Room layout is excellent and unique. Very good Spa facility and perfect for a couple or a family. Arrived around 9:30pm had no problem of check in. Plenty of natural light in the Spa area but won't be affected if weather was bad.

We stayed two nights at Arista of Rotorua and the accommodation was simply great. Spacious room that was well decorated and thoughtfully equipped with everything we need for our stay.

We were greeted by Mike, who handed us a series of brochures of things to do with discount vouchers. He had numbered them in order of interest and his choices were brilliant. The rooms we had were spacious, spotlessly clean with a beautiful bedroom up a staircase. The area under the staircase was great for storing all our stuff and...

When booking this motel I got the impression what you see is what you get and that's exactly what we got. A family friendly motel who's doing all the right things. It has everything you need and for a motel I was pleasantly surprised. The rooms are spacious, clean and well presented and the spa pool is a great bonus!...
