My husband and I stayed in Rob Roy motel in Rotorua for one night before driving on to Palmerston North on 4 Nov 2016. The room was very spacious and the bed was very comfortable. There was a small kitchenette where tea and coffee making facilities were available. We booked a tour to the Maori Viliiage at the i-site office...

My son and I stayed here for a weekend of mountain biking. Highlights include super friendly staff, great value for a super warm, tidy enough, clean room, adequate bathroom and toilet facilities with a retro fit out. Great wifi and TV worked fine. The old green kelvinator fridge looked cool however, it froze the eggs but they still cooked up...

Stayed for National road relays - disgusting motor lodge, very dirty and in disrepair. None of us will ever stay there again. They seriously need to do some work on rooms. Shower rose was totally broken, sink plug hole was rusted, one of the sink taps kept coming off in your hand when trying to turn on, cobwebs everywhere, didn't...

It is rather dated but it is clean and tidy inside. Externally it could do with a tidy up- paint new spouting, spa pool area. The individual spa pool is ok but you need to request hot water and sometimes there is a waiting list and when it is full the hot water is turned off meaning you have will...

Room was okay.. However bathroom smelt like dampness. There is a Sulphur pool out the back that stinks out your room and car of rotten egg smell to a point of it being unbearable! Free unlimited wifi which was good, however that's about the only plus for this place! The parking is extremely hard to get in and out of...

We have stayed at this motel for the past 4 years when we do the Tough Guy/Tough Girl challenge. We have always found it to be a very lovely clean and tidy motel. Last year it changed hands and we were very disappointed as this year our room was quite dirty. The shower looked like it hadn't been cleaned properly...

A return to this motel after 15years left us with the impression that it is tired and in need of a good renovation. I cannot complain about room size, bed quality, or reception, but the finer points need attention. Only 2 Sky channels are available, but their advertising indicates full Sky. It is about 3 blocks walk (10minutes) to the...

I had a studio room (was in Rotorua for work) First impression a little "outdated" - Colours of walls were in need of a more vibrant colour. Kitchen was abit worn down - But had a microwave, fridge, toaster and stove top. Bathroom was spacious and clean. Decor in toilet outdated and door needed to be repaired but shower was...
