“Awesome Place to Stay!”
Reviewed 23 May 2011

Aywon Motel was one of the best motels I have stayed at.
We arrived quite late on the date of check in, and the owner was more than happy to wait for us to arrive.
The unit was superb. Could not have been any cleaner or tidy, and had everything we needed plus more. On the night of arrival they had the heater turned on so upon entering was nice and cosy and warm.
Having the private spa out the back was even better it definately adds that relaxing touch to your holiday.
Overall would highly reccommend this place to anyone. Great value for money. If i was visitng Rotorua again I would not hesitat to choose Aywon.

Stayed 2 nights here during easter weekend. Even though the motel was extremely busy during this time, everything was well managed. Clean, with good sized kitchen, good heater/radiator. Very homey and cosy place to stay. The easter bunny and eggs provided was a very nice touch! we loved it. One of the best and most expansively decorated and designed hotel in this price range. The square LCD TV was not big but very usable. this is the only hotel we watched any TV in NZ. Host/Hostess was welcoming but not intruding. Great value, would stay here again.

I stayed here for 4 nights and would like to have stayed longer. The accommodation was first class and had everything you needed unlike some motels. Having your own individual spa was sheer luxury and after a long day out sightseeing in the sun, it was bliss to come back to. The bed was comfortable and the owners were really helpful from giving information, booking trips to giving a lift to the bus station. It is so lovely having a family run place, much better than large chain motels and hotels. I would recommend this motel to anybody and everybody.

Room Tip: It is very near Te Puia, within walking distance.

Absolutely fantastic for young family. Comfortable rooms and private spa. You get what you pay for and it is reasonably priced. We stay here everytime we go to Rotorua and will definitely stay next time.

The Aywon Motel is a modernly furnished motel located near, but not on the main street in Rotorua, New Zealand. It's location ensure's that your close enough to all the action, but far enough away to relax in peace.
The rooms are clean, very well presented. and comfortable. The private hot spring spa is an excellent touch, great after a day out at the many attractions in Rotorua...or before!
Also worth a mention was the service from the owners. Pat and Noel do an excellent job running the Aywon Motel. So much so that I will be back to the Aywon, and wouldn't even entertain the idea of staying anywhere else.

After thirty five years of staying in motels I think I have seen it all and for all the things that I have come to appreciate from a motel this one is right up there in my mind.
Clean,comfortable,friendly and the oh so hard to find,:nice and quiet for a good nights
sleep.
A good location for getting in and out,and pretty handy to touristy things

The unit was spotless and the bed very comfy.
The plunger and fresh coffee were appreciated after our walk in the redwood forest from the motel.
The private spa was fantastic with luxurious bathrobes provided.
The manager and staff were friendly and informative and helped to get the most out of our visit to Rotorua.
