TravelPod Member ReviewsBrylin Motel Rotorua
The usual motel with a slightly unusual exterior, a long way from the city centre and no bus service to take you in. The room we were allocated was very noisy as it was on the main road and by the side lane leading to the units at the rear. It also suffers from the same gentle aroma that pervades the whole town.

... no longer make their migration to Tonga to breed, so the Eel People drive the eels to the coast so that they can set off on their journey to Tonga. The baby eels then make their way the 3,500 km back, even though they can't swim, and up the exact same waterways as their parents through a 2 year journey to begin the process again.

... as such. We made for the Hidden Valley, but the rain was too heavy to tempt us to spend money on a visit. The volcanic countryside was fascinating, with the low odd-shaped hills and little valleys. Clouds of steam were coming out of the ground everywhere as we drove along. Approaching Rotorua we became aware of a funny smell. Neither blamed the other out loud. I opened the window and a strong smell of sulphur blew in. At two we parked in town ...
... on average 1 inch per 100 years - talk about determination!). Once at the bottom there is a river on which you float in a boat through the grotto in complete darkness and silence, with just the light of millions of tiny glow worms to guide you - a magical experience. A cool site to see for sure.
Following our time at the caves we made the drive over to Rotorua. If we haven't said it yet - New Zealand is a country to drive as much of as you can - the scenery ...
... we had booked to visit in the morning, not wanting to drive any further with such horrendous sounding grinding and squealing coming from the wheels. Turns out we have been provided with the most pathetically small tyre iron and seized wheel nuts so we can’t even get the wheel off to try and resolve the issue – looks like we’re getting the breakdown guys out ...
