Great motel. Was cleanest weve ever seen! Lovely spa pool and great big TV. We stayed on the bottom floor. One night some guests were noisy late, and when we told Sheryl she sorted them out very quickly. We were really grateful and so impressed with their quick reaction. Would definitely stay again!

Thank you Melanie for your comments. Yes we were very sorry for the noise coming from these rather noisy guests, this can sometimes cause problems as there is always the odd ones out there who don't have the respect for other people. But we are pleased that you enjoyed your stay and would loo forward to seeing you both again...

Bill and Sheryl are always welcoming and take my bookings, provide meals and look after regular customers. The rooms are spacious, generally quiet and Bill like to ensure it stays that way. It's an easy walk to town for a meal and a wide range of handy restaurants to choose from. Some young fellows were scouting out Motels on Fenton...

We stayed for two nights whilst we were exploring the Rotorua area. Like many of the motels in the town, this one is on the busy main road, Fenton St, which tends to be fairly noisy but despite that we slept well. It is also at the quieter end of town. Our room had a spa bath outside at the...
