Recent guest reviews

The hotel looks quite old. However room is great and the bed is very nice and comfortable. Good location as well. Easy to walk around to find places to eat. It would be great if they provide a free access to the wifi as well

The hotel is in a good location and our room with a balcony overlooked the lake. We were unlucky with the weather. It was cool rainy and overcast and that together with the pervasive smell from the thermal pools undermined my memory of this place. Our room was not large but comfortable enough. We ate one night in Bar Zuzu which ok. A highlight though was when I took a photo early morning from our balcony and captured a blue moon!

Clean, tidy, warm, situated at the heart of Rotorua next to the lake. Beautiful amenities and surrounds! Staff are friendly on arrival and made some great recommendations about what to do when it's raining. Best of all everything is within walking distance 😊

I booked this hotel as a stay over in Rotorua whilst on a road trip across the North Island via Having read the reviews I was happy to book this hotel - but unfortunately I was disappointed. From the offset I was not impressed by the service on check in. For whatever reason, my fault or otherwise I had been reserved a double when I wanted a twin - and whilst in the end I was given a twin, I was very much made to feel like I was the one at fault, and that somehow I should have to be reminded they were doing me a favour. It didn't really stop there - the service was also poor when asking about booking trips and attractions. They just didn't seem that bothered. Then there was the room. Despite amazing views over the lake, the room was well below par for the room rate, and not what I would expect of such a highly rates hotel. It was outdated, and not particularly clean/tidy. The room felt very old and grubby. Overall if I was looking to stay in the area I would not recommend this hotel. The price doesn't match the expectation.

Stayed here for 2 nights and didn't get off to a great start. Dropped the wife at front door whilst I went to park the car. As I headed back, she was clearly struggling up the ramp, watched by what appeared to be a senior member of staff , who was chatting and laughing to a colleague whilst standing at the front door, but clearly never occurred to them to offer to help (considering the helpfulness we experienced in hotels across NZ this really stood out.) Check in was fine and the room comfortable, clean with a very good view. Soon after arrival we had extra towels delivered, which the housekeeper insisted we had asked for, even though we explained we hadn't, so I suspect someone was waiting sometime for their towels. The hotel has a good location in town, but getting a recommendation on good bar and restaurants resulted in being directed to an area of town without any real recommendations. Oddly this was also the only hotel in NZ (and Australia) that wanted to charge for WiFi, after this was observed upon the receptionist dropped the charge without further quibble!

This is a perfectly acceptable hotel, but not much more. Clean rooms, motel art on the walls, unabusive staff. Absolutely nothing wrong with it, just a very standard establishment in a fairly standard setting. Once you get over the smell of sulphur, Rototrua is quite a quaint little town and the geyser etc are truly remarkable. However, the non-touristy areas are a little run down and the city itself is not particularly inviting. Stay here if you want a good value hotel and a place to be based out of, it will work for the one night you actually need to stay to experience everythign Rotorua has to offer.

Stayed two nights. Hotel clean and tidy, room very nice, warm (important as it was mid-Winter) and serviced; beds made, towels changed daily. Nikau Restaurant very nice, service very good. I wanted to slightly amend a Menu item, no problem which was appreciated. Overall a good experience, would stay again without hesitation.

Rooms were tidy and clean and we're all we needed for our short stay in Rotorua. The hotel was very busy and struggled to deliver good service. They seemed short staffed especially in the bar and we waited long periods to get served.

This hotel was in a good location for a conference that I attended at the convention centre. Easy walk to & from the hotel .The room was clean & had enough amenities in it to make a worth while visit.Bar was good & had a conference meal there which was enjoyable.Only thing was the smell of sulphur from the lake close by in the morning.

This was a excellent hotel. Very clean. Great service and in a perfect location for what we planned to do. Rose gardens were awesome. We even got to visit a Jade Factory and watched a carving demonstration.
