Another great stay at Rydges Rotorua for three nights. As we have family in Rotorua this is our hotel of choice to stay at when we are visiting from Dunedin. Rooms are spacious and very clean. Love the large comfy beds and the spa bath. Service is great, the staff are so friendly, and especially Raj in the Mezz Bar.... More

Nice hotel, big comfy room. large bathrooms which were a bit dated. Beds were very comfortable and we had a room overlooking the race course which was pleasant. Parking was free and the place was easy to find. The hotel had a really good buffet breakfast. Staff were helpful and the location was good.

My first time at this hotel, and pleasantly surprised. The hotel is built in a square style with rooms surrounding the central open area which is the restaurant area. It certainly makes the place feel very spacious and friendly. The room I stayed in was very large, had a balcony and spa overlooking the racecourse and lake in the distance.... More

We had a lovely stay here last week in a King Bed Spa Suite. The King bed was amazing and so comfortable. The staff are lovely and I especially liked that I ordered a newspaper for the morning and the 2 subsequent mornings after that I also received papers without having to pre-order them. The view to the racecourse was... More
