Baden Lodge motel is, I believe one of the best motels situated in Rotorua. Its 4 star rating perfectly matches the experience and expectations required for a 4 star motel. In fact, compared with other 4 star motels I lived in, Baden Lodge, exceeds expectations required for a 4 star motel, and I believe should render a 4 and a...

The place is awesome. I have to say that it is the best motel I’ve ever experienced. Firstly, the studio is quite luxury with 2 floors, and every floor has a queen-size bed in which I had a good quality sleep all night, the private spa pool makes you totally relaxed especially after a whole day travelling. Speaking of service,...

Me and my husband and 2 sons spent 2 nights here while we had a wonderful weekend in Rotorua, and the unit is big enough for our whole family to live in, and they have TV both downstairs and upstairs, so we could watch different channel as we like. I also cooked a light meal in the kitchen, it's very...

had the unfortunate experiance of staying at this property in March 2013. The photo looked great in the accomodation guide. The unit was very dark and after we put the lights on you could see the filthy state it was in. Thought we would sleep on the bed upstairs but the sheets were full of holes and the blood stain...

Stayed 3 nights in Feb 13. Were given towels that were torn & had holes in them. The floor had stain marks, the kitchenette bench was very dirty as were the power outlets. I gave them both a wipe & they came clean, showing they just needed to be given a good clean. It was the same in the bathroom....

This budget motel is really well presented and the staff are very friendly, efficient and helpful. The beds were not luxurious but OK for the price of the accomodation. The walk into town where all the restaurants were was a little further than I thought it would be so after hiking out on the first night we opted to drive...

After a drawn out period trying to get the Manager to understand this,we were moved to unit 9. This unit was in a better condition, but the jet pump...

Thanks for your comments. We are sorry for your dissatisfaction of your stay at our motel. We will take your comments as a good reference and keep improving our motel. Since our manager was on day off at that period, a temporary staff was on site and maybe got misunderstanding in the conversation. We have provided training to all staff...

I will never trust a Qualmark rating again. This accommodation is rated 4 star. Arrived mid afternoon and had to wait 10 minutes for service - no response to reception bell and no reply to two phone calls. No apologies for delay in response. Room was grubby. Went and bought cleaning gear and did the "housework" before using the place....

We very much appreciate for your feedback and please accept our apology for not meeting your expectation for staying with us. We hope you can understand that the acidic gas level is pretty high around Rotorua area which accelerates the erosion of the facilities (especially to metals), we apologise that we didn’t keep in pace with the depreciation and deal...

Speaking of service, the receptionist Cindy is professional and filled with passion. The most important thing is that the price is value for money.
