I often say to people. Why pay top dollar for a room you should be not spending time in it anyway. You should be out experiencing the area. In this case however the weekend we chose to visit rotorua must have been one of the wettest in its history. It basically poured with torrential rain non stop from Friday til Monday. As such most of Rotorua's attractions were out so we had to spend a disproportionate amount of time in the room.
Happily in this case the room was pretty good. The room is standard in most ways having a separate bedroom and lounge area. A small but functional kitchen and a bathroom with a shower over. Overall the room was clean and tidy and reasonably modern It had a good sized LCD screen with a good selection of channels. There is a DVD player and the lend DVD at reception. Didn't do this so can't comment on the selection. The room package came with a breakfast which was standard fare but tasty enough and delivered to the room on time each morning.
The real star thou of this particular room was it has a enclosed/private courtyard with it's own private spa pool. The pool you fill yourself with hot or cold so you can set the temp was just fantastic on a weekend like this and we used it a lot. The only criticism is it has a sunshades over the top which was only like 95% waterproof which meant under this weekends torrent it was dripping through which made reading difficult and the water was a little cold. A minor thing.
I believe the rate including breakfast for 2 was $130 per night. So this was pretty good
Overall a great stay. Whilst the weather ruined the plans for the weekend. In the end it was a relaxing soak in the spa for most of it which was pretty good.
Glad we picked this place. If the price is right we will be back
