I asked about a million questions and they did their utmost to answer every one, including ringing the lakeside cafe they'd recommended to check it was open (it wasn't). Lovely to have not just a bath but a SPA bath!

The motel is very convenient in town. The room was very clean, we enjoyed the spa tub. The owners told us about the redwood forest and we enjoyed a nice walk. We were able to walk around town from the motel.

This is a wonderful motel. The room is fairly spacious and the bathroom is very large. The amenities in the bathroom are wonderful, including the pumice stone! Wonderful shower. There is a large spa tub which we didn't use but looks nice....very big! The whole unit is updated beautifully. My only complaint is the bed. It is a queen....we prefer king or twins....and it is too hard. It needs another pillow top. My hips were a little sore. Otherwise, a great spot.

Thank you very much for the positive feedback. It is difficult to get the beds right for everybody as its a personal thing.
We do have king beds in some of the rooms and we hope to welcome you back in the future.

In many ways Silver Fern is one of a number of motels and hotels along motel mile in Rotorua. It is well located on Fenton Street by the racecourse about one mile to walk (15 mins into the centre and restaurant area) but especially well located for Te Puia.
However, what sets Silver Fern apart is the loving care it is serviced and managed by Paul and Carole, the English management team on site, for whom nothing was too much trouble. Information, bookings - they were there to assist at any time.
A motel is a motel but this was well kept, thoroughly clean and well equipped. It offered good value for a two day stop to visit the sites of Rotorua. The washing facilities were particularly useful whilst touring. Ample parking.

You should stay here. It’s a short drive from downtown Rotorua, it’s a short drive to the mountain biking in the Redwood forests, but most of all it’s a really great facility run by people who really care.

You might have a monstrously large spa hot tub in your suite! I did. There is a laundry for washing your mountain biking gear, they give you Fresh milk when you check in!

This is the best place to stay in Rotorua
