Positive Reviews

Stylish and comfortable rooms

Most travellers are completely charmed by the guest rooms, describing them as stylish, comfortable, and very clean. After a long day of sightseeing or travel, guests appreciate the touches of luxury in the rooms, such as the fluffy bathrobes and spacious monsoon showers, as well as their more practical amenities such as a microwave and a few dishes.

A great location for foodies

Few guests fail to mention the hotel's location just around the corner from Rotorua's fabulous Eat Street. Travellers appreciate the convenience of having so many dining options within a short walk. Sightseers also comment that many of Rotorua's best shops and sights (Government Gardens, the lakefront, Kuirau Park) are also within a comfortable walking distance, allowing them to leave their cars securely parked in the free spots on site.

Friendly and attentive staff

Guests often comment that "nothing is too much trouble" for the knowledgeable, professional, and friendly staff. Compliments also go to the chef and wait staff in the on-site restaurant; guests thoroughly enjoy the lunch and dinner dishes, as well as the elegant yet relaxed, poolside atmosphere.

Negative Reviews

Prepare to take the stairs

Guests warn their fellow travellers with heavy bags or mobility concerns that the two-storey building is not equipped with a ramp or lift.

A restless night, for some

Some parts of the older property are not particularly well sound-proofed, as guests report sleep disturbances due to voices and footsteps in the hallway, or else loud music from neighbouring buildings.

Plan on going out for breakfast

Though the dinner menu generally gets rave reviews, the breakfast buffet has been found wanting in variety, quantity, or quality.
