The Sport of Kings Motel was less expensive than others we have stayed at recently in Rotorua.
Nonetheless, we found it actually cleaner and better maintained.
The staff were excellent and welcoming.
The location, and facilities were spot on.

Stayed here for one night and wish we could have stayed longer. We were travelling over NZ com Scotland and were given a choice at the information centre and chose here. We were greeted by the lovely owners and instantly felt very welcome. The facilities and cleanliness were exceptional, hot tub and swimming pool p, just delightful after long days travelling, breakfast was ordered and put in our rooms for the next morning.

First class, we all loved it

This is only the second motel that we have stayed in whilst in NZ, so we have little to compare it with. We thought the first was not bad, but this was brilliant. It is clean, spacious, modern and well equipped. We had a room with a spa bath which we loved.
We were made to feel very welcome as soon as we arrived and were given lots of handy hints about the area. Had we not already arranged our next destination, we would have liked to have stayed longer....

We had a very good stay in this motel. It was very clean and comfortable and nothing was too much trouble for the very pleasant and friendly managers. The room was very well equipped and the spas lively. The swimming pool, although small was warm and not busy at all. Overall an excellent stay and very good value for money
