When you're met with chairs chained to a rusty table outside your room, notices saying no visitors after 10pm and guests must not remove towels from the room it didn't make us feel terribly welcome. This along with being told it wasn't worth making filter coffee for guests at breakfast as there weren't enough people to make it worthwhile didn't...

hi LindaSlater, Thank you for taking the time to review our Motel. Unfortunately we, the owners were on a weeks break when you stayed, and are saddened that you did not feel a warm welcome from the manager who we had looking after our motel.

Warm & welcoming. We enjoyed our stay & would definitely return. The motel was clean, well serviced & secure.The breakfast supplied within the room rate was a bonus. We were handy to the shopping centre yet far enough away for it to be nice & quiet. Thankyou to the hosts.

Stayed here a couple of nights whilst touring around. Very good room although somewhat small. Vince was a very good host and gave us good advice. Of street parking was a bonus, and the breakfast was more than adequate.

Recent overnight visit, the staff helpful, providing fresh milk on arrival, not the horrible uht stuff. Room size ok. Shower could do with better water pressure. Beds comfortable. Room cosy. Breakfast in the dinning room was a nice bonus included in the price. Located close to centre of town, shops across the road.

This is an awesome hotel. We stayed here for 3 nights and can't recommend it any more. The guy that owned the hotel (obviously a very dedicated All Blacks fan) is a really helpful, happy guy. He's full of information and seems to like assisting and pointing guests towards the areas tourist attractions. The rooms are tastefully decorated and comfortable....

Well presented, comfortable and conveniently located. Host, Vince was very helpful with recommendations for sightseeing and taking in what the Rotorua area has to offer Good breakfast was a bonus.
