Had a nice night at the Motel in Unit 2, it was clean and comfortable. The only thing wrong with Unit 2 is that there isn't a power point beside the bed to plug my laptop into. The power point by the TV isn't much use unless you've got an extension cord. Had a lovely swim in the Pool though!!!

We stayed at this hotel on a Saturday night in February and it was lovely. The room was large, comfortable, clean and very well furnished. We had room #7 at the back of the small complex and was on its own next to the laundry & mineral spa pool. We didn't hear a sound from either and slept very well...

Although the motel needs a bit of updating the rooms are still lovely and it's in a great location central to Rotorua. The road it's on is a main road so it's great if you have a car but may be a bit far out of the way if you don't. To make it easier we've summed up the main...

We were pretty tired and had had a full day walking in Rotorua. We got into the geothermal pool and let our cares drift away. The room was immaculate and very comfortable. Its in a great location within walking distance to Eat Street and the night markets on a Thursday.

The owner was not welcoming upon my arrival, seemingly focused more on my parking ability than on assisting in checking us in. Similarly when I asked about the wifi, the reaction was that all the info was in the guest services book in the room - I felt I was disturbing him rather than him realising I was a paying...

In addition to the convenient location, quiet and well-furnished room, graceful mineral spa facilities etc.; the motel service is pragmatic and commendable. To our requests, the hotel-keeper has helped book Mitai shows, and mindfully offered us discount coupons to save some bucks. It is most appreciated that we left a jacket in the room, the hotel-keeper notified us by email,...

Great motel which was very clean and lovely and warm. Manager paid great attention to us and showed us the facilities. Loved that we had a private hot pool which we could go into. We only stayed one night but would happily stay longer if we could.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Red Rock Thermal Motel is a small motel with thermal heating, a private thermal mineral spa pool for rejuvenating after a busy day sightseeing and a outdoor heated swimming pool. We have gardens to relax in with a trampoline for the kids. All units have tea & coffee facilities, kitchenettes and bathrooms. The Motel is ideally situated to tour the many geothermal parks in the area. Many of the Maori Culture shows offer a free pick up service from here for a great night out, or if you prefer you can simply walk out of our back gate, catch yourself a trout from the stream & cook it on the BBQ. ... more   less
