“Accommodation wit h cooking facilities and free wifi”
Reviewed 25 March 2014

Friendly and thoughtful operator. The units we stayed even has jacuzzi in the backyard. There is even free wifi. Good for those travelling in big groups. The unit I stayed in can fit 7 persons. Fully equipped kitchen. Has laundry facilities and free DVD for guests to watch.

We stayed here for two nights this week.
The rooms were spacious and modern, and the small modern kitchenette was a surprise addition.
The beds were very comfortable too!!
The facilities were clean and tidy.
The staff were all fantastic, friendly and knowledgable about the local sights and surrounds.

Surprise bonuses- free unlimited DVD hire, which was great for our kids(and they had a great selection too)
And
The breakfast bundle (loaf of bread, condiments, a box of cornflakes, milk, and a bottle of juice)which received on arrival, which was completely unexpected!

High recommend!!!

One of our favourite motels on our recent New Zealand trip; plenty of space, great spa pool and friendly people. Loved having the two levels, and our own spa pool. If you are looking for a place to stay in a Rotorua, look no further!

The room was roomy and comfortable and the kitchen was well equipped. The owner told us about some great hikes and free public areas where we could experience thermal activities -- mud pools and side by side hot and cold streams. Friends of ours recommended Arista and we are happy to recommend it as well.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Arista. The location was very good and the rooms are spacious, quiet and comfortable and the private jaccuzi was a nice touch.
The real value comes from Mike who is friendly, super helpful and has great advice and tips on places to see in Rotorua and surrounding areas that you wont see in a tourist guide.
