The hotel is in a central location in Rotarua and is a cheap base. I have read some of the other reviews on here and it is right that the it is pretty much on top of a loud irish bar (which is not part of the hotel), but we didn't find that it was too bad - we have stayed in worse places noise-wise (try any of the Base hostels!!!). I think it is the economy rooms that are located near the loud bar - one of which we had. The hotel is anything but "grand" and is quite shabby, but for the price we paid we certainly cannot complain.
The owners were incredibly helpful and gave us a lot of good tips about things to see and do in Rotorua. Breakfast was also good - cereal, toast, juice and coffee. For what we paid this was incrediby good value.
