We took a last minute trip to Rotorua and booked online. We were due to arrive 1.5 hrs after reception closed and after a quick email they were more than happy to wait for us, which turned out to be 2hrs. Room was on the small side but manageable, the bed and pillows were comfortable. The location of the motel...

We stayed for three nights and even though quite basic, we enjoyed our stay. Room was comfortable with a small bathroom and kitchenette, quite adequate for a few nights & the continental breakfast though basic was nice & saved having to go somewhere else. Location is great right in town and walking distance from eat street which have lots of...

This is a good central location but the building, decor, and amenities all need refreshing. Lovely friendly staff, but very basic rooms and decorations. OK for a night but I wouldn't want to stay longer.

We only stayed one night at the Accolade Lodge Motel, but it was a good night. Diana in reception was excellent and gave us a map of Rotorua and suggestions on things to do. We ended up walking downtown through Eat Streat and down to the lake, which was very lovely. The only qualm we had with the Motel was...

This motel was perfect location and good value for money. The lady who was on reception was very helpful! Very clean and tidy with great facilities. Breakfast was quite basic but fine for what we needed.

The room we had was very small with very little storage. No wardrobe and only a coat hook and hangers to hang clothes. Only one chair and two stools without backs were in the room. Parking was available in front of the unit. No cooking facilities other than a microwave.

We 4 ladies stayed at motel for 2 nights. We enjoyed everything - big, clean and comfortable studio. Staff was lovely ad helpful. City center can be reached for less than 10 minutes by foot. Just across the street there is a shopping mall and huge supermarket.

Staff at reception very friendly. Room ok but cd have been cleaner. Plug in bathroom did not work. Breakfast next morning was just continental although that was not what we were expecting. Tinned peaches and tinned fruit salad, choice of 3 cereals, cheap bread and jam. Toaster provided, tea, coffee and juice. OK place to stay for one night.

We stayed three nights. The location is good, and just across the road from a major grocery store. The staff are very helpful and friendly. Our room though, is in need of some TLC. The bathroom was not as clean as it could be, and the towels were old. The face cloths were stained yellow and not very nice to...

Location good about 20 minute walk into main restaurant area. Got picked up from here for Maori experience, drove to Hobbiton and Waiotapu thermal park also went to hot water spa in the town which was lovely but girls if you go there are no hairdryers so take one with you. The motels manager is very friendly and helpful there...
