The Novotel Rotorua Lakeside was perfect for a weekend away.
On check-in, we were upgraded to a lake view room which proved to be a corner room on the second floor giving great view over the nearby reserve and Lake Rotorua.
The hotel is close to the 'restaurant end' of town where a walk of no more than 100 metres sees you in the midst of at least a dozen eateries.
We returned to the hotel late on Saturday night for dessert and coffee and despite the full dinner buffet being on offer at $52 in the main Atlas Restaurant, we were offered just the dessert buffet at $15 per person. Brilliant.
On another day, we returned to the hotel mid afternoon and had tapas at Clarke's Bar. Great choices and the scallops dish and the squid dish were superb.
Happy hour in Clarke's Bar "5 at 5" - $5 house drinks from 5pm - 6pm (or $10 cocktails).
Buffet breakfast could not be faulted when compared to similar experiences at similar hotels.
