I had a great stay at the Holiday Inn Rotorua. First the highlights. Our room had a fantastic view of the smokey sulfur pits. Was definitely a unique view.
Bed was very comfortable and I slept really well. Staff always attempted to help whenever possible and the gift shop staff member was particularly friendly. Also there was always someone available to answer questions.
It was in a great location and all the great activities was very easy to get to from there.
The buffet breakfast was delicious and there were lots of choices. I liked the look of the swimming pool as well which is heated from the sulfur pits but I didn't have time to try. There is just so much to do in Rotorua.
There were only a few minor things that could have made the stay even better. I would have loved a power point by the bedside. These days I would think most people would like to plug in their phones/computers and be able to use them while on the bed. Not have to plug them in at the desk. Also I know most hotels don't have it but free wifi in the rooms even if it was only the 30mins of free wifi that you get in the lobby would have been excellent.
However these are only minor issues and if I get a chance to come back to Rotorua I will be sure to look at staying at the Holiday Inn again.
