Lovely clean rooms, very spacious. Beds were comfortable Staff couldn't do enough to help, they were great. Having your own jacuzzi was a bonus. Rotarua has lots to offer, the Maori village was very interesting and the Polynesian spa was great.

Comfortable rooms and a good location to stay in Rotorua. The hot tubs are a nice touch. Hotel staff are very helpful with organising additional activities. It's touching that the hotel offers support to child cancer sufferers. There is a lovely book in the hotel room sharing the family's story. We would have no hesitation staying here again.
