Really friendly owners greet you at Rotovegas. We stayed in a one bedroom unit with two teenagers, which was a reasonable price. We loved the unique decor in the room. It added something special to the stay. The kids liked the cleanliness of the modern kitchen and bathroom. We all made good use of the heated pool which is a...

Hi Nzlema Thanks for the review we appreciate your feedback. Glad to see you enjoyed our facilities and the room. We have thermal curtains and find that it doesn't get that warm in Rotorua to warrant the noisy un-environmentally friendly use of heat pumps or air cons but we are constantly upgrading our rooms for whats best for our customers....

Fabulous motel which was good value for money. The room was very spacious and had a really well equipped kitchen. Clean and well maintained. The service from everyone we encountered at the motel was wonderful and they were all really friendly. The pool, table tennis and play area was great for the children. Will definitely stay again.

A nice surprise at the end of our journey, this a funky and friendly place to stay. The level of facilities is excellent with 2 elements and microwave, a comprehensive range of utensils except steak knives (Then again I am one of these old fashioned tourists who loves to cook their own meals). The beds were generously and well appointed,...

Hi Traveltane, Thanks for taking the time to do a review great you enjoyed your stay. But sad for you that you only stayed in Rotorua for the 1 night the average length of stay is 2 and a half nights but you can easily fill 5 nights with free activities and some of the many paid activities. Hopefully you'll...

Great little place with nice sized room and Spa! Seems to be a theme but I'm not surprised. Pretty much the best Motel I've stayed at , only a short walk to centre and a supermarket round the corner.

Phil and Carey are incredibly generous hosts. I've started this review in this way because they are absolutely brilliant at running the Rotovegas. From the moment I walked into the reception area, I knew I'd hit a live wire. Phil was straight into telling me about places to see/visit/experience in Rotorua, as well as offering discount vouchers, local tips, and...

We are honestly dumbfounded at how this place has received any negative reviews! From the minute we arrived, we loved this motel in this mildly stinky town. We were greeted by a super chilled owner?/manager Phil who was helpful, kind and very down to earth, and who promptly showed these weary, wet travelers their beautiful room. The room was massive,...
