Clean and comfortable. Friendly staff. Close to Hobbiton. Laundry services are on site. It's handy not having to go to a laundromat. The staff was on hand if you needed anything or had any questions. We enjoyed our stay.

Stayed here for just one night and was pleasantly surprised at how neat and tidy the room was. We had a studio room with kitchenette, had all the extras like a coffee plunger, milk, bickies, plenty of towels etc. The only thing that could be faulted is that the room had no bath 😓 however I would definitely stay here...

I stayed here in August, and I had an upstairs room. The room was large with a very big bathroom, a good sized kitchen area with the usual supplies, and a very comfortable bed. The motel appears to be an older style which is reflected in the style, presentation, and slightly dated look, and some wear was visible. The room...

We opted this motel as it's cheap and near to the Hobbiton Movie Set. We just had to drive for about 12-15 minutes in order to arrived at the Shire. The bathroom of the motel was huge for a room for 2 persons and the room is well equipped with kitchen utensils. We were there for the winter, and the...

If I could give a negative 5, I would. Four of my friends and I booked this hotel for our trip to Hobbiton. 12 minutes before getting to the hotel, we got into a car accident, and all 5 of us were taken by ambulance to the ER, requiring us to stay the entire night. I had contacted the motel...

This hotel was ok but had lots of flies and no air-con! So very hot that it made sleeping uncomfortable. Rooms were clean enough but very basic. It was good enough for a place to sleep but no luxury here. Staff were very helpful!

Convenient location, close to city center large,and modern enough. But the microwave rotary didn't go around, the carpets seemed a bit smelly and unclean. Also, in the bathroom the hair dryer didn't work at all, so we couldn't dry our hair and it was fairly chilly outside. All in all, would recommend finding a better place to stay especially for...

There are 4 adults so in one of the larger units. It is spacious enough and has most of what we need. The only down fall I have encounted is there is no lock on the bathroom door. I am a female, the other 3 males. I have had to advise the males that the bathroom door closed means someone...

First of all, we would like to thank the hotel staff who made an extra effort and have agreed to wait for us, as we have arrived past the normal check in time - we have spent an evening in Rotorua enjoying the Maori show and have arrived at O'Reilly's Motel past 21:00. All rooms were ready, and were spacious...
