Location good out of the CBD but requires a make over and good coat of paint. Family room was cramped, 1 room had no window so extremely hot. Had to request a standing fan.

Overnight stay in Rotorua

Pros: Great location, friendly and helpful staff.
Cons: Replaced the foam squabs with proper inner-sprung mattresses.
Location: Handy location right in the middle of the city, there was plenty to do. The motel provided a large range of brochures for local activities.
The room was great, it had everything we needed. The staff were friendly and helpful. The location was great, central to the city. The beds were uncomfortable. The mattresses are foam, not inner-sprung mattresses. We were uncomfortable and didn't sleep well.

Loved it!

I loved staying there. The location is unbeatable. The lady at the reception was very nice and everything was very clean! I didn't know that you would get a free towel and that they cleaned your room everyday, which made my stay even better. The only thing which I wasn't 100% happy with was the size of my single room and the shower room. It's just about big enough but you can hardly move around in there.

Nice place

We booked this not knowing where it is and we were really pleased it was situated in the middle of the city. Once we checked in and the staff offered us discounts for activities around Rotorua we set off to walk around the city. It was walking distance to eateries and to Rotorua lake. It was a comfortable night a little bit noisy. Overall a great place and would highly recommend.
