VR Rotorua Lake Resort

Reviewed 29 August 2017 via mobile

Stayed for 2 nights (2 adults and 2 children). Very competitively priced and in a really nice part of Rotorua.
Room had a lake view, with direct access from the room to the garden area - loads of geese there, and unfortunately loads of goose poo, so needed to spend time outside dodging it.
Gym was disappointing. Didn't try food in the resort.
Would definitely consider using it again.

Stayed: August 2017

Had a good stay in Rotorua. The hotel is a 10 minute drive from Rotorua. The settings and lake are beautiful and the room was nice as well. The value for money was amazing. Super cheap offers in winter. Please be aware of non biting lake flies and tons of geese poop on the lawn.

Nice lake view room. Just don't open the balcony door or windows to avoid the trout flies from flying in: although non voting types. Good clean and decent size room. Bed in the soft side. Depending on other guests, can be slightly noisy at nights due to insufficient soundproofing. About 15m to town centre. Pretty convenient location.

VR Rotorua seems like great value for money, although they frequently have deals on sites like Grab One, Groupon, Treatme etc. I believe my stay reflected great value for money. I had stayed here previously about a year ago and not much has changed, I believe the outside of the building has been painted which made it look much more appealing. The rooms are a pretty good size, with their own controllable heat pump which is great! The bathroom seems to be a bit dated and could probably do with a bit of an update however the bath is full size and underfloor heating which is a nice touch. The water pressure was great in the shower. The bed/pillows are also super comfy. I'd stay again just based on having all the amenities and price paid.
