Amazing product, service and personnel. We booked a family room for 7 and it was beyond expectation. Our family quite often spend time in motels/hotels travelling with kids sports tournaments, and our 2night stay at the Arista has been the best so far 😉. Thank you Mike and your team for an enjoyable stay.. Will definitely be booking with you...

We had a studio loft apartment. Clean, spacious , well appointed. Friendly and helpful staff. Free wifi and access to cable tv. Only downside was toilet downstairs and bed and video/tv upstairs although there was a tv downstairs as well. Had a great spa. Would be hot in summer though as no air con and few windows. However we were...

This is motel delight! Great set up, good quality apartments, individual parking, free wifi. The family that run this place are real people, they know what makes a visit enjoyable and most of all really care. If you're thinking of staying in this area, look no further!

We stayed in room 6 which was a loft room it was very modern, clean and spacious. However upstairs was very hot due to no air conditioning but plenty of good fans were supplied. Staff friendly and our 3year old loved the playground. Good value for money

Arista was perfect for our family of 5...although we could have comfortably fit more in our room. The downstairs included a queen size bed, full kitchenette and lounge. Upstairs was an additional queen and seperated by a half wall 3 single beds. The hotel has a great selection of recent release dvd's so we were able to find something for...

We had a fantastic stay at Arista of Rotorua. Mike and Annemarie looked after us so well, organising everything from umbrellas to babysitting. We loved our room, the central location to town and the thermal park, and our 4yo loved the pirate ship playground... Great location for the whole family! The fact that these guys give back to the community...

Really enjoyed staying here, it's close enough to all the attractions without suffering from all the hustle and bustle. Located alongside a lot of other motels the layout is pretty good, all the amenities on the ground floor, kitchen, living area, bathroom and spa bath, with a mezzanine floor just for the beds. Staff were helpful and friendly and willing...

We booked the Arista based on reviews from Trip Advisor. The reviews were 100% correct. The room were HUGE and everything we needed was provided. Michael, our host, was a not only a wealth of information on local attractions but was extremely approchable and friendly, clearly able to give advice relative to our age and interests He recommended 3 venues...
