Novotel Rotorua Lakeside

4.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Fantastic staff & location. Dismal water pressure in our shower.

I enjoyed my stay, although would have expected the spa to offer more than a small mineral pool next to a small size swimming pool. But all and all it was a pleasant stay.

The Novotel in Rotorua is a first class operation with well maintained facilities and a wonderful staff that always are well informed and always greet the guest with a smile. The rooms are roomy and beautiful and the facilities are plentiful. The highlight is its location as it's only steps from the lake and a stone's throw to the shops and restaurants. The only room for improvement is the fitness facilities which are small but don't delude yourself in thinking you would work out anyway!

The location was great and the free internet service available in the hotel lobby was a nice bonus!

Very good experience....staff friendly and attentive

Nice clean hotel, comfortable rooms and great location. A bit sterile, though, felt more like a business hotel stuck in a tourist town... 10 out of 10 for value for money, however.
