We booked through Agoda good value. Stayed three nights. We complained about the double bed so they went an brought an new one. Can not ask for better value. Good value with breakfast included. Good pools both natural and outside. This motel is not new but kept clean and tidy.

I recently stayed for 5 nights with my daughter and granddaughter. The studio was very comfortable with a double and single bed. The fan was a great asset as we used it throughout the night due the hot weather we were experiencing. The swimming pool in front of the motel was also fabulous after a long hot day at kapa... More

We stayed here for 3 nights. The location was easy to find and close(ish) to shops. Bonus wifi was good value - didn't know about this until we turned up.

We were looking for a place that was centrally located and low-priced. A complimentary buffet and complimentary WiFi were added bonuses; the continental buffet, while basic, was more than adequate. The WiFi was sufficient for checking e-mails, which is what we needed. The location was terrific as well, within walking distance of the city centre and Central Mall. The other... More

I booked this motel based on overall reviews from trip advisor. I stayed for 3 nights and wasnt disappointed. The place is clean, quiet and about 2 minutes walk to the shops. The hosts are both accomodating and easy to talk to. I will book this motel again whenever I visit Rotorua.

This was our "cheapie" for the trip being half the price of some of our other stays! It was really good value and scrupulously clean - and we got to practice our French!!!

Context: We wanted an inexpensive weekend in Rotorua (mountain biking), with plans for two nights in a motel that cost less than $90/night but that would cater to couples/families rather than backpackers. We used Wotif to identify potential candidates in our desired price range. And then we searched the reviews in trip advisor to find the one that had the... More

After reading the previous comments on Tripadvisor I am left wondering whether it is the same motel! There was no greeting on our arrival and no farewell or thank you for staying when we left! This is very rude to paying customers. The motel is advertised as French decorated and furnished, but this is far from true with nothing remotely... More

The title says it all. The service by the young man on reception was faultless, The room was spotlessly clean, and the facilities excellent - we will be staying there again. The breakfast (included in the price) was just what I had come to expect from this motel. I can't recommend it highly enouhg.

We make regular trips to Rotorua, and discovered this lovely place this weekend. Though a little shabby, it is purely cosmetic, as the room was spotlessly clean, warm and comfortable. We will be coming here regularly from now on, as its proximity to the CBD, the thermal pools, great service and the continental breakfast make it a great value package.... More
