Distinction Rotorua Hotel and Conference Centre

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The pool and hot tubs were not as pictured. They were mediocre at best and maybe even a little creepy. But the service was great and the rooms were clean and relatively comfortable. All-in-all a decent hotel for rotorua, but I would have stayed in Taupo if going again.
