Be aware that they will overbook and then tell you to get a refund from your booking company if they can get a booking that sells more rooms. We had a paid and confirmed booking and they overbooked us for a bigger party. They did have the courtesy to ring and tell me, but a paid confirmed booking should be just that.

We stayed in an executive suite with an outdoor spa. The unit was a decent size, it was fairly modern looking, decorated neutrally, and four towels were provided. But overall it was disappointing.

The room has not been maintained well, and it was not clean. We arrived to find a pube on the toilet seat, there was dust on the bedside tables and when I ran my finger along the bathroom vanity it came back covered in goodness knows what. I would expect that surfaces like that would at least be wiped down between guests.

The beds were cheap and rickety, and there was no couch so it wasn't a comfortable room to relax in during the evening.

We had a fairly sleepless night thanks to the guests next door, and were woken up the next morning by housekeeping banging on the door and then almost immediately opening the door while we were scrambling to get some clothes on. I was all a bit much, so we checked out early.

It's an OK place to stay, but it's very average and does not live up to it's "Executive" name. Which is a pity, because it could if they only put in a bit more effort.

Very nice room and overall a good stay but housekeeping had not noticed and cleaned a cigarette butt from under the bedside table. The cigarette butt bucket outside the door was full and not cleaned during our two day stay. The room was serviced with clean towels and kitchen cloths each day but the rubbish was not emptied. Very nice breakfast each morning. Excellent bistro across the road - although a little expensive.

We booked 4 rooms in october and were not disappointed. Handy location and right next door to Urbano cafe that sold really nice brunch food. The host was brilliant, and the room was well appointed, also had spa baths in all the rooms we booked and were nice and spacious.

I can't rate this place highly enough, a group of four of us staying down there for sub $50 a night each it excellent. Facilities were great, staff were excellent - MUCH better than staying in a hostel! Couldn't fault a thing, surpassed my expectations. Will stay here again on my next trip down. They even offered to drop us off at the pub on a VERY busy RWC night!

We stayed at the Executive twice and both time had a great experience of friendly service and nice, clean, modern and comfortable rooms with great facilities for a very good price.
The location is excellent with only a short stroll to the city centre.
We just booked again and looking forward to another comfortable weekend in Rotorua.
