              The spa pool with the room was fun for the kids. It was very quiet.

              The motel wasn't very clean, the bedding in particular and the shower. The room was falling apart, it was pretty shabby.

              Helpful service for us and geniunly we like the closness to town,very nice stay.Thanks

              6.6

              One of the few places that allowed me to have a cost effective break with my older children

              The premises needed an update.

            • Family with children
              5.8

              Warmth of the unit.

              Pictures are outdated and did not describe the current state of the rooms. No information regarding the playground or mini golf that was advertised on the site was offered to us upon arrival or at any point of our stay.

            • Family with children
              7.0

              Gwendoline Court was up to expectations with cleanliness and the rooms were more than adequate.

            • Family with children
              7.4

              Found Gwendoline court very cosy and warm enjoyed being able to relax with my family i do not like the city as it is too busy for me so found Gwendoline location ideal for myself not too close to town but not out of town either

            • Family with children
              3.8

              Not a great deal

              Beds were very uncomfortable, add on website shows pool, this is at another hotel. you can get breakfeast if you want to walk 100m up road to another hotel, overpriced for what you get.

            • Group of friends
              9.6

              It´s my 3rd. time there. I always return! It´s a great place to stay the night while in Rotorua. I recommend it!

            • Family with children
              7.8

              We were moved to Silver Oaks which was great as the swimming pool was divine. As we were travelling with a very young baby it meant we could both enjoy the pool as our room was so close! It was fantastic, just a really affordable night away with all the essentials that we needed.

            • Family with children
              10.0

              My family enjoyed the stay at this accommodation, it was lovely in everyway, spa, comfort within the room, beds were comfortable too and made everyday, close to city centre and the staff were very polite and helpful. We would stay there again only minor fault but was easily sorted. We all love to stay there again including our family who lived near the town who came and visited us. Love the idea where they share amenities with their other Silver Oaks partners. I would recommend this to anyone with young or older children family. We requested an extra night stay with the office lady and that was easily arranged and was given a great discount and totaled our stay for 5nights Didn't want to leave but had to........=:)

              A little confusion on there was a laundry facility available in the rooms as mentioned on the website, as a matter of fact there was not. This was a shared with other guest separate facility. The shared amenities such as the swimming pool, barbeque area, tennis court, mini putt was a little confusion also at first, they were going to charge an extra but we only at the end only paid once for the mini putt. The other hotel (that provided the amenities) were not aware of it being a package so this might need some clarification with the Silver Oaks Heritage and as for the other Hotel they were aware of the booking and package included the amenities.

              i loved that the spa was empty and we had to fill it ourselves

              the cleaners rushed us out of the room
