    The Motel was identified as a golden chain motel, causing a little confusion (the signage is very old and delapidated as well) the unit we stayed in was very comfortable but definatley in need of maintenance, we paid the same tariff at a very neatly refurbished unit in the center of Auckland

    Very good

    It was easy to find and comfprtable, most things we needed were provided and staff were helpful.

    There was nothing that we didn't like but a kitchen cloth would have been good and the teatowel was stored in a funny place. Found it though.

    Fabulous

    I stayed here with my son and 15yr grand daughter. Just overnight but it would be good for a few days but no more people. The bathroom is dated but otherwise clean . The whole place is spotless and you have your own spa at the back door with a cover and private fence. Kitchen with everything in it . Great heating and comfortable beds. No traffic noise and good tv reception. Easy to find and off st parking. Good value.

    The Gwendoline gave us comfort and a relaxed but friendly atmosphere. The staff was awesome and I would not hesitate to stay again or to recommend to others.

    #1. Was able to park my car at the door step. #2. The kitchen are fully equiped with cooking utensil. #3. The heating system are quite warm during the early spring weather.

    #1. Could not locate the hotel as the name booked was different from the actual hotel on site. #2. Even though check-in after 2pm, still needed to wait for 30 mims as the hotel was not fully booked. #3. The rooms was a bit run down and need renovation. #4. Small box type 20" TV provided. #5. The beds are very soft esp. the single bed one.

    Good

    The ease of travelling into Rotorua and the amount of activites brochures available for local activities

    The staff never mentioned that the breakfast was not delivered to your room but down the road. Also Staff ate our Fathers 80th birthday cake which we returned to collect shortly after setting out. The remainder was returned to us with not even so much as an apology.

    Although very tired, it was clean.
