This is slightly out of the way, a couple of blocks south of the south side of the downtown district, but we didn't mind the 5-minute walk to town, and the Central Mall right across the street (between BK's and the town) was quite handy. The lady at the desk (perpetually at the desk, from early to late every day, it seemed) was friendly and helpful, not only about how the motel works but about the town. We enjoyed talking with her.

Our room was modern and bright and had plenty of large, fluffy pillows and a fully-equipped kitchen. Beautiful bouquets of colorful live flowers hung outside each door; perhaps in NZ they can keep them blooming all year round. There are both ground floor and second floor rooms; be sure to ask for the former if you don't want to carry suit cases up a flight of stairs.

Great price. Good sized room with kitchenette, Spa bath an excellent bonus. Nice sized bed. Our Bikes were parked right outside our room.
Can't fault it. Highly recommended
Located across from Countdown. Easy walking distance to the restaurants.
We only got to stay the one night (as the entire town was booked out by the time I organised myself). So I struck lucky!
Will definately stay there again if returning to Rotorua
Thank you for the lovely welcome

Good motel with decent sized rooms. Get a Spa bath room if you can. Conveniently located across road from Countdown. Very clean with a good sized kitchen. Lots of travel information in the main office to help plan your days.

BK's is very conveniently located in Victoria Street, close to the city centre, restaurants, shops and take always. The room we used was specially fitted for handicapped clients and was very suitable for our needs. We could have chosen any of the many in Rotorua but chose this because of the good feedback on Trip Advisor. We are glad we did.

Thank you for your review. When we see so many positive reviews about a property or service it can raise the question ARE THEY GENUINE! We are very pleased that after reading our reviews you chose to stay with us and that we met your expectations.

We have traveled extensively ourselves and know how much we rely on the accuracy of the reviews left by previous guests when we make our decisions on where to or not to stay.

Thank you for your comments and we are pleased you enjoyed your stay with us.

I booked BK's firstly because it is a Flybuys motel and I wanted to use Flybuys for one night of my two night stay. I had booked a twin room for myself and teenage daughter but was upgraded when we arrived to a one bedroom unit - which was a lovely surprise.
The hosts were helpful and friendly, the unit roomy with a surprisingly large bathroom. It was spotless, and very well serviced the following day.
A TV in each room was a nice touch and the recliner chairs wonderfully comfortable compared to nasty pull-out couches in other motels.
It was very conveniently located across the road from a mall and supermarket. It was also good value for money.

Room Tip: While the room was quiet, being downstairs meant there was a bit of noise from upstairs guests check...

Thank you for your comments. We are very pleased you found us 'hard to fault' and you enjoyed your stay with us. Our recliner chairs are very popular with our guests and we get a lot of positive comments about them. Isn't it great being able to walk into town and not have to worry about parking and its all easy walking on the flat. We will look forward to your next visit.

Rotorua is the most loved tourist town to visit in N.Z. I have always been a regular visitor and taken our family there many times, and over those times we have always stayed at a different motel/hotel for no particular reason other than to try something new.
This time my wife and I only went, on a 2 day midweek break.
Marie on reception was wonderful being pleasant and most helpful.
The motel is situated right across the road from the shopping and food court complex. My wife and I shopped there and had breakfast there as well. Very convenient to walk anywhere in town.
I would recommend Bks motor lodge to all my friends and family.

Thank you "arthur p" for your review. We are pleased you enjoyed your stay with us. Yes the food hall in Rotorua's Central Shopping Center and the shops are so conveniently close (just across the road), no need to worry about parking as its much easier to walk. They are currently extending the undercover area of the shopping center, planned completion before Christmas but whats done already looks good. We will look forward to your next visit. Thank you.
