thank you Paul and Sue for the two great nights we had staying at your motel and for all your help with maps and advice. I have already recommended you to my friends who plan to stay in Rororua Friday week and have told them they'd be crazy to stay anywhere else. When we come back to NZ, we will definately be staying with you again!
Look forward to seeing you both again,
Kerry & Peter Clark

We had a wonderful time at Rotorua staying at Six-On-Union. Very clean room(s), super nice people, so friendly and relaxed. Although we stayed there only for one night, we would love to come back and spend several days there.

Second time I've stayed at this hotel, came back because the rooms are great and the service is wonderful.

The location is convenient, easy access to the main attractions and just over the road from a supemarket.

The owner is great; he carried the bags to & from our room for us and gave us a glass of wine each on arrival - very nice welcome! :-) Very helpful with maps and tour booking information.

There is a small pool which we didn't use, but it looked clean and appealing. The room was clean and tidy, and the beds are comfortable. Fridge and kitchenette/utensils all clean and what we needed.

Car parking is limited and spaces are narrow, but there is plenty of safe on street parking on the quiet road outside.

Stayed here in Feb/10. Was very happy with ALL aspects of this hotel. Location is a 5 minute walk from great restaurants, bus depots and downtown Rotorua. Our room was clean, quiet, and well kept. Paul and Sue, the owners went beyond what we had expected by arranging a tour,and explaining where to go and the sights to see. Kitchen was well equipped, bathroom was spotless, and the balcony was a perfect refuge with a cupof tea after a long day of activities. Had an excellent stay in Rotorua, partly because of this hotel.

We stayed here for 1 night after staying in many motels around NZ. Compared to the others in terms of service, Six on Union can rest assured that they certainly offer great service with a smile. Approachable and friendly staff. In terms of other good points for the accommodation, it is well located, nicely decorated on the outside with hanging baskets, parking spaces and they have a swimming pool, a feature that none of the other motels we stayed in had. Where they fall down however is the room. It is a very basic room with no spare pillows or blankets, no air condition/modern heater, details that most of the motels we stayed in provided and set the standard for.

We would stay here again but only if they refurbished a bit. Otherwise it is good value for money.

We spent 3 nights at "Six" and really liked it. While there is no WOW factor with the motel it provided everything we needed. It is on a quiet residential street, just a few minutes walk from a large supermarket and only a few minutes more from the town's restaurants, internet cafe etc. You can easily stroll down to the lake from the motel without too much effort. The room was of a decent size, well equipped and being upstairs we had a balcony to sit out on and enjoy a relaxing glass of wine after enjoying a soak in the motel's spa pool. Our hosts, Sue and Paul were extremely friendly and very helpful. Suggestions on where to visit in the area and where to eat came thick and fast. All were worth doing and they can arrange entertainment packages that can save you money. One tip on finding the motel. If you are coming down the 30A you should arrive at a major intersection at Fenton St. Whichever way the sign points for the City Centre, do the opposite. Take the first right and third left (the car park for the supermarket will be on your right).

We would definitely visit again.

We stayed for 2 nights late December 2009. The hosts are very friendly and hospitable. The rooms however are a bit old. The bathroom was a bit cramped and the shower was the worst during our 4 weeks in New Zealand.
