Stayed here two years ago when it was a 'Heritage Hotel' - has had its rooms refurbished since then and overall I think its a great value for money family spot.
We had interconnecting rooms - a little on the small side but really comfy beds and a fantastic selection of pillows on the new linen covers and sheets to choose from. There is a good selection of amenities in the bathrooms and a note offering more complimentary ones from housekeeping if you had forgotten an essential item, which I thought was a nice touch. Lots of towels too which is always good! No mini bar as such but a call to room service should you need anything to drink. Air conditioning worked well, and rooms quiet because of not on the main road.
About 5 min drive from the centre of town - but a couple of takeaways/cafes/restaurants within walking distance. There was a notice near the lifts saying they had complimentary shuttle service for those without a car. Lots of car parks right out front of the hotel for free.
SERVICE and FACILITIES
Really helpful, efficient reception staff - no charge for our snack to be delivered to the pool area. Outdoor heated (like quite warm!) pool a hit with the kids. Gym was well kept and all the equipment and machines was new and we enjoyed using it on our stay. Noticed they had a Beauty Spa but did not visit. Buffet breakfast was adequate and with good selection - with an offer every morning of cooking eggs to our liking in addition which was great. Staff in restaurant very friendly and helpful.
Overall a great family place - would definately stay again when in Rotorua!
