Stayed 2 nights at Easter at the Novotel with our 2 young children. Upgraded ourselves to a Lake view room - well worth it with great views of the lake and activities in the park. The hotel is in a great location, in walking distance, close to the lake, shops and restaurants.
Check in was quick, friendly and efficient. The room was spacious with 2 double beds, clean and bright.
The 1st morning, when leaving our room, we saw the housekeeper in the corridor. We told her that we are out for most of the day, so you can clean our room next. She obviously saw that we had 2 young children. Upon returning we noticed that she had given us extra towels, soaps and shampoos - a nice touch.
Our rate included full buffet breakfasts, a wide selection available. I think most guests don't know that you can ask for fried eggs and other items not on the buffet. Staff happily oblige.
Did not eat dinner at the hotel, plenty of restaurants nearby. 1st night we ate at Nando's - great food and service. Also, unlike most Nando's we have eaten at, they service beer and wine. 2nd night at the nearby Thai restaurant - over priced and surly service from manageress.
Overall we enjoyed our stay in Rotorua at the Novotel. We normally stay in motels in Rotorua, but would happily stay at Novotel again.
