“Fantastic Value for Money”
Reviewed 11 October 2013

Fantastic value for money motel with great hosts, Karen and Terry who went out of their way to make our stay a great one. Rooms very clean and tidy. Fantastic complimentary breakfast with a cooked breakfast option, never had this before with a continental brekkie. Karen very kindly transported us to a restaurant for dinner and picked us up again all at no cost. Fantastic all round, will definitely stay again.

What a great motel with fantastic hosts. The very private spa pool which we filled each time with clean fresh water with piles of towels + surrounding covered patio was superb with chairs + tables for wine + nibbles. An extra treat after our super delivered breakfasts was escorted transport to + from our restaurant of choice. Very good selection of motel unit sizes, we had 5 adults in ours with lots of space. Thanks Karen + Terry for your great welcome, we'll be back + spread the word of your great value motel.

We arrived early evening with no booking.Owners gave us a room immediately which was excellent. Was a very nice 2 bedroom as there were 3 adults. And with breakfast in the morning delivered when it suited just topped of the stay. Absolutely recommended place to stay and very nice helpful owners. Thank you very much and will definitely return

It had been a while since we had stayed. With new owners like Terry & Karen we’ll be back and will be telling our friends & family to book ahead.

Great weekend treat – we love the spa pool units in a private outdoor courtyard that you fill yourself (clean, able to adjust temp to suit with relaxing surrounds). A special was running at the time that included breakie with 2 nights stay.

Quiet, warm and well appointed we had a very relaxing stay made all the more enjoyable by such accommodating hosts.

Room Tip: Book a spa pool unit - you won't want to leave the motel but Rotorua is worth exploring.

Five 'GoldCard' oldies stayed at the Fenton Court motel in August 2013 and we would all honestly say that this would be THE BEST motel we have stayed in NZ for the price charged. We were able to get early access to our unit and had a cooked breakfast for each day included with our deal. Karen, the manager, kindly drove us to and from a restaurant to celebrate our aunt's 83rd birthday so we could all have some special drinks! The spa pool in our 2 bedroom unit was marvellous, clean with fresh water set to our own temperature requirements, and the broadband internet was amazingly fast and easy to access. The motel cat was lovely as well!! We can't think of anything that wasn't 100% for the reasonable rate charged.

Room Tip: We had a 2 bedroom unit for 5 adults and had plenty of space in warm friendly accommodation with amp...

We stay regularly in Rotorua as we live only 1 hour away, and thought we'd try this Motel as the reviews were good and we were able to use our Flybuys to stay - so it seemed a perfect and obvious choice!

The room was comfortably big with a sofa bed and a single bed in the "lounge" with a good sized flat screen tv (my husband was impressed with the number of SKY channels available!). There was a well equipped kitchen, with a clean bathroom beside it (toilet & shower in one room).

There was a bedroom at the end with a queen sized bed, and another flat screen tv. This bedroom opened onto a small courtyard which had a self-filling spa pool, and was nicely decorated with garden ornaments and bushes, and had a small table with two chairs. There were several extra towels rolled up on the ledge of the spa, which were a really nice touch as most places never provide extra spa towels unless asked!

The man on reception was one of the friendliest I have met too. Checking in and out was a breeze thanks to him!

I would recommend this as a great place to stay for solo travellers, those on business, couples and families. We have definitely put Fenton Court Motel on our "must stay again" list!

I booked one night for myself and my partner, who turned 50 the day we stayed so it was a special day.
Karen one of our hosts was so good, she had a bottle of wine in our room on arrival and drove us to Skyline Restaurant and returned for us later. We were given a late check out the next day. The room was clean and quite comfortable. Only down side was that there was no kitchen sink to wash any dishes,glasses but then on saying that we had a lovely private spa out the back of our unit.This unit was clean and the bath towels fluffy and sheets good.(I am a cleaner at a motel so know what to look for.)
I would recommend Fenton Court to anyone and we would go back again. Terry our other host was just as helpful on the phone when ringing to book.Thankyou for your friendly service and been so helpful with directions especially when i got lost!

Room Tip: This room was quiet as it was down the back off the road.One of the ones behind the office.
