Just been to the Emerald Spa in Rotorua. With 2 kids under age of 7. Highly recommend this hotel. Very friendly and welcoming staff on arrival. Rooms were immaculately clean and spacious. Spa was enormous! Quite central to all in Rotorua. Good heating during winter!

A great experience from the start with excellent, friendly and informative service. The two bedroom unit was perfect for our family with 2 children. Very comfortable beds. Clean and well appointed units throughout. Good free wifi. The kids loved the warm pool. Overall an excellent experience at a good price. Would recommend.

Stayed for 3 nights. Super clean and tidy and generally a really great place to stay. We arrived very early morning from the airport and we were able to check in right away which was wonderful. Room to lock our mountain bikes away safely as well. Well managed and would stay here again.

My stay here was amazing, very inviting and relaxing with the great spa bath we had in our room which is a perfect way to wind down after a long day out. Rooms were very clean and modern. There is an outdoor pool which was perfect for a swim. Customer service was great, very helpful indeed.
