    Good Price and Quite a Nice Place”

    The location is very stategic, near supermarket and several other restaurants. The hotel design and furniture looked old but quite clean. But there was a subtle sewage smell from the bathroom. The TV had various channels. They also had a hot pool but I didn’t try it. It was a good choice considering the low price.

    Nice place to stay in Rotorua”

    I like Four Canoes as it's not far from the city centre. The kitchen is very huge so you can enjoy making your own food. The swimming pool and garden area is quite good and not a lot of customer use it.

    I got a great deal so it was worth it for me on the first night, but the next night was 2x the price”

    Good local, quite old but my room was clean and had two double beds. The photos on the website are deceiving. If I didn’t get such a good deal, I would get a better hotel for less than what they were going to charge me on the second night. Check all websites, there is big price differences sometimes.

    Fantastic location”

    Very close to town and main shopping street with big supermarkets and souvenir shops. Pretty receptionist very helpful and friendly but there was a male staff whom we mistook for a backpacker because he kept poking about in plain wear like a guest in sandals. Made us uncomfortable as we thought he was up to no good. Nice staff in the kitchen who was very chatty. We did not use the pool but some very noisy kids did. Overall, good value and a comfortable stay.

    I was there for a night. The room is bigger than i expected. With great facilities such as common kitchen, swimming pool and laundry service. The amount I pay is toooo low to compare with the value it offer. I am really glad staying here. Recommended!

    The staff were extremely accommodating and friendly. I had stayed up late to write some postcards, and even though the kitchen was meant to be closed for cleaning, the lady allowed me to stay till I was done. Both the evening shift and morning shift receptionist were very friendly, and always smiled and greeted! Recommend Oppies fish and chips down the road from Four Canoes!

    Poor Services ”

    Two things need to be aware if you book this hotel. 1. No elevator 2. Not provide breakfast properly. On the first day, we had bread, milk, and juice only. But, on second days we had least better breakfast with eggs, ham and etc.

    We booked 1 night last minute & arrived about 10pm. The office was already closed but there's a phone to ring someone to come down. He was very nice & sweet especially for so late. The room was clean & we only stayed 1 night so I can't comment on other amenities.

    I was totally unsatisfied with my stay.”

    I emailed the property 2 weeks prior to ask for an early check in & reply back did not confirm but only suggested a possibility. Arrived at the property before 1pm to be told our room was not ready & 2pm check in time. Arrived back at 2.05 & given key to a room that the number was not visible on the door. Returned to reception & was told that the room that didn't exist wasn't ready. Given another room & when we entered (2.25 pm) a staff member was about to vaccum & we were told to give him time to finish. Said to him that it was nearly 2.30pm & we needed to prepare for the birthday that we've come down for. He left & about 10 mins later,whilst my 6 year old grand daughter was on the toilet with the door open, a staff member without knocking on the door first, walked in. He apologised & left. Only 1 channel worked on the TV & was inappropriate to watch for my grand daughter. ( bravo channel). Returned from function at 10pm to a big cockroach running along wall above our bed. Unhappy!!!!

    Wasn’t what I was expecting”

    Booked online and from looking at the pictures I thought it was fantastic value for money until we got there then I realised for what I paid I got a surprise... I booked 2 rooms, 1 room still had a used glass and towel next to the bed but the room I had something splatted on the wall behind my pillow, the windows wouldn’t close unless I got my 5 yr old son to stand outside and push with every ounce of strength to push it closed...... The rubber seal had pulled away from the frame....the tv just never worked but the best of all was that both rooms had milk in the fridge but the used by date was 3 months ago and had gone lumpy. When we bought it to the staffs attention we were greeted with..... here some more!! Not even a sorry!! The price was good but the pictures very deceiving and glad we only stayed 1 night.

    Old & Dirty dont get fooled by the website”

    We were dissapointed with everything, the staff looking after it doesnt seem to care much no one was at reception for most of the time that I was there both check in and check out. the only good thing about th rooms were the bed and the worse were the toilet/bathrooms i have been and seen in motels. mouldy, dirty and really really old. dont get fooled by their fancy website and photos. literally expectations vs reality type of scenario. I have tried backpackers and would probably prefer staying in one of those if I was trying to save a lot of money.

    Value for money, clean. Easy to find food around. There is good indian food (Chimney Indian Restaurant) nearby (about 5 mins drive). The only setback is the sulphur (i think) smell from underground water.

    WHEN WE CHECK IN THE HOTEL, WE ARE VERY UP SAD WITH THE OVERALL QUALITY OF THE HOTEL, NO HAIR SHAMPOO PROVIDED, LACK OF ONE TOWEL, IS OLD AND MOST IMPORTANT AS A HOTEL, THEY DO HAVE A PLACE FOR US TO HANG OUR CLOTHES. THE FACILITIES (POOL & SPA POOL) IS OLD AND IN BAD CONDITION. ALL OF THESE IS TOTAL NOT AS WHAT THE PICTURES HAVE SHOWN. OVERALL, THE HOTEL DO NOT LET US FEEL WELCOMING AND COSY . WONT RECOMMENDED TO OUR FRIENDS FOR THIS HOTEL AT THE RATE OF NZD179 A NIGHT WHICH WE CAN GET A NEWER MOTEL PROVIDED OWN KITCHEN AND DINING AREA. NOT A SATISFY STAY.

    Motel or Hostel ”

    Hi, Photos and rates are that of Hotel service. We were in for a huge shock as we pulled into the driveway. They claim to part of CPG Hotels and rated 4 starts no where near our room as old not refurbishment. it not a t 4 star hotel secondly curtains torn and whole in externa;l walls had cold gust of wind in our room all night. no safe noisy hallway did not feel safe at all. we had booked for 4 nights luckily they were decent staff that helped us free cancellation and refunded 2 night. we had to stay 2 nights. worst memory of our trip. as we booked over 27- 1 Jan period it was difficult to source last minute accommodation in peak season. wouldn't recommend accommodation unless looking to book HOSTEL or 1 star motel.
