Guest reviews

  • Older travelers

    interior colours,cushions,linen etc looked inviting & restful. All was very clean and light.

    The fridge should have been on as we were expected & it is summer.had to ask for a extra bed cover as there was none in unit.Also deluxe studio was much smaller then appeared in online photos.

  • Older travelers

    It is the worst place we have been in New Zealand, and not only there. The pictures put in internet are really misleading. We had a dirty room with poor and old fornitures and with disgusting kitchen and bathroom. The public toilets are better.

  • Older travelers

    I found the staff of Rotorua Motel excellent & fair to deal with. I had problems with my booking which they dealt with efficiently & in friendly manner. They did everything they said they would do when they said they would. Would use again without hesitation.

  • Older travelers

    the outdatedness of bathroom and kitchen, smelt of strong overpowering air fresher

  • Single

    Clean and tidy. Excellent staff.

    In my unit - the stove nor the grill worked, neither did two of the four hot-plates. Quite limiting for cooking when you are staying over a period of time.

  • Older travelers

    A good clean unit, very helpful and friendly staff. Would stay there again.

  • Single

    Convenient location near lake, restaurants, supermarket and shopping centre.

    1) The stinky smell of sulphur coming out of geothermal spa chimney at the back of motel. Don't keep your windows open! 2) The sticky floor in the kitchen and the bathroom. Not the cleanest motel I have seen in NZ

  • Older travelers

    Lovely swimming pool. Very helpful host who made sure we had a comfortable, relaxing stay.

  • Older travelers

    The unit was really well presented, nice touches like bubbles supplied for the giant bath, towels folded like flowers, info given about best times for swimming in the pool and use of the drying room after our swim and to dry our laundry which the host washed!

    Nothing, it was perfect for us.

  • Single


    No hairdryer Alarm not working Remote not working TV from the 60's Curtain hanging off rail Poor decoration Cramped Shabby, at best Proprietor not particularly welcoming, dumped in room with no explanation of anything

  • Couple

    The facilities in the room were very well maintained and very clean. The hostess of the motel was very friendly and willing to assist our trip down to Rotorua as much as possible. Slightly out of town if you don't have a car, nothing major and plus it is very close to the award winning Oppie's Fish and Chips store!

  • Couple

    Location Helpful staff Close proximity to Polynesian Spa Swimming pool

  • Older travelers

    Handy location. Friedly and helpful staff who were able to accomodate our change in plan. Rooms comfortable and spacious. Surprisingly littel noise from outside (road, other units). Great value for money.

  • Older travelers

    Good value for money. Comfortable bed. Friendly hosts. Easy walk to town centre & sights.

    Too much furniture in room .... a bit cluttered. Bathroom very old & dark. Onsite parking a bit tight.

  • Older travelers

    Proprietors friendly and helpful. The accommodation was very comfortable and spacious, but the kitchen area would benefit from updating and a lighter colour of paint on the walls.

    The colour of the kitchen walls and the quality of the kitchen units.
