In summary a fantastic stay if you want value for money in Rotorua. Firstly lets get the elephant in the room out of the way. I would define the property as a motel rather than a hotel, but are probably required to call it a hotel as you cannot park your car directly in front of your room. Not a... More

Booked this motel online. The price is right. Employees were very friendly & helpful. Immaculately clean and freshly remodeled. Has a hot tub & pool. Bus stop directly in front of the hotel. Gave us additional teas & coffee upon request.
