Alan was a good host, always genial. The motel was clean and well presented, the bed comfortable. Rotorua has a sulphur stench that takes a bit of getting used to. The location of this motel is on Fenton street, which is a long drag, with multiple motels - this one is a good twenty minute walk into town. Our suite was on a corner and so the lounge seemed to be cut down in size and difficult to furnish. The bathroom was huge - dominated by a large deep spa - unfortunately the shower was over this - and difficult to get in and out of.
