My husband was competing in the Swim the Lake at Taupo so the positioning of the motel was perfect.An added bonus was that we could take our little dog with us as the motel was pet friendly,but, A little surprised to be charged $30 for taking the pet. I didn't see anything on the website about a charge.

Great hotel
Needed a place to stay to attend a course. I have stayed there before and was glad to get a room there again. Clean, quiet, good facilities and good location. Only issue was the in-room WiFi was a bit spotty. Will definitely stay there again

So much potential, but needs attention.
We have stayed here several times before and have previously found it fine for our needs. However, this time it was apparent that no maintenance has been done. The board below the shower was rotten and there were several areas of peeling paint. The smoke alarms were flashing - suggesting they are running low on battery. Little things need attention - no bathmat, 1 facecloth for 4 people and no spare pillows for the sofa bed. The room STUNK of fish when we arrived... although fixed by reception when we asked them to, this should have been attended to before our arrival. In addition, money was taken from my account before we had even arrived, let alone checked in. I found this incredibly cheeky, as I do not always use the card that is my default for booking. Fair enough if we were a no show, but the motel helped itself mid to late morning. This has never happened to me before and I would hope it would not happen again! It is a shame, as in all other aspects Adelphi is perfect for our needs, but I don't know that we will be back.

Stayed overnight on my trip to Rotorua, the staff were friendly and obliging, and the room was clean and comfortable.
