RAM logo large

Rotorua Association of Motels (RAM) was established in 2007 to promote and protect the interests of the Rotorua motel community through representation, education, communication.

Our association represents a number of self- contained motels and apartments within the Rotorua district offering a wide range of accommodation options to suit those with the most discerning taste through to those on a limited budget.

Accommodation on offer would typically range from:

• Studio units containing at least tea and coffee making facilities which may include a kitchen/kitchenette and will have at least a double/queen/king bed or two singles.

• One bedroom units will have a separate bedroom with a double/queen/king bed or two singles plus a separate lounge and at least tea and coffee making facilities. It may include a kitchen/kitchenette.

• Two bedroom units or apartments will contain the same as a one-bedroom unit but will have two separate bedrooms, and would generally include a kitchen.

• A family unit will have multiple bedrooms and would generally include a kitchen.• Some motels also have houses connected to their property booking systems

The majority of our member motels and apartments are businesses owned and operated by the people who will meet and greet you on arrival. Many have a wealth of knowledge about the local activities and must do places to see in Rotorua.

During COVID there have been many accommodation providers change their business models and if you have any concerns about which properties to select we highly recommend making an enquiry through to our email ram@stayrotorua.com, check out Trip Advisor or contact the Rotorua isite, there phone number is 07-348 5179. We want you to be happy with your choice.

For booking one of our members at RAM they can be found on this website where a booking can be processed (no payment taken, pay when you arrive or as per accommodation policy) or alternately go direct to their online website to make a direct booking.

Booking Direct means no commission is paid and all taxes and revenue stay within the New Zealand economy, and quite often your get a better deal!

If you’re a corporate group looking for a conference or a longer-term accommodation once again flick us an email and we can guide you in the right direction, many of the motels work extremely well together and can coordinate large group bookings. We are here to help.

We look forward to seeing you in Rotorua very soon!
