Tania, nz3 night family trip
Very good 8.0
Three interesting days in Rotorua.
Our few days were really lovely Good weather and the Birchwood Motel and Spa was a pleasant walk to the Whakarewarewa Thermal Village. Whakarewarewa was well managed with informative guides. The Redwood Forests were delightful with well maintained paths and very easy to walk even for the elderly like us. These were specifically what we went to Rotorua for although there were many other things that we did. Birchwood Motel and Spa needs a little TLC and unfortunately the spa was not able to deliver any jets but the water was hot. The staff were very polite and when asked to clean something for me they did with a smile. Management apologised for the lack of jets in the spa and said that he did not know it was not working. However the bedding was clean and smelled fresh as did the room. The bathroom was a little awkward with the door being so wide.I actually got my toe stuck under the door trying to negotiate the space. But overall I think that with a little effort in hanging the curtains properly and making sure that pots are cleaned and minor things that Birchwood is not a bad place to stay for a couple of days.If the gardens were a little more tidy we would have been able to sit outside but I am sure that at the end of what must have been a busy season we can imagine that at another time all would have been very pleasant.Traffic noise was a annoying at night but we cannot blame that on anyone as life goes on,... we are not all on holiday.

Good room, service not so good.
Very cosy room had an upstairs room. Parking was confusing but we got there in the end. Wifi excellent and very good amenities for the room. Bed very comfortable and clean room. Service very basic could've been more welcoming (sign here, here's your key and room is around the corner upstairs) otherwise a good stay for a couple nights. First impressions count I guess and it starts with the service.

Fair 4.0
No hot water for the spa, was Luke warm, disappointed as we chose the room for the spa. Heater only in main living area not in bedroom. Glad we brought our own heater as is was -1 degrees that night! Facilities a bit old.

Very Average
Stayed 2 nights, upon check-in was given some milk for our room. The next day, there was no milk in our room, so proceeded to reception, to be told by the receptionist that they do not hand out milk on the second night. How pathetic

Helpful manager on site
Toilet leaked. Fixed promptly by management. The people upstairs left the tap on and flooded their unit. Our unit bathroom floor was wet. Management was very apologetic.

Good room good price
It was a nice room right next to Whakarewarewa and Redwoods. However, a bit far from restaurants. It is a lovely area, but we got woken up by a truck passing by in the morning (it is located off a state highway).
