A very high quality hotel that I enjoyed staying at. A couple of minor things but that would not deter from ever staying but great views, high standard of service and décor finish and a reasonable price.

Lovely hotel in a great location. Very clean and staff were friendly and professional. Loved the use of the Thermal Pools!!! Only complaint would be the additional layer on the mattress makes the bed too soft, personally we felt it was un-necessary! Happy to recommend.

Excellent hotel with lovely views of the lake. Large clean room with very comfortable bed. Fabulous breakfast with lots of choices. Made use of the spa which again was brilliant and helped us unwind after a long journey from Auckland. Very friendly and helpful staff. Only downside was the price of the internet, although you could log on for half an hour free wifi in the lobby and also there was the Rotorua free wifi you could log on to if you were close to the street. Would definitely recommend this hotel.
