Location: About 3-5 long blocks from Rotorua's little downtown. Normally this wouldn't bother me as a few blocks is nothing but we were here during their summer and it was very hot. We had taken the Intercity bus to Rotorua which drops you off a few blocks away from the hotel. Staff: The guy at the front desk was very... More

Stayed here two nights, ended up being one of the best stays of our whole trip. The lady who checked us in was extremely helpful! She spent ages explaining many different activity options in Rotorua. She also helped us place some bookings. The rooms are quite decent. They have everything you need (complimentary WiFi that lasts 3 days, too). It's... More

We've stayed at RotoVegas about a dozen times over the last 8 years. We (a group of 8 mates) fly in from Brisbane knowing that our accommodation is all sorted and that we can hit the relax button with the only thing to think about being the choice of beer + restaurant! The staff are approachable, relaxed and friendly and... More

Midway between Zippy's (café) and mountain bike trails, supermarket and bottle-o across the road, super helpful hosts, well appointed "house" for groups. Easy choice every time. This line is added to make the minimum review length.

We booked this online a couple of days before arriving, and chose it for the price and proximity to the town. Although on the Motel Mile, it was nearer town than a lot of the others, and also quite tongue in cheek about the Vegas bit! We had a retro room with spa bath and flamingos, it was great. From...

Hi Carolyn Thank you for taking the time to review us on Trip advisor. Yes all of our rooms come with kitchenettes which allow you to cook your own meals.
