The Arista is an average standard family kiwi motel - nothing more. It is certainly not a top 10 offering.
We stayed here for a couple of days over Easter. On the plus side they have good sized rooms with lots of beds for family groups and the management are very pleasant.
On the other side of the coin, the standard of cleaning could be a little higher (we found chocolate wrappers and other detritus under the beds) and there were quite a few areas in our unit that could have done with a lick of paint. Most of the fittings in our unit were also showing their 20+ year age. Prospective occupants should also be aware there is no fan in the bathroom so it can get pretty humid in there and the upstairs areas can get quite cool overnight probably due to the high ceiling.
The Arista is fine if you want a large family room in an average motel but if I was re- booking in Rotorua I would choose to spend my $210 per night somewhere else.More
