My wife and I love this place. The room is clean and spacious. Close to city centre, Rainbow Spring and Lake Rotorua. Walking distance to Kuirau Geo Thermal Park. We love the Thermal pool inside the motel. It is must for us at the end of each day.

We stayed in the Cottage and it was perfect for a family. A little self-contained house. It was clean and welcoming. The owners were friendly and helpful. The kids enjoyed the heated pool. Easy to find and close to town. Highly Recommended!!

Our 2 teenage grandsons have loved the heated swimming pool despite heavy rain and a cool temperature. The receptionist was welcoming, efficient and responsive to my questions. We had all our washing cleared and mostly dried for us at the great value of $NZ10. Whilst everything else here is fairly expensive this felt like a bargain! The thermal spa is...

A neat small motel with a thermal pool and a thermal spa pool. Friendly staff. In need of updates here and there but not where it matters. Rooms clean and functional. Nice to see that they recycle.One of the gates to the Pool did not lock properly when we first came which was a real worry since we have pre-schoolers....

The motel was easy to find, on the edge of central Rotorua. The room was large, airy and very clean; the bed was very comfortable. We were impressed as the host turned on the heating just as we arrived; there were copious towels, and we were pleased to see that the toileteries were non-animal-tested. We tried the Hot Tub fed...

Had a nice night at the Motel in Unit 2, it was clean and comfortable. The only thing wrong with Unit 2 is that there isn't a power point beside the bed to plug my laptop into. The power point by the TV isn't much use unless you've got an extension cord. Had a lovely swim in the Pool though!!!

We stayed at this hotel on a Saturday night in February and it was lovely. The room was large, comfortable, clean and very well furnished. We had room #7 at the back of the small complex and was on its own next to the laundry & mineral spa pool. We didn't hear a sound from either and slept very well...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Red Rock Thermal Motel is a small motel with thermal heating, a private thermal mineral spa pool for rejuvenating after a busy day sightseeing and a outdoor heated swimming pool. We have gardens to relax in with a trampoline for the kids. All units have tea & coffee facilities, kitchenettes and bathrooms. The Motel is ideally situated to tour the many geothermal parks in the area. Many of the Maori Culture shows offer a free pick up service from here for a great night out, or if you prefer you can simply walk out of our back gate, catch yourself a trout from the stream & cook it on the BBQ. ... more   less
