“Very beautiful sight”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2013

The sights, like in most places in New Zealand are spectacular. Great place to sit and enjoy the view and a meal (if you brought it with you)

“Nice and relaxing place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2013

Rotorua is a small town in North island of NZ. The place is a popular weekend getaway for North Islanders. I lived in NZ for 2 years an rotorua was a favourite destination for me n my friends. The place is small but has a lot to offer...from relaxing by the lake to taking the gondola ride to the sulphur mud pools to hi-speed jet boat action in the rotorua lake. I would recommend it to everyone visiting NZ!

“Interesting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2013

Stopped and had a look while I was in Rotorua and found it interesting to visit. I am aware that I would have gotten a better pleasure from my visit to the lake by actually taking a cruise on it. I would recommend this for all visitors to do a cruise, rather than simply going lakeside

“Very odd lake to look at but beautiful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2013

We arrive at Polynesian Spa and Lake Rotorua was behind. The colour of the lake is different to normal lake. There are history told about this lake. At the back of the lake you can see steaming in the air...The smell.. very unusual but interesting.
