Reviewed 13 October 2012

Clean and warm hotel, close to the centre of Rotorua. The owners offered and booked a Maori cultural evening for us, which we enjoyed. The room was clean and serviced daily. There is a spa pool onsite.

We had a wonderful stay here. So much so that we added a third night. We had plenty of room for the three of us, the rooms were clean and well appointed and WARM!! Sounds funny, but we were traveling in the winter and we were very cold in most of our accommodations. Traveling with our grown daughter, we usually had 2 rooms and often there was just one heater and/or one heated mattress pad. Here, each room had a heater and all beds had electric heated mattress pads. Our stay was extremely comfortable and the price was reasonable. The hosts were very friendly and attentive. We would definitely return!!

Would not say a bad word about six on union. We stayed 4 nights here and were warmly welcomed by Lisa who made us feel very welcome and was very informative about local attractions and things to do during our time in rotorua but in no way pushy at all. Lisa was nothing but lovely and took fantastic care of us and if you have the time defiantly grab her for a chat. The accomadation itself is very well positioned close to the centre and we strongly reccomeded a visit to the night market on Thursday night if your in town (it's about a 7min walk tops and you can pick up something tasty for dinner). Clean, tidy, well laid out, well serviced with all the facilities you could possibly require. I know this is not the norm but for what you get the six on union is great value for money (really really great haha) and it almost felt like we was robbing the place when we checked out. Would have happily paid more and will most defiantly be staying again next time were in New Zealand and will recommend to all. Thanks Lisa for a fantastic stay and for being a lovely host and we look forward to seeing you again soon. Take care and keep up the good work.

Hi Dan & Sarah

Wow, thank you so much for your review. It was great to meet you both & hear of your adventures in Rotorua each day, you certainly packed a lot in. I'm sure I'll see you both again, I don't think you've had your fill of this beautiful country. I promise we won't charge you more despite your comment :) Also thank you for the gift, totally unnecessary but greatly appreciated.

Take care & good luck with your plans

The motel is easy to be found in Rotorua, it provides large rooms with balconies. the welcome could be warmer and is definitely not what we experienced in any other accomodation in 3 weeks in New Zealand. It seemed that the owner wanted to push us in certain events. The facilities and furniture are ok but a little bit dated. The lights on the balconies cannot be turned off by the guests, so we had to remove the bulbs on our own to keep away flies... Cleanliness could be better. The car park and the nearby supermarkets make the stay comfortable.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. The outside lights which are on a timer & go off at 9pm are there to assist guests who want to be around the motel to use the laundry, spa or barbeque. Thank you for commenting on our convenient location.

This is a fantastic motel. I have stayed here on many occasions and now refuse to stay anywhere else in Rotorua. The rooms are extremely spacious and have all the mod cons. Very clean. The motel is off the main road so its very quiet and with the comfy beds to boot, your guaranteed a good nights rest. The owners and their sense of humor is from the North of England! They are very friendly and can help you get discounts on activities around Rotorua. I'd recommend this motel to anyone. Parking is around the back for all those who want to hide sports equipment.

The proprietors were helpful, the accomodations decent and the location good. However, you cannot the sulfur smell anywhere in town except at the redwood park.

I just had a wonderful experience with "Six On Union" in Rotorua - in fact it was far more than I expected. The room was clean, brightly fuenished, and complete with ALL the amenities. But even better than that, the operators were outstanding. Both professional and friendly, they went to every length to be sure my stay was comfortable, including an informative guide about town, where to shop, eat, sightsee etc. And as a bonus, Tony (who has impeccable taste in music) and his wife Lisa helped me problem-solve my laptop computer. I will definitely return.

Room Tip: Great views facing south.
