“Wonderful experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 February 2014

We stayed here at the end of a three week trip through Australia and New Zealand. The Silver Fern is in a good location and easy to locate. Allan and Shirley were friendly and helpful. The two bedroom unit was great for our needs, since my husband and I were traveling with my father. Everything was clean and comfortable.

My partner and I stayed one night in Rotorua at this hotel. Room was very clean, spacious, modern and the bed was huge! We loved the high quality toiletries and the clean robes hanging ready for us after using them.

The spa bath was amazing too, but I worry about the water consumption, maybe it's the Aussie drought worries as NZ seems to have no shortage of rain...

Recommended.

We really enjoyed staying at this motel for our one night stopover in Rotorua. The staff were friendly and welcoming and the room was a good size with front and back access. It was spotlessly clean and very quiet. Silver Fern is in a good location on the main road into Rotorua and it's a pleasant 15 minute walk to the centre, although there are nearer restaurants and supermarket if required.

Our stay at the Silver Fern was my first night away from our little boy in just about a year. Being on one income now we like to make sure that we're getting good value for money - especially if we're splashing out a little! The Silver Fern delivered. We had a king size bed which was lovely and comfy, a massive spa bath which was wonderful to relax in and enjoyed a complementary DVD from reception to play in our room. The staff were wonderful and friendly, the room spacious, clean and comfortable and just a little bit luxurious which is what we were after. The hotel was full the night we stayed, but our room (room 2) didn't get any road noise or noise from other guests, except: the people above us decided to have a shower at around 11pm, and the pipes were quite noisy, but we were still watching our DVD so it didn't worry us too much. We would have loved to stay for another night - we were awake at 7am as usual (typical!), but the later than average check-out time of 11am meant we could take our time having breakfast. It's a little way from the main part of town, but would only be a 10 min walk, so kind of a nice distance if you like to be out of the fray. Overall a great place to stay, and I recommend it.

Stayed here for two nights during a fab road trip of NZ in January.

Had a warm welcome on arrival and was given loads of info on stuff to do in Rotorua and the surrounding area - there is a lot to do!

We were then shown to our room. We had booked a studio room and to be honest I thought we had been shown to the wrong room at first as it was a big room and had a huge bathroom with a whirlpool bath and huge wet room style shower! But it turns out ALL the rooms have this! :-)

We were in room 1 next to reception which along with room 2 had a separate parking space you could use that is accessible from the next road and then reached through the rooms patio doors. Made loading and unloading luggage easier.

We settled into our room and went through a huge pile of leaflets we had collected from reception on things to do in the area and then went to reception and they booked the Mitai Maori Village trip for us which was a great evening out.

Other great stuff to do in the area are Wai-O-Tapu Thermal Park, Buried Village and The Whakarewarewa Maori Village.

Room Tip: The jets in the whirlpool bath automatically go off at 10pm to cut down on noise as we found out aft...

We had a couple of nights and found it clean and very comfortable. The room was spacious and the owners were very helpful with giving us advise on the best places to visit and where to find restaurants etc. One of the nights however one of the other rooms the couple had a row which spoiled the peace and quiet but was not anything to do with the hotel only inconsiderate other guests, which seemed very unusual for New Zealand, as I found everyone to be friendly and considerate. We still had a very lovely time and would recommend this place.

The Silver Fern is very well situated for nearly all things in and around the Rotoura area. The accommodation we had was clean and comfortable and included a big spa bath. Staff very helpful. recommended.
