Stayed here for the one night. Had all the usual amenities you would expect from a motel in NZ. Did the job. Staff on check in and check out were very friendly and helpful. Pricing seemed to be in line with most other similar type of motels. Only issue was space a touch small within room, but may just have...

Being a bit of an Elvis fan the 70s wallpaper, colour-schemes and the hotel's name drew me to this place and I wasn't disappointed. The spa was a bonus and the staff were helpful and informative, providing us with good advice about where to eat and hang out. The discount vouchers they provided us with helped as well. Would definitely...

The place is amazing. Wide spread has many facilities including hot pool, barbeque, sauna and many more. The rooms are nice clean and cozy has a little kitchen. The best part is the personalised spa pool. The hospitality was good and the people sweet. We indeed had a great time and enjoyed every moment here.

Stayed here for two nights. Very handy location on Fenton street. Close to grocery store. Beds were comfy, room was clean. Spa was working well. Good to relax after a day of exploring. Receptionist was very friendly and helpful too. Only negative was that there were not enough utensils to use even if there were only two people staying. Overall...

This is our second time staying at RotoVegas.. we loved it so much the first time it's likely to be the only place we stay when we visit Rotorua. We had to change our stay due to a passing in our family and the guys did everything they could to help us out even though it was a long weekend....

The lady at the front desk was very friendly and helpful which was certainly a positive to the stay. The rooms themselves though were a bit of a letdown, especially when comparing them to other places we stayed in NZ. The room we stayed in was quite cramped and they were very hot - no fan, no aircon and couldn't...

Hi polkadot123 Thanks for your review sorry you didn't like our retro phone or smelly air not much we can do about the smell (which is everywhere in Rotorua) but rest assured the funky retro phone has been replaced with a boring key pad phone.
