We had a Club Room which has an excellent view of the lake, continental breakfast, and happy hour. It is also across the street from Polynesian Spa which is the main reaon we stayed there. It is a very large complex with lots of tourist groups. So the hotel is very busy. But a Club Room avoids the congestion.
Good, friendly service. Very comfortable room. Had dinner in the restaurant - excellent. Lovely location.
Welcome and Farewell gestures by management Quality of diner: a little pretentious
Comfotable rooms - excellent restuarant, rooms abit too warm one of our party did not have her details and room added prior arrival
Great facilities. Lovely large room overlooking the lack and spa complex. Paying the extra to get this view was so worth it. Looking forward to staying again.
relaxing with family and frirends spa room had lecking roof but it it was under repair so no problem
The hotel was in a central location within easy walking distance to the city centre. The facilities were very good as was the service.
we have stayed there a number of times and like the general atmosphere, appearance and services and proximity to city centre
Convenience for local amenities and value for money
I very much enjoyed the spa where I had two treatments. The staff were very helpful and friendly. The bathroom badly needs updating, and some more towel rails! I found it difficult having a shower in a narrow bath with a rounded bottom. I kept hitting my head on the shower head! Good pressure though.
very helpful staff friendly and did thier best to accomidate all wants. room needed to be vaccumed under the beds when i dropped some thing the rolled under the bed their was all sorts of small bits and pieces under the beds rubber bands and bits of platic etc
Affordable Great location Bed was uncomfortable A/C had limited cooling
good value for money;courtesy of staff; location; quiet and relaxed no
The bathroom; powerful shower that remained at a constant temperature and was spacious. Lack of car parking on site.
friendly stuff, nice enviroment, very convenient to all facilities NA
location, warm staff smell of sulpher close by
Location good, handy walking distance to town, lake front, museum, restaurants. nice view over lake. Comfortable, spacious room. Hard to find a fault, but I dont think there was air conditioning.
Location is close to the lake as stated in website and the room in general is spacious for two. Also, the location of the room I was given was not as expected. The coffee/tea maker was not clean the color was more towards green instead of bright white. I could not make any coffee or tea.
Very good value for money, reasonably central location, comfortable room and friendly staff Although the room was not too bad, the hotel is sited downwind of the pretty foul smelling Lake Rotorua
The choice at the buffet breakfast
Hot Spa Baths and the entertainment. Did not like the strong sulphur smells.
The old world charm and ambience and the professsionalism of the staff The room was a bit small
Loved the contemporary feeling in a very old hotel. Would be nice to have had bathrobes and full house wifi.
This hotel had a very personal atmosphere and it was an interesting place for its heritage and charm. The staff were friendly and helpful. It was close to the centre of town and close to the beautiful gardens so was perfect for our needs.
Personal service of staff. Close to everything in Rotorua. Comfortable and felt like staying in someone's home. Just felt a bit "worn" and a couple of things needed to be cleaned better like the phone and the outside of the cupboards in my kitchenette. The wall paper inside the entryway was all buckled and loose.
good central location and attractive building, helpfull staff quickly rectified small problem, large,comfotable room.
The situation and the building
The hotel character and fine dining (which was not expensive neither). The pool area needs some maintenance.
Hotel staff were all excellent...helpful, polite and well presented. For a 'city hotel' it was remarkably quiet, mindful that we spent only a Saturday night there. Not surprisingly, the hotel is showing signs of its age and in instances, looked "tired". Unavoidably, the only way to reach the Steiner Room was by going outside...in wet weather, not all that desirable.
Convenience to town & restaurants; free parking; spacious suite Would have liked to have washing machine in the suite instead of at communal area. The apartment is a little dated (70s-80s).
The old unique/antique set-up. The rooms having an outside corridor, not too nice on cold rainy days
Hot pools onsite, storage shed for bikes No
Close to the City centre with a good selection of restaurants nearby. The room was clean and comfortable. The shower was modern and worked extremely well. Reception was friendly. Ample parking in street outside the motel. nothing to dislike.
Comfortable and we were left to ourselves. Great weekend
internet was free There are many long term staff using the kitchen and taking up all the fridge space with big boxes. The kitchen is extremely busy during cooking time. Loud music playing after 11PM downstairs. Dec was hot that you cannot close the window, so it is noisy
The staff was really friendly and provided us with a lot of information and suggestion on things to do in the area. The location is also great and within walking distance to the city center and bus station and thermal pools in town. The room felt a little bit damp and had a slight odor, but it was not that big of a deal to make it uncomfortable.
