Stayed here with partner and two children - excellent location on a beautiful lake, trampoline for the children. Friendly staff and decnt dining if you want. Big outdoor chess set and boules area. Stayed here years ago without children and it was fun to come back.

Had a great night at Amora, and the Meals were incredible. Staff very friendly and very personable. As it was off season, there were few people, and we had a lovely quiet afternoon and romantic evening. Would recommend to anyone, and would definitely stay there again.

I want to start off by saying this is a beautiful lake resort, quaint and lovely view. Most importantly away from the sulphur smell. Great food and service at the restaurant! We spent 5 nights at this hotel only because the Duty Mgr., Alan took good care of us. He's a professional and he seemed liked the only one that really cared. Although the rooms are nice and clean, the walls are very thin and you can hear every creak and noise especially if you have a room above you. Duty Mgr.Alan was able to move us to a Suite situated at the end of the hotel only the last 2 nights because it was already booked. The Suite room was comfortable with great view but had 3 sleepless nights in their other downstairs room. Addressed our concerns w/ upper management(Acting General Mgr. & Hotel Mgr) and they didn't seem to really care or believe in providing excellent customer service. Quite frankly, they were the most disappointing part of our stay. In addition, the rooms are outdated especially the TVs and w-fi service is poor and never worked in our rooms. I would have given this resort at least a 4 star but not only does the rooms need updating, hotel management needs to be updated too! The only one that truly cared was the duty mgr. Alan and he is the only asset to this hotel as he is dedicated to providing excellent service! Kudos to you Mr. Alan and thank you for all your help!

Room Tip: The only room worth staying is their Suite room at the end of the hotel or an upstairs room with no room next to you. The view of the lake is stunning!

We would like to thank you for your valued input. In regard to your comments in respect of our managements lack of duty of duty care, you may recall our Acting General Manager did take the time to come see you on his day off to discuss your concerns.That as a consequence he advised our Duty Manager, Alan to allocate and upgrade your party to an one bedroom executive suite whilst honouring your discounted standard room rate. That the Acting General Manager did take the time to personaly assitt with your bags from your room to your car on your depature.

This hotel has great staff, they made the conference we were attending a great success. Free wifi was very handy. Breakfast was generous and dinner options were excellent. Very relaxing location.

This is an idyllic set up, views, food, welcome, friendly staff. Everything you could hope for in a getaway - except for the paper thin walls dividing the rooms. Everything else could not be faulted, quiet, not too far to get to all the attractions and things to do in Rotorua.
