Recent guest reviews

Family holiday from Oz with 2 teenage boys. Very helpful on arrival with tour info provided at reception then full tour of room and TV 'training'. Very clean great a/c and quiet location - managers go above and beyond to assist !!!

The room was very spacious and well equipped (included a Netflix account!), reception contained an abundance of information and discount vouchers for attractions in Rotorua, with helpful and friends staff. The only thing we could’ve done with was air conditioning. While fans were provided, it was a very hot summer’s day and night. Overall a great little place, conveniently located for restaurants and attractions.

I booked a double room and on arrival was offered an upgrade which I declined because didn’t need it. Before going to the room we were offered advice and brochures and discounts on attractions around Rotorua. We had a two level unit, bathroom with large spa bath and bedroom downstairs and another bedroom with lounge, small balcony, kitchen and table and chairs upstairs. The room was clean and ready, we were given clear instructions on how to use the tv and phone and free unlimited wifi. There is parking for one car outside each unit. We were very surprised at the value for money at this motel and will definitely return when visiting Rotorua in the future.

Stayed here for two nights en route from Wellington to Auckland for the final Lions Rugby test. Have to be honest I only picked it because it was cheap and looked okay. I was very surprised that it was very good quality, clean, modern and comfortable. The owner and his wife were a young Chinese couple very helpful and obliging. Even though I was travelling alone I was given a spacious two bedroom unit. If I had any complaint and it would be minor, there were only about 5 channels on the tv. About 30 minutes walk heading toward the lake is an excellent large shopping centre with all the major NZ stores, fast food etc. I would recommend this motel.

We had a great experience!! They offered us an upgrada for a better suite (a complete apartment) and the owners are very polite, was fantastic. The apartment was a lovely surprise!! We enjoy the city and the motel have a great location. The Wi-Fi was fantastic!!

I spent 2 nights with my girlfriend here and it was very confortable. Very clean and the owners are very good people. I recomend it. It's a very good balance between price and Quality. You have supermarket about 10 minutes walking. And 20 minutes from the city center Best regards

We spent the night here, it is well presented , clean and tidy and the price was good. It is handy to shops and activities in Rotorua. Some of the parking is tricky if you have a large car but it is off the street.

Good and bad here. But had to rate below average. Paid way too much as a person staying on their own. Next door was 30% cheaper. Bed comfortable with a new heat pump to keep you warm. Reception dude was friendly but sterile. Explained about TV channels that was very complicated. Only four sky channels!! Place is very tired looking. I hate the cheap toilet paper thing where it's off a roll like a public toilet. Shower cubicle was tiny with funny plastic doors. Tried cooking breakfast and element on stove had one speed: flat out! There was no fan to extract the burnt bacon smell and the smoke detectors were not working. Place was clean. Internet was good. But am sure you can do better in a very competitive market.

We were quite happy with this refuge in the rain. The rooms are big and clean. There is a whirlpool in the bathroom, the bed is comfortable and the kitchenette is fully equipped. Within 15 min walk one direction you are at supermarkets and 15 minutes the other way you reach Te Puia. It's 5 minutes by car or 30 mins walk to the center of Rotorua.

There was nothing wrong with this motel at all. The rooms are huge and spotless. The bed is comfortable, there is a spa in the bathroom and the kitchenette is fully equipped. It is a 15 min walk to supermarkets and 30 mins to the i-site in central Rotorua. It is also 15 min walk to Te Puia. The couple who run it were very friendly and extremely helpful. I can't thank them enough for helping me when I needed their assistance.
