“Fantastic Stay !”
Reviewed 12 May 2013

We found this motel to be a brilliant place to stay. The people were friendly and helpful; the rooms were clean and tidy and the whole complex is great ! We had a lovely swim in the heated pool and made the most of the private pools. The owners took the time to personalise our stay and help us out when needed. The restaurant here also serves delicious meals. All round we could not fault the Boulevard Motel - a great place. Thank you so much :-)

Room Tip: The family units at the rear are very spacious; certainly a home away from home for us !

This was an average motel. You take you choice and take your chance with this type of motel. There are several in this part of town. The staff were welcoming. the room was adequate, nothing special. There was a strong smell of sulfur in the air, but that's part of Rotorua. The motel had a small but pleasant warm pool and private naturally hot private spa closets, both welcome at the end of a busy day. This motel was nothing special, neither was is unpleasant. It did for a night.

This was clean and close to town but needs a complete update on decor in rooms, also the rooms need air conditioning. Our room had no power in 1 wall so the tv in the bedroom didnt work or the power point in the bathroom. The decor was very old and the furniture was old and falling apart. I wouldnt stay there again.

Our stay almost got off to a very bad start when we arrived and the two-bedroom unit for two couples we had carefully ordered had been given away, and we were left with one double bedroom and the other bed separated from the kitchen by a curtain. Luckily they had two adjacent double one-bedroom units available which they gave to us a the same overall price for the booked unit. From then on things were great. Clean and pleasant with access to four mineral pools that are private to the motel. There is also a small swimming pool but it is nearly as hot as the hot pools, which was a shame at the height of summer. As Rotorua Motels go it is one of the less tacky ones and turned out to be good value.

Room Tip: Be very specific about your room requirements and don't allow them to change from your booked ro...

The unit we stayed in for one night was comfortable, clean and warm. There was a strong smell in the unit of sulfur, which is usual for Rotorua.
The unit could probably do with an upgrade, but would recommend it to any future travellers wishing to stay there.

On a recent trip to Rotorua,my husband picked the Boulevard to stay in as it advertised great Off season rates.With this they did deliver.We had a lovely upstairs 1 bedroom unit with a tv in the lounge and bedroom,comfortable bed and clean facilities.Free broadband was also included and there was a onsite Restaurant.The Boulevard Restaurant would be one of Rotorua's best kept little secrets,its quaint,good prices and delicious food,with friendly staff.Was pleasant to eat somewhere where you did not have to listen to the cooks clanging and bashing,just nice relaxing background music.We had forgotten the joy of having on-site restaurants at Motels and Holiday Inns,so convienent,and back up stairs to your room after a drink and meal,no driving around.I would stay there again and recommend it as a good place for families to stay as well as it has mineral pools,swimming pool and room for kids to play. Well Done Boulevard.

Room Tip: It is on a main road but we had no problem with night noise and our room was actually over the Resta...

I have known the Bradshaws for 21 years and have spend many pleasant stays being treated as one of the family there with my family. On this occasion I had visited Rotorua on business and booked a solo studio unit for an overnight stay. Yes the facilities are basic and the shower/bathroom/toilet area is very small but in my case more than adequate. They have always offered SKY and now have the latest flat screen TVs. Thumbs-up for me this time is the free broadband. I was able to skype my family with no problem at all. Value for money is excellent. Do have a meal at the Boulevard Restaurant and try award-winning Oppies. Great!
