The motel is well located with good parking facilities. Our room and bathroom, though small, were extremely clean and comfortable. Because we had booked the motel for more than 2 nights, breakfast was included in the room price. The breakfast selection was large and very good and was served buffet style in part of a large lounge. The lounge had a TV (as did our room), a big selection of tourist information, discount coupons and books. The computers were also located here. (The motel also has bicycles for use of their guests -- we had our own car but this is certainly a plus for anyone without a car.) The hotel manager as well as his staff were efficient, friendly and very helpful. They recommended excellent places to eat and when we wanted to leave our luggage at the motel until late afternoon on our departure day, the young assistant manager was very kind and kept the luggage in his own room. Since we were leaving early morning, they also offered to have the breakfast buffet ready earlier for us.

We can highly recommend this motel.

Stayed for 3 nights, first impressions when walking in we're clean and fresh. Good price for what it is. So much to do in rotarua that you don't spend ages in the apartment. Good layout, beds comfortable, seating ok, will recommend to friends and family.

Mark, the proprietor at Accolade Lodge, and his wife are extremely friendly and kind. Mark speaks both English and Chinese and knows the area well. He offers a list of top 10 paid and top 10 free events in the area, and his guidance on what to do can be very valuable. The room is simple but a good value. Beds are soft and comfortable. Walking distance to several attractions. The breakfast includes yogurt, cold cereal, fruit, and toast--simple, but breakfast is included. There is also a guest laundry, a big plus.

Had we known how interesting Rotorua would be, we would have planned on staying at least two nights instead of just one, and would have gladly stayed at Accolade. We hope to come back.

Room Tip: There are two levels, upstairs and downstairs. Upstairs where we stayed is probably quieter because...

We booked the 2 bedroom apartment for our group consisting of 4 adults 1 toddler and 1 infant.

The rooms were same configuration with a queen and a single plus ensuite. This worked perfectly for us as each family could use their own bathroom and not have to wait for showers. With the entrance sliding glass door into the shared living room meant there was plenty of space for everyone and an area for the adults to socialize whilst the children slept.

Located on the bottom floor it was very convenient to have parking right at the front door. We were offered lots of advice of places and things to see and do and also given discount vouchers.

Appreciate that cot was ready for use in the bedroom. Location is very close to shops so you can walk out or drive.

The room was clean and the beds are confortable for an overnight stay for a quick visit to Rotorua. Don't expect to cook in the room (portable electrical heating stove). The host was the highlight of the place, Liam was great and extremely helpful.

A very welcoming host! Even walk me down outside my unit. A very nice place to stay for a very reasonable price which also includes breakfast & FREE WIFI. When I'm back in Rotorua will definately stay here again.
