The lodge is conveniently located at a centre location. Rooms are ok with standard features. The open air sauna pool attached to each room is bit shady. Free parking is available. all in all a good accommodation with above average features.

My partner and I chose to stay at Victoria Lodge because it was one of the few places in Rotorua in our price range with units that had a private mineral spa.

Thank you very much for your feedback, we are planning the renovations and bathrooms are a priority. We do ask all guests to not use the pools after 9 pm in order to not disturb other guests and normally this have been respected but after reading your feedback we will close the water access to the pools after that time...

We booked a double room with a spa which wasn't what we expected at all. It didn't seem very inviting at all and we didn't use it.
