The counter lady (sorry not sure if owner or receptionist) was very friendly and made things very easy, recommended us activities to do in Rotorua, and had some discount cards. The room wasn't huge, but it was comfortable and warm, everything were there. Would return. Right opposite the skyline and a few activities, so even though not right in town...

Great welcome, and very accomodating. We had checked we could bring our dog too, and this was no problem. The location is very convenient, and we made full use of the facilities. We used the spa pool, mini golf, had dinner delivered to the room. The food was excellent. The rooms were clean, and comfortable.

This is a very comfortable, well appointed place, with an excellent restaurant. If you ask for apartment 9a, you can have a tree full of native birds right outside your window. But the nicest thing about this accommodation is that the host and all the staff are so friendly and welcoming. For example, there is no extra charge for room...

Unfortunately I arrived at the Braeside just as the weather turned stormy. Accordingly I didn't get to see Rotorua at all. That said, the room was nice (with a beautiful stream behind the back deck), the pool was good and I had a nice salad and cider at the restaurant.
