“A homely place to stay”
Reviewed 4 February 2014

Lovely quite place, away from main road, easy parking, short walk to main shopping mall. Very friendly owners, with great sense of english humour. Room clean and comfortable. Looking forward to our next stay at Easter.

Hi "Davros 49"
Love the title, if you feel at home we couldn't ask for more particularly as it's our home too. Looking forward to seeing you both at Easter.

Stayed here on our travels through the North Island. The rooms are clean, warm and the owners are very helpful. The hotel is close to a supermarket and food court and also a short walk from Rotorua's famous "eat street"

Be sure to check out the luge and some of the mineral baths as well as the geothermal parks. Rotorua is a great place to visit and I would stay at Six on Union again.

Also, quiet sleeping. Room had balcony and we were off of the main street which made it even more quiet. We stirred away from the spa as it looked like it hadn't been used, but it was summer time. We'd stay there again.

Hello Jeli5559
It's great that you enjoyed our quiet location, a good nights sleep sets you up for the next days adventures. It was lovely meeting & chatting with yourselves & your mum. As we always say, the best recommendation is that you would stay again & we sincerely hope you do.

Many thanks

If you ever go to Rotorua check this place out, the rooms are fantastic and great value for money, it's a British husband and wife owned place and they were very helpful. There are many hotel/motels to choose from but you will have to go far to beat this place. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

Hi Chris
It's lovely when someone who tells you in person they have enjoyed their stay, actually takes the time to write a review too. Possibly the tidiest guest we've ever had :-) You were a pleasure to meet and have a chat with.
See you next time

Great price in comparison with accommodation elsewhere in N Z , and room had everything we needed and was very comfortable. Location was great, and owners provided us with good information which helped us make the most of our two days.

Only slight gripe was that wifi was very expensive when compared with other accommodation....and we could only connect outside our room on the top landing. Recommend you check reception in your room before buying.

We would certainly stay here if we visit Rotorua again - thanks for a super stay.

Hi Della

Thank you so much for taking the time to write your review, it is much appreciated. We do try to make our guests stay as comfortable as possible and are happy to assist wherever we can. Thank you for mentioning our great location, we are so close to town but well away from noisy main roads.
We guess the fact that "Great price in comparison with accommodation elsewhere in N Z " offsets the "free wifi" which is factored in to some others prices. Our complimentary wifi in MGB is usually sufficient for email, web-browsing,etc and after that we sell Zenbu vouchers at a reduced rate.
The best recommendation, you'd stay with us again.
Many thanks

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.
