We plan to stay in Rotorua for two nights in mid December. We would like to find a very nice place, perhaps a luxury hotel or lodge or house. These will be our last two nights in New Zealand before departing from Rotorua Airport and back to the US. It does not need to be in the center of town. We will have a car. We have read about sulfur smells, so we’d like to try to avoid that in the place we stay if possible. We would prefer a nice view. We are really not interested in the spa facilities. Some we have considered are Astelia Lodge, Wai Ora, The Regal Palms Five Star City Resort, Nicara. We would really appreciate some advice about which would be our best choice – or another recommendation.
