RotoVegas Motel of Rotorua

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 3 September 2013

We stay in this motel in a group of four people. As we had only a day and a half to enjoy Rotorua; the staff planned some trips for us which was fantastic. We stayed in one of the double rooms, the beds are very comfortable and overall everything was well cleaned. Also the electric blankets and heater are very handy in the winter. The kitchen has all the basic staff for cooking breakfast or lunch. I definitely recommended this place weather for family or travelers with friends.

Room Tip: Get yourself one of the rooms with the spa, it was very nice be in the hot water in the winter :).

Thank you for taking the time to write such a glowing review.
RotoVegas Motel is a great motel with affordable rates especially our two bedroom spa units which can sleep up to 6 guests. Glad to hear you liked the kitchenette facilities, we have just added microwave steamers and rice cookers in all of the units (thanks to some great recommendations).

Our teams goal is to ensure your staying in Rotorua is the best one for the PRICE YOU PAY!

Stayed in one of the smaller double rooms with a spa. The place is stylie as, nice and clean and the staff are lovely, not to mention pretty affordable too, I'm already looking forward to my next visit!!

Location is great too, close to the action and across the road is a supermarket and liquor store.

Kia Ora Kori,

"RotaAwesome" we might have to borrow that word off you for our website! What a RotaAwesome review.
The studio spa funky unit which you stayed in is ideal for a single or couple traveling to Rotorua that would like to have their own private spa pool with out spending the earth! If you want a longer stay we always recommend the studio spa retro for more space at only a few dollars more. Yes we are lucky to have such a great location to the city and the supermarket for our lovely guests.

So pleased you enjoyed your time here with us and have shared your experience with other potential guests coming to Rotorua.

See you again soon.

Regards Natalee & Bryce

The RotoVegas Motel of Rotorua is a cool motel that has been decked out in retro 70's-style furniture and furnishings. We stayed as a large family group and the accommodation was more than satisfactory. We didn't use the shared facilities, but the in-room thermally-heated spa baths were a hit. The beds were clean and all the staff (right down to the housekeeper who made-up our room following our departure) were really friendly and helpful.

We would definitely stay there again when we are next in Rotorua.

Room Tip: If you don't want to carry you bags up the steps, then choose a room down stairs. This also mean...

Thanks Team,

Bryce and I delighted you liked our 70s style themed rooms. It is fun having units a little bit different to the rest in Rotorua. Next time you will have to try the outside heated pool, sauna, and bbq area!

We do pride ourselves on having a great team of staff here at RotoVegas Motel, our wonderful housekeeping team do a wonderful job seven days a week. I will forward your kind review onto our the Team.

Rotovegas Motel was the perfect spot to base ourselves in Rotorua with our two little girls. We just loved the friendly young couple who run the place. They were a great help in planning our weekend with lots of tips on where to go and what to do. We really enjoyed the retro rooms - definitely a bit of a change from the norm. They also had really comfy beds and the whole place was spotless. We spent half the weekend in the big outdoor pool and the girls loved mucking about on the trampoline. The Motel was really handy to the vege shop and big supermarket right across the road and we walked into town in 10 minutes!
We're definitely keen to come back, especially if we can get a big crew down from Auckland and book the big house at back.

Room Tip: We were a bit last minute and stayed in one of the double rooms on the ground floor. It might have b...

Rotovegas Motel is definitely one of my best experiences Ive had staying away yet. The house it self was great and comes complete with everything you need from ample sleeping space to the amazing spa room. What compliments the facilities is the hosts who were more than accommodating and willing to help with any of our needs from where to eat to great activities and also putting up with us as we weren't the easiest lot to deal with. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for somewhere to stay in rotorua. Thanks again for everything and making it a great weekend away

Kia ora Richard,

Bryce and I are so glad you and your friends had a great time staying at RotoVegas House, it really is a great house for a group of people - there are not many places in Rotorua that can sleep up to 20 guests under the same roof!

All the best with your new restaurant - we'll be sure to come over and try it sometime!

Very helpful and friendly landlords who directed us to best attractions and shared discount vouchers (enjoyed Quad biking immensely). Comfortable accommodation with great spa bath - nice and deep, geothermically heated unlike a normal jacuzzi bath. Laundry facilities with useful drying room. Electric blankets so nice and snug in the cold nights. Lots of toiletries provided.
Close to major attractions like Polynesian Spa and also town centre.

Happy to recommend.
