4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 April 2014

We found the Capri Court to be very close to everything in Rotorua The room was very clean and surprisingly, it had a small pool or large spa in the room that could be filled with geo thermally water in a very short time. The staff were very friendly but not "ïn your face".

We just stayed here one night and enjoyed it. The owner was really helpful and gave us loads of advice on the best use of our time for our short stay. The room was good, huge bed and nice spa pool in the bathroom. With hindsight we should've booked a room with spa pool and separate bathroom/shower room as having a shower from the hose over the spa pool was a bit awkward in comparison to showering in a normal shower enclosure but this was our oversight and I would certainly still recommend this motel to others.

Stayed 2 nights but wanted to stay more. Great rooms, with everything you need & a great spa out the back in a courtyard, private but spacious. Lovely area for relaxing. Very friendly & helpful staff. Highly recommended. Options for families like ours or singles.

This is an extremely easy place to find. I was given a very spacious studio. The host is very friendly and he gave me good recommendation on typical NZ inexpensive cheap eat, which is great. I got a really good deal so cannot complain!

We were three singles travelling in New Zealand for 6 weeks. When we got to Rotorua we had been on the road for almost 4 weeks and had become experts in what to expect of a New Zealand motel.
We were delighted with the Capri Court from the moment we arrived. We were made to feel very welcome and nothing was too much trouble.
We had a two bedroom unit (1 queen and 2 singles). There was also a single bed in the living room which enabled us to have our own sleeping space! The living room was spacious and there was a fully equipped kitchen. The spa in the courtyard off the bedrooms was an added bonus.
Another bonus was the laundry service. You give them your washing and they wash it and dry it in their drying room overnight. We got two loads done for a total of $15. Not expensive when you consider we had paid $6 or more load for a self wash and dry at other places (and we didn't have to keep running back to check on it).
The location is excellent with a superette (minimart) within walking distance and a supermarket less than 5 minutes drive. The lakefront, museum and CBD are less than 10 minutes drive.
Great place, great hosts, great location. Highly recommended.

This lovely inn is certainly the best accommodation that I have ever stayed throughout my 3 months tour in New Zealand! The motel is strategically located near the city centre, and walkable to famous thermal attractions and the well known Maori village (Te Puia). The studio room that I have stayed in is spacious, sparkling clean and exquisitely decorated. Inside our room, there is a king size and a super single bed, which you will hardly find in other motels. They are made of superb linen quality and very comfortable. The owners are also very dedicated and meticulous in assisting the guests. When we requested a taxi as our luggages are too heavy, the owner volunteered to drive us out to the I site. The warmth hospitality made us feel very welcomed and happy. This is truly a hidden gem in rotorua that deserves five stars rating!

This is a lovely motor inn in Rotorua. Our room had a queen bed and single bed, which worked perfectly for our family of three. The property was quiet, easy to get in and out of, and easy to find. The host was helpful with restaurant and attraction recommendations.
I highly recommend it!
