Welcome to The Cleveland Thermal Motel. The Cleveland Thermal Motel is perfectly situated only minutes from both Rotorua's lake front and city centre, and in close proximity to many leading tourist attractions. We are an outstanding accommodation option for those visiting this tourist haven in the central North Island. Set in over 2 acres of spacious grounds with manicured lawns and beautiful gardens, the motel also offers a great outdoor heated pool, two hot thermal mineral pools, and a large children's playground area. Our comfortable rooms and amenities make The Cleveland the perfect accommodation choice for couples getaways, large groups, and in particular, family holidays. We have plenty of parking for boats, trailers, second cars or large vehicles, and with our location within walking distance of the markets at the lake, the central city, and the hospital, we are ideal for those without transportation too.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Although buildings feels like you are entering the 1980’s, this motel was tidy and clean. Great customer service and daily housekeeping. Only rating it a 4 because the mineral pool wasn’t hot enough. Just reached warm bath water. On the plus it looked like it had recently been painted with fresh murials. We appreciated this and the cleanliness of the pool. Location was also good for walking into town. Nice being able to hit the waterfront within 20 minutes or chose to walk through Kuirau Park.

My family and I stayed here and were not impressed with the lack of cuttlery, a old chopping board with deep scratches. There was also rules which weren't inforced by the staff there, one of the rules was no noise after a certain period of time or you would be evicted there was loud music, people talking outside as well as horns being tooted. Not sure why there are rules when they aren't being taken seriously?. We were so uncomfortable there that we went out every day to get away. This weekend was meant to be a relaxing one as I has my son with Special needs with us, a trust had paid for our stay there so we were stuck as there would of been no where else to stay during the long weekend. I don't recomend this place to anyone to stay at. It's a rip off, the staff don't care

As a Flight Attendant I am away from home allot. Because of this I purposely choose to stay at motels that are warm, cosy and homely. Cleveland motel is also safe, immaculate and well presented. The service is excellent and the hot pools a real luxury.

Spacious , comfortable motel which had a kitchenette. Showers were abit old but very good. Great place for families or couples exploring Rotorua if you want to be away from the main strip (Fenton). Close drive to the city & gondolas.

Perfect place for families. Everything and more. Studio we had was warm and offered plenty of space and beds for our stay (3ppl) modem bathroom and kitchen with everything you need. Having a communal kitchen & 2 BBQ, available to use was a welcome bonus, the mineral pools and thermal swimming pool were well used and enjoyed by us during our stay as well. Thank you. On site laundry is an added bonus as well as being close to city centre, parks and eateries. Owners were friendly,welcoming and knowledgeable in the area and local attractions. There was a large school group when we stayed over the long weekend they were always courteous and never loud you honestly didn't think there was 20(estimate) kids on site the back lawns, trampolines and swings kept them busy. Will definitely be back to stay again.

I stayed for one night recently and was very impressed. The motel is older and does not look much from the road but the studio I stayed in was modern, clean and very comfortable and the kitchen was well equipped. The pools are a real added bonus! The only thing I could fault was the cook top could do with a good clean. Would highly recommend for those on a budget.

Our stay in the Cleveland Motel was perfect! The very friendly and helpful people made us feel welcome. The room was clean, calm and reasonably priced. This is not a party motel. It's great for families or just people looking for a quiet, relaxing place to stay in Rotorua. I heartily recommend it!
