Stayed here for 2 nights. The lakeside view was spectacular and the sound of trickling water from the central pool/ feature was instantly relaxing as you opened your room door in the morning. The atmosphere of the whole place was pure relaxation. Staff were really happy & chatty. Had a massage & facial treatment with volcanic mud from Hell's Gate whilst there too which was amazing! Spa area was great, with robes/slipper provided. There was a lovely bridge & stream through to a small garden which was lovely to walk around, listening to the birds. Jacuzzi and heated pool was fab in the evening with a glass of wine - except for we got swarmed by midges at sunset! Rooms were nice, everything we needed, compact - but who stays in their room when there's a spa a few steps away?! Loved Rotorua!
