Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 3 November 2013

after reading reviews, this was our choice all too brief just the one night. Lovely large room with spa. Excellent amenities,clean & well appointed & good WiFi !The hosts Alan & Shirley couldn't have been more helpful. There is a smell of sulphur but very subtle,& hey isn't that part of Rotorua history? 5 mins from the centre of town quiet end of Fenton St. Would definitely come back.

We stayed at the Silver Fern for two nights in mid October. From the minute we arrived in Rotorua, Allan and Shirley were wonderful. They picked us up from the bus terminal and suggested many great activities for our stay. They also encouraged us to borrow the two bicycles they have on site to explore the city, which was a terrific idea.
Our room was also lovely, spacious and well-maintained. The in room spa was a plus!

Room Tip: We had a bottom floor room. If we were to stay at the Silver Fern again we would definitely pay the...

After reading good reviews on TripAdvisor, we decided to stay at this motel during our trip to Rotorua and I am glad we made the choice. The room was spacious, clean and there was a large spa pool in our unit. As we chose the room on the second floor, it came with our own personal balcony as well. The towels were changed daily (they smell great) and the toiletries set even came with make-up removing wipes!

The owners were not around when we checked in but Clement (hope I got the name right) did an awesome job. He was extremely helpful and provided useful suggestions on how we can get around the area.

Overall, it was a fantastic experience staying here for 4 nights and I would certainly recommend this motel to all my friends.

We stayed in Silver Ferns this Labour weekend and I must say we haven't had a better stay in Rotorua yet! We go there at least once a year and always stay in different properties from small motels to bigger names/ hotel chains. The hotel has good location on main Fenton road, around 5 min drive from city centre. Very lovely look, beautiful decorated rooms. Very clean ( I am allergic to dust and have had few unpleasant stayes in Rotorua in a past). Bed is very comfortable (ohh we should have checked the label, want one for ourselves now!). There is a good choice of tea and coffee. Spa bath is huge! They also have DVD in reception for free usage. There also was a secure place to store our bikes. Oweners are very friendly, also give very good customer service.

This was a very comfortable, very friendly and pleasant hotel to stay in Rotorua, New Zealand. Our room had a very large spa and shower for two :-). Always nice for honeymooners. The location is nice and quiet and the sulphur smell was minor compared to other parts of town. The staff were so accommodating and helpful. A great place to stay.

I stayed here with my sister as part of a driving holiday of the North Island. The rooms are comfortable and spacious and modern. The hosts were lovely and went out of their way - one night dropping us off into town. They also organised a massage at short notice for me. The in-room spa bath was amazing. I would recommend staying here.

Room Tip: our room was upstairs - there was no lift so go for a ground floor room if stairs are a problem.

Silver Fern is a standard type of NZ motor inn. The rooms are comfortable and spacious, and very quiet. The stand-out for us was the customer service given to us from the owners; there wasn't a query that they couldn't help with. The in-room spa bath was enormous! Definitely consider this hotel on your next visit.
