Loved the owners sense of humour. They were very helpful with recommendations of what to do. Booked a few trips for us at a discount. The room was a very good size, the usual extras supplied (towels, soaps, outdoor towels, etc) Location- great, right by the main shopping/restaurants/bars. 2 minute walk.

A comfortable, pleasant place with exceedingly soft beds, kindly owners and lots of space in the rooms. It's in the middle of town - very convenient for exploring, getting groceries and so on - yet managed to be completely quiet at night. Highly recommended.

Very friendly and helpful owner/operator. Very informative and able to book attractions with a nice discount :) Excellent location and exceptionally clean units. Off road parking right outside unit and great location for accessing the city centre. Will stay here again if ever in Rotorua

I stayed here for 4 weeks whilst on placement from Uni. Affordable, very warm and close to town. Just what we were looking for. Lisa and Tony are very accommodating and know a lot about the attractions around Rotorua.

We booked into this motel because it indicated hot pools on the web site. Apparently the heat for the outdoor pool gets switched off for winter and the pump for the indoor pool wasn't working.

Hi Max We are sorry you were disappointed with the lack of a pool. Unfortunately the spa pool pump broke and we had to wait for parts and fitting, this has now been done. Our swimming pool is seasonal, as stated on our website and is also reflected in our low-season rate. This information is also given to all websites... More

We stayed at Six on Union for one night. We were pleasantly surprised by the large room with well equipped kitchen. Our room was very cheap at only $100 and the location is handy to town. We also found a friendly cat who lives at the motel & enjoys being patted by guests.
