“Great location, welcoming owners”
Reviewed 3 July 2014

We stayed at Fenton Court Motel for 2 days early june, and were impressed with the cleanliness of the well furnished rooms, not to speak about courtesy and helpfulness of the owners. Being on the first floor, we did not have a courtyard mineral pool, but no matter as it was raining both days.

Location wise, it's slightly less than a km from the Rotorua lake on a wide road, which makes the smell of sulphur substantially less than the large hotels near the lake. Conviencies in form of a Woolsworth, a mall with a food court, a liquor store, McDonalds Hungry Jacks and a few restaurents are close by, and the town center is an easy walking distance.

There are 20+ rooms in 2 buildings with ample space for parking, which ensures privacy and quiet.

What with a lovely breakfast both mornings, the helpful advice from the owners, the well lit and provided kitchenette and the comfortable beds, we had an amazing stay, and were sorry to be leaving. If we are in Rotorua again, we will surely stay here again. The accommodation is good value for money

Room Tip: Our triple room at one end on the first floor had a nice 2 person Jacuzzi in the bathroom, a TV in e...

I had been to this Motel on a weekend in June 2014. It is just amazing.
Spa was awesome.
Rooms were specious.
Kitchen was complete.
We had 6 beds for 5 people.
Two LED TVs with Sky.
Complementary breakfast provided was very good.
Most importantly, people and place was awesome.
Just go for it without thinking much,

The owners were fantastic. Nothing was too much trouble. The unit was clean and tidy. The breakfast was awesome. My family had a great 2 days stay. The accomodation was very cheap and the spa was amazing. Would highly recommend to any family. Cant wait to go back.

Thank you so much Karen and Terry for the amazing service you gave us!!

Anyone looking for an affordable, clean and tidy (yet not a cheap dump) place to stay need look no further! Since we stayed there two years ago, Karen and Terry have made this motel a much more enjoyable place to stay!

Plenty of tea, coffee and hot chocolate in the room (not cheap stuff either), more fresh towels than we could ever need, lovely comfortable beds, and a TV in the lounge AND the bedroom! Our own private spa in the courtyard was awesome, and again HEAPS of fresh towels!

But what stood out the most for us was Terry and Karen! What amazing hosts for us, we travelled with our 3 young girls for 5 nights, so we had plenty of washing as it was raining while we were in Rotorua, so I took our washing to the office and asked Karen if I could do a load, she told me to hand over the basket, Karen washed, dried and folded our washing and delivered it back to our room. And all this at no charge!! Karen told me we have better things to be doing on our break away than watching a machine! They also work endlessly to keep the grounds looking great.

Our complimentary breakfast every morning was great too! There was plenty of food for all of us and delivered hot!

Terry and Karen, I can see that you have improved the motel in the two years that you have been there and cant wait for the next stay! Thanks so much for the chats and great service. You have my recommendation always.

See you again soon ;)
Marieke, Steve and the girls :)

Great room, everything faultless and spotlessly clean. Friendly efficient service. Enjoyed the covered spa. Easy parking and close to our weekend sports venue. Excellent value for money. Top of the list for our repeat business and recommending to friends.

We had a studio with hot tub on the back patio, ground level. It was a clean but a bit dated. We liked the studio even so. The bed was nice, the bathroom very clean and the hot tub off our room with a private patio was really nice. We had to fill the tub up ourselves but that was just fine with us. We knew then that it was fresh and clean water. And it was great to soak under the stars in our own private little hot tub. Breakfast was included in our room rate and it was delivered to our room each morning. It was a very good and substantial breakfast. The front desk folks were very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed ourselves and would definitely stay again. Very quaint and lovely.

Room Tip: Try to get the studio with the "outside" hot tub as opposed to the inside soak tub.
