The Rotovegas motel is towards the outskirts of the 'commercial' areas of town, making it both relatively quiet and handy for the shops and restaurants. The staff are very friendly, and had kindly upgraded our booking to one of their two room apartments. The beds were very comfortable, and the included wifi gratefully received. If only the weather had been...

We stayed here for 4 nights through the recent Cyclone and found it very comfortable and spacious. Our room also had a private and completely sheltered outdoor patio that we found excellent for drying our things - v useful with the Niagara Falls outside that we experienced (we understand this is to have a spa-bath in the future). It was...

Nice spacious rooms.... all amenities provided, well equipped. Location of motel is superb, everything is close by. There are several restaurants close to it and supermarket (countdown). It is on the main street but no noise in rooms, rooms are well maintained and have hot jacuzzi inside every studio. Space in studio is too good Parking is right in front...

I really liked this motel, it was clean, simple and the staff were very friendly. The retro decor was cute and I enjoyed the hot tub too! The showers could do with updating but other than that I would happily stay there again.

Our family of 4 (2 adults, 2 teens) stayed in a two bedroom apartment. It was well appointed with plenty of homely touches & most importantly clean. (good Wifi too) A great base, close to the supermarket and quick drive to the cafes & restaurants in town. Small private deck with a spa pool was a great place to relax...

Great stay for our one night in Rotorua. Staff were very helpful with recommending what to do on a rainy day. Room was smaller than we thought but no issues! Loved the retro vibe and the giant spa in the room. Very reasonably priced. Would stAy again 🙂

Good location, 900m or 10 minutes walk to the i-SITE, and just a couple of minutes to the central mall; countdown is just across the road as well. Staff were helpful and assisted with luggage storage after check out. Room was spacious, however, the shower is rusty, and the shower curtains emit a strange odour (avoid the room just behind...

Hi Jellybellymelly Thanks for the review and great to hear you enjoyed our central location and customer service. Sorry you didn't like the new curtains and what appears to be rust is in fact sulphur residue which your right our cleaners should keep on top off and ill be sure to talk with them. Hopefully you enjoyed our ultra fast...

This was our last hotel of our holiday...and was ok. Our unit had an old leather sofa in it which wasn't comfortable (others had new fabric ones - we could see in when rooms being cleaned). Rooms getting tired with marks on walls but they are quite sound proof in the bedrooms. Location is a walk into town but really...

Hi Jen32B Thanks for taking time to do a review sorry we didn't meet your expectations those couches you saw are actually beds so not applicable to the studios. Glad you had a chance to do some cooking but hopefully were able to enjoy some of the other positive things which Rotovegas has to offer like the hot pool, wifi,...

The room 22C was very dirty, the toilet door lock was faulty. A big problem when there was 5 people staying.All kitchen pots, pans etc were dirty, quite disgusting. The taps leaked to the spa pool. Not a good experience.
