We stayed for 2 nights here. Morgen had been most helpful with our trip bookings and guiding us around. Room was clean and comfortable! Location was a bit further from town centre, but within walking distance to Te Puia.

Nice hotel with comfortable beds on the upper floor of the unit and it's own hot tub in the back. The front desk staff were excellent and super helpful and friendly. They asked me what my plans were and helped me book tours at Waimangu and Hobbiton. That was really a stroke of luck because I did not know that...

We stayed here for 2 nights while visiting Rotorua. The staff was exceptionally friendly and wonderful. The hotel was clean and had the amenities that we needed. The private hot tub/ spa was a great extra. Would definitely stay here again!

As it is on 2 levels the layout of the Arista is a little bit different to nearly all the Hotels/motels etc we have stayed in. Upstairs is two good sized beds, whilst the cooking/eating area, bathroom and lounge area are downstairs. There is also a jacuzzi in the downstairs area. This arrangement gives the place a roomy feel. Only...

My husband and I stayed here on our recent trip to Rotorua. The room was clean and the staff very friendly and helpful. The bathroom was adequate but could do with a tile and fixture upgrade. This aside I would come back.

We stayed in a mezzanine apartment which housed our family of 4 very comfortably! The rooms were clean, spacious and you had your own hot tub out the back which was a lovely surprise! Has an onsite laundry (coin operated) which is handy when travelling with children. Free parking at the door and the staff were helpful and friendly.

After a big day of hiking, the hot tub was just what we needed! It was outdoors in our rooms own private space. Very well furnished, and for you Melbournites, a coffee plunger for a finishing touch! Parking was easy.
