    Relaxed atmosphere and anyone on the staff willing to help with anything. Awesome group.

    Most of the gym equipment was not working. Disappointing because this was important to me

    I liked the rooms and pool. also the the food was great. loved the breakfast and room service. I loved the lobby it was very inviting. I got a great deal online so the price was great.

    In our hotel room we had a menu for the food but it was on a old piece of paper that was faded. It would be nice if those were re-printed and presented nicely.

  • Older travelers
    8.0

    The rooms were spacious and the furniture really nice...not tacky. The dining room was funky, with the umbrellas and waterfall in the background. Having a spa in the room was great. Location was really handy for town. Facilities provided were good, in the rooms, like iron, hair dryer.

    I thought the room service was poor. The sign re servicing it was hung on the door handle but it did not happen. We requested some extra milk cartons and it took two hours and an reminder to get them. Certain reception staff (not all) could have been a bit more friendly....it is after all the hospitality industry.

    Quiet,nice comfortable room,awesome spa,good room service,clean,

    We had a minor disaster with the room above overflowing thereb spa filling our ceiling with water on our wedding night. Dissapointed with the fact we were still awake at 11-00pm waiting for the night manager to inspect. Only offerred a breakfast as a form of compensation for wrecking our wedding night...a bit poor I thought.

  • Older travelers

    Large room. Good facilities. Value for money. Comfortable.

    We couldn't open the windows in the spa bathroom due to lake flies and mosquitos which caused condensation to build. Insect screens would be a good idea.

  • Family with children
    9.6

    Indoor pool, gym, large rooms, buffet breakfast and easy access to amenities and central Rotorua - walking distance.

    Rooms could do with a bit of an upgrade particularly the bath/shower with curtain and poor shower - temperature fine, pressure/spray not as good.

  • Family with children
    5.6

    That I got given a good room rate with a discount because our toilet did not flush and just kept running water so we were left without a workable toilet for nearly 5 hours (I complained twice). I also had to call reception on my cell phone because the phone did not work in our room.

    I love having a cup of tea in the morning on my balcony watching the horses training. Stayed previously with kids, great location, pool is wonderful. Breakfast good, equally family/ business friendly. Quiet retreat after a busy day. Room service prompt and pleasant. Arrived in Rotorua early this time and able to use my room straight away before my first meeting.

    No vegetarian option on room service menu. I had ton loads of work to do and didn't want to go down to the restauarant. The fish option was good.
