What a great stay at this highly rated Motel in Rotorua, New Zealand. The guest whisperer, Morgen Waghorne, was at his best, making the stay something to remember. If you plan to visit this area of the island I would personally recommend that you consider staying at this motel.

Lovely room, comfortable bed, everything very clean. The gal who checked us in could not have been more welcoming. Very helpful to have the kitchenette and grill available. Within walking distance to the botanical gardens (worth the walk!).

Great experience here, the manager is fantastic! He was very welcoming and made us feel as if he was hosting his friends. The room was very clean and well kept - no easy feat for a hotel with a large steam generating hot tub inside the rooms (which is awesome)! The location is good but beware the whole town has...

Me and my partner checked in on the 22nd of April (last night) and wish we had made our trip longer just to have more time in the motel as it was amazing! The room was spotless, the bed was super comfortable and the spa was delightful. Being so close to the main road we expected noise but we didn't...

The staff were warm, welcoming and friendly, the rooms were clean and well maintained, the bed was very comfortable, a lot of sky channels to choose from and a spa bath which was a great way to relax after a long bike in the forest. The facilities also includes free Wi-Fi and bike washing area. The motel is located fairly...

My friends and I stopped over in Rotorua for a few days, and couldn't have been happier with this establishment. Our flight got delayed coming in due to a cyclone that we would have to check in almost 2 hours later in the evening. I called the motel as soon as we landed in Tarunga to let him know that...

We are frequent travellers to Rotorua and this was the first time we have stayed at the Arista Capri. The bed is the most comfortable motel bed we have slept on in years. As a bonus there was a kitchenette with a hob and microwave so you could cook if you wanted. There was also a spa bath and a...

We had our mountain bike team stay here for the NZ Secondary Schools Crankworx competition week. Rooms were really nice and clean, Morgen very hospitable, great BBQ facility for a group and it is quiet at night. Kids loved the spa pools. Secure lockup for our precious bikes and the boat too.

Hi Marcus, It was an absolute pleasure mate. Thank you for the business, you were all a great bunch of folks. Honestly I was a bit disappointed though that you didn't leave that magnificent boat of yours behind as a parting gift. :-) Maybe next time. Thanks again. Kind regards, Morgen.
