Love the room, which is king deluxe spa - roomie and reasonable price. 50-50 on staff rating as some of them are great but some of them don't have personal touch at all. Breakfasts were ok but quite dissapointed with xmas dinner. However will I be back? Yes.

All was good in the service & room, the 4th floor room was very spacious with high ceilings & good air-con. Watching the tv from the bed made it look very small & it only had the basic 5 sky channels + free to air. the free Wi-Fi worked well during the whole stay. Breakfast was reasonably good & as...

The hotel was nice enough but felt a bit tired. Maybe that is because Rotorua itself is a bit like that though. The staff were pleasant and helpful. The room was large and with a nice balcony overlooking the race course. The breakfast was fine but we had a higher quality one at Rydges Wellington. We struggled to find a... More

We had booked two nights from the UK but when we arrived we found this place so bland and soulless that we booked out after the first night. We had booked a deluxe room but there was nothing deluxe about this hotel. We initially got a desperately poor room on the ground floor and after complaint were moved to the... More

Room was spacious with a balcony overlooking the horse race course and very central to everything in rotorua. (If u had a car). The... More

We booked in to Rydges Rotorua with our 2 god children both aged 10 years. Thy had a ball in the swimming pool and really enjoyed the free buffet breakfast. The fact that our package included breakfast for 2 adults and kids eat free was a very good reason to stay. Friendly staff always helps

We loved our room here it was amazing, it was great to have a large spacious room with a toddler, the seperate spa bath was a bonus too. The cleaning staff did a fantastic job tidying our room each day.

We stayed here is part of a group travel experience. The hotel is somewhat tired. They say it was originally built as a retirement home, because of this the rooms are very spacious. The hotel seems quite tired. The food for dinner was better than expected. The breakfast was ok.
