I loved the excellent service, friendly check in, lovely comfy room, great beds, mountains of fluffy white towels and a personal spa, couldn't ask for more! We had a messy baby with us and it didn't phase the staff at all,

Great place to stay in Rotorua. Central location. Spacious room and nice private bathtub in the room. And the manager Phil is a great and funny host. Couldn't stop laughing... Thanks for the hospitality and I'll come back next time I am in Rotorua.

Stayed for 3 nights over the long weekend. We were checked in by Per (I believe) and he was very nice, very helpful and showed us right to the room. Showed us the spa and how it worked and even gave us milk for coffees. The motel itself is very nice - we stayed in a large studio, the bed...

The best part of Rotovegas Motel is the hot pools, which were well used and appreciated. But the rooms are very small and awkwardly laid out. They were not really as clean as they should have been, but the worst part was the noise! Either from traffic, the electrical switchboard(!) at 5.00am each morning or the neighbouring units. So sleep...

Easy to deal with. No hassle when I needed to change the days of my stay. Fantastic service, even got a courtesy call to ask what time I'd be arriving. Friendly and obliging staff. Really good prices, especially the rooms with a private spa ☺️ Excellent experience all round. Will definitely be back next time I'm in Rotorua. Thanx RotoVegas...

I stayed here for one night for around $130. The room we had was nice, had everything we needed and was clean. However, although this is not the motels fault the pool was over crowded with people hanging around it drinking and in the middle of the night a stranger banged on our door asking for money. Not ideal.

Booked a couple of nights for 135pn. Was given 'the last room available'. Then a couple stopping who just walked in were offered to see a room. They got a better room for the same price and we were stuck with the only room near the main road. NOISY even though the windows were 'double glazed'. Internet wasnt working and...

With 15 other family members, I turned up at the Rotovegas Motel. None of us expected what we had! Inside the Rotovegas House there was so much space, separate areas for quiet time and plenty of bathrooms and toilets. The kitchen had loads of cutlery and dishes so we never ran out of anything and having a dishwasher was a...

Our stay here was lovely, and had all that we needed. The location was good, and not far to walk the main town area, or literally a one minute's drive away. Our room had a full size kitchen which was great to be able to cook after being on the road for a couple of weeks. There is a FULL...

We stayed at Rotovegas for 5 nights...Location was great, room was clean and there was plenty of room for 6 of us. Kids loved the pool and play area. The owners were friendly and very helpful and best of all it was one of the cheapest option when we booked. Brilliant motel and would definitely visit again.
