I stayed here with my parents for one night and had a relaxing and enjoyable time! The owner was super friendly and was willing to give tips and vouchers to the places we were planning to visit in Rotorua. I highly recommend to stay here for a great value while being stay close to all the local areas!

This motel is well located for both the town and park. The room we had was well equipped and clean. It has its own mineral pool which is free a bonus. If needed the owner will arrange pick up from the bus drop off.

Stayed just for one night. A nice big room, or rooms. Had all you needed and free wifi, but was just dated and old. Well stocked kitchen. Fairly central, about a 10 minute walk to the main areas. Easy parking. Nice, friendly owner.

Arrived here after booking with local info centre. Yes it was a budget booking and we didn't expect a lot for £42.50 however we were pleasantly surprised. The owner ( Yung) was very accommodating and offered us a 2 bedroomed unit. Yes, it is dated and perhaps in need of a makeover. It is central for access to town centre,...

This motel is really well situated right in the city centre. We were originally booked in to a studio apartment but when we arrived we found the mattress was not up to scratch as you could feel the springs though it. The manager moved us into another apartment with no hassle. The rooms are well equipped with everything you might...

The owner of this motel is so welcoming and goes out of his way to provide you with information and makes sure you are comfortable. It is a budget motel so it is a little bit run down but our room was clean and we had everything we needed. It is in an ideal location for walking in to town...

I booked this hotel based on the good reviews. We had a 2 bedroom apartment. I do not expect luxury on budget prices but a backpackers would have been better. The rooms look nothing like the picture above. Nothing worked properly. The TV needs to be unplugged then replugged as it freezes. The taps need to be "jiggled" and pushed...

My partner and I had the pleasure of staying at Manhattan Motel for fifteen weeks. The location is great close to all restaurants, movie theatre, Thursday night market plus Saturday market and plenty of retail therapy if required not to forget local tourist attractions. The service is outstanding and we were always looked after by the manager and his wife....

Enjoyed our stay at the Manhattan. Affordable and well serviced 2 bedroom unit. Sure the room needed a bit of an upgrade but we weren't 'living' in the room - everyday we were out and about. The Motel is an easy walk away from town. Proprietor very helpful and accommodating. Will stay again.

While the location of this hotel is not bad (just a few easy walking blocks from city center) this hotel is in desperate need of some TLC. The staff is extremely friendly (owner is from South Korea and has been here for 7+ years) but the rooms all have the same musty smell of not haven been aired out in...
