Went to Rotorua for the day and looked up affordable accommodation for the evening. Came across Pure Motel being the most affordable I could find. The woman was not there but told us we could book online as she was 10mins away. She even let us use the free wifi to book. Our phones were playing up but she was back and was so friendly in booking us in.

We stayed in the twin guest house which had 3 single beds (one in a separate room), an ensuite and a kitchenette for tea and coffee. The room on that day only cost $89 so wasn't expecting much but for that price, was 5 star quality.

Stayed: December 2017, travelled with family

Stayed here overnight and had a great stay. Easy to find on the main stretch, free parking. Staff were lovely and friendly and helped us book a hangi dinner tour which was amazing! Simple, budget style room but perfect for an overnight stay if passing by. Close to attractions.

Simply say, it was clean and comfy place for our one night stay. One family room with one main double bed inside and twin beds at the living room, all beds were comfy. Bathroom and toilet was clean, small kitchen was good and parking was easy next to the room. Location at the far end of Fenton Street (from city centre position) but should not be a problem for guests coming with cars. No complaint, or probably, if any, was the TV channels were only 3, two channels for sports (rugby mostly), and one for film, that's all. However, all come with affordable rate, that's good.

Hi santo t,

Thank you for your review and we are glad that you enjoyed your stay. We take pride in our location and simple rooms. Yes, we have 3 Sky channels on analogue TV. For more channels, you may go on our digital TV, where you find many more everyday free view channels. Please let us know next time you come by and we can show you how to interchange the 2 programmes.

Regards,
Charlie

Great value for money. We stayed in the guest house. It was warm and very private which was nice.

We were told that we had to wash our own dishes or we'd be charged extra, which was weird because there was nothing supplied for dish washing.
.
The staff were nice and friendly. The location was good.

Room Tip: If you chose the guest house, make sure to bring your own cutlery, plates, and dishwashing stuff!

Dear Georgia S,

Thank you for taking time to review your recent stay with us. We are happy to learn that you enjoyed our location and services. Dish washing liquid and brushes are supplied in the motel studio units for guests to be responsible for their own dishes, however not necessary in the guest house as rooms don't feature kitchenettes. Therefore no worries if you stayed in the guest house and we apologise for the confusion. We look forward to welcome you back when you are next in Rotorua!

Best regards,
Charlie
