friendly and helpful. Kitchen was well stocked, although we never cooked. Mineral spa baths and heated pool were great. Only negative was the shower base made...

Stayed for one night. We had an upstairs room which was a good size and tidy but had a 70's to 80's look about it. It was a hot day and the room had no air conditioning so we had all the windows and main door open but wasn't doing much to cool the place down. So i think the...

A good motel right on the edge of the CBD and within a 10-15 minute walk of the Polynesian Spa (and directly opposite a supermarket, which is handy). The kitchen has both a microwave and a stove, and the studio accommodation has a decent-sized sleeping/lounge area. Top marks to the proprietors too - they're very friendly and helpful. :)

My partner and I stayed here on our recent holiday to the North Island. We found the room to be clean and comfortable, with a good size. The location is convenient because it is across the road from the main shopping centre in Rotorua, and a short walk from the main town area, including Eat Street. The natural mineral pools...

We both have cpap machines and despite bringing a power board with a 1.5 metre cord with us this would not reach the tv point -the only one in the room. Nor was it possible to move the bed. This has not been a problem anywhere else. However excellent range of shops across the road and we were able to...

Hi Jock, Thanks for the review but there is a couple of your points that are not correct. The Unit you stayed in #7 which is a twin studio with a Queen & Single bed,...at the foot of the single bed there is a power point so you didn't have to use the TV point you also didn't have to...

While in Rotorua we spent two nights here. When we arrived the owner was kind enough to help us carry our bags to our room. The room was clean and comfortable.
