We stayed here for 2 mights on our trip to newzealand. Checkin was friendly although we were not assigned the rooms we had requested for. Breakfast is good but not up to the standards of holiday Inn. We ordered room service for diner and our order arrived after an hour 15 minutes ..parking can be a real challenge as well....

We booked a room with a view and were not disappointed. The view changes all day and we enjoyed the little veranda. Breakfast was quite elaborate and tasty. There is a fair gym and pool. The hotel is centrally situated and provides easy access to all the activities. Bear in mind that the Rotorua area is quite a sprawling expanse...

Well situated on the edge of town, plenty of parking spaces, very welcoming staff on reception. Room was small, but clean, had everything we needed. Had dinner in hotel, nice buffet, good quality food. Again, staff were efficient and friendly. Outlook dire, onto corrugated roof over entrance way, was supposed to be onto lake! At least we were private!

My husband and I visited for 3 nights as part of our honeymoon in October 2016. Despite having the perception that as a Holiday Inn this hotel would be pretty bog standard we were nicely surprised that in fact the rooms were big (an upgrade helped with that too!) a and the restaurant serves great food! The evening food was...

This hotel is ideally located only a minute's walk from the very good Whakarewarewa Living Maori Village. In addition to the location, it is quite a good-looking hotel, and we slept well in the very comfortable beds. There is a reasonably sized pool on the premises for those who want a splash. We had no complaints regarding staff and service....
