My family stayed here for three nights. It was very clean and comfortable. The office staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Sheryl was especially helpful and advised me and booked our activities. She also helped me plan the next few nights at our next locations. I highly recommend staying here.

Pleased to hear you enjoyed you stay with us at Geneva Motor Lodge and in Rotorua. I was only too pleased to help assist with your forward bookings as I am sure that any other of our Host Member Properties would hopefully have done for you also, especially during busy times it isn't always easy to to just turn up...

Comfortable motel accommodation a short drive out of downtown Rotorua. Well equipped room. Friendly, helpful staff. One of many motels in this area. We felt it gave good value for money. We got a good nights sleep and had all the amenities we needed.

The hosts at this motor lodge are extremely friendly and helpful, and it enjoys a good location on Fenton St. The unit we were in is getting a little tired and is in need of refurbishment, but satisfied our needs; and at least the beds were all comfortable and it was clean.

The Geneva Motor Lodge is situated not far from the centre of Rotorua on the main motel drag. It is mid priced, of moderate quality; clean but looking a bit dated. The management are friendly without being outstanding. All in all the Geneva is middling.

Thank you David for your comments. Yes I agree but we do try our best to keep them to a reasonable standard by keeping them regularly painted and immaculately clean. We also try to keep up to date with technology ie: Fast Fibre Unlimited Free Wifi and over the past few months have installed Smart 40"Tv's

Bill and Cheryl are wonderful hosts and maintain this property in very good order. Walking distance to CBD and room very comfortable with a lovely large spa bath!

Thanks Phil for your comments , and sorry we don't offer AirConditioning (especially with these hot & humid nights we have been having of late) but with the Sulphur here in Rotorua it just never lasts and becomes very expensive there would only be about 1 or maybe 2 Motels that do offer this, one a new property who has...

Modern unit in a good location walking distance to town center. Managers were very helpful in providing suggestions of things to do in and around Rotorua. Room is fairly standard with a basic kitchen Microwave and fry pan only, but was all we needed. Few minutes walk to local restaurant was well worth the recommendation from the hosts.

Excellent price, great place. Provided a safe place to store two of the bikes we had with us, and was extremely helpful when I left something behind. Room was clean and tidy, although air conditioning would have been greatly appreciated. Also, thanks for letting me borrow your tools :)

Thank you Alex for your review. We try our best to accommodate our guests with bikes by helping with storage etc as we know how popular the Biking scene is in Rotorua.

Managers were very welcoming and helpful. Love that the unit was very clean and in good repair. Price was reasonable. The only down side was the beds were too saggy and soft for us, probably need replacing. The position is convenient and parking is available. Wifi was free, great!

Thank you Leanne for taking the time to review our Motel, Reviews are always appreciated. I am sorry you didn't find your bed so comfortable, Although we don't really get too many complaints about our beds we have replaced a few, it would have been good to know which room your were in so we could have checked,

We usually visit the first Sunday of each month. Geneva is situated just across the road from the racecourse where the Rotorua Jazz Club holds their meetings.
