“"VERY WARM & COMFORTABLE".....Peter Lintern.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 April 2014

We stayed four days at the "GOLDEN GLOW MOTEL" & found the owners & staff of high standards, the unit was clean, warm, & very comfortable, the spa was well used by our family.
Very handy to town & supermarket. We would stay there again.

Friendly and helpful owners and staff. Rooms were clean and tidy and a good size. Kitchen is well equipped and a small microwave. The spa kept the kids busy. There is a shed to keep bikes locked up. We would stay there again.

I found Rotorua to a great place to visit.
The staff were very friendly and helpful.
The room was very tidy and clean.
Best thing was the in room spa.
I do recommend this place to stay so I would stay here again for sure.

Room Tip: Choose one with the spa in the room but I think they are in all.
