Enjoyed it here so we booked a second night. Large spacious room overlooking the racecourse. We had a private balcony with table and chairs and spa bath in room next to it so you had natural light coming in while you sit in the spa. Room itself was a little dark. Good central location. The hotel is admittedly a little dated, not as clean and modern as Ryges Auckland but we didn't mind as the good points about this hotel made up for it. But definitely room for improvement. Pillow cases very thin and no mattress protectors!! Toddler spilled juice in bed that got soaked up by mattress. Wondered what else has reached mattress from previous guests?! Freezer compartment of fridge was thick with ice so cleaners could do better, also some dust (kitchen area) and cobwebs found (balcony area). Bathroom floor and shower stains and cracks so needs overhaul, but we didn't mind, it's rotorua so not a big city hotel like you'd expect in Auckland. Lift had a weird nauseating smell and ground floor carpet had bubbles and noticed wall damage attempted to be hidden by pot plant. Strangely enough there was an ashtray in our room on a supposedly NON-smoking floor (2nd). Oh and could hear upstairs moving about. Pool was nice with 1 large & 2 small pools that we enjoyed. Breakfast is affordable so make sure you try it at least once. Don't expect an early check in (1pm we came) but were told our room was not ready despite explaining my toddler had vomited and I needed to clean her up, we could get a smoking room, well no thanks so I waited an hour with my child smelling of spew and had to change her clothes in the car. So the staff member could have been a bit more accommodating to needs of a sick child.
