The large outdoor heated pool and private mineral pools are winners for this property. Excellent hosts who go out of their way to oblige. Spacious grounds. We were upgraded to a superior two bdrm unit at no extra cost.

Having the heated swimming pool and the mineral pools to enjoy on a cold night sure is a fun way to relax in the evening, and we are glad you enjoyed the pools and the complimentary upgrade. We sure do have quite large spacious grounds here at the Cleveland which makes it nice for when the kids need to burn...

We stayed in the newly refurbished Cottage - and if this is an indication of the standard of things to come across the entire complex then this is a big Wow! From us. Extremely welcoming and well informed team, really clean and comfortable. Great facilities. We enjoyed the thermal baths and the kids loved the trampoline and regular pool. I...

A lot of time, effort and love went into the refurbishment of the Cottage and it is pleasing to see the effort was well worth it and you enjoyed yourselves so much. This is the look we are pushing across the entire property as part of our improvement program with 5 units already fitted with the new bathrooms. The team...

I nearly always use trip advisor when making a choice on where to stay or eat and chose the Cleveland because it came up highly rated and very reasonably priced. I noticed that a few people had grumbled that it was a bit basic so I knew what to expect but all we wanted was somewhere clean and comfy, to...

The service that my dad and I experienced was very warming and welcoming. There nothing that we can complain the room. Where you are situated in Rotorua is very good not that far from where we were going. My dad and I just felt we were at home.

Convenient, friendly place with all amenities. Stayed there with a group of 10 to 12 year olds, and everyone liked it. Nice, hot outdoor poll, good beds and showers, friendly owners. A bit of a walk to the town center, best to go by car.

Thank you for your kind review, it was a pleasure having you here. We are glad they were the kids were able to relax and enjoy the pools and trampolines. We are a 15 min walk to the Center of town or 1.4km to the I-Site so sometimes people do prefer to take a car.

Found the facilities and location of the motel perfect for purpose . That being accommodating 11 teenage boys and 1 adult. The amenities suited the boys as they had choices to keep them occupied. Will most certainly use this complex again next year and beyond.

I travelled with my daughter and two grandchildren and had our own bedding for one of the children so we had a studio unit. It was plenty spacious enough and had good TV and access to free movies.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Welcome to The Cleveland Thermal Motel. The Cleveland Thermal Motel is perfectly situated only minutes from both Rotorua's lake front and city centre, and in close proximity to many leading tourist attractions. We are an outstanding accommodation option for those visiting this tourist haven in the central North Island. Set in over 2 acres of spacious grounds with manicured lawns and beautiful gardens, the motel also offers a great outdoor heated pool, two hot thermal mineral pools, and a large children's playground area. Our comfortable rooms and amenities make The Cleveland the perfect accommodation choice for couples getaways, large groups, and in particular, family holidays. We have plenty of parking for boats, trailers, second cars or large vehicles, and with our location within walking distance of the markets at the lake, the central city, and the hospital, we are ideal for those without transportation too. ... more   less
