We went here just on a chance and it turned out to be one of the best if not the best places we stayed.. fresh ground coffee to your door in the morning - Peter the fella that worked there was really helpful, showed us around and directed us to the best pubs in town.. I can't recommend this place...

We arrived in the middle of a mild family crisis and the support and service from the staff at Sport of Kings went above and beyond all expectations. Kids and adults loved the pool and spa. Great place to stay.

I cannot say enough nice things about this place and the people who run it. From the second you arrive you feel you're taken care of and you know they're there if you have questions, want to have a little chat or need tips of what to see and where to go. They make calls to the attractions if you...

We were so pleased with this hotel and the owners! They really took the time to tell us about the sights and "secret" places to visit. We visited them all and it really made our trip! The rooms were excellent! The pool and jacuzzis were a dream. This hotel is very eco friendly and they truly care about their guests....

We stayed at the Sport of Kings Motel for three nights in August, 2015 while visiting New Zealand for a wedding. We arrived in Rotorua late, and when we got to the motel we realised we'd made a mistake and didn't have a room booked until the following day. It our fault, but the owners organised another room at the...

The staff here are amazing, super friendly and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble, they were happy to book tours and pass on discounts. The free Wifi worked well.

Did not pre-book a room but luckily they had a room for the night. When we decided to stay an extra night, they went the extra mile to give us another room and transferred our bags while we were out seeing the sights. Excellent local knowledge for things to do and see - as well as recommendations for places to...
