Our hosts Shirley & Alan were very welcoming - happy to accommodate an unplanned early arrival, provided fresh milk on arrival - always pleasing - and offered us plenty of information on local attractions, had free DVDs to borrow from reception. Our room had 2 comfy lounge chairs, huge... More

We received a warm and friendly welcome after booking the Silver fern easily online. They had sent us some information about Rotorua before we arrive which was very helpful. Our room was very comfortable, clean and roomy with a separate bedroom, shower room and spa area which we didn't get to use, but looked great. Even though it is on... More

I had booked 3 rooms as per recommendation on trip advisor & I was not disappointed. Lovely friendly welcome on arrival & they also organised for us to be picked up for our Hangi adventure. The rooms are very spacious & clean. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

We only had one night in Rotorua but this place was perfect for an overnight stop. The welcome on arrival was warm, friendly and really helpful. They gave us all the information we needed about the surrounding area. The room itself was spotlessly clean and had everything we needed. Would definitely stay here again.

This was our first time at the Silver Fern, but it sure won't be our last! The spa is just perfect. So relaxing and private. I have never stayed in a Motel where the bed is perfect, the pillows are perfect, and I had a perfect night's sleep. Air con would be nice - however there is plenty of heaters.... More

My wife and I stayed at this motel for 2 nights. This town is generally pricey since it is a major tourist destination. We were mostly satisfied with the accommodations. We were given a ground floor room with a huge spa bath at no extra charge, even though we did not use it. The place was clean, well-maintained, and generally... More

Unfortunately, we had only planned one night in Rotarua as we were passing through from Auckland to stay with friends in Central Hawkes Bay. The Silver Fern is a beautiful place in a great location and a fellow Cumbrian host to boot! The accommodation is perfect, spotlessly clean and a very comfortable bed. We ordered the breakfast to our room... More

Very nice hotel and the staff is great too. The coolest part is having a spa jacuzzi within your room itself! The reception staff were very nice and lovely to talk with. The rooms are large and the hotel is centrally located.
