    Superb

    We loved our weekend break at Rob Roy so much we have pre-booked our next holiday in Rotorua with them in 2013. Absolutely brilliant with authentic mineral spa pools and extremely helpful, friendly staff. Recommend to anyone.

    Nothing we did not like.

    Superb

    Beds very comfortable, bedding condition and cleanliness very good, towels etc, peaceful most of the time, refreshing to have large windows with foliage for privacy.

    If I were to cast a critical eye over the unit - the conditions of the oven elements was possibly dangerous, no extractor fan for cooking steam and smells, Phone didn't work, table too small, shower poor, condition of cupboards and quantity and quality of kitchen things poor. Constant humming noises in walls, possibly faulty electrical things somewhere. Not enough power-points:had to remove one thing to use the microwave, then laptop then fan etc, behind the table. However it was just me in the unit and because I was happy to be there and it was peaceful, I tolerated everything with humour lol, thanks. Shirley.

    It seems somewhat out dated but there were a lot of facilities and everything worked well. Good place to visit ROtorua. People very kind and helpful. Room had a lot of space and convenient kitchen.

    I would love to stay another time. Big, sunny, quiet room in pleasant, soft colours with sofa AND table and chairs and roses and camellias outside. The kitchen had the best facilities I've enjoyed: stove, microwave, electric frying pan, 5 pots, casserole dish, pyrex dish - and handee towels which are so useful around food preparation. The T.V. was a reasonable size - not a huge room-dominating screen: the bathroom and shower were roomy and the thermal pools were really hot - a rare find! The host and hostess went out of their way to make it a great stay -even supplied bottled water and paid their own plumber at night to get water onto the place after the city had turned it off for over 8 hours with no indication of the service resuming.

    Bed headboard was a bit loose for leaning against to read.

    The location is great - right on main road. Close to town.... Unit slept 7 comfortably, this is all we wanted.

    The smell, but they can't help that! Oh & maybe the TV could be bigger...

    Nothing I liked I did send a email

    The kitchen & lounge was soo filthy cobwebs behind the curtains , behind the kitchen door , cobwebs under the lights at kitchen , the drapes so dusty as if it was not touched from ages. Cockroach found in kitchen & bathroom my daughter screamed at nite when she went to bathroom. the bed was broken my daughter fell off and had to sleep on matteres on the floor for the rest of the night. the vents soo filthy i got sick of the dusty room i had no choice we had to stay a night as it was my 1st trip so i didnt knew much about Rotorua. the sign board or ROB ROY has a spacious pool but it was small and the notice said no diving or jumping how a person can jump in a tiny pool. no proper ventilation we had to go to Polynesian SPA, and the owner of ROB ROY winch about giving extra towels. the dishes was greasy had to wash them all before using. no range wood when i was cooking it smoked up and the owners came and what u burning and i wanted to use the electric frypan there was no cord for it. my partner went angry on me as how did you made the booking to such filthy motel.as iam cleaning Manager for a cleaning company and this level of cleanliness is no no to this type of industry. and i did email you the full report with pictures please feel free to contact me as every dollar counts and there no dollar to be wasted to this kinda motel. i hope my concerns will be raised and i get some kind of compensation

    Very helpful. Allowed us to park our vehicle in their garage overnight and happily put our frozen roast in their freezer - thank you

    Parking quite tight.

    We liked the attitude of the management. The host was very helpful, available and pleasant. The facilities were adequate for our needs. It was clean and cosy (a bit hot at one point) plenty of space and well resourced. The location is great, close to city and supermarkets. We would definately stay there again.

    It was difficult to cool the room down as the heating pipes run under the facility. This was not a major, and management did their best to assist.

    The manager was friendly. It was warm and dry. The bathroom was clean and had new fixtures. It was cheaper than other places.

    The furniture was old, worn and uncomfortable. The TV was too small (22"). and cheap. The double bed was so old it sagged in the middle. It was such a drama to use the 'hot pool' that came with our unit, so we didn't bother, felt cheated. The main 'pool' was so unpleasant the kids were in and out in 5-minutes. The hot water in the shower was a hazard for little children as it was difficult to get the temperature right with out being burnt or freezing. The motel really needs a serious make-over, it is old dated and falling apart. Paint is peeling off and the walls are mouldy. The courtyard where the hot pool is, needs serious attention. The bath towels were worse than sand paper and all different colours and makes.
