“Good location”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 March 2013

We had a ground floor unit and found it to be generally clean and tidy though rather dated. The bed was lovely and comfortable. The paintwork could do with a lick of paint especially in the bathroom area. The on the wall hairdryer didnt work, but there was another hair dryer in the cupboard in the bathroom, but no plug socket for it. So had to find a socket near a mirror, but then the cord was not quite long enough to reach. Tony was helpful in booking our evening at Mitai and was a lovely chatty Yorkshire man.

Hi Jill
Thanks for taking the time to write a review and for pointing out the problem with the cord length on the hairdryer. We were not aware of this & will rectify. We're pleased to read that our location, sleep quality and help with bookings made your enjoyable.

We hope to see you again.

The location is perfect and the owners go above and beyond to make the stay wonderful. We were given super advise about what to see and do and all were excellent. Lisa and Tony are the best. The rooms areclean, nicely decorated and the location central.

Room Tip: Ask if in doubt

A well positioned motel. Owners pleasant and helpful. No meanness there with jug of milk. Room was a good size, clean and comfortable. Swimming pool small but adequate to cool off. I would stay there again.

Enjoyed everything at this little motel. Walking distance to the tourist information centre and town-centre with a supermarket across the road it's location is perfect. With helpful suggestions and friendliness from the hosts and the complementary milk it ticks all the right boxes. My room was a good size,clean and bright with a nice little balcony. Loved it. Perfect.

We're really pleased to see that you enjoyed your stay at Six on Union. Being in a residential street means we are away from the majority of the traffic noise but , as you mention, so close to town.
Many thanks for taking the time to write your review.
We hope to see you again.

From the moment we arrived until we left, we felt at home - room was clean, comfortable and all necessary facilites were readily available.
With Tony and Lisa's excellent knowledge of the area - places to eat, things to do, we just didn't have enough time to do everything!
Next time we visit Rotorua, we would stay there again,and would happily recommend to anyone else.
Thanks, Stephen & Helen

The room was perfect for our needs and the kids loved the pool. As hosts, Tony and Lisa were amazing. Nothing was too much trouble and they definitely went the extra mile! Great location - close to town and the venue where our touch tournament was held. The rooms were serviced each day which was great!
Thanks again for making our stay in Rotorua so lovely! Helen, Sandi, Adam and Cory.

Hi Guys,
Thanks for taking the time to reveiw our motel, it really helps other guests when choosing where to stay. We're glad the boys enjoyed the pool. Being close to town but off the main road is a bonus. We hope to see you next time you visit Rotorua.

Generously sized and very clean room.

Plenty of hot water in the showers.

All that you need - hob, kettle, microwave etc. + digital tv.

Convenient for the town centre. And well situated on a quiet road.

A good value-for-money place to stay, especially if you like a dour (South) Yorkshire sense of humour!
