Customer Experiences at MALFROY Rotorua Accommodation



“Lovely place to stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 1 week ago
We stayed 3 nights with our girls (3 & 6 years) during school holidays. Spacious and comfortable accommodation (especially beds), loved the central heating, hot pool was a massive hit with children even in the rain. Owners were very welcoming and had great advise on what to do even on a rainy day. Would definitely recommend to others.

“Look no further.”
5 of 5 starsReviewed 1 week ago
We have just spent 3 very pleasurable nights as guests at the Malfroy motor lodge.As a family of 6 it's not that easy to find accommodation that fits the bill,but this place certainly does. Room 8 was plenty big enough for us, the decor was classy,and although our apartment was close to a fairly busy intersection sound was minimal,(we live rural so city noise can be a problem for us)Ron and his lovely wife were great hosts and filled us in on any info we needed to know.The DVD library in the office was great for the kids, as was the hot pool and the mineral pool was bliss on a lovely but cold winters night for us adults.
All in all a great time was had by all and we are more than happy to recommend the Malfroy to anyone looking for excellent accommodation at a reasonable price.We will definately stay there again.Regards.Mark and Bonnie.

Room Tip: For a family you can't go past room 8.Perfect.

“Cosy and Good Value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed 3 weeks ago
This week we spent 3 nights at the Malfroy Motel. The owners are very accommodating and friendly. They provided lots of tips about where to go and what to do. Quiet location and handy to town. The room was very cosy and warm. Comfy beds, nice towels and linen. The children enjoyed the hot pool to relax in each afternoon after a big day out.

“Wonderful experience and very nice host”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 3 weeks ago
I was travelling alone to Rotorua, and booked this motel in advance online. When I got there, Ron upgraded my room for free and elaborated every part of the room in person. The multi-functional bath was amazing. Before went to bed, I could enjoy the mineral pool at the back yard that really relaxed me after all day's trip. Ron also introduced me a lot of ways to have fun in Rotorua. The place is walking distance to Mall, the lake, and the famous spas. By the end of the staying, he drove me to my next stop and told me a very inspiring story on the way which gave me a lot of courage to face my real life, yeah, considering the reason I went to Rotorua was to cure myself spiritually. I was grateful to find this motor lodge to stay. I have to say Rotorua is really a ''cure'' city because of the good heart of people who contribute their life there. I would definately go back to Malfroy Motor Lodge next time. - Sophia

Flights to Rotorua New Zealand

Rotorua has its own international airport due to the regular influx of tourists. Rotorua is simply one of the top three must-see destinations in New Zealand.

The best airlines to consider when flying into Rotorua are:

Air New Zealand - AirNZ is New Zealand's flagship carrier. So far, it has the best customer service from check-in until you disembark. The planes are clean and new. The booking system is seamless and they offer generous baggage allowance.

However, AirNZ is not as affordable as a regular budget airlines. So we highly advise that you sign up on their mailing list and pay attention to sales. This is where you get great value and make sure you get a fantastic flight experience.

JetStar - Jetstar is Australia's pride in the budget airline category. Jetstar's actually getting better in terms of customer service and they do offer year-round competitive fares.

If you are in hurry and need to book a quick, cheap flight, then try going via WebJet - this website generates the cheapest price for all flights going to Rotorua and saves you the time in terms of visiting all websites and rummaging through online deals to save on flights.

Cheapoair.com is another great place to book your flights. Once you sign up, you will even receive regular deals, flight coupons on top of generating for you the cheapest fare.

“Excellent motel for the family”
5 of 5 starsReviewed 1 week ago
Our family of 5 stayed comfortably in the 2 bedroom apartment in late June 2014. The weather was chilli but the room was very warm, cosy and quiet and had great kitchen and living facilities. Everything we could have needed was provided and the extremely friendly owners went out of their way to make sure we were sorted and settled. The room was very clean and having it serviced each day was a real bonus. The sulphur and fresh water pools were a huge hit with all of us, both first thing in the morning and after a busy day out sight seeing. Our kids were so taken with Ron, and especially the treasure hunt he organised around the gorgeous art pieces dotted throughout the motel grounds. If a relaxed easygoing stay is what you are after then I would highly recommend the Malfroy motor lodge. I know we will be going back!

“Good and excellent”
5 of 5 starsReviewed 1 week ago
Last month I travelled with my family in Rotorua and booked Malfroy Motor Lodge as a two-night-stay place. It's awesome and left us a good impression. Ron is so kind and recommend us a lot of place to go and also the mineral pool is fantastic. Really like this place and recommend to everyone who is seeking for a nice place to stay in Rotorua.

“Malfroy Motor Lodge”
5 of 5 starsReviewed 4 weeks ago
We were delighted to discover this older but well maintained motor lodge in the Rotorua area. Only a 10 minute walk from central downtown. It has spacious rooms with excellent kitchen facilities and room to sit down with friends. Lovely gardens with abundant art work. Lodge has its own small fresh water pool and a mineral bath which can accommodate about 4 people; both use geothermal heating. Unless you require fine spa massage and coddling, the Malfroy provides all the advantages of upscale hotel/spa at a fraction of the cost. The proprietors are extremely knowledgable and friendly and can arrange for any tours or visits to nearby attractions. Even though it is next to a major road and roundabout, we found it to be quiet and pleasant. In summary - great stay, quiet, good location, older charm and excellent service. -Gallagher and Rogers

“Excellent place for the family”
4 of 5 starsReviewed 4 weeks ago
The rooms are clean and the thermal pools are a great place to sooth tired or cold muscles after all the exciting activities in Rotorua. The friendly owners are very knowledgeable about the area and fun things to do.
My only issue is with the bed. I prefer a soft bed which this room didn't have. But I think this is a personal preference. Otherwise I love this place.

MALFROY motor lodge is conveniently located for all of the major attractions and geo-thermal valleys.  We are only a 3 minute walk from Rotorua's largest shopping mall, which is next to the City Centre where you will find a good choice of general stores, boutique clothing and souvenir shops, good coffee places - and a range of quality restaurants and lively bars - on Tutanekai Street.  Another 5 minutes from there and you are down at the lakeside.

Address: 51 Malfroy Road, Rotorua

After having a good stay 3 years ago. We decided to revisit with family over the long weekend. With family visiting from the UK, three generations took up residence in the amazing family suite. Between the 6 of us (6mths-71yrs) it was a bargain for what we recieved. Wonderfully equipped and super clean. The hot mineral pool was the highlight and we lost count of the times used. Everything else was excellent, location, hosts, local art, late check out and atmosphere. We enjoyed it so much we've booked up for next year.

Lovely setting with clean, well equipped rooms and the motel's own thermal pools, in a quiet spot not far from the city centre and close to a shopping centre. The owners were very helpful. Highly recommended.
