    Fabulous 8.6 From 159 reviews

    Emerald Spa Motor Inn, Rotorua
    Very disappointing
    I booked a an executive studio with a king bed and luxury room with a king bed & a sofa bed. What I got was a double bed room & a unit with a double bef, sofa bed & a foldaway bed. This is after I was given the wrong rooms & had to go back to reception. When I went back to reception the lady said “oh it’s coz you booked online”?? Not sure what that has to do with anything. I paid close to $800 for the 2 rooms & didn’t get what I booked & paid for. And I asked if the 2 rooms can be in the same floor, even rang to confirm, and our rooms were across from each other, one upstairs one downstairs. I also rang to say we will be late as were arriving from Auckland & asked for late check in only yo be told “as long as you arrive by 9pm” how is that classed as late check in when reception closes at 9pm?? Very disappointing, we won’t be staying at this place again. Felt like I paid way too much for the rooms & service we got
