“Nice, but......”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 2, 2012

Great location within walking distance of shops and cafes, trendy contemporary decor, good service and comfortable. However, the rooms are small, and unfortunately for us we had noisy families with active toddlers either side, and had to be moved on the second night. Although it has been nicely restored from an old motel, we didn't think it was worth $230 a night, but then Rotorua is expensive and geared up for tourists.

We spent 2 nights in a 2 bedroom suite which was just superb. Service was excellent, staff was very friendly and helpful. Well stocked mini bar, free wifi (100mb per device) but there's no limit to devices. We had 4 iPhones and an iPad and received a 100mb voucher for each. The beds are superb and the robes are not to be missed. Location is perfect, right around the corner from 'Eat Street', the restaurant stretch in Rotorua. I forgot my watch which was promptly sent back to me. Great experience !

A very comfortable stay centrally located.
Very well decorated and stylish. Good facilities for size of apartments. Staff very helpful with information of where to go sightseeing and eating etc.
Would defiantly go back if in the area again!

Room Tip: Rooms around the pool seemed to be the best!

Great place, as stated in the reviews on trip advisor. Stylish decor, very comfy beds, lovely cotton sheets and feather pillows. Would have liked to sample the restaurant for dinner tonight, but it's not that big and was booked out - suggest you ring and book ahead. Would recommend highly

Great hotel - looks like a 70's concrete motel from the outside but fantastically renovated. Staff friendly and helpful.
Great location for sightseeing. Close to cafes & restaurants and the Polynesians Spa.
