We cannot recommend this gem enough! Nick and the staff went above and beyond to get us situated, make us comfortable and assist us with all our inquiries. This place is far enough away from the city center to be quiet, but not so far that you cannot walk or ride one of the loaner bikes (we took advantage of this option). Clean, convenient and comfortable! Loved our stay!
Thank you Joda for your lovely comments. We loved having you stay with us at Silver Fern Accommodation & Spa. We wish you all the very best for the rest of your travels in New Zealand. Kind regards Nick & Rebecca
Jay from Oregon”
The room was nice, clean and comfortable. What was exceptional was the management staff offering to drive us to the city center "Food Street" so we didn't have to "left-side" drive in the dark. They also made sure we knew how to find a cab back. Very nice, very friendly.
Thank you Jay for taking the time to write a review, we are pleased you enjoyed your time with us. kind regards Nick & Rebecca
Fantastic stay in Rotorua ”
Kudos to the owners who maintain the place very well. Room was clean, bed was comfortable. They even have breakfast service (additional charges) send to the room. Easy to find and have ample parking space. Great for short and extended stay.
A good choice.”
Stayed 2 nights in the hotel (one planned, one not) and really enjoyed our stay. The rooms are large and the hotel location good, with a large supermarket being in walking distance and only a 5 minute drive from Rotorua city centre. The large spa baths are fun as well.
Absolute pleasure. Location was easy to find on main road. Spent the night in a clean ad=nd comfortable suite, equipped with a private spa. We were planning to go to Polynesian spa but in the end abandoned the plan as we just made full use of the private spa in our suite. Well equipped with TV and sound system. The room also has air-conditioning. HAd the best night sleep after a busy day traveling.
Best Accommodation ”
We have stayed at a lot of hotels / accommodations in Rotorua and by far the Silver Ferns is the most superior. Lovely decor, super comfy beds, clean, and welcoming. This will be our place to book when we are in town
Lovely managers and relaxing stay”
We spent a night here and had a very relaxing and comfortable stay. Manager was lovely and gave us loads of good tips about what to do in and around Rotorua. It was a bit pricier than other options but worth it in my view. Highly recommend staying here if you are looking for a relaxing break in Rotorua!
Awesome room! Great bathroom and comfortable bed. Very spacious room! Very nice host at reception with excellent recommendations and guidance
Thank you for taking the time to write your review, we are pleased you enjoyed your stay at Silver Fern. kind regards Rebecca
Great Location, bedroom & staff”
Allen & his wife could not have been more helpful in guiding us around Rotorua. They offered to drive us into town, short 1km walk. Our room was clean, the spa tub big & warm. All facitilites, kitchenette, bathroom were perfect.
A lovely stay ”
Paul and Carole (sorry if either name is wrong) were absolutely lovely and so helpful with any query we had. The room was a good size. We had issues with our wifi which weren’t rectified until night 3 of 4 which was frustrating but I do appreciate that it could be fixed. Great to have laundry and spa onsite. We’re not hot spa people so would have loved a pool, but can’t have everything!
Comfortable room with all the amenities ”
The motel was in a convenient location with on site parking at no extra cost. The room was comfortable with a great on suite bath with its own hottub. They offered excellent breakfast to order as room service at a reasonable cost. The staff we welcoming and very helpful.
Excellent jacuzzi. The room is spacious. The kitchenette is very basic. No stove and limited cutleries. It is located within walking distance to local restaurant. Less than 5 minutes drive to the supermarket and lake.
A Great Room and Friendly Owners”
The room was excellent (the only downside was the lack of AC, which seems to be common in the area), but the owners are what set this hotel above the average. They were friendly and eager to answer questions. They helped us find good restaurants. When our rental car experienced mechanical issues, they took the time to call around to local mechanic shops until they found one that was open and could work with our rental company to complete the repairs that same day. They are an excellent resource, and happy to share every tip they have.
The gentleman at reception was very approachable and made us feel welcome within moments. I spent 3 days away in 3 different accommodations, this one easily the best in my opinion. regretfully, I pussied the same amount for a room in Auckland that didn't shape up as I expected it to. Great value for money and a treat to have had so many complimentary items in the room
Excellent service in an exceptional room”
From the moment we arrived, we were greeted with friendliness and great service. Having arrived early, the room was readily available. We were immediately given directions to local restaurants and facilities. The room was immaculately clean and comfortable, with a huge spa bath in the bathroom. The towels were absolutely luxurious. The location was central to the towns attractions and shopping centre. We couldn't speak more highly of this place. An absolute pleasure.
We have stayed at many motels over the years in Rotorua and this has been the best. The in room spa bath was amazing. Our teenage son enjoyed having the TV to himself in the main room on a very comfortable sofa bed. We enjoyed having a TV in our bedroom. The hosts were very pleasant and welcoming.
5 Star accomodation”
It was beautiful 5 stars motel, we enjoyed so much here. Wish we could stay a little longer. 5 stars for the cleanliness, friendly staff, and free wifi. Hotels and motels that we stayed with in NZ, most of them aren't free for wifi.
Overall a nice place to stay”
3 night stay during the week. Upper level unit. The motel is reasonably well located for getting around Rotorua. Located on one of the main streets. The studio unit was well laid out and generally had most of what was needed. For a 5 star hotel it lacked a number of quality features eg temperature controlled heating (the heaters were either on or off), bed... too soft .. worn out, only local TV channels, etc.
Nepalese massage top rate!”
This was a very nice location to stay in. We enjoyed a wonderful Maori cultural experience nearby to our location.Because of the spa being in each room, the sound of the above room spa function was rather overwhelming when we were trying to sleep. Also, the bed was not comfortable. Apart from those two things, everything else was great and our hosts were very helpful and accommodating to our needs, The Nepalese massage couple, Tikka and Priya, really listened to our needs and did a great job.
Great no fuss motel with friendly staff”
The motel provides a great no fuss environment and has very friendly staffs who made us felt welcome the moment we checked in. The city centre is within 5 mins drive away, so shopping and dining is not a problem. Our two bedroom unit also has a jacuzzi tub for us to dip in. Nice thought. For those who enjoy spa, Silver Fern also has spa facilities, but we have not tried that, so could not comment on that. Overall, a great motel if you have your own transport.
