We were greeted by Mike with a warm smile and a welcoming manner. No reservation, he was more than accomodatiing. Top notch decore with black leather furniture, a spa bath in a private courtyard off your room. Comfortable beds and very very clean. I can not fault this place and would recommend this to anyone visiting Rotorua. Forget these big hotels. Enjoy a bit of Kiwi hospitality with Mike and his family

We had a very nice stay at Arista. Quiet and clean spacious rooms with a separate, private spa bath on geo-thermal. Laundry facilities on-site. Probably would want to drive to most restaurants, but the Urbano Bistro, ($$$) is close and excellent.

Hi there, thanks very much for your nice review. Yes town is 1.1 km away from us. Some tend to take a taxi then walk home most tend to go for a drive. The urbano restaurant is only a couple hundred meters down the road and we classify the best in Rotorua. We hope you make it home ok to the USA and thanks for coming to New Zealand.

Arista was a great place to stay. The rooms were fresh, clean and spacious and the spa pool was a great way to relax. Lovely and quiet with lovely extra touches that made it a perfect place to stay. The bed was so comfortable we had to buy ourselves a new one when we got home.

Hi Karen, thanks very much for your lovely review. Yes most our guests are enjoying the comfort of the new king beds we put in last year. It's probably one of the most important things to get right. Hope your new bed is going well. Thanks again.

Myself and a group of friends stayed here recently for a mountain biking trip. The accommodation is perfect for what we required with a living area downstairs and the sleeping area upstairs. There is a wash down area for the bikes and we could keep them locked up in the outdoor spa area at the back of the unit. There is a laundry available and free WIFI. There are many room options including a house for large groups. The Motel is walking distance to the centre of Rotorua and a short drive or ride to the Redwood Forest MTB area.
The hosts Mike and Anne-Marie are two of the nicest people you could ever meet and made us feel right at home. Nothing was too much trouble for them.
I can thoroughly recommend the Arista and would have to say it's one of the best places I've ever stayed at.

Darren all I can say is like wise. You guys were a great bunch of Aussies and the whole family enjoyed the time we had with you. Mountain bike guests is certainly a market that we see potential in and we are certainly doing our best to accommodate for that market including storage, wash down area and basic mountain bike advice. Thanks for mentioning the WIFI we have put a lot of effort into this area and recognise this as a crucial service for our guests.

Thanks for inviting me out to have some fun with your group in the redwood forest, I'm now starting to do more exploring of late my self on the mountain bike. Darren thank you for sending us the photo,s and movie clip of the day trip. I will be certainly looking to you and the boys coming back this year. I really hope things are ok for you and the troops back home.

We had the benefit of a nights accommodation at this Rotorua Motel while attending a Reunion of Forestry employees in November and were very impressed with the warm welcome and friendly reception from all the staff including those servicing our room next morning. My wife was really impressed with the quality of the bed linen and commented on how comfortable the beds were. We have stayed in a number of hotels in Rotorua and the Arista was by far the best value for money and we will return in the future.
