Reviewed 28 May 2014

We stayed here for just one night in May. We had a large group and a number of rooms booked. The motel manager (??) was extremely helpful in getting the right people into the right rooms. He was very friendly and had a joke or two with us. We were al arriving at different times, but this wasn't any problem for him. He was able to recommend somewhere nearby that was good to eat, and even offered his van to transport us to town if we wanted!
The rooms were clean, and spacious enough. The spa bath looked nice but we didn't have any time to use it.
It was the friendly attitude of the manager that will have us going back here in the future.

We were given room 14, the mobility room which was good, away from traffic of the road and very quiet. The room was clean, comfortable, more than enough towels to go arround.

Highly recommend a spa pool room, the spa pool is in a court yard and it's really nice to have your own pool to come back from dinner and relax in. Parking is numbered so you'll get your own car park.

Amazing friendly service, gave meal recommendations, told us which roads to take to avoid traffic. They also have a courtesy car for if you want to have a wine while out to dinner and don't want to drive afterwards.

The only thing to remember is that the spa takes a while to fill up, i'd say 15 minutes or so.

Room Tip: 14 is the mobility room

Clean, comfortable and well equipped accommodation. Our first stay at this Motel but will definitely be back. The things that travellers want were standard in this motel. Plenty of clean towels, well stocked tea, coffee, chocolate and biscuits. Outdoor spa with more towels and supplies. Karen and Terry could not do more to make you feel welcome. Can we help you with this . . . . . and that . . . . ? Genuine and helpful.
On top of all that the price was excellent and matched by breakfast was spot on.
Thanks, we will be back.

Room Tip: Just talk to Karen and Terry.

We stayed here with my parents and on there recommendation....
What a lovely welcome from the owners, terry is a real laugh,full of information and a great help... Typical kiwi block (goes out of his way to help folk), where as Karen clearly was having a busy time of it, as it was her birthday while we stayed and had family down/over from aussie..
The room's were clean and tidy and very spacious. The bathroom had a big spa-bath in it..
They also offer 10% discount at some of the attractions in town which is a bonus...

We stay again though its a little difficult to get to from uk....

Spacious, comfortable, clean, well-equipped apartment - couldn't have asked for better. The hot tub was a very enjoyable extra! Staff were very friendly and welcoming, with lots of helpful advice about what to see, places to eat, etc. Would certainly stay here again.

My son and I had just travelled from California over 18 hours via automobile, airliner and puddle jumper and arrived at the Fenton Court a little frantic, absolutely exhausted (I don't sleep on planes) and at 10:00 am, too early to check in. We were greeted by an effusively cheerful Marilyn who told me we were more than welcome to leave our bags until check-in time, but then checked with the people cleaning the rooms and had them do our room right then, so we could check in early! We arrived to a lovely, large suite with a sparkling clean kitchenette, sunny front room with twin bed, small dining table, sofa and coffee table, a back room with a queen-sized bed, and, wonder-of-wonders, a large personal spa in an attached outside area. Marilyn even checked to make sure the water was hot and showed me how to work the spa. Our two days in the area were filled with site-seeing (Marilyn gave us maps and highlighted the best routes to travel), but returning to the Fenton Court was like returning to a home away from home (without having to do house-work). Marilyn personally brought us our breakfast early on the morning we left and made sure we knew the proper roads to travel. I would stay there again in a heartbeat!

Room Tip: Rooms on the bottom floor have an enclosed personal outside spa area and a parking space right in fr...

My husband and I are from the USA. We traveled for a few weeks from the South Island up to Auckland on the North Island. I knew we were in for a treat when I looked out the window of the baggage claim at the Rotorua Airport and saw a friendly face WAITING FOR US outside the Fenton Ct Motel shuttle!! Her name is Marilyn. Her friendly reception was JUST THE BEGINNING of our wonderful 2 night stay at the motel. Marilyn could not have done ONE THING MORE to make our stay more delightful. She delivered a delicious hot cooked breakfast to our room each morning, dropped us off downtown when we needed it, reminded us to relax in our in-room spa when we were sore from hiking, made phone calls for us to help make a connection when we were leaving for an excursion. She did all this for us with a smile and never made us wait!! The room was clean, had an equiped kitchen, spa, internet, lots of room and very reasonable. We enjoyed our stay tremendously and would recommend this place to everyone.
