RotoVegas Motel of Rotorua
Ranked #11 of 91 Hotels in Rotorua
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 13 October 2013

Great hotel, very friendly & helpful staff & owners. Good place for families, cute rooms, late back & pleasant with heated outdoor pool & picnic/bbq area. Handy to a great takeaway & liquor king also if you want to eat in your room!

This is by a busy road area, with lots of motels and it takes about 10-15 minutes to walk downtown to the pleasant lakeside area with lots of green.

Room Tip: Studios were great for couples or singles, economical.

Had a 2 night stay for a conference as solo occupant. Very comfortable unit, spa bath was a plus. Only negative comment have is that the wall behind the toilet door needed a clean as did the corner of the floor there. I can see how its missed as its not visible if the door is open.

Kia Ora Stan,

Thank you for your review I am glad your overall stay with us was great and you loved relaxing in the private spa pool after your day at the conference. Since your review (as our reviews regarding cleaning is normally extremely high) I went and checked the unit to see the marks on the wall you mentioned and to my horror the shower must have a leak! It is a water stain coming into the toilet from the shower which has also damaged the floor below. I will get our maintenance man (aka Bryce) onto this asap. I am extremely sorry your unit was not up to the high standard it normally should be.

Kind regards Natalee

It's a nice apartment with good service, there's a big spa bath in my room, we enjoy a really good time in this hotel. The kitchen facilities are convenient to use and it's really easy to go downtown. The countdown market is just 5 min by foot. anyway this is a brilliant motel I've ever stayed.

Room Tip: choose room with spa

Just completed a 4 night stay in a 2 bedroom unit with my wife and two teenage children. The unit was very comfortable, and was perfect for what we needed. The RotoVegas is not luxurious but it does provide the essentials and is certainly neat, tidy and more than adequate for our needs. Staying at Rotorua we did not plan to spend much of our time at the hotel, it was basically used as a place to sleep and unwind at the end of a busy day of sightseeing. The amenities were more than sufficient, and we were very happy with our choice of accommodation. The other bonus of this hotel is that it is only a short 10 minute stroll into the town centre with its abundance of restaurants and shopping.
The main features of the hotel included free Wi-Fi, (a prerequisite when travelling with teenagers), two high quality flat screen tv's with Sky Channel, great shower, hot tub and thermal heated pool. To top it off the proprietor Bryce was very friendly and helpful and would go out of his way to help without being intrusive. Would thoroughly recommend this hotel as an affordable and conveniently located option.

Kia Ora Graham,

Thank you for your lovely review, RotoVegas Motel is known for it's "Great rates, Great rooms and Great recommendations (so thanks again).
Glad the teenagers like our facilities, FREE Wifi, DVD library and outside heated pool and two flat screens LCD TVs is a must in all of our two bedroom spa units.

We do hear a lot that families love to come and stay with us due to our service, location and can sleeps up to six guests for less than NZ$250 - what a deal

One of the most cleanest motels I've ever stayed in, everything spotless. Great kitchen facilities and our own personal spa which was was very luxurious. Receptionist was amazing and enthusiastic every time we spoke to her and the bed was comfy. Being in the unit close to the road my husband had trouble sleeping with the road noise and we could hear a family in the unit above us but I slept soundly despite this. Lovely hot swimming pool which I'll be sure to use next time we stay, which will hopefully be November. Great for a couple and families. Walking distance to everything!

Room Tip: while the front room does have its own personal spa, be prepared for slight road noise :)

Thank you for the lovely review. We are extremely happy that you enjoyed your stay with us. I will be sure to pass your feedback on to Rachel our Head Housekeeper regarding the "cleanest motel you have stayed at" - that is wonderful news.

Our private spa and outside heated pool is a winner every-time, especially with families as the kids can spend hours in there (FREE entertainment)!

We do hope to see you in Nov.

Went to enquire about a room without a booking and the lady at the front desk was super enthusiastic ad really helpful. Even though they were fully booked she didn't hesitate to help us find somewhere else.
Would definitely stay there if we got the chance again.

Well - thank you ever so much for your lovely review about "not staying with us". We like to ensure we give 'potential' guests the same service as booked guests. We are more than happy to recommend a couple of other great service providers (Motels) in Rotorua, when we are full and we know they do the same.

Can not wait to host you again, please call us on 0800 249 249 and book direct to ensure we give you the best option for your budget and group size.

We stayed here for our visit to Rotorua and couldn't have been happier. The owners were very friendly and extremely helpful. Our room was upgraded free of charge without us even asking such that we had our own spa. The Room was very spacious and the bedroom was separate. Everywhere was spotless. Thank you very much.
