    Excellent motor inn. Value for money, friendly and very clean.

    Fair 4.0
    Not worth the money spent
    Check in process was efficient and front desk staff was lovely. however room itself was in poor condition- had an awful smell, dirty towel left on the bathroom floor (presumably hadn't completed cleaning yet?), not enough towels for the three guests we had booked for. Could have been better.

    Family Stay
    Best Fish and Chips at Oppies was a block away. Overall average stay. Tamaki maori village has pickup from Emerald spa and was one of the best things we did in New Zealand.

    Scam booking by nz.hotels.com
    nz.Hotel.com took our booking for one night at the Emerald Spa Motor Inn and room payment with Amex, then we get advised by Emerald Spa that there was no room available when the booking was made.

    Disappointed
    Very hot no aircon, blinds didn't work need replacing
    donald, nz1 night trip
    Very good 8.0
    Emerald Spa
    Reception staff were friendly and helpful. They readily supplied me with a map of Rotorua when I asked for one. The room was clean and tidy. Sky TV had access to most channels. The motel is only a short drive (5 minutes) from the city, so it is close, as are the Polynesian Spa Baths which i intended to visit.
    trevor, nz2 night trip
    Very good 8.0
    OK stay but our room location was awful
    Room was close to the road so it was not quiet. There was maintenance work going on and the workers left scaffolding laying on the walkway just outside our door. We had to step over it to get out of the room. The toilet was located way too close to the wall. Room was a bit cramped but OK. Sufficient parking. Short drive to downtown. Friendly, helpful staff.
