This is a great motel in Rotorua, easy walking distance from the main shops. The room was clean and spacious and has a huge spa bath. Also the owner at the desk is a really nice fellow, who helped me sort out what to do in town (definitely go to the Polynesian Spa).

Perfectly situated if you are going to visit the geothermal area. Large comfortable room with parking adjacent to the room. Well appointed and very clean. Very friendly and helpful service. Would definitely stay here on a return trip to Rotorua.

My father and I stayed here for one night while in Rotorua on business. He slept in the separate bedroom which he said was very comfortable and I slept in the large lounge on one of the three (!) single beds which was also very comfortable. The unit was well equipped, quiet, and conveniently located. Special mention has to be...

Although slightly tired, the rooms are very well presented, clean and the service was fantastic. Stayed only one night and slept like a log on the comfortable bed. I left my charger behind - Morgen was more than willing to return my charger free of charge, which was a great example of going the extra mile. I would stay here...

Very large room with comfortable bed and good facilities. Space to sit outside the room with a couple of chairs and enjoy the sun. Staff very helpful. Close enough to walk into the centre for restaurants and shops visited the redwoods which was only a short drive away. Would definitely stay here again

Stayed here for two nights whilst visiting the sights in Rotorua. The motel is in a excellent location, easy to find and well situated for going to see the various sights. Good quality linen and bathroom. Morton was excellent and made our stay perfect with his efficient service with a minor crisis.

When you drive in and check in with Morgan, you feel right at home. Morgan walked us down to our room and showed us how everything worked. They have a deck area at the back of the room with a large two person hot tub/spa. It has a hot and cold water spigot and you fill it just like a...

We enjoyed our stay at Arista Capri in Rotorua. It is a locally owned motel that shines through for affordability, comfort, and presentation. Make sure to book directly as Mike and Annemarie are social giving owners who use proceeds to help Child Cancer families in the greater Rotorua area. Morgen is a friendly and helpful manager, who not only gave...

We only stayed two nights at the Arista, but enjoyed our visit. Morgen, "the guest whisperer" lived up to his reputation as friendly, helpful, and efficient. Thanks. The room was large and well equipped, including a spa. The bed was reasonably comfortable. The overall room condition is getting a bit dated, but everything was clean and functioned well. The motel...

Before arriving I received a welcome email from the manager, "Morgs...the guest whisperer". I thought the welcome email very nice, but the title a bit odd. Then, I met Morgen, and discovered why he had the nickname. Simply put, he was fantastic - friendly, helpful, and funny. We were there over Christmas, and he even gave us a present -...
