“Great place! Great hosts!”
Reviewed 10 March 2014 via mobile

Sport of kings is a great motel. My boyfriend and I stayed there for four nights and it was a very good stay.
We relaxed and had a great time at the hot swimming pool.
Pete and Tristen are great hosts. They helped us with everything and gave us great tips from where to go and the best time to go.
We will return for sure. We loved it.

Stayed March 2014, travelled as a couple

Thanks for letting us stay at your fabulous facilities. The hospitality shown to the group was tremendous. The facilities were first class and location ideal. The heated swimming pool and private spas was ideal after a day on the bikes. We will definitely recommend your motel to others in the future.

Very helpful hosts who helped to organise our evening, and the room itself was very clean and comfortable. We only had one night in Rotorua but would love to return, and we would certainly use this motel again.

Unbelievably accommodating hosts. Tristen, Pete, and Micayla make you feel right at home. Pete went out of his way to show us Rotorua, even picking us up to show us glow worms at night. The rooms were comfortable and clean and the in room hot tub was awesome! I'd come back to New Zealand just to stay here again and learn more about Rotorua from Pete.

The motel is fine, and has all the amenities you'd expect in a Rotorua motel, including in-unit spa and a heated pool. What we found really outstanding about the facility was the assistance we got from the owner/operators. We weren't sure exactly what we wanted to do in Rotorua, and our host was incredibly helpful, even calling to make our reservations and arranging pickups for us while we waited. She also had discounts and coupons for three of the four attractions we booked, so we saved time and money. Our vacation in Rotorua was much more fun and less stressful because of the exceptional assistance and hospitality we received.

We had a welcoming reception when we arrived at this family run hotel. We had our WIFI code delivered to our suite by their 2 year old 'hostess in training' Mikahyla. They also brought us a DVR and movies to watch. The room was clean and comfortable and the use of the private hot tub was a bonus. We would have enjoyed staying there longer as we didn't have time to use the heated pool and BBQ area. It was nice that it was off the main strip which offered us a quiet stay. The smell of the sulphur at night took getting used to but the hotel was a perfect stop off point to see the most unique sights of New Zealand.
