We first stayed here 4 years ago and were very happy to return on our next trip to Rotorua. Shane and Kasia are fantastic hosts and the location is excellent for us - we were here mountain biking without a car, so an easy 4km ride to the forest and a 5min walk to town. Hot pool highly recommended for... More

I really liked Victoria Lodge. The staff are friendly and the rooms are clean. I slept very well here and I didn't have a problem. Victoria Lodge is close to everything you need - including a Supermarket. I recommend doing the Gondola and Luge - worth the money. The Geothermal Park and the Whakarewarewa - The Living Maori Village are... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Victoria Lodge and would recommend to others. Although the room was not huge, it was clean and pleasant and serviced daily. It had tea and coffee making facilities, a toaster, microwave and crockery and glassware. The outdoor private hot pool was a dream! Easy and relatively quick to fill up. The venue was close... More

This is my first trip with my family to NZ. We travelled through Auckland, Roturua, Napier, Wellington, Christchurch & Queenstown for a total of 16 days. Victoria Lodge is definitely a very suitable and nice place for a family to stay. It's apartment style with fully equipped kitchen. When you are in Roturua I definitely recommend VL. It's very well... More

A nice hotel, unfortunately the wife could not cope with the smell that is Rotorua, so we checked out a day early! Our room was also noisy:-) the floor boards creaked badly which means waking people up if you go to the toilet etc during the night
