Stayed here one night as part of a tour (note it is used by a number of tours so note if you are an independent). Larger and more comfortable room than their Christchurch sister hotel. Handy outside tables for a drink or a coffee (there is a happy hour that we caught by chance). They struggled a bit to keep... More

I arrived to friendly and efficient service and had my room key within 10 minutes of arrival. I enjoyed the same friendly service for a light dinner and then retired to my room to prepare for a busy day ahead. The room was tidy and clean with two double beds but with plenty of room to work at a desk... More

I'd recommend turning the a/c off at night, as the smell can be a bit off putting! Although, it's rotorua after all! Walking distance to dining and staff extremely helpful. Free wi-fi in the lobby great. Breakfast was basic, but enjoyable. Would recommend for a 1 night stay :)

Great place if you just need a place to sleep. The staff is friendly and helpful. The rooms are clean and tidy. And just big enough. Breakfast is good but not the cheapest. The hotel is has plenty of parking and close to the city center.
