We stayed at Rotovegas for 2 nights on a trip with friends and were extremely impressed. The motel makes the most of Rotorua's geothermal proclivities with hot spa baths throughout the rooms, a large heated pool and even a plunge pool - which was VERY welcome for recuperating after a cross-country race in the morning. The owners were friendly, funny...

Hi tmesiz Thanks for the glowing review and well done on the cross country race. Rotorua has so many great events all year round we find people really enjoy our outdoor heated pool which we keep between 33 and 37 degrees so perfect for the after event soak. We also have a sauna to help relax those muscle both of...

I would categorise this motel as a good three star establishment. The rooms are a little tired, but this is reflected in the price. The children enjoyed the small outdoor pool. It's at the town end of Fenton Street, so within walking distance of the CBD. I'd stay again.

I recently stayed for 2 nights in a 'Large Studio with Spa Pool'. The room was clean, tidy and had everything I could have wanted. The motel was in a great location, with easy access to local shops, cafes and activities. The customer service was fantastic, from the front desk to housekeeping. Can't wait to come back one day!

Perfect for our trip to Rotorua! Close to town, free parking, laundry facilities, great outdoor area for bbqs / evening meals and really spacious rooms. Definitely worth the price. We probably didnt need to pay extra for a spa bath in our room (given the hot pools in the area) but I'm sure others may utilise it more than we...
