Really enjoyed this cute bedroom to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The owner is very friendly and helpfull. And walking distance to the town centre. Ideal! We'll most likely go back for our next visit in rotorua.

This place is let down badly by the truly awful bathroom. A nylon shower curtain which was essentially there just to stick to you with its cold clamminess as all the water went onto the bathroom floor anyway and sat on the tiles all day as there was no ventilation. The bed was a bouncy nightmare and the pillows were... More

We are sorry to hear the sulphur smells of Rotorua wasn't to your liking, I guess we've grown accustomed to it. The sulphur odours are of a nature accordance thing here as with why many come here to experience its unique atmosphere with all other thermal out door activities available here in the fun city of Rotorua. We like our... More

The room was clean, the hosts were great (they even left a bottle of bubbly in our room as we just got married), and the private spa was unique. We took our dog which was great. Definitely recommend Victoria Lodge.

Lovely welcome from current managers, we walked off the street late afternoon, located in a central quiet location. 15 minute walk to EAT STREET, tight squeeze parking available, Clean rooms with good general facilities, smokers area is a bonus. good for the budget

This is a nice little motel with an ingenious hot pool system where you climb out of the bathroom window to get in. The manager was very friendly and helpful and the motel was very quiet, despite being full. Nice furnishings and décor, free wifi (Rotorua is very good at the free wifi thing, take note rest of NZ) and... More

Victoria Lodge had everything it promised and all we needed for a lovely weekend break in Rotorua. The private hot tub was excellent as was the location and Sky TV. We loved being able to sit outside under the stars and soak in the hot tub. The light rain we had was even appreciated as it cooled us down after... More

Room was good for the amount we paid. Receptionist was great help in booking rafting trip for us at the last minute, pointing out good trails to walk, and showed us the washer/dryer to use. Wifi worked well for all 3 devices that we carried.

Great location, situated near the town center. People are very friendly, especially the girl at the office. The room was very cosy, with a private spa with the local thermal water. A very nice stay. I usually don't care for stay in town, and this one made me revise my view on the matter.
