Stayed here for 2 nights (all too short a stay sadly!) in July, so the weather was rainy and windy.
Regardless of the nasty weather, the motel offered a warm welcome to their friendly establishment.
I opted for a room with a private outdoor jacuzzi/hot pool which was fantastic. This was located outside and under cover. It took a long while to fill up, but there was nothing better after a day out exploring in the wind and rain to come back and have a long soak in the hot water while listening to and watching the weather swirling around!
The room itself was also very good. Microwave and fridge (with free milk) and lots of tea/coffee/hot chocolate/biscuits. Also the usual things like a TV and free wi-fi internet access.
The bathroom was large, with a decent shower, toilet and sink. I would mention there's no bath, but when you've got a large hot tub sat outside, you don't really need one!
The free shuttle minibus was invaluable. They took me to the Polynesian Spa and also picked me up from a local supermarket when the rain was coming down.
In terms of location, it's around a 15 minute stroll from central Rotorua up Fenton Street, but in pleasant weather it's a nice enough walk. Local amenities include a supermarket and fast food restaurants within a 10 minute walk.
Would definitely come here again, hopefully in summer next time!
