The Silver Fern Motel was excellent, it ticks all the boxes. Modern large room, perfectly clean and a very comfortable bed. Beautiful drapes, and soft furnishings. Nice outdoor space to sit and watch the world go by. Large spa tub in own setting adjoined to our room. Friendly hosts. Have stayed here before and would definitely stay again. Couldn't ask...

We left our booking a bit late for the Easter long weekend but what a find. Such a great stay with the owners giving above and beyond service including ideas for what to do over our 3 night stay. Great place to stay with a lot of room and a great usable kitchen.

We have stayed with the wonderful team at the Silver Fern Rotorua four times now, and have never been disappointed. Close enough to the town centre, but far enough away to not be worried about traffic. The rooms are nice and quite and have everything required for a comfortable stay. The spa facilities available are perfect to start any getaway...

My room (Room 3) at Silver Fern was spacious and spotless with a large spa tub outside in a separate area. Paul and Carol were so lovely to talk to, and bent over backwards to ensure my stay with them was a pleasant one. Wi-fi connection is simple too! I will certainly be making this my regular place to stay...

We stayed here for 2 nights. Our room was at the front and we did get road noise. The room was spacious, clean & the staff ensured there were plenty of heaters to keep it warm. The location is OK, basically in an area with many other motels. The owner was initially quite off hand which I found quite off...

This is a lovely motel. The rooms are spacious and include a private, covered outdoor area with hot tub! There's plenty of room for parking, the atmosphere is pleasant, and the facilities include free use of a washing machine and a cheap dryer (laundry racks also available). The town centre and nearby attractions are a short drive away. Best of...

We stayed at this motel in early May for 2 nights. I was not expecting to hear the upstairs occupants urinating in the toilet each time it was used, or the spa bath water system running very loudly (enough to wake me) when the users ran a bath late at night. However these were small inconveniences that were easily forgotten...

This is great place to stay in Rotorua within easy drives of the various attractions in the area. The owners really take care of the property. They step up even further to take care of their guests. Just a heads up. Rotorua has the geothermal activity and the sulfur small permeates most of the city.

2 night stay in Rotorua and this motel was everything we expected based on its past ratings. Convenient location (if you have a car) very comfortable room. The hosts are super friendly and helpful and the in-room breakfast (cooked on site) was fantastic
