Ticks all the boxes but.........

3.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 3 Dec 2019
We stayed in the ex-caretakers quarters which is more like a house than a motel unit. The living area and bedrooms were very spacious but the kitchen facilities and crockery etc did not meet our expectations. The level of service could be higher too (we were told to park somewhere that was actually not correct; there was rubbish in the bathroom cupboard; only half a roll of toilet paper was provided for a booking of 4 adults for 2 nights which was not replenished when the room was serviced during our stay). Overall we were disappointed with our accommodation choice in Rotorua.

I spent 3 nights staying at Malfroy Motor Lodge recently and found it to be just what I needed. Its location, facilities and cleanliness could not be faulted and a big plus was the lack of traffic noise. The staff were so friendly and nothing was a bother and this is important when one is away from home. While I did not try the thermal heated mineral pool, other Trip Advisor postings suggest it is also a highlight. Thanks for making my time in Rotorua so positive.

We stayed in the three bedroom large family suite.

Very clean and had everything we needed.

Housekeeping was discrete and the daily servicing thorough.

The kids enjoyed the splash pool and the heating generous and adequate.

Mineral pool hot and clean.

Place well maintained.

Highly recommended for families.

Made to feel so welcome.

We will definitely return - in fact we already have made another booking!

Great motel almost centrally located to Rotorua. Don't mind the sulfur smell every now and then the wind will change eventually. The mineral pool was very relaxing for ten minutes then had to get out. The pool is good for aching bodies and weary travellers. Say hi to the Siamese cat as well.

Stayed here for three nights and enjoyed every minute of it it’s got a thermal heated mineral pool and a splash pool (great) free wireless broadband. Plus the owners are delightful especially Jayce who helped me with my mobile phone contract which I needed for my navigation aid for our tour of booth islands plus the cleaning staff were helpful and a good laugh. We absolutely give our experience here a 5 *****
