Despite what the previous two reviews on TripAdvisor say, I dug a bit deeper and found plenty more reviews on other web sites, the vast majority of which were positive. Yes, the hotel is quite old, but it is rather well kept and clean. You cannot beat the value - two bedrooms on two floors, full kitchen and a hot tub for way much less than the competition. With a great supermarket (Countdown) just down on Fenton street, the kitchen is extremely useful. Speaking of which - Fenton St appears to be the main touristic drag and most hotels are situated along it. This hotel is pretty much at the end of the hotel stretch of this street with Rotorua i-site located on the other end. Te Puia is located within a walking distance from the hotel.
The housekeeping did a terrific job; they even washed the dishes that we forgot to wash ourselves.
Don't bother looking for a Comfort Inn logo when looking for the hotel - as of late May 2010 they still had the The Gwendoline Court sign.
