    Central and within walking distance.

    Our stay was for a night at the Rotorua Motel and we enjoyed being minutes from cbd, eating places, Polynesian spa and the Aquatic Centre.

  • 2.0.Poor

    Avoid at all costs!!

    Really not a pleasant stay at this motel. Stayed in room number 8 and all night I could hear either rats or mice scurrying around in the ceiling space. Told the owners the next day and I was told "no no it must be bird, it must be bird" 100% was not birds!! Really not a nice motel at all, rooms are very very basic and just doesn't have a clean feeling to it. Travel to Rotorua alot for business and will never ever stay in this rat infested dump again.

    Comfortable, warm everything we required and more. A booking for four ended up with just the two of us so there was plenty of room, but even so we found it well appointed, clean, friendly and we had a good night sleep after an extended family gathering!!

    Home away from home

    A little outdated but pleasant decor. An extractor fan in shower would be good. Adequately clean. Ideal location for shopping, supermarket, food and to local attractions. Unfortunately had to leave a day early due to a late hospital appointment.

    A great place but check the bed.

    The motel was clean & tidy , the room had a full kitchen & the pools were great, our only complaint was a rather tired mattress, we didnt sleep well & my wife is now going to a chiropractor to relieve the lower back pain.

    They were very understanding about our late check in after we knew we were going to be later than expected. Room was absolutely fine, would have liked some better pillows however.
