Really good big bedrooms. Stayed in a 2 bedroom unit with 3 people was so spacious. Very helpful and friendly owner. Great value for money. Made to feel welcome. Given brochures about rotorua. Would definitely stay again.

We stayed for 2 nights in this motel, which is located some distance away from the city centre. We were allocated an upstairs studio unit with attached spa bath. The room itself was nothing to shout about - small and uninspiring looking, and because of the lack of space everything looked rather cluttered. The bed was reasonably comfortable and the free wifi was useful.

What set this motel apart from the rest was the excellent service provided by Terry and Karen, the couple who manage the premise. Terry was helpful and informative about all things Rotorua, and despite recovering from a recent hip surgery even offered to carry our bags up the stairs to our unit. Every morning our complimentary breakfast was delivered to our room within the appointed time, and Karen even helped with our laundry with no extra charge. These little gestures were well appreciated and made our stay pleasant and memorable.

Stayed here for two nights and the owners could not have been more helpful. Picked us up from the airport, drove us into town for the evening meal and picked us up again afterwards. Very helpful information about the area. The room was clean, well equipped and with good internet access. Plus there was an added bonus of a spa pool in a private courtyard at the back!

My husband and I came over from Aussie for a funeral staying 3 nights. Our room was clean, comfortable and well equipped. Terry and Karen are possibly the friendliest and the most obliging people we have come across in our travels; nothing was too much trouble. Loved the cooked breakfast and that there was a courtesy bus on hand. I would not hesitate in recommending Fenton Court Motel to everyone that was considering a stay in Rotorua. I know we would definitely stay again if the opportunity arose.

My family stayed here last week, for 3 nights. Very clean, comfortable rooms. Great set up for families we were in unit 2. Karen and Terry were really helpful and even did our family size basket of washing-no charge. They were also really helpful in information on things to do and see. We had a wonderful 3days at the Fenton Court Motel. Thanks again!!!!!

While Fenton Court is not centrally located, its not too far from the City Center either. With most amenities nearby and excellent hospitality of the host, we were happy to stay at the motel. I liked it that the managers gave us some quick tips about things to do as soon as we arrived. They were fairly well-informed about local goings-on, specialties, etc. The advice helped.

I would prefer the ground floor rooms as the car can be parked right outside. That way, I could unload only the necessary amount of luggage. There were no complains with the quality of linen, simple crockery and generally well-appointed rooms. The rooms and bathroom are quite spacious as well. However, the spa bath was the cherry on the cake. It was fun to just soak yourself in the spa after a day's activities.

Room Tip: Choose the ground floor rooms with the spa bath
