Stayed here for 3 nights, the apartments were perfect, really spacious two level loft styled with a heated spa out the back. Hosts are incredibly nice and the wifi is amazing, new fibre optic cable so I had no drama's at all.

Will definitely be coming back!

I booked the Arista for a group of 8. Mike and Annemarie were great! We were made to feel very welcome and no request was too hard. All information and assistance was provided without hesitation. The apartments are beautiful and we all had a wonderful stay. Will definitely return to the Arista!

From the moment we arrived, we were given a warm welcome. I was travelling with a group of University students and they were amazed by the quality of the rooms. The proprietors went out of their way to make us welcome and no request was too much for them.

Room Tip: The studios are fantastic

Thank you for such a great stay. We had 2 nights booked but were very happy to extend this for another night because it was so pleasant (in fact we didn't want to leave then either). The room had been really well cared for. The bed was new and very comfortable, and the thermal spa bath is so relaxing. Our hosts were welcoming, laid-back and very helpful. They gave us really good advice as to what is good to see and do around Rotorua with a family, which made our time there very enjoyable and less expensive than it could have been. Anne-Marie and Mike, thank you so much, we hope your holiday over in our direction was as pleasant as ours was with you, and that all is going well for your family :) Cheers, Luke & Leanne.

Hi Luke and Leanne, Thank you very much for the lovely review. We certainly love our Australian families staying with us. You made an interesting comment on the local knowledge. I think this is really important to arrive in Rotorua where ever you are staying and use local knowledge. This is often much better than taking advice from people who don’t live and work here. Thanks again and hope to see you again one day.

We stayed with our family for 3 nights and had a great time. The rooms were perfect and looked just like the photos. The hosts have paid attention to all that a family would need and want in the apartments. The hosts are great and were very helpful. The kids also loved it. Good value for obey too. We will definitely stay there again on or next holiday.

Have just stayed here for 4 nights and could not have been happier with facilities. Room was net and tidy with plenty of warm bedding for those chilly nights. Hosts Mike & Ann-Marie were lovely and also gave us a lot of ideas of free things to do in & around Rotorua with our young children. Onsite playground was great for the kids for those in between activities times. Would happily stay again.

Hi thanks for your review. Yes Rotorua can get some chilly nights but with our thermal heating and electric blankets on the beds you never know when staying at Arista.
There is a lot on offer in Rotorua with a range of activities making it a great place to visit on any budget. We are always happy to give ideas and help plan activities.
