Let me start by saying that I have travelled the world in my 22 years service in the Navy and I have stayed in some less than reputable establishments, this place is by far the worst. We were greeted by a man who's catchphrase was but we are very clean, now he was very animated about his catchphrase and stated...

Generally run down and old units. False advertising on website. Spa didnt work. Sky t.v was advertised. The place gave me flea bites. Owner kept making excuses re spa and even promised room with spa next day but only had more excuses. Paid same prices to stay at Alphin motel and studio motel on previous trips the year before and...

I now know why they make you pay at check in. It's so you can't get your money back once you see your room. Smelly dirty carpets. Ants crawling over the kitchen bench and wall heater not working. Advertised as having satellite TV only to find that's not true. I could go on about this dump but it's all ready...

On arrival my daughter was told that the spa in her room had been turned off and would take 8 hours to warm up - one of the reasons we stayed here was because of the in room...

We stayed at Gwendoline Court Motel for 3 nights in June 2016. Even though the hotel needed some improvements (as there was a few holes in shower and kitchen needed a bit of love) the spa just made the hotel so much better! It was so nice to just relax after a day out site seeing in our spa, especially...

This motel was booked for us and we stayed 10 days while on business. It was clean and conveniently located, as Rotorua is a small town and most activities are convenient. The motel in 1950s vintage and has not been updated. Towels were changed daily, but beds were made only occasionally. The back door to the rudimentary spa didn't lock....

The motor lodge was booked by our friends and therefore when we checked the Trip reviews it was a bit too late. The owners were obviously new as they were not savvy with the systems etc. However Anne greeted us and was very friendly and polite. The rooms needed a good airing as the carpet stench was quite strong. In...

We stayed here during April 2016 and found our unit to be short on the basics. The kitchen was very basic with a toaster, kettle, microwave and a hotplate making cooking meals hard. Crockery and cutlery was only for 3 people yet we booked as a family of 5. The beds were comfortable enough after a day spent walking the...
