“Cheap and Cheerful”
Reviewed 15 September 2013

Located on motel row, the Capri Court is very good value for money. It is clean and tidy with good attention to detail. The room featured an enormous spa bath which if you enjoy a soak would be a wonderful way to relax.

The host are very welcoming and eager to help.

The only negative was the comfort of the mattress. It was long overdue for replacement and felt saggy and lumpy. It made for a very restless night's sleep.

There is no Sky television.which may be a little limited for some international visitors who want to keep up with international news or sport.

Thanks for reviewing us, love the 'cheerful' part !! I would like to know what room you were in as it sounds like the bed needs attention - sorry you had an uncomfortable night. I don't understand that you could not get Sky TV - we DO have Sky channels in fact 2 x sport sky channels, so don't know what happened there. Anyway glad you did enjoy a good old soak in the huge Spa Pool.
Cheers Glenn and Sharon

Thank again for having us your were more than welcoming and informative. The room was comfortable and tidy - the heater was even turned on prior to our arrival, it was like home away from home. My partner loved the spa pool so much that he now wants to install one in our bathroom :) Definitely will stay here again on our next visit to Rotorua.

very clean and accommodating, have stayed here on a number of occasions and always found it to be the same, we always try to get the same unit which is very spacious and has everything you need hence the reason we keep going back. Handy to racetrack and walking distance to town and entertainment. After a very busy day you can always come back and relax in the spa. In all a very good place to stay.

Stayed in the studio unit. Well presented, clean, tidy and modern. Loved the spa too. It's great value for money and we will be going back again. My husband and I have stayed regularly at this hotel for the past 15 years and each time has been great. It's close to town and the staff are really friendly.

Stayed in the small family room. This was well supplied having all that we could need and was spacious and easy for our toddler to move around. Private spa and courtyard was handy too. Friendly staff and great service.

My Family and I got the 2 bedroom apartment and it was a lovely place to stay in. The first room has a queen bed with smaller TV, second room has two single beds, and the living room has a sofa bed and a single bed beside it with a 32"TV, dining table, stove, fridge, and microwave. They bring the definition of full kitchen to a higher level with all the provided utensils and appliances we were able to cook our favorite foods. The four star represent the cleanliness and privateness of each unit. The unit also come with around 6 or more towels and heated blankets. We are glad we chose Best Western Capri Court with all they provided for us in the room.
The private geothermally heated bubbling spa pool works great and the host (Sharon) was very helpful with all the information we needed on Rotorua attraction. Greatly recommended for people looking for a hotel with great combination of being spacious, centrally located, and great value. Would love to stay here for a second night if time allowed.
