Reviewed yesterday NEW

I stay in Rotorua twice per year and will never stay anywhere other than Arista now. The rooms are massive, with bedroom on the upstairs mezzanine, providing space on groundfloor for table & chairs, lounge area with couch and armchairs. Full kitchen, with good coffee provided. Heating is sensational, with the thermal radiators in bathroom and downstairs hallway. However there...

Great size for a family of five, rooms were clean. Bathroom was ok, a bit small for five of us to share but not really an issue. Good service. There is a little bit of a lack of privacy as the 3 beds are on a mezzanine floor and the main bed was downstairs meaning we could hear the kids...

Rooms were clean and tidy. Heaters were on when I arrived which was lovely as it was a cold evening. But the stand out for me was the oh so amazing hot tub out the back of the room. Will be coming back

A great little motel in a very handy location. Friendly and helpful staff and very well appointed units. A daily allowance of free wifi kept the kids happy, as did the hot tub each unit had. There was plenty of information at reception about things to do, and free dvds to borrow and watch in your unit.
