“Great place to stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 November 2013

We spent three nights here. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. Helped us a lot with planning our time in the Rotorua area as well as making reservations for us. As stated in a previous review, the only small (very small) negatives are that it is a bit of a walk to the city centre and parking was tight. We would definitely recommend the Silver Fern.

Stayed November 2013, travelled with family

Our stopover stay in Rotorua was made real comfy at Silver Fern by Allan and Shirley who were the perfect hosts..... Would definitely recommend this place to anyone visiting Rotorua... The rooms were clean and well kept and the location was great too.

We booked this motel on the basis of previous excellent reviews and were not disappointed. Our room was large and very well equipped including our own spa bath in a very spacious bathroom. The bed was very comfortable. Allan and Shirley, the owners were away while we were there but Carol and her husband who were looking after things were very friendly and helpful in advising on places to visit. Overall, we loved Rotorua and thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Silver Fern.

Room Tip: Check out the reviews of previous guests before you book.

Spent 3 days at the Silver Fern and it was perfect! The room was large, clean, and well appointed.

The owners were very friendly and helpful. We consulted Allan at the front desk on best things to do. His suggestions turned out very well and we really enjoyed Rotorua in part because of this. He even loaned me a screwdriver to fix a loose part on the rental :)

They definitely have earned their high ranking - highly recommended!

Very stylish and smart apartment with large very comfortable bed, and an enormous spa bath. Plenty of space in both the main room and bathroom. Good TV. Nice toiletries and good selection of tea and coffee. Welcoming helpful host. The only (minor) negatives we're no aircon, a bit of road noise, but not a problem, limited self catering (just a microwave), limited car parking space (some we're parked on a grassed area) and too far from the centre of Rotorua to walk. Would happily stay there again.

I selected this venue for our 40th wedding anniversary Rotorua weekend based on other reviews and it matched the positive comments and met my expectations. The owners were very friendly, provided an excellent breakfast and the latish check out meant a relaxed Sunday morning watching the All Blacks scrape past the French! Recommend paying a bit extra for the larger and comfortable executive studio for the longer stays - ask for the one at the far end of the block upstairs if you want privacy and a quiet time.

Room Tip: Recommend paying a bit extra for the larger and comfortable executive studio for the longer stays...

There is a lot to like about this refurbished Rotorua motel. Rooms are clean, comfortable and well-equipped. Only drawback is that it is not well insulated for sound so we were subjected to our neighbours noises and because the windows are not double-glazed we heard the trucks rumbling by - it is on the main road between Rotorua and Taupo. And we were in a room well back from the road. Can't fault the stand-in managers who were friendly welcoming and helpful. Great spa bath but I suspect using the shower above it would be a little tricky for the less agile..
