Good 7.4 From 341 reviews

Poor 2.0
Heed the other poor reviews! I wish we read them before booking. The room had mold on the bedding (I am allergic to mold - an employee brought a new sheet for me), mold in the carpets, dead bugs all over the roller blinds, dried blood splatted on the wall behind the bathroom vanity, extensive mildew in the tile grout. There were HUGE spiders in every corner of the room. How does housekeeping not see that to clean them out? I awoke with an itchy rash on my arm (don't know if I got bitten by something in my sleep or if it was mold allergy), and was completely congested and had a hard time breathing. It was so nasty; a truck stop hotel for $40US would've been in better condition. We booked based off the pictures - note that the photos are over-exposed to make it look whiter and clean. The hotel was filthy, run down, and overall in disgusting condition. On top of this, the neighboring room was arguing so loudly and fighting for hours with a screaming baby (probably screaming due to their fighting) and we could not sleep. The manager said he couldn't change our room because they were booked, but he did knock on their door to tell them to be quiet. He should have called the police. We would have left if we weren't so exhausted from driving all day and had a 5YO with us; also we weren't sure any other place had vacancy. I would have slept in our car if I felt safe, but I did not feel safe at all, especially with the neighboring room fighting so much.

Fair 4.0
We found that the room was very tired and needed some very simple maintenance. The basin in the bathroom didn't drain and then leaked out everywhere, the sink in the kitchen wouldn't hold water for long enough to wash dishes, there was an apple and two old wrinkled carrots left in the fridge, the dish washing detergent was in a drinking mug in the cupboard under the sink, the extra blankets were crumpled up in a mess on the floor in the cupboard, there was no information booklet about the complex in the room and there were cobwebs in the corners. All very minor things that didn't really effect our stay but would have made our experience that little bit nicer and many would only cost a few dollars of have taken a few minutes to improve.

Good value hotel for a family with car in Rotorua
We stayed three nights - 2 adults, 2 children (13 and 15). Modern heating was on when we got there which was a good start. Unusual in NZ motels in my experience (they're often also impossibly to keep on at night but these weren't). The person at reception (owner) did all he could to make us welcome and make our stat good. There is a great hot pool, and the owner let me stay in it later than normal times as a large group had been in before us. Also a swimming pool so a good thing to have in Winter. Very close to town and central attractions. Would be good to have a kitchen sink and toaster in room but otherwise very nice. Eco friendly bathroom supplies a bonus too. I recommend it.

Great for families, central, clean and value for $
Hotel staff were great, friendly and accommodating. Location was perfect Didn't get to use the pool or spa as it was too cold this time of year, but if the weather was warmer it would have been great Rooms were clean, tidy, and all you need. Heaters were great! Maybe a lock on the bathroom or toilet would have been nice with 5 people sharing. Rooms are old and you can see that and hear the creeks in the stairs etc, but they've kept the decor and modern and done some renovations to keep the rooms up to date. Could have done with some more lighting in the downstairs sitting area, was very dim at night. Overall we enjoyed our stay and would stay here and again and recommend to family & friends Thanks!

Very good 8.0
Nice and close to tourist attractions.
Great experience and we would definitely return to both this hotel and Rotorua. Very quiet little spot. Hotel facilities and staff were great. Kids loved the swimming pool, they absolutely thrashed it. Our room was lovely and quiet and very clean. Added bonus of having free wifi too. It was awesome to have the staff asking of our plans and offering advice and giving us voucher to suit what we were doing, also they were great with giving directions too. Very clear and also spot on. Just wished we had more time in Rotorua as there is so much to do. Would recommend this hotel to our family and friend! A A A A+ rating.
