Fair 4.0
Friendly staff and good location, but the place is dated and the beds are really terrible. Overall it's okay, but the uncomfortable beds really make it hard to recommend this hotel.

Great motel, even better service and staffs
Auro Accommodation is newly renovated and everything is kinda under simple and clean design. Especially their front office, a lot of helpful information about Rotorua is just on their blackboard. They have heated pool, mineral water spa, and bikes/scooter to borrow for free. Their staffs are very friendly and helpful, Erin, one of the kindest staff, showed my rooms and everything I need to know. I especially love their free BBQ area, which I could make something I love using local meat and vegetables. I would highly recommend this place to others and I will stay here again if possible.
