We stayed at Birchwood Spa Motel for one night a few days after Xmas. This property is located a bit far from town but just a few steps away from Whakarewarewa / Te Puia, so it's not ideal if you don't have a car. The rooms are tidy and spacious. The courtyard has a huge (yet slippery) spa bath to...

We booked for 2 nights over late December but illness meant we missed the firsy night. No problems they actually were able to sell the room and credit us. We stayed an extra night. The managers were lovely people to deal with. Neat clean and tidy motel, quiet. Handy to all attractions. Managers gave local advice. We'll definately stay again.

We only stayed here one night, wish it could've been longer! The setting was very pretty with beautiful flower-filled hanging baskets outside of the doors. Rooms were clean and comfortable!! The only negative for us was that we did not find any bakeries or shops within walking distance.

The motel is very basic but homey. We stayed in a 2-bedroom ground floor cottage with a garage for the car. Basic cooking facilities with a common laundry area at the office. There's also a separate jacuzzi that can be booked for private use, my kids enjoyed it very much. The host was very hospitable and responsive to our needs,...

We are a family of 5 adults and 1 infant. We stayed in a 2 bedroom townhouse at the end of August. The townhouses are located just behind the motel and are relatively new with a kitchen, internal carpark, small courtyard and 1 bathroom. We really enjoyed the townhouse, it was just big enough for all of us with the...

I thank Kevin for helping us amidst spotty communication while traveling and making sure he had a room for us on arrival. He was very helpful finding us a room for the second night as well as he was all booked. We stayed in a two bedroom unit with shared bath. The unit was very nice and had everything you...

With a family of 6 it can often be hard to find quality accommodation that will fit our size. This motel had not only the space, but also a modern self-contained kitchen and private courtyard spa. The hosts were wonderful, the rooms immaculately clean and the gardens beautifully cared for. However, like many of the places we stayed, the toilet...

This motel is about 2km out of central Rotorua but handy for some of the attractions. The owners are very helpful, it is immaculately clean, tidy and well fitted out. Excellent wifi, (not something that seems common in NZ).
