The weekend just passed was our second stay and again a very enjoyable stay. We came to Rotorua to watch Soccer on the Sat' and Sun'. After the Sat' game we enjoyed a lovely spar pool soak. We went mountain biking on the Mon' am and although we didn't need showering afterwards, the offer of one was there from the hosts and was very much appreciated. Very tidy rooms excellent hosts

Pleased to hear you all enjoyed your weekend nad look forward to seeing you all again sometime. We are only to happy to allow our Guests to come back and shower after biking if we aren't too busy and the rooms aren't required that night. Nothing worse than having to travel home especially if you have got Wet & Muddy.

We stayed in a stuido and loved the spa bath!! The room was spacious and the kitchen clean and lovely, plates, cutlery etc all in good order. Loved the walk in shower too, it was all easy. The staff were very friendly and helpful and even booked our dinner for us up at the Skyline restaurant!

Great night and will definitely be back :-)

Room Tip: Go for the units on the second level.

We stayed here in the weekend and found the place wonderful! We've stayed in quite a few places and am the first to admit i'm rather fussy when staying away from home. The place was clean, tidy and modern. The owners were so lovely and very helpful when we arrived. They went the extra mile and we will be recommending the motel to friends and family.

I spent so long looking through websites for accommodation in Rotorua for a family weekend away. When searching One Bedroom, Spa Pool this was the first to pop up. Its extremely hard to find something clean and modern that sleeps more than 2 kids, 2 adults. The place was perfect for us, with a separate bedroom for me and hubby and single in the lounge with a double sofa bed. Room was serviced first morning, lots of fresh towels, must have with 3 kids!

Room Tip: Room 8, great for families~!

Thankyou Tasha for your comments. And glad to hear you all enjoyed your stay. Pity the weather wasn't better for you although you all seemed to find plenty to do - One of the many advantages of Holidaying in Rotorua as all year round there is always plenty to see and do whatever the Weather!!!

We spent one night at Geneva Motor Lodge and found the studio very comfortable and thoroughly enjoyed the spa bath for a relaxing time after our 4 hours of travel in the car. The hosts were very obliging and helpful in directing us to restaurants for dinner that night.

Room Tip: rooms on the ground floor would be more suitable for the elderly,especially when suitcases need to b...

Just spent a night 30/05 in a 1 bedroom apartment. peeling paper in bathroom, no heater in bedroom, worn fittings in bathroom paint come off metal shower head and towel rail to expose metal underneath. My 6yr old could pee faster then the shower could run. no couch in the lounge although it shows one on their online website.
Yes we had a spa bath in our room - if the jets worked it would have been better.
This was a last min booking in the evening for a mum and 2 small kids so why would you put us in a upstairs room when we arrived at 8.30pm and not offer to help with the bags?
look it was a nice touch that they had turned on the heater (very noisy - had to turn it off overnight) and the electric blankets and the linen was clean- but 4 star no way!. Maybe the rest of the place is ok - Don't stay in room 14 - it's a 2 star at best. 80's peach décor - yellow microwave, peeling paint, broken air vent and fixtures in bathroom.

Room Tip: Don't stay in room 14

While some of your comments were valid ie: chipped paint -there were a couple of places in the bathroom that need repairing, fittings that don't look that great - But we are in Rotorua and with the Sulphur it is always hard to keep some things looking like they have just come out of the packet!!
And yes there is a very minor bit broken on the Air Vent. These are all things that are on our Maintenance list of things to do now we are not so busy.
But Please If you feel you need to find fault with everything please only comment on the things that aren't up to scratch and give the true facts.
1: Being put in an Upstairs room with young kids was beyond our control at that hour of the night as all our downstairs rooms were booked and your husband did ask for a 1 brm unit with Spa Bath.Sorry I did not offer to carry your bags but as you had made no attempt to get anything out of your car I thought perhaps as you were only stopping over (Because you were too tired to drive on f urther)you had decided to not bring any luggage in.
2: There was no problem with the Shower Pressure(which is set at 350kpa's which is reccommended by Environmental groups to help reduce our Footprint on the Environment.) or the Bath Jets both are working perfectly ok and have had no complaints from the guests that have been in the room since.
3: The colourScheme ? not sure where you get the Peachy colours as our walls are painted in a Sisal Colour with Blue & Silver Furnishings, Green/Blue Carpet & Cream Drapes.
4: Yes the Heater maybe a little noisy but it is a Fan Heater and with Electric Blankets on all beds most people don't need the Heater going all night.
5: And our web site does not show a Couch in the room you had booked, Although it does have 2 Arm chairs.
Maybe we just put this down to a Stressed Mum with two very tired children after a long drive

Had a wonderful stay at this beautifully presented motel with an awesome private spa. On booking in received a welcome back and then were shown to our very spacious unit. There was a great kitchen unit with all you would need to be self contained and a lovely bathroom . The living area contained a couch , table and chairs and 42 inch flat screen with sky.
We will definitely be back.
An added bonus is the Urbano Restaurant just down the street.

Room Tip: The private spa is a must.
