Had an enjoyable family weekend away, even though it was a wet and cold in Rotovegas. You could have mistaken it was summer with the pools covered roof, so perfect for the kids, while we lazed by the pool and did some reading. The staff are very friendly and always offered you service with a smile. My son who's a pianist was also allowed to play on the bars grand piano and was able to play some easy listening peices to the appreciation of those close by. We also received discounts on the buffet breakfast which was a lovely gesture. The rooms had brand new beds and made for a comfortable nights rest. This is our favourite place to stay in Rotorua and we will certainly be back again soon.
The management were kind and very helpful and very informative and ready to assist both my elderly parent and myself They are beautiful people who make you feel totally comfortable Each time I go to Rotarua I will stay at the ASHLIGH MOTEL

Enjoying a peaceful residential location within easy reach of the city's attractions, the Ashleigh Court Motel offers you all …More
Couldn't have picked a better place to stay - in the CBD, a short walk to shops, restaurants, etc, at the end of a quiet street so no busy thru traffic going by. Lake view from the room.
While some aspects of the decor would benefit from a spruce-up this in no way affected our stay.
Had access to the pool and spa.
Would definitely stay there again
"Beautiful historical hotel, centre of Rotorua NZ"
This is a gem. The minute you walk in you are back in time. The staff greeted us and made us feel welcome immediately with a little tour and history of the hotel built in the 1890's, staff service A1. The hotel is one of the oldest in NZ. Chandeliers everywhere including our room decorated in keeping with the style. Beautiful bar and cocktails.
After reading recent feedback we booked. I then had a look at some older reviews, they did not rate the accommodation highly.
We were invited to inspect the rooms first by the manager, and had a quick look. So far so good. We decided to go with the first lot of rooms he gave the keys to inspect, no need to look at the other rooms.
Based on other rooms we took our own linen. It stayed in the car. The sheets and bedding were clean and crisp (I could tell by the crease marks on the sheets) The pillows were fine and had clean cases on them, as did the extra pillows in the wardrobe. The Sky was a bit tricky to figure out with the remote, but that took less than 5 minutes to figure out.
One of our rooms had a big corner bath tub, this was great. The housing for the heated towel rail was broken (I suspect some people using a towel rail as a grab bar) but it looked ok and was working and was in a safe condition. The bath and shower were clean.
The size of the rooms were very spacious with a bedroom and kitchen area etc. All kitchen facilities were available. The fridge was fine, worked well and was clean and in good order. The carpets were in good order.
The rooms had a radiator for heating and we nice and warm.
The rooms were not perfect, they were value for money and we got good value from them.
We used the pool and the mini golf. The pool was fine. Not too hot, not too cold. No one got sick, so it must by hygienic.
