Reviewed 13 November 2017

Love that this hotel is so near to the government garden and the lake. We stayed in the studio room and it was really spacious and it has all the basic that we need; comfy bed, clean toilet with hot water and a small kitchen.

However, during our stay there are also a big group of youngsters (i sound like an aunty, i know), quite rowdy and noisy bunch (having a party?) but luckily the noise stopped at 10pm maybe. And it would help if the front desk and check in process are nicer and friendlier.

Clean. Tidy. Spacious. Reasonably priced and lovely, friendly staff. Great location with restaurants, cafes and shops all within 2-5mins walk. There’s a small pool here and thermal baths which I will check out next visit! I’d say for the price - this place is GREAT! Hence it’s 4* rating. It’s certainly not a 5 * hotel but it’s got everything you need. So if you’re looking for a little luxury you’d be needing to pay a lot more. All depends on your wants and needs. For me, it’s fine.

Brilliant location handy to town and lakefront. Average room (2 bedroom apt) being seperate older building in renovated 1960's decor. Very clean and tidy but showing age through poorly shuttling bathroom door (kids couldn't close it due to frame warping) and numerous dead light bulbs. Would stay again if price was lower. Other rooms probably higher quality looking at them from outside.

This accommodation is really at a very good price at a great location in central Rotorua. With a spa pool and a warm water swimming pool and daily tariff at a little more than 120 NZ dollars is a good bargain.

We have stayed here twice, great value for money and fantastic location with plenty of parking. Easy walking distance to lakefront and Eat Street which has a great selection of restaurants to choose from.
