Small but clean rooms. Ok beds and good wifi. The motel is situated near the city centre. The breakfast is not good (consists of weak coffee, toast, jam and cereals), but the staff is really friendly. Overall an okay place to stay, but not for more than a night or two.

Arriving in Rotorua after 9pm we weren't expecting the friendliest of receptions. But what a pleasure to be so warmly welcomed by the friendliest manageress I've ever come across! She welcomed us in, took time to explain local attractions, and pointed us towards Eat Street for a late dinner. Our studio room was small and simple but had everything we...

This wasn't bad for the price we paid. Its a fairly basic room with a mini kitchenette. Wasn't anything flash but meet our needs. The staff was very helpful, offering us discount vouchers for local attractions, just talk to them about what you plan to do. They offer a laundry service of $5 to wash and $5 to dry, all...

It was really hard to find a decent motel for last minute in Rotorua. We ended up here. This motel is little bit old fashioned and located not exactly in the downtown but they are trying to keep up with good service... Be aware of the bad smell going into your room from the local geyser.

With the management change a decline in standards is evident.Rooms not serviced as well as before-breakfast quality has gone backwards-no Sky tv in dining room-reception staff not as friendly as previous owners.

Reasonably modern model though the bathrooms are tired and cramped. Fairly basic kitchen amenities but nice and clean. Within easy walk of the town centre and restaurants. Off main roads so relatively quiet at night. No Sky which is surprising these days.

The room provided was according to what the motel promised. The room was clean and efficient. The mini refrigerator was large enough to keep drinks cold and to store any possible left over food from restaurant visits. Some basic kitchen eating utensils were provided as well as a microwave. A tea kettle was included along with tea and powdered coffee...

For the price we paid the room wasn't bad. The heating wasn't great, and the shower pressure was very weak. Apart from that it was a comfortable stay. The two bedroom apartment was spacious & suitable for what we required.

I had a fantastic 3 night stay and I will definitely recommend this establishment. Vince went out of his way to accommodate my early check and other travel requirements. The rooms are value for money and the complementary breakfast is an added bonus. It is also very centrally located and has a mall across the road with a bus stop....

Very basic motel with the bare essentials. Whether I had caught the man on the counter at a bad moment or whether he just needs customer service skills I do not know. 1970s accommodation at 2016 prices.
