We really enjoyed our 3 night's stay and were tempted to stay another night. The unit was tidy with a living area downstairs with beds in the loft above. Management communicated with us by email and TXT, checking to see when we were arriving. Rotorua has lots to do and we didn't know what we were going to do, but the office had walls full of brochures for local attractions, saving us a trip to an iSite. We were taken by the story in the photobook on the coffee table and impressed with the story of how our hosts had built up the business, which had struggled through the COVID times. It was nice and warm, as they had turned on the heat pump ready for our arrival. Everyone was very friendly. TV upstairs and downstairs. I couldn't cast to it as advertised but had brought an HDMI cable with me, which did the job just fine, using Netflix via their free WiFi. There was a hot tub, but we never got around to using it. The location on the main road is great, handy to everything but far enough away from the noise of the busy little city. Bottom line, would I stay there again? For sure.

Wow! what a lovely place to stay. We stayed in the One Bedroom Mezzanine unit. The location is great, the staff are very friendly and eager to make your stay enjoyable. The rooms are well cleaned and the atmosphere was very relaxing. The private Spa out the back of our unit was a family favourite. Highly recommended.

We had a large group of 15, so booked three rooms. Right from when we arrived the Staff were friendly and efficient. The Rooms are spacious, having upstairs, modern, clean, and added bonus of a Spa Pool. Quiet even though very central being only a few minutes to Restaurants and Attractions. We look forward to staying again thank you.

Where do I start. I am just beyond happy with our recent stay. Right from booking the room asking for a porta cot and high chair to the wonderful staff and especially the lady that was on at night ( sorry I’ve forgotten her name) she was just marvellous, she went out of her way for me and I am forever thankful. We were in Rotorua for a Tangi and I truly could not be more impressed with the helpful staff. I am thankful we choose this beautiful motel to stay in. The room was super clean. So much room for my baby to run around in. The spa was wonderful to relax in after a long day. This motel will now be the only place I stay when I come to Rotorua. Thank you!

My partner and I thoroughly enjoyed our weekend stay at the Arista. It was warm, inviting, immaculately clean. Such a neat space to relax after a challenging month. The staff were super friendly and helpful. Loved the large bed and had a restful sleep. Enjoyed the nice hot soak in the Hot Tub:-)I would highly recommend the Arista to anyone, whether you here for a business conference, holiday, family event or like my partner and I, an opportunity to have a much needed break. Nga mihi maioha. With appreciation. Mel & Colin
