Birchwood Spa Motel
Ranked #85 of 92 Hotels in Rotorua
Reviewed 8 January 2013

clean rooms unlimited wireless won it for me. the promise of a spa room didnt affect my decision to book (the whole rotorua spa obsession is amusing) the owners are lovely and nice homely little touches are appreciated having a toaster and microwave a godsend (food in town is expensive,bland and uninspiring)

Room Tip: bit far out of the city centre if you dont have your own transport

The motel was super close to all the parks we wanted to visit. The rooms themselves looked a bit old but otherwise spacious and clean. What stood out was the friendliness and service of the staff. The motel had a huge collection of DVDs, so we took advantage of that and also provided unlimited free Wi-Fi (other places advertise free Wi-Fi but it's often limited and you end up paying for more).

Lovely deep spa, firm bed, free wifi and our room had free breakfast. While other reviewers have noted that this place is located on the main road, 90% of motels in Rotorua are so you will get traffic noise everywhere. For us it was not so noticeable. There is also an on-site guest laundry. Great place to stay and the owners were really helpful. Free parking onsite

Booked 2 of the townhouses for our netball team. Booking via email was fast and friendly. Houses were very clean and tidy. Each house also has an internal garage which came in handy. The grounds were kept nice and tidy. Hosts were friendly and left us to it. Only downfall was the spa - separate spa cabin is to be shared by the 4 houses and it was quite small. On top of that, we were given a half hour time limit per house and had to retrieve the key every time we wanted to use it. Overall, a lovely stay though.

Just spent two nights at the Birchwood Spa. Very clean, comfortable studio apartment with private spa pool in courtyard. Romantic package with sparkling wine and chocolates, even though I was traveling alone! Nice touches like a thank you card and jug of fresh milk. Kevin and Connie very helpful in suggesting places to eat. It is a short drive into town, but very close to the geyser which can be seen from the room.

Room Tip: I had a studio but a colleague had a one-bedroom apartment which was very spacious.

We spent a night at the Birchwood Spa Motel after a dusty and hectic three days competing at a sporting event in Rotorua. This place was a haven for us, and the spa bath was a very welcome sight!

The units are an excellent size, and the spa bath outside in the little courtyard was wonderful. I would recommend getting a ground floor unit with the spa bath outside ... so lovely and relaxing!

The hosts are very friendly and chatty, and nothing is too much trouble. The units are clean and secure.

I will definitely stay here again. Free broadband, too!

Room Tip: Ground floor until with spa bath outside - blissful!
