    Exceptional 10.0
    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!!

    Good value for money
    Had a lovely stay. Everything we needed and friendly staff. A little wear and tear, but comfortable.

    Rotorua sojourn.
    We found it was a noisy street but handy to supermarket. The check in was good and friendly. Room had a few issues. 2 lights not working but fixed immediately. But all lights went off in evening after a bang. came to put them on but another light not working in am. The toilet seat was far too small for the toilet.and so was uncomfortable. A lovely new wash basin but nowhere to put your toilet bag after use. apart from the floor. With health and safety being to the fore I was surprised to see a pump pot for the soap. One goes to the toilet and washes using the pump on top. I am sure it is not easy to sanitise it each day. I certainly prefer a small cake of soap which we open. The metal fittings, rails, spa jets etc were all corroded but that happens in Rotorua. Lovely bedside lamps but the shades were black and so the light was poor and made reading in bed hard.

    OK.. but need an upgrade
    Other than the motel being in need of an upgrade we had a good stay.

    Good for a Night only!
    I wouldn’t stay here if it was for more than a single night, there were only 3 TV channels and 2 were sport and the other was just whatever movie was going. Poor choice. There were a number of power plugs not working as well as some appliances, like hair fryer. The room itself was spacious and the bed very comfortable and our room was very accessible from the vehicle so great for bags. Overall I’d rate it 7 out of 10.

    The manager was friendly and helpful when we had an issue with the oven at night which he was able to work around for us.

    Good roadtrip pit stop.
    We stayed here for two nights. Good location. Handy for town centre and restaurants. Little kitchen for self catering. Bath/Room clean. Bed and shower ok.

    Geothermal areas in Rotarua with geyser amazing and we also enjoyed the geothermal park at Waimangu. There are lots of restaurants about 10 minutes walk away. The laundrette is about a 5 minute walk but it’s a very busy road to get there . The lady in the laundrette was very helpful. Paths to walk by lake . I had a real job finding somewhere to recycle rubbish. There was a strong smell of sulphur near the motel
