It's very difficult to give the Geyserland an overall rating. The condition of the hotel is so bad it's a joke! The building is very old and poorly maintained, and it looks like it has not been touched for years. The whole place is in dire need of a complete refurbishment and given the state it is currently in it will be a big job!
BUT on the other hand it is a cheap place to stay if you're mainly intending to be out and about, and the view from upper floor "Geyser View" rooms is fantastic...you have the geyser right in front of you and a plopping mud pool directly below your window. It's fascinating to watch and where else can you look out of your hotel room and see that?
The hotel reception area actually isn't too bad and the rooms are basic but ok, but the decor is very dated. The hotel facilities are very limited though...and don't expect everything to be in good working order either!
We visited Rotorua regularly over a number of years while living in NZ, and despite the drawbacks we kept returning to stay at the Geyserland. It really is worth staying here for the thermal experience. We always found the staff to be friendly and helpful as well. I just wish that the owners would invest in the place to bring it up to the standard it deserves for being in such a brilliant location!
