I traveled with my family and we had a lovely stay at Fairy Springs. We booked two cottages 7 and 8 and both were well maintained. Nothing over-the-top fancy but completely worth the money! The rooms are equipped with electric blankets and wall heating plate. The kitchenette has all the necessary cutlery (and even milk!) one would need to prepare...

We enjoyed a wonderful 3 nights at Fairy Springs Motel, which was conveniently located next to the Matai Maori Village - the primary reason for our visit in Rotorua. The rooms at Fairy Springs are spacious and clean, and they come with a full kitchen, equipped with everything you need if you intend to cook a meal, or simply warm...

Outstanding location close to many attractions within walking distance. Quiet, spacious rooms with all the amenities plus a spa! They also realize that travelers have many devices that need wifi access and are not stingy with the access codes like many other hotels and B&Bs.

This motel is in a great location, within walking distance of the Skyride, Rainbow Springs, and Mitai Maori Village. Other area attractions are within easy driving distance. The motel is worn, but clean and well maintained by friendly and helpful owners. The rooms have a well equipped kitchenette including a stove with oven, rare for motels in New Zealand in...

We stayed here for three nights in March in a one bedroomed apartment (twin beds in the bedroom plus a large double in the lounge). It was comfortable, clean, well equipped and a good base for seeing the attractions of Rotorua. It was less than an hour's easy drive to the Hobbiton movie set, which was amazing. The proprietor was...

Rotorua was 96% booked over Xmas period and for some reason this place was not fully booked. We had the choice of this hotel two backpackers or a lodge that cost $5800 for three nights. Suffice to say we chose this nice little joint. Very friendly staff, very tidy rooms, very cheap for what we got and when we got...

Friendly and efficient check in and check out. Despite being older buildings you can tell the owners have invested money in maintaining the motel. It is spotlessly clean with pleasing decor. We had a full kitchen in our unit and ample parking. Immaculately presented room and beds were amazing and made for a comfortable stay. It felt just like home....
