I loved the free delivery to the motel from the restaurant and the use of the public spa pool. The shower could do with an upgrade but overall a great stay and would recommend.

Highly recommend the Sport of Kings Motel. Tristan and her staff were very welcoming and knowledgeable about where to eat and what to do in Rotorua - discounts on tours and attractions are also available at Reception. The pool was nicely heated with BBQ facilities. The rooms were comfortable - no air conditioning, but heating and fans available. I would definitely return to this motel.

Fantastic customer service by lady at front desk (owner?). Lovely spa in the room. Comfortable beds. Strong sulphur smell at times but didn't deter from our enjoyable experience there. Can get hot in the room during Summer, they gave us an extra fan for the living room which was nice. Thanks, will be back, had a lovely stay.
