Motels in NZ never disappoint and the Emerald Spa must be the best we have stayed at - a spa bath in the bedroom! We were escorted to our room and told how everything worked, including the free wifi. It was a clean room with a comfy bed and everything essential for a 2 night stay. We took advantage of...

Although not the cheapest in the area it was by far the nicest of all the motels we stayed in while touring for two weeks the North Island of New Zealand. The reception was super friendly and Tania escorted us to our two roomed suite and explained how everything worked. Not only was milk provided (choice of lite or full...

Very warm welcome, lovely clean rooms, excellent spa,comfy beds, and absolutely fantastic location. Not far at all from shops, bottle-o's, pubs, restaurant and the main area of Rotorua. Free wi-fi that actually works and free parking. Excellent value for money. Would definitely stay here again.

Very comfortable and the manager couldn't have been more helpful. He gave us coupons for the cable cars and the Stratosfare restaurant in Rotorua. He was also helpful in suggesting things to do and see while in town. We enjoyed our stay here.

We stayed two nights and loved it. Arnold and Chilli were excellent hosts providing helpful recommendations for sights to see and restaurants to visit. The rooms were very spacious and comfortable, and the bath spas in the room were huge. We used the pool briefly for a refreshing dip after a long day of sightseeing

My boyfriend and I stayed here for 1 night during our north island road trip & it was perfect. We arrived before check-in (12pm) but were allowed to check in anyway and drop our bags before heading out exploring, which was ace.

Thank you for taking the time to review Emerald Spa Motor Inn. We have just upgraded our WiFi and we do offer as much free as you require. The sofabeds are never comfortable anywhere we have stayed but are there primarily for children. We hope your boyfriend is feeling better and look forward to hosting you again some time.

This motel is at the stinky end of town. Looking past that. The staff were all very friendly and helpful, including cleaning staff. Did have some troubles with the free wi fi to start with. They got the Internet man in to fix. Rooms very clean, bed comfortable, spa in room was huge. Pool clean and well maintained.

Satisfied with this accommodation for the money, about NZ$140. Good aircon, nice spa pool. But unhappy that the shower went cold when I was in it, and wifi was nothing short of hopeless. Bed comfortable though, as was room. Well located on Fenton Road with 10 minute walk into Rotorua town centre and all the restaurants/bars
