“Clean, Spacious and Friendly”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 May 2014

We hadn't booked ahead but found the motel in an information guide. We arrived at the end of a busy weekend at the hotel . The staff were friendly and welcoming. The room was clean and beds were comfortable. The private covered courtyard with spa was an added bonus. Would definitely recommend it to others.

If you don't the smell of Sulphur don't visit Rotorua! It certainly isn't the fault of the Aywon Motel! The rooms were comfortable the staff were friendly and helpful and the location and price were reasonable - What more can you ask? :o)

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 April 2014

We stayed in Aywon Motel for 3 nights. Upon first entering the motel we were happy to see a nice clean looking room, with a large bed, modern conveniences and a tidy area around the spa pool. However, further into our stay that night, we discovered there was 3 lights that weren't working, the fire alarm wasn't in place (there was simply a spot where it once was) and the double bed was actually two king singles pushed together. Also twice we discovered we had a few little friends in the unit, 2 cockroaches, a white tail spider and a rather large weta (although the last we didn't mind as much). The other issue I had with the spa pool was the fact it didn't seem to have been cleaned out, as there were small bits of concrete (from the edges that had fallen in) swimming about the bottom, which made for an uncomfortable spa. The rooms were also rather warm (which we attributed to the spa pool / weather) but which may have helped is a fan to simply circulate the air (we ended up buying a $20 one from the warehouse as the rooms became a bit to stuffy)

Aside from that the place was large enough for two people, had good kitchen ware, a wonderful shower and was clean upon entering. For the price of the room it was a good deal, but just a few things that Awyon can improve on :)! The people running the Motel are friendly (the two young guys we encountered) so it gets an average rating from us :)

Nice modern decor. Rooms spacious and very clean. Dressing gowns a luxurious touch. Private pool courtyards and friendly helpful service. Perfect place to take my friends from Dubai. Allowed us a late checkout as one friend was feeling unwell. I will definitely be back.

The robe for the spa was a nice touch. It was hard to get use to the stench when the room was shut up though. I had three cockroaches pay me a visit on my two day stay that i had to get rid of.
The kingsize bed was very uncomfortable - i had one very hard side then swapped to the other which was lop sided.
Housekeeping was very slow to service my room - i went out for over an hour and it still wasnt done. In the end i said just to leave me clean towels.

Ryan C, Owner at Aywon Motel, responded to this review, 16 February 2014
Thank you for taking the time to review your recent stay with us, we are pleased that you found the robe for the spa a nice touch. We were unaware of the stench that you mention however wish to advise that we take comfort of our guests seriously so thank you for bringing this to our attention. We were sorry to hear about the bugs that you found however we do run a comprehensive pest control system and we have arranged for a further treatment in this regard. As far as the comfort of the bed, thank you for raising this, we will certainly check the bedding to ensure the quality however beds are very much a personal thing. In regards to the serving of your room, our apologies if we did not get to your unit whilst you were out, we have a schedule which our housekeeping staff run to however we are only to happy to arrange an alternate service had we known. Thank you again and we hope to see you next time you visit Rotorua.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 December 2013

We were upgraded to a two bedroom apartment due to a recent flooding. Lovely accommodation and a hot tub included! Could not have improved the facilities.
Unfortunately we were burgled while we slept on the first night which was our second night in N.Z. The landlady allowed us to call UK to try to sort out insurance etc. Spent the morning being interviewed by the police including forensic assessment of area. At no time did either the landlady or her husband contact us to ask if we were okay (three sisters travelling together) or offer any form of empathy. She siad it could happen anywhere in the world and was relieved I still had a credit card to pay her with. The family in the unit next door had disturbed the burglar when he tried to enter their unit as the gentleman had been sent downstairs to sleep due to his loud snoring! I think the security should be improved and this is what the police said at the time. It is probably more risky having accommodation on the main road instead of inside the motel complex. All in all we didn't let it spoil our holiday which had been planned and saved for for a long time. I didn't meet the lady with a beautiful smile, just the Scottish owner.
We felt uncomfortable the next night and barricaded the door while we tried to sleep and were frankly relieved to leave.
