Great stay in Rotorua!

We had a great experience at Ridges in Rotorua! Beautiful, comfortable room. Helpful, friendly staff! Quiet, great space in great location! Only disappointment was one of the staff made reservations at the wrong place for us. We missed out on seeing the Maori and the dinner. All else was great! Thanks so much!

Big Rooms, Good Location, Terrible Breakfast

As it says in the title, the room was big and comfortable and the hotel is centrally located. The buffet breakfast was utterly unappetizing, but considering other lodging choices in Rotorua, I would say this is probably about as good a place as you can find.

great kids school holiday experience

Congrats to Ridges for such a kid friendly environment. The food was perfect for the children and adequate for the adults. The rooms were a little too warm and it was difficult to turn down the heating but that would be our only concern

Not bad but not great

Reasonably priced hotel. Good location and clean rooms BUT why is there no free internet? In this day and age it seems crazy to have to pay extra for something that is as popular as watching tv.

Spacious Do-up

As other usual haunts (for some reason on this Tuesday) had no $100 rooms and pricing was on par here i thought i would give it a go for a change. Its a wonderfully spacious hotel but appears a little tired in places. The pool looked inviting. Room and bed was great but bathroom appearance lacked any wow factor. At these prices (NZ$175) i would expect a coffee plunger, hair drier, free wifi, items usually found in cheaper Motels. Great high pressure water but somewhat anoying to hear neighboring rooms using it at all times of the night. Overall not unpleasant however and certainly far better value than many stayed in outside of NZ recently.

Pleasant Stay

We were not disappointed. Even though the hotel is getting a bit dated I thought it was better than 2 Star. it was neat and tidy. Overall a comfortable stay. Good Value Plus ---- You do not have to pay for parking.

Excellent venue, within easy reach

Excellent venue, within easy reach of city shops, etc. We stayed over a weekend to attend our friends' 40th wedding anniversary celebrations at the hotel itself. Rooms were very spacious, spotless, warm, with great views of the lake from our balcony. We had read previous reviews prior to booking, and had concerns, but these were quickly dispelled, and we would most certainly stay there again. Our only negative comment would be the excessive cost of the room's minibar drinks and restaurant main meals, otherwise a very enjoyable stay.
