Recent guest reviews

Allan and Shirley were great hosts! We stayed at the Silver Fern for a couple nights during our honeymoon. The room was lovely and had a nice patio. The laundry facilities were a lifesaver, and all the recommendations they gave us for our time there were great! It's too bad it's not a bit closer to downtown, but it wasn't a huge deal.

Overall a great experience and option to stay. We were a traveling with a group of three friends and found this spacious and comfortable place to stay. Parking was very close to the room. This motel is situated on a road which has many other motels. This was also close to the centre and around 15 minutes drive to the airport. The famous Polynesia spa is also less than 10 minutes drive away. Most establishments seem to close early evening but the fast food places looked open late. Additionally, Allan at Silver Fern was responsive and very helpful in finding and shipping a lost item (we realized after leaving) to another location. Overall great experience. Thank you!

We stayed at the Silver Fern for 2 nights including New Year’s eve, as part of our 18 days holiday in New Zealand. The suites are very spacious and good for a family of four. Kids loved the jacuzzi in the suite. Management very friendly and really helped with good advice on what attractions to cover in the short time we had in Rotorua. Location is great as very close to Eat Street and also Redwood Treewalk. Highly recommended for family stay.

Spent 3 nights here and thoroughly enjoyed it. Rooms are spacious and clean and the private spa is a nice extra and good to come home to if you have been out exploring all day. Beds are comfy and plenty of pillows to chose from. Would definitely return when in Rotorua again.

We stayed at the Silver Fern Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. It was one of the best hotels we stayed at during our 17 day tour of New Zealand. Activities in Rotorua are easily accessible from the location of the hotel. We stayed in a one bedroom suite, with a pull out couch. The suite was a good size, very comfortable for our family of four. It was well appointed, and had everything that we needed. We loved that breakfast was delivered to our room in the morning and we could eat it in our suite. Would fully recommend a stay at this hotel

The Silver Fern was only our second stop of 8 hotels in New Zealand, and we kept coming back to what a wonderful stay we had. Our room had large windowed sliding doors on two sides. Although the room was not large, it had just the right amount of space and had a nice sink area and an extremely large bathroom with a clean and nice Jacuzzi tub. The bed was the most comfortable bed we slept in in New Zealand! I got a great massage at the spa. We ordered breakfast to our room in the morning before we left and it was delicious. We would happily come back and stay at the Silver Fern again.

Wonderful hotel with great service and a fun family owned vibe. Fantastic water pressure in the shower! The place is little off from downtown but they do have bicycles that they lend for your convenience!

We used this motel for a one night stay in Rotorua. We were impressed how well the property was maintained. Check in was efficient.Room had outdoor sitting area which was great although a bit noisy with road traffic.

good sized rooms with plenty of room and whirlpool if wanting to relax after a stressful day of mountain biking in the forests. All necessary equipment for basic breakfast.Location ideal if you have a car,but quite a walk to the eating street. Staff very friendly and helpful,only minus is there isnt really a quiet terrace where you can sit and enjoy an evening glass of wine.

The Silver Fern motel offers spacious rooms with good facilities in a good location Parking is available outside your room Silver Fern is about 25 minutes walk from the centre of Town but there is plenty of parking if you prefer to drive
