Not flashy but still a good reliable accommodation

Clean, reasonably priced, proximity to other location
It is reasonably priced, our group consist of 2 couples so we booked 2 separate rooms. However to our surprise there are 2 single bed and a queen size bed in each of the room. No complaint for the extra room. Location wise, you can see Lake Rotorua from your room and just a 10 minutes walk to the town centre. Most important it is clean and fully furnish with furniture and kitchen equipment.

Customer Service, Location, Rooms
Amazing. The customer service was excellent. It was in a good location to walk to shops and bars also. The lady behind the counter was so lovely!

Good facilites, good price

Peaceful location, hot mineral pool, good room options
We enjoyed the facilities - pools & spa. The room was reasonably clean but the single beds were not very comfortable and there was no room to hang out all the towels to dry (separate towels provided for the pools and for the shower). The hotel itself needs a bit of cleaning and maintenance but nothing to alarm. Staff is helpful.

Good Location, Very Large Rooms

Size, Plenty of Parking, Location
This hotel was very central for us to walk around the central area of Rotorua. Room was very spacious. Probably could have had a couch instead of a third bed, but certainly would have been useful for a travelling family. Staff appear to do a good job cleaning all the rooms.

Our favorite motel in Rotorua

Central but quiet location, thermal pool and friendly staff
We tried several different motels in Rotorua, but return to this one over and over again: by now we have realized this is our favorite. Big advantage is that there is no constant traffic noise at night - the motel is located far from any big roads. Cozy and clean rooms (though not very modern). Good value for money. Its own thermal pool ads to the list of advantages.

Our favorite in Rotorua

Centrally located, quiet area, SPA
Very well located hotel: within walking distance to central restaurants/shops, but quite surrounding so you don't hear traffic at night. Free SPA and heated pools. Nice and clean rooms.

Room is large and clean.

Lake view, spa pool, clean and neat.
The room is large and clean. Out room also have a good view on lake Taupo. The best is the small spa pool just outside our bedroom, which my family enjoy very much, especially in a cool winter night. Just wonderful.
