“Everything you need for your trip to Rotorua”
Reviewed 25 December 2013 via mobile

Made very welcome right from the start. Good local information offered in a pleasant manner. All facilities you need are there in a spacious room. The location with a supermarket less than 5 minutes walk away and the main road into town within easy walking distance. Excellent.
The building may be older but that does not mean the welcome is old fashioned.

Stayed November 2013, travelled as a couple

This was a great way to finish our NZ holiday. The hosts are lovely, patient folk who helped us squeeze the last bit of fun out of our stay and wrap up our final transportation plans. We had everything we needed and felt welcome from the start.

We stayed there because it was recommended in Lonely Planet. The owner helped us get checked in and gave us a good overall "sense" of the city. He even knocked on our door an hour later to tell us about a combination Maori entertainment/dinner special a few blocks away. The location across from the mall/restaurants was great but the room was just OK. A little bit cold even with the heater and a rather old building. We stayed there in the off season (October) but found that there were other hotels, newer and including breakfast for the same price or not much more.

Hello Sharon
Thank you for your review. It's great that you appreciated the information you were given at check-in and later when a "Special" had just come to our attention. We like to assist our guests to get the most out of their stay in Rotorua. Yes, our location is great isn't it? Well away from the main road but so close to shops & restaurants. The motel was built in the 70's so is not a shiny new corporate hotel but being an older style property tends to have larger rooms with a good size kitchen, not just a shelf with a kettle.

Kind regards
Tony & Lisa

Don't expect much and you will be pleasantly surprised. The hotel is around the corner from the mall so walking distance to restaurants and bars etc. good rooms comfy beds and a good price. The spa was nice too. Not as easy to find but there again neither are diamonds.

The location is good. Just few blocks from main street of Rotorua and the supermarket is across the street, quite convenient! The room got a kitchenette and the bed is big and comfortable. Great stay!

Thank you for taking the time to review our motel. We're happy that you enjoyed your stay. It's great having the supermarket and town centre so close but being away from the busy main road.

We look forward to seeing you again.

As a new New Zealander this was my first visit to Rotorua, I found Six on Union in the Lonely Planet & it said the owners are from Yorkshire so being from Sheffield I thought I'd try there. Great rooms & very clean, being on a budget we used the kitchen a lot & there's everything you need to prepare your own meals and the supermarket is just across the road. Tony & Lisa made us welcome, gave us great advise on the local attractions and a list of FREE things to do and see, a real bonus. We will definitely be back.

Room Tip: we stayed in Room 6 it has a balcony. Great to catch the last of the sun in the evening with a glas...

over the last six years I travelled to rotorua for several long and short term stays.
the six on union cant be beaten on value for money, it is located in a little side street and you don't hear all the traffic from fenton street. everything in the city is basically in walking distance three major supermarkets , just a stone throw away and restaurants you can't even count them there is that many.
the rooms got a kitchenette which was great for me since I prefer my own cooking when I am away for a few weeks at the time.
the owners are always there for you and keep the property nice and clean.
the beds are big and comfortable the bathroom spotless clean and tv got good reception. what else can you ask for.
I tried some of the other hotels in rotorua but since I discovered six on union, I always return when I go over there.
