Similar to other reviews, we also stayed at the Sport of Kings motel for two nights in between rugby matches. We arrived early but were given access to our room with no problems and were greeted by the owners who were really friendly and helpful and made a great restaurant recommendation (forgotten the name but it's worth asking as it was perfect for meat lovers and they even gave us a buy-one-get-one-free voucher on the main course).
Our room (a "deluxe studio") was really spacious, clean and a big shower in the bathroom. The location was great for our activities - Whakarewarewa and Te Puia and skydiving - and the restaurants were all just minutes by car.
We didn't get a chance to use either the pool or spa but they looked well kept too.
Would definitely recommend Sport of Kings as a great place to stay - and while you're there, check out the Polynesian Spa which was lovely for a relaxing evening activity.
