If you need to be in Rotorua, I would recommend this place. Clean and large. My only negative is that there is no a/c and in the summer months it does get warm in the rooms even with the breeze. And, you need the a/c so as not to smell the sulfur. The smell can really get awful and it...

Hello Barbara, Thank you for taking the time to review, it is lovely when people find the suites spacious and comfortable for their stay. The suites do have lovely ceiling fans which is a great way to move the air when sleeping, also the security stays on the windows means that you can safely have a window open to allow...

Nice and clean 2 bedroom self contained apartment. Amenities and beds are very good and more than satisfactory, nice firm bed in the main room. I did find not having air conditioning a bit of a thing especially as it was very warm and there were noisy guests outside but they did quite down by 23:00 so felt with that....

This is a fantastic place to stay. The owners are so friendly and helpful. We had a private spa pool in our apartment which was modern, clean, spacious and had all the amenities you could possible want. Lots of extra touches that put this accommodation above others we have tried. The pillow menu is just one example.

Stayed here 2 nights. Excellent accommodation. Very friendly and helpful hosts. We had a lounge/kitchenette, separate bedroom and bathroom with enormous hot tub. We borrowed 2 very basic bikes from them and did a short loop through the thermal areas to the Government buildings. Make sure to visit the stunning nearby Redwood Grove when you come.

The first thing that hits you when you approach Rotorua is the smell of sulphur, which of cause everyone knows about. The motel was very nice, clean and friendly people who ran it. We had a spa tub in the back of our apartment which also had a big shower. We had a bedroom and separate lounge with kitchen which...

Travellers are spoilt for choice when it comes to staying in Rotorua. The main strip is crowded with alternative accommodation options. Silver Fern is probably priced slightly above average, but they can justify doing so. The rooms are very clean and tidy, well appointed, and provide all the amenities that you would expect. Our room had new carpets which enhanced...

This is exactly what a well run B&B/Guest Hose/Motel should be like and we have spent over 30 years running ones in different countries and must have stayed in dozens in our life times.
