On arrival we were asked for photo ID which was a surprise as we had already paid in advance and in full when booking through the AA. Initial inspection of the one bedroom unit was satisfactory so we extended our stay to 3 nights. The unit was clean and tidy. We wondered about the tea, coffee, sugar and milk not... More

Great value for money, my friends, family and especially the dog loves it. Jumping into our own private thermal spa- it's simple, clean and very friendly- they have often gone out of their way to accommodate us. Thank you Gibson Court!

My husband and I and our 2 dogs stayed at this motel for the first time over the past weekend. It is a bit tired, but comfortable and was great to have our dogs be able to stay with us. You have to take your dogs' own bedding and they shouldn't jump on the furniture, but I think that for... More

A motel where you get what you are paying for. A little dated, but otherwise comfortable and had its own mineral tub, with genuine thermal water, that you could fill yourself if you wanted. The owner was lovely and on return each day mineral pool was full already :) A place where you can take your dog with no hassle,... More

There is nothing fancy about the Gibson Court Motel, you get what you are paying for. Its fair value for the price. My wife loved the private mineral pools at the back of each unit which are filled with fresh and very hot geothermal mineral water. It is water straight out of the ground and is just loaded with mineral... More

We loved the Gibson Court Motel. It may a little dated but it was clean, had comfy beds and every afternoon/evening we came back May (the owner) had filled our mineral spa for us. Best way to end our very busy days. Wouldn't stay anywhere else in Rotorua now.

Because it's off the Fenton Street motel strip we discovered this haven quite by chance. After a very friendly greeting we were invited to inspect a unit and are delighted to be staying here. It is spotlessly clean, spacious, with its private courtyard and spa for total quiet relaxation. All at an affordable rate. I would like to come back... More

It is high season, and a place to find not always easy. I found this place by coincidence. It has everything you need but basic. If you look for a reasonable place, go for it. Don't be too meticulous about cleanliness. It is about one and a half kilometre from the city centre it is away from the main road... More
