            9.6

            Great owners/staff. Very friendly. Lovely clean apartment close to all amenities in Rotorua. Would definitely stay there again.

            Decor was old-fashioned but clean.

          • Family with children
            10.0

            Very friendly and helpful staff. Very accommodating to our children and our pet. Useful advice about local attraction. We booked the Queen Studio and the 3 bedroom apartment for one night. Rooms were very clean and comfortable. A real home away from home. We will happily stay there again and we recommend the Santa Maria Motel to all. Thanks again for a very pleasant stay.

            Convenient location, staff friendly and helpful.

            The motel and environs were a bit tired looking. Looked a lot better on the website.

          • Family with children
            5.4

            It has a pool in the sunshine and a hot spa however we never used them - too busy. Motel was within walking distance to Redwoods Park and close tothe start of the road to Tarawera and the Buried Village. Good curry house just up the road!

            The cottage that we stayed in was old and tired with black mould around the bathroom taps, towel rails etc, furthermore it vibrated when trucks drove by on the main road nearby. The other motel rooms looked better but would not accommodate my family size.

            7.8

            Apartment was very spacious, simple and clean. Kitchen fully equipped, spacious bathroom. Our room had been for our arrival which was great as it was below zero outside. Very friendly and helpful staff.

            Warm welcome.

            Sofa in living room was very uncomfortable. Motel was a long way from the centre of town.

            Nice surroundings, all neccessities provided and very family friendly.

            A time warp back into the 80's but still very pleasant.

            It presented great value for money. The owners went out of their way to accomodate us and find the best deals on the local attractions.

          • Family with children
            7.4

            Liked best? Jason was the most helpful, generous motlier I've ever met. 'Excellent' just isn't enough, superb is a better fit. Location - busy area but close to the city and all city and country-side attractions. Cottage gardens pretty and our 4 year old loved the rabbits. Spa not over-chlorinated, very relaxing.
