I was amazed by the hospitality of the staff at this motel. They were extremely friendly, went out of their way to recommend places to visit, offered to let me take the towels from my room to attractions like the Polynesian Spa and zorbing, and when I asked for the laundry service for one item of laundry, they washed it for free. I arrived a couple of hours before the check-in time but my room was already ready.

The room was very spacious with free wifi, a big spa bath and cute decor. The information pack includes menus for several takeaway restaurants that will deliver to the motel. As others have mentioned, it's near a lot of restaurants and attractions but off the main road so there isn't much noise. Those who have Air New Zealand airpoints cards can use their airpoints to book a room here. Very highly recommended!

Great hospitality at the motel. Large room with kitchenette. Décor was a little tired but very clean.
Off the main road so night time traffic didn't affect sleep. Wi-Fi included.
Good distance to eateries and attractions.

We stayed at this Motor Lodge for 3 nights and found upon arriving early to check in that the the owner was very friendly and though we arrived at 2 our room was ready and he had actually upgraded us to one of the bigger rooms. We found our room to be big with plenty of room and a really nice spa which was used every day with it being July. The location was also very good as it was located off the main road ( Fenton Street) and was very quiet at night. The proprietor was very helpful with a lot of ideas for trips and was very knowledgeable on Rotorua.'s attractions. We would recommend this Motor Lodge to anyone that is wanting to stay at a place that is very affordable and has excellent facilities.

From the exterior itself, it looks so good already. The inside did not disappoint as well.

My friends and I initially booked a room for 5 but the last minute we wanted an extra bed and the owner/man at the reception was so helpful. He personally carried the extra bed up the stairs (our room was upstairs) and tucked in all the covers neatly. The man also recommended us places to go and which tours and packages are more worth our money.

What wow-ed us was the jacuzzi - like hot tub in the bathroom. The bathroom is very spacious.

Not forgetting to mention that the wifi is unlimited.

Overall a very nice place to stay in and excellent hospitality.

I stayed at this Motor Lodge for one night and found upon arriving early to check in that the Receptionist was very friendly and quickly went out to check if our room was ready in which it was. We found our room to be a lot bigger than expected for a spa studio which was great. We did however find that there was not really enough lighting in the room, but other than that it was great. The spa was certainly a nice touch after a day filled with adventure activities. The location was also a great advantage point as it was located off the main road ( Fenton Street) which meant it was very quiet at night. Would recommend this Motor Lodge to anyone that is wanting to stay at a place that is not only affordable but has the excellent facilities to go with it. :)
