Stayed in room 9. Lisa was very helpful with anything we wanted to know. Supermarket and shopping mall was only a few minutes walk. Handy to Te Puia and some of the other attractions. Would definitely stay here again.

Thank you so much for taking the time to review your stay. Being one of the closer motels to the town centre but away from the busy main road is a real bonus. Your best recommendation is that you'd stay again and we'd love to welcome you back. Many thanks Lisa & Tony

I stayed for a couple of Days on my road trip around New Zealand. Six on Union is walking distance from the Super Market Rotorua centre and Government Gardens and much of Rotorua other attractions. Within a short drive of Rotorua are a number of other Tourist Destinations such as the Green Lake and Blue Lake and Tarawera. I found...

Old motel at very convenient location and comfortable bed. Stayed at room #3, the carpet was sticky and shower water pressure low, but otherwise room is clean. Very unfortunate and inconvenient the room can't get wifi signal and we had to stay outside very close to the office to get signal. Owners were friendly during our stay, but I was...

Hello Henry We're happy that you found our location good & the room clean (can't understand "sticky carpet" they were all cleaned in Dec 2016). When you rang to ask if we'd found your passport we said we hadn't but went back to check the room again, not sure what else we could have done. We trust you found it....

Union on Six is great, good rooms and facilities with a short walk into town. Also across the road is a supermarket and mall in case u need something. It's our new go to place when heading to Rotorua for an adventure weekend. Thoroughly recommend for your next stay. Enjoy.

Roomy and comfortable accommodation in a quiet area, yet very close to the centre and all the services. Lisa and Tony (owners) were absolutely amazing. We got them masses of great tips for our visit in Rotorua. Great value all together! Plus free parking space.

The owners of the hotel very friendly. The rooms are very spacious and very clean especially the shower. The kitchenette was tidy and well thought out. Great to be able to make tea and toast. Could not recommend it highly enough

Loved this motel for the Yorkshire owners and high fiving cat, Bella. The motel is clean, tidy and spacious if not a slightly dated (thus 4 not 5 stars). Wifi is limited but there's is an extensive video library and spa pool to use (not thermal spa waters) and great water pressure . We didn't rate Rotorua though. @leastihadago

Took my two visitors from the US to Rotorua and stayed here. We didn't have a car but it was so close to everything it didn't matter.

Been holidaying here for 10 years. Super friendly owners, complete with resident cat. Close to town yet lovely and quiet. Comfy clean rooms, home away from home, at a reasonable price. Couldn't recommend it high enough.
