Cleveland Thermal Motel

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 24 September 2013

The location is good with a brisk walk into town and the mud pool park on the way we were able to leave our car at Cleveland and get a bit of exercise, The natural spring heated pool was great to have a swim in and very unusual for us from OZ as it was middle of winter and about 2"C. The rooms were old and worn out but clean and tidy, there was reno's started so I'm guessing by now, well on there way to a much needed upgrade.
The staff were very friendly and organised excursions at a minutes notice for my family and lots of helpful advice about there town.
Thanks for a comfortable stay and looking forward to seeing the renovations next time in NZ.

Regards
Chris & family

Glad you enjoyed our mineral pools; this is usually kept at a temperature between 38C to 40C. Since your stay in July this year, we have completed re-furbishing all the 2-bedroom units and are half way through the 1-bedroom units. These will be completed by end November. Guests who have stayed in the re-furbished units are loving the colours we have chosen. Thank you.

Location is good, the room is clean and tidy.
Inn keeper 'Bridge' is very nice and friendly, always ready to give a hand. He has given us appropriate advice in choosing varieties of interests. Canopy Tour was exciting yet enjoyable. The Hamurana Spring he recommended is excellent.
The lady who made our room is very mother liked, love to talk to her.
I would recommend Cleveland Motel to friend of mine.

Yes, it is obvious our housekeeping team love what they do. Glad to know you made it out to the Hamurana Spring; it is so beautiful to feel the "chi" in the area. Thank you for your feedback.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Cleveland Motel. We were taking part in the Round the Lake cycling event and found the Cleveland to be in a fantastic central location with awesome hosts. Our unit was spacious and clean and the beds were comfy, so no complaints from us!!! We would choose to stay again at this motel especially for the price!!!

Hope you are in training for this year's "Round the Lake". If you liked the Cleveland when you stayed the last time, then, you will love what we have done since. All the roadworks are complete and we now have a fabulous cycle track right by our front entrance. Thanks for your kind words.

We are just back from an around the world trip where we stayed in 69 different places over 7 months. This included a three night stay at the Cleveland Motel in March 2013. The owner was very nice, and I believe that we actually got a room upgrade for the same price. The two trampolines were fun for my kids and we all enjoyed a dip in the pool. :-)

However, the facilities were old and I thought the beds were among the least comfortable on our whole trip. The mattresses were extremely soft and the curtains could have been darker (our neighbors had their front light on and our pale yellow curtains didn't block the light sufficiently). Also, the hot pools, which look so inviting in the photos, were also run down. One didn't have any water and the other was just okay.

I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Cleveland IF you stay in one of their remodeled rooms.

Thank you for your review. We have refurbished 14 of the 18 units that needed a makeover. Your feedback about the curtains has been noted and we have started replacing them with a blackout backing. Mattresses are also being upgraded.

My family and i had pre booked our rooms at the cleveland motel 3 months earlier through our sister chanel robinson and kenji porter.We came to Rotorua to do the tough guy tough gal challenge on saturday 18th august 2013 .we booked the biggest unit that was there number 5 and a small unit for my sister and brother which was close to the office The large room we stayed in was big enough for the 8 of us.The carpet in our room was a bit worn but i was told the room was soon to be renovated, a bigger t.v in our room would have been great as there were 10 of us trying to watch the game saturday night but the screen was too small for the ten of my whanau members trying to watch it .besides that we all really enjoyed our stay.The pool was awesome and it really made our day having to come back from our 6km run then jump in the pool.To the motel manager thank you so much for letting us leave at 12pm which we should have left by 10am but we were running a bit late.The location we were at is close to the bakery,garage,wholesale vege shop and town is just a 3min drive.Loved the weekend stay and my whanau are all looking forward to coming back next year to do the tough guy tough gal challenge for 2014.Thank you to the motel manager hope our rooms were up to standard when we left on sunday.we did make sure all blankets and sheets were stripped off the beds and all rubbish put into recycling bins.great stay and will see you next year 2014.

Thank you for your detailed review; much appreciated. The unit you stayed in has now been repainted, a new bathroom is being installed, then new carpet and yes, we are putting a bigger tv. This will be 42" with all the bells and whistles including wifi (free of course). Look forward to seeing you next year or earlier.

Naturally we are delighted you enjoyed your recent stay at the Cleveland. Most families prefer the 2-bedroom apartments as they are over 50 square metres in size, plus these have just been refurbished. Tony will be very happy to hear you liked the pool as he takes great pride in keeping it clean. Thank you for your feedback.
