A friendly welcome to a spotlessly clean and comfortable room. A little bit out of town but not too far from the action of Rotorua's Eats Street and a great location for visiting Te Puia. We know where to stay when we're back in Rotorua.

Silver Fern is on the Main Street headed into Rotorua - along with heaps of other hotels - suggest you skip the others and head here. We stayed in Room 3 - it's on the ground floor near the steps to upper floor. I was concerned it might be noisy - but really no problem. For privacy we kept the... More

We were absolutely thrilled with our stay here at the beginning of our two week honeymoon! They accommodated us last minute and the rooms were beautiful, spotless and incredibly spacious. Easily the most comfortable bed of our entire trip. The spa tubs are a huge perk! Breakfast wasn't included, but was very reasonably priced, along with being delicious and super... More

Good points: - motel provides free cot and high chair for our baby - water pressure is very good. - towels are thick and soft - free washing machine usage (detergent can be purchased from the counter) and...

Lovely welcome by helpful managers who made recommendations on what best to do. Can't recommend the visits to Tamaki Maori village, Te Puia and Wai-o-Tapo highly enough. Silver Fern was a little way from the centre, quiet and easy to find with comfortable beds and private spa.

We found Silver Fern to be a reasonably priced and conveniently located motel. It had clean and spacious rooms and was a short distance from the centre of Rotorua (5 minute drive to the centre). If you are passing through Rotorua for a night this is the perfect place to stay.

This was a very pleasant and well organised motel run by an extremely friendly, enthusiastic and knowledgeable couple who couldn't do enough for their guests. They booked trips and explained patiently the attractions of the area - a chore that must get repetitive - but each guest gets a good enthusiastic intro to Rotorua. Cooked breakfast delivered to the room... More

With only a short stay in Rotorua, we struck up a conversation with Shirley on arrival, which was excellent. She helped book a few things we wanted to do - which is out of the ordinary for us - and helped make the stay all the more enjoyable for us.Top marks for the assistance if nothing else!
